This year when making arrangements for our annual pilgrimage to Tuscany (Cortona Area), we were discussing places to stay with our Italian friends and they recommended a place a bit off the beaten path in Tuoro sul Trasimemo.  Il Capricci di Merion. Please don’t get put off by the words agriturismo on the website. This is an entry level luxury resort with it’s own spa, outdoor pool and beautiful gardens.

On arrival, we were warmly greeted by the staff that could not do enough to accommodate my very fussy  wife. Being a slow week at the Inn, they allowed us to tour several rooms and choose the one of our liking.  They were all fully equipped with all the features one would expect at an upscale resort, including high thread count linens.  All the rooms had en suite bathrooms, some with showers others with tubs and showers.  I would recommend you view the rooms on their website and choose which is best suited for you or trust their recommendations.

We decided to have lunch our first day in Capricci di Merion’s picturesque restaurant. The food was all home made and authentic. I would highly recommend that you have at least one meal in house.

Having stayed at many fine Hotels, Inn’s and B&B’s worldwide, We can say that Capricci di Merion is world class and should not be missed on your next trip to Italy.
