“Perfect honeymoon location”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

Just back from 4 wonderful days at this hotel. Everything about this place is magical but the setting probably has to be the trump card. Lying by the pool amongst the olive trees gazing out over the Umbrian hills you feel like you are dreaming.

We stayed in the duchess suite which I would highly recommend. Large bed, lots of space and a shower that would probably fit 6 people. It was 40 degrees when we were there but even with the windows open at night it was beautifully quiet.

Breakfast was incredible. My husband and I love our food so enjoyed tucking into all the fresh fruit and home made cakes. The view from the breakfast room reminded me of EM Forster's ROOM with a view. Truly stunning. Get to breakfast early to make sure you get one of the 2 tables with the view.

We chose to spend our honeymoon here and we have no regrets. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is that the dinner service was a little slow and we felt the food was a bit too expensive. There was only one waiter so when the restaurant was busy he had too much to do. However he was a delightful man, as are all the staff. We met Lucia Lucia and Leonardo and they have to be the nicest reception staff I have ever met on my world travels.

You must go and stay here. You will not regret it.

While there defo drive to Gubbio and take the birdcage style cable car up the mountain. It's an experience you will never forget.

Room Tip: Duchess suite a winner.

Castello di Petroia is a delightful place to stay and dine in the Perugia area. It is very well located for visiting the area. We stayed there for 2 nights at the end of March; and took day trips out to Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Orvieto, Cortona and other locations. As other reviewers have commented, it is a magical place. Despite our visit being in the off season, they were fully staffed at the front desk and in the dining room. The 2 evening meals that we ate in the dining room during our stay were the best 2 in our 3 week trip to Italy and Switzerland. The staff (Lucia, Lucia, and Paulo ) and owner Carlo Sagrini went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure that our stay enjoyable. They helped us considerably by doing some online research and then calling and negotiating in Italian (which we couldn't do) to make reservations for our next destination. Every aspect of our stay was first class at very attractive room rate and menu prices. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for visitors to Umbria.

We have just returned from a lovely holiday at the Castello. We stayed for 10 days and it is truly a magical place, the trees were just turning colour, the mist was just hovering in the mornings and you could just imagine yourself in a fairytale castle.
The receptionists, Leonardo, Lucia and Virginia are really helpful and speak excellent English and we would like to thank them all for their hints and tips as to where to go and what to see. The Castello is situated quite centrally for many city's inc. Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi, Spello, Largo Trasimeno and not forgetting the beautiful mountains. Whilst there don't miss out on going for a walk, the fields, lanes and countryside are so pretty.
We would like also to thank Dr Carlos Sagrini for showing us around and wish him luck with his future restorations.
Breakfast is served in an amazing dining room with 12th century fireplaces and the cake and pastries are quite delicious. Also Fidelma (I hope this is spelt correctly) makes a great cappuccino and helped us improve our Italian.
Thank you one and all for making our holiday so special

We arrived on a rainy day. Incredibly atmospheric. As per the other reviewers, the castle is wonderfully restored in-and-outside. Friendly staff, who was very understanding in resolving a booking snafu. At night, looking through the window at the moon over the surrounding forest, or walking outside, one could imagine being there hundreds of years ago. Nice pool in great setting. Large rooms. Classy stuff.

We stayed in Castello di Petroia for 2 nights in September 2011.
This was a great experience much beyond our expectations. The castle is not only a spectecular fairy tale building from outside, but the inner parts are also very successfully renovated. The needs of the modern traveller are very well met, while preserving the medivial soul of the castle.
We found out that the castle dates back from 12th century. It originally belonged to the duc of Urbino Federico da Montefeltro who was born in the castle. If you have visited Uffizi Galleries in Florence, then you may remember his profile with a very caharcteristic nose which became one with the Uffizi galleries.
Breakfast is served at the room where the original fire place dating from 12th century still stands. The pastry is delicious and the coffee is extremely good in quality (best Americano we had in Italy).
Dinners are served in a mediveal environment. The chef is prima. Ask for tagliatella with truffle (don't miss it).
We thank to Leonardo, Virginia and especially the beautiful Lucia (who always smiled warmly) at the front desk.
Dr. Carlo Sagrini is the owner who created this wonderful place to become true. We thank him for his warm hospitality which made us feel very special.

Room Tip: Ask for the Duchess's suite :)

We stayed 8 nights at the Castello and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The rooms are large and well appointed. The staff is great and I will avoid mentioning names in fear that I will miss someone! Everything is very low key to the point that you think the castle is all yours. Breakfasts are served in a room that looks like it is out of a hollywood movie and the dining room is cozy and inviting. The staff is very helpful in planning out your daily adventures. This is the place to stay for Gubio!
