The Nun Assisi Relais & Spa Museum is located in the spiritual heart of Assisi, in the highest part of the historic city, affording a magnificent view of the two ancient fortresses, Rocca Maggiore and Rocca MInore, and the gently curving slopes of Mount Subasio. This exclusive 5-star relais is the result of a careful remodelling of the ancient monastery of St. Catherine, built in 1275.
Its 18 suites overlook the Umbrian valley from a dominant position, only a few steps away from the centre of Assisi - the town of Saint Francis -, but maintain a welcome aloofness from the more animated central streets. Respect for the history of this ancient place is the reason why the medieval structure of monastery was preserved in every detail throughout the restoration works. In the large rooms, all of them unique, between niches, frescoes and barrel vaults, high-tech comfort envelops body and mind in a sensation of elegant formal sobriety, fully in keeping with the sensation of spiritual calmness emanating from the ancient stone. The pure white colours and the diaphanous finishes of the furniture are engaged in a seamless, incessant dialogue between the complicity of the past and the lightness of contemporary design.
Nun is a refuge for body and soul. Nun is timeless tranquillity, a space where to regain one’s inner harmony.
