REDEFINING
THE WAY
WE LIVE AND WORK

Sometimes, we just need some time and space to focus on something important. Because we want to make it great, not just mediocre.

 

True brilliance, creativity, and innovation have a hard time among the constant noise, interruptions, or the relentless demands of daily life.

A NEW WAY TO RECHARGE YOUR BATTERIES

We created a sanctuary for thinkers, creators, and dreamers who want to rediscover their passion, to dive deep into their work, and to emerge with something not just completed, but transformed into a masterpiece. It's a place where the work you do isn't just a task; it becomes the fuel for your life, a source of energy and exhilaration that propels you forward.

NO-BS POLICY

We believe in the power of privacy, autonomy, and the luxury of having the space to think without the need to explain, justify, or interrupt your flow for the sake of politeness.

Suflora's fully-equipped apartments are designed as your private think-tank, where you can work, cook, eat, rest, and create at your own pace, surrounded by the inspiring beauty of Umbria.

GREEN, EVERYWHERE. FOR THE EXTRA DOSE OF CREATIVITY.

Nature... Scientifically proven to enhance creativity, clarity, and well-being, the natural surroundings of Suflora offer a backdrop that not only inspires but actively contributes to the creative process. Whether it's through the lush garden with plenty of seating areas, the paths winding through the valley, or the act of planting seeds in the vegetable garden, nature is a constant companion and muse at Suflora.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US:

FLORIAN AND SUSANNE

At one point in our lives, we noticed that the quality of our relationships deteriorated. Not because we were physically absent, but because we were mentally scattered. You know the feeling; you're sitting at dinner, but your mind is juggling work tasks, grocery lists, and that birthday present for your mother-in-law you keep forgetting to buy. It's the "you're here, but you're not really here" and the "did you even hear what I just said?" that we began to hear over and over again. It's missing the small details, like buying bread on your way home, or remembering a name when it really matters. Overwhelmed and trying to multitask, our brains end up dropping the ball.

That's why we created Suflora. For us, Suflora isn't just a getaway, but a sanctuary where focus can flourish.

 

It's about the oh-so-important side-effect that nature offers: getting back into the here-and-now, effortlessly. It's the deep breath you take when you see a light-blue butterfly landing on a bright-red flower in the midst of greenery. Or when you notice the scent of the mandarin-flowers on your way through the garden. Or when you feel the warmth of the first ray of sunshine on your skin, while watching it rise over a magical scenery of misty valleys. 

 

We combined our love for Umbria - that magnificent, wild, raw, inspiring landscape - with our love for secluded, yet easily reachable places and, after a very long time of searching, found this estate in the Valley of Genius. In 2022, we moved here from Germany, and we poured our hearts into renovating this space, equipped with experience of hundreds of vacation apartments we had stayed in. We had long lists of goods and bads we noticed during our stays, and these influenced every decision we made while renovating and designing the apartments. 

 

Suflora has now turned into a space that gives you room to do one thing at a time, brilliantly. It's a place designed for those kinds of projects that demand your undivided attention, where your biggest ideas can take shape, uninterrupted. We believe that by breaking up our time - really compartmentalizing life, we can recharge our batteries a whole lot more efficiently and longer-lasting. Because the energy boost after a task well-done is simply unbeatable.

 

It's here, among the olive trees and under the Umbrian sky, that we hope you will find your focus, your creativity, and your energy.

A COMMITMENT THAT MAKES YOU ACT

It's a commitment to yourself, to your craft, and to the life you want to lead.

 

Booking a stay with us is a bold statement of prioritizing what truly matters, allowing you the time and space to focus on projects that not only advance your career but also enrich your life.

READY FOR YOUR ANTI-VACATION?

This isn't a retreat from the world; it's a dive into the depths of your own potential. It's where you come to unplug from the distractions of everyday life and plug into your own inner genius. Suflora is a celebration of the mind, a tribute to the thinkers who have always dared to dream big, and an invitation to you to do the same.
