About usSophisticated hospitality with a family flavour
The story of San Potente is the story of a tradition based on agriculture and hospitality It is the tale of a family deeply rooted in the soil, that strongly believes in authenticity, generosity and quality
San Potente is the story of the Tonti family and their love for Umbria. The same love inherited our Grandmother (I prefer not to use the term ‘Grandma”. Too familar.) Vanda. It was her affection for her birthplace of Rasiglia which led her to fund renovations of the local “Castello dei Trinci” walls. The same walls that today gloriously embrace the Residence Menotre. “Nonna” Vanda also promoted the creation of a small museum devoted to the local weaving tradition for future generations.
The same passion for the soil is the one that pushed Paolo to produce an extraordinary Extra Virgin Olive oil, a few miles away from Assisi. After restoring the beautiful 27 acres olive grove, Paolo renovated its ancient stone farmhouse that today is Villa Rosy.
In the ‘90’s, Vanda and Paolo began the family adventure to share the agricultural production of their unique Extra Virgin Olive Oil with visitors looking for an unforgettable Umbrian experience. This endeavor is wisely managed by Paolo, Luciana and Corinna with the support of Ilaria and Micol and the smiles of Alice and Olivia. At Villa Rosy and Residence Menotre you won’t find only a bed and a luxurious breakfast, but you will find genuine hospitality, quality gourmet products, relaxation and many valuable tips on things to see and do in order to live Umbria in a sustainable way.
