The review concerns the room/bungalow and restaurant. We have had a room very noisy close to the fridge area and barely acceptable for the price we paid. The restaurant is good but nothing special, in this area you can find terrific restaurant. If you go here to listen Jacobo is really worth but I'd select a different accommodation.

Having read about this place, it sounded like a tranquil spot with delicious local food - so we wnt for lunch. Well. we were negatively surprise tp find that it's a hippie community, with bowls of pre-cooked food plonked on a table in youth-camp style and everyone digging in - not only with knives and forks. The food was not...

Excellent location, friendy people. A place where you can meet artists from all over the world or you can just relax with watsu (Il Watsu è un trattamento alternativo che si svolge in vasche di acqua calda (35° circa). Il nome deriva dalla contrazione di "Water" ("acqua" in inglese) e Shiatsu.) and so many things to do and not to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Free University of Alcatraz is a cultural association with housing and organic restaurant founded by Jacopo fo 1981 Alcatraz is not like the usual hotels, it is much more! It is not constituted by a single building, but by a series of colored cottages and villas situated on a hill in the woods in a museum park with dozens of sculptures and art installations. Besides the courtesy, efficiency and hectares of forest, we offer a restaurant with two dining rooms and al fresco dining, two pools (one summer and one with hot water), a hall for musical events, activities, lessons and meetings. Our organic restaurant is reviewed by the Slow Food Guide and our kitchen is unmatched: mediterranean, oriental, with top quality products from organic farming, suitable for those who eat meat, but also for vegetarians, vegans and those who have allergies or intolerances. The Free University of Alcatraz is a demonstration center of environmental technologies, for two years we produce more energy than we consume, and in 2011 we received from the Environmental League Award for Energy Efficiency. We organize yoga demenziale classes, Theater, Tai Chi, juggling, Watsu, comic-therapy and writing, music festivals, forest hiking, cooking classes, shiatsu massages, reflexology and artistic and creative workshops. But you can also come to Alcatraz to do nothing, and maybe just lie down on the lawn to enjoy nature! We are easily accessible from Perugia being halfway between Perugia and Gubbio in the Santa Cristina fraction. The menu at the buffet is always different, every time you will find different dishes, expertly paired: 2 starters, 1 first, 1 second, 2 side dishes, a buffet of fresh vegetables, 1 sweet or fruit, bread, seeds and various seasonings. The bread, pickles, mayonnaise, jams and desserts are all homemade. Here the dishes evolve continuously and in a creative manner starting from biologically certified raw materials. To drink at Alcatraz bar you will find water, wine from organically grown grapes (some with custom labels), organic beer, organic juices and many drinks ... we will not find the "Coca-Cola" but only "organic cola". Tap water is free. And we would also like to remember that the pleasure of food does not end in the kitchen. "Around Alcatraz is a huge protected forest and we took this huge cost because we have discovered that spaghetti alla carbonara have a different fragrance, resound on the palate if you are placed in a chlorophyll universe of space." Jacopo Fo ... more   less
