The Borgo dei Conti Resort in Perugia, Italy, is open after an extensive restoration.

The resort offers 58 guestrooms and eight apartments, some of them within turrets and towers.

Located on about 49 acres (20 hectares) of woods and olive groves, the property dates back to the 13th century, when it was a fortress. In the 19th century, it was owned by Lemmo Rossi Scotti, a painter and the Count of Montepetriolo, who made significant changes to the residential complex.

The interior of the hotel blends modern design and ancient structures. Original details such as fireplaces, painted ceilings, frescoes, inlays and old window panes feature in the design.

The Lemon House restaurant offers traditional flavors of the Umbrian and Tuscan region in national and international cuisine, set in a Neo-Gothic building.

The spa offers saunas, a Turkish bath, multi-sensory showers and a relaxation area.

Fitness opportunities include tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, as well as an outdoor swimming pool (with a pool bar) and a gym. The resort also offers free use of mountain bikes.

In terms of event space, Borgo dei Conti has a conference hall with large terraces, an outdoor amphitheater, and a private chapel with original decorations and frescoes.
