“Fancy a Nick Drake number performed on lute with your dinner? How about a late-night improv game after a round of limoncello (lemon liquor) that you helped make? For a retreat like no other, recharge for a few days at the B&B arm of the Art Monastery Projec (www.artmonastery.org). Casale Santa Brigida (www.casalesantabrigida.org, €35/person/night, parking, wifi) is a guest house / agristurimo that houses resident artists and performers affiliated with the Art Monastery, but it is open to guests year-round. You’ll get the requisite pink sunsets over the terrace, swimming pool with view over the idyllic countryside below, and odd wild boar jogging past, but you’ll also experience working side-by-side in the permaculture garden, learning to bake bread, or starting your morning with yoga on the terrace. Just over an hour from Rome in the far southern tip of Umbria near undiscovered Calvi dell’Umbria (the Art Monastery itself is in the middle of this picture-perfect town), the Casale folks will gather you at Fiumicino for €60 or at the nearby Orte or Civita Castellana train stations.”
