San Flaviano Retreat

This is a truly unique centre that comprises the XV Century Parish of San Flaviano in Piaggia, Sellano Perugia.

This is a truly unique centre that comprises the XV Century Parish of San Flaviano in Piaggia. The church is dedicated to the 4th century Archbishop of Constantinople San Flaviano and was used as a resting place for pilgrims on the route to Assisi. The frescoes over and around the alter area are from the 15th century and have been restored where possible. There are beautiful watercolors of San Flaviano and St. Francis of Assisi along with cherubs and angels.

Over the next 700 years, as the parishioners grew and funds became available, it was enlarged into the local Catholic parish church servicing the community until closing in 1972 when it was deconsecrated. It has reopened its doors in 2014 as a non-denominational spiritual centre, servicing those who also want to take the pilgrimage to their essential selves through a physical, emotional and spiritual pilgrimage.

The rest of the beautiful white stone building was most certainly a monastery and has been newly renovated. It includes a living room / dining room with fireplace, a professional chefs kitchen and 4 double bedrooms each with their own en suite private bathroom.

Another interesting element is that the 4 bedrooms are each off the stone portico. To go from the bedroom to the living room, one actually has to go outside under the portico. The portico in front of the bedrooms looks out onto the lush green hills.

The church has an oak beamed mezzanine added with luxury bathrooms, kitchen, open plan living and sleeping area for individuals or groups. The oldest section of the church, dating back to 10th century, is a small stone building. It later became used as the sacristy and is now a comfortable living room.

The surrounding plot on a hill top is approximately a hectare from which one enjoys peaceful views of the countryside. The property is located on a wonderfully panoramic highland with great views and a lovely wooded surround, the woods are primarily precious oak wood.
