Perched on a hill in Umbria overlooking Lake Trasimeno and surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Il Convento is a testament to understated sophistication and the majesty of nature. Il Convento was first established around 1566 by Capuchin monks - the last of the three major branches of the Orders of Friars Minor.
