FOR DELIGHTFUL DAYS
A holiday retreat with hotel service, La Gioia is an oasis of peace and quiet. Situated in Umbria, the green heart of Italy, La Gioia is a place full of energy, a place of culture, pleasure and warmth. Surrounded by woods, fields and olive groves the solitary estate is a natural paradise far from the everyday hustle and bustle and yet so close to the centre of European culture.
EXPERIENCE THE COUNTRY
Umbria offers a great variety of cultural treasures. Whether in art, architecture or cuisine: history is alive, and the present-day brims with tradition. Here one can still find a piece of unspoiled Italy at its best. Roman antiquity and the Middle Ages, Romanesque and Gothic co-exist side by side – just like rural and urban life.
GROWING A GOOD LIFE
La Gioia’s holiday oasis is surrounded by a protecting 15 hectares of farmland with a lake, forests and pastures where fruit and vegetables are cultivated as well as 1000 olive trees from which we obtain a delicious Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
The Olive Oil
WE CULTIVATE TASTE
Good olive oil is hard to find. Its production is complex and technically demanding. In order to obtain a healthful olive oil with the perfect flavour it takes thorough knowledge of the biological interactions between soil, tree and fruit and of the risks that can occur during and after harvest.
