Italian Monastery for sale

The Hermitage (Eremo) is a monastic complex dating back to the beginning of the 13th century. The recent restoration brought it back to a new life after years of negligence and abandonment.

The Hermitage is protected by a enchanting 60.000 square metres forest with countless botanic species from all over the world; it breathes centuries of history and culture representing its vocation for silence, serenity and peace.

It is the ideal place, where people can find their own space, away from the frenzy of modern life, to live a unique experience, where silence is broken only by the sound of the leaves moved by the wind, by the flowing of the stream that crosses the wood, or by the twittering of the birds in the trees and rocks.

It’s ideal as a retreat, conference centre, location for ceremonies, or a five star hotel.

Short History

The Hermitage of the Cave is also known as the Hermitage of the White Friars. It is situated in the Valley of the Raven (gola del Corvo), between Cupramontana and Poggio Cupro (in the Marche Region).

The first traces regarding the Hermitage date back to the eleventh century; in these caves the monks led a life of prayer, meditation and penance. It was in this hermitage that, in 1520, the Blessed Paolo Giustiniani created and spread the new rules of the monastic congregation ‘Camaldolese of Monte Corona’.

The construction of the entire complex was completed in the late 18th century by the architect Apollonio Trucchi.

A large number of famous religious personalities stayed in the hermitage of the white friars, which was also a source of inspiration for writers and poets such as Luigi Bartolini, Corradi, Bonci, Tesei

Ever since the year 2000, the company Eremo srl works to protect and restore the monastery, a part and a symbol of Italian and Marche history, civilization and religion.

The restoration has brought new life to the Hermitage: today it is home to international conferences, cultural events, exhibitions and prestigious ceremonies.
