The Relais Nun is located in the spiritual heart of Assisi, in the highest part of the historical centre with magnificent views of the both the Rocca Maggiore and Minore on the soft contours of Mount Subasio. It is an exclusive 5 star Relais that came about from the careful restoration of the ancient monastery of Saint Catherine, which was originally constructed in 1275 for a community of Benedictine nuns. Its 18 suites are situated a short distance from the center of Saint Francis’ city in a quiet natural setting. Our love for history has ensured that this ancient place has preserved the details of the mediaeval monastery, designed along the lines of Benedictine rules calling for a “human city” for individuals. Each ample room is unique, with niches, frescoes, cross-vaulted ceilings and yet with all the modern comforts of technology which pleasantly surround the body and the mind with simple elegant formality in complete harmony with the spiritual nature of the ancient stones. The clean light hues and the diaphanous consistency of the furniture are an uninterrupted dialogue between the complicity of the past and the lightness of modern design.
Nun is a refuge for the body and the mind. Nun is timeless tranquility, a place in which to rediscover one’s inner harmony.

About AssisiAssisi should be a perfect Umbrian hill town. It's a tiered, overgrown village of pink and pale-gray stone drawn out along a mountainside and surrounded by a valley patchwork of fields and olive groves. It boasts Roman roots, a glowering castle and twisting alleyways from the Middle Ages, and some of Italy's finest early Renaissance art -- all backed by the brilliant green slope of sacred Mt. Subasio. But this city with a population of less than 3,000 (and shrinking) saw, at the end of the 20th century, an average of 4 to 5 million visitors every year. This constant flood of travelers has polished the usual hill-town charm right off Assisi. Countless pilgrims, art lovers, and just plain curious travelers over the last 700 years have imparted to the town a thick tourist shellac it often can't quite shake even in its quietest, least visited corners. It's no accident the University of Perugia's "tourism studies" program is based here.
All this aside, Assisi is still one of Italy's top sights, ranking with the Colosseum, Pompeii, and Venice's canals. It preserves the remarkably intact portico of a Roman temple on its main square, one of the better-preserved Albornoz Roccas with sweeping views, and a two-story basilica hulking at one end of town that's a festival of frescoes. The basilica showcases the talents of the greatest geniuses of the early Renaissance, both Sienese (Pietro Lorenzetti and Simone Martini) and Florentine (Cimabue and the incomparable Giotto).
