Although hard to find ( look out for brown signs listing hotels as sat navs may not recognise where it is), once you do you will not be disappointed. It is about 10-15 mins beyond Assisi further up in the hillside.
The Castello is beautiful and the room ( junior suite) was gorgeous. Only thing was there is no air conditioning but with both windows open ( and the walls being so thick) this wasn't too bad and that was during August!
Breakfast was plentiful and the evening meal was eaten outside ( beautiful) although it wasn't cheap. Not the best meal I ate in Italy but it was fine although I feel a little overpriced. For the setting however, it was worth it ( and saved the windy road back into Assisi in the evening!!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Far from it all, let yourself be carried away by the silence, colours and scents of the soft Umbrian hills, where what counts is the sunset, the perfume of the earth and flowers. A true oasis of peace where Aldo and Giuseppina's family and their staff welcome guests with courtesy and kindness into the warmth of a private residence,for a holiday in harmony with art and nature. Petrata Castle, an ancient 14th century fortress and its annexed chapel, nestles in the midst of gentle hills on a quiet and sunny plain, 600 metres above sea level and only 6 km from Assisi. Its position of dominance in the surrounding countryside, allows it an wide panoramic view of Assisi and the Umbrian valley. ... more less
