“Highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

We had the great pleasure of staying 4 nights at the Castello di Petroia in early July 2013. Staying at this wonderfully unique castle was a highlight of our trip (this was following 5 nights at the St. Regis in Rome). The service provided by the staff was top notch and they went out of their way to make sure our every need was met.

My wife has celiac disease and therefore requires gluten free food – the staff went above and beyond to make sure she was happy and had what she needed – both for our breakfasts at the castle (in a beautiful room with 2 enormous fire places from the 15th century) as well as the amazing meals in the restaurant. After our first dinner, we knew that we would be eating at the castle each of the nights during our stay – the chef is fantastic – and these were our best meals throughout our time in Italy (not an easy thing to achieve). On 3 of the nights we chose our meals off of the menu; however, on one night the castle was hosting a special dinner and presentation from a local professor – the topic was the importance of locally grown agriculture. Each of the 5 courses represented local seasonal food (all items that can be found on the castle’s grounds) and the professor described the importance of them – these types of dinners are hosted 3 or 4 times a year. We felt like it was a special treat to participate and the courses were all wonderful.

Our room was great – a very large suite (I believe the largest in the castle) called the Stanza Federico Dux with 2 rooms, hall, and bath and amazing views out over the valley. The setting for the castle could simply not be better – remote, with beautiful landscapes of rolling hills, valleys and a castle in the faraway distance.

Our 7 year old daughter also loved staying in the castle, enjoying the use of the pool, and being treated well by the staff. We met the castle owner on a number of occasions and it is clear that he loves to share his family’s castle so that others may enjoy it as well. From the hotel we made day trips to many area towns – Spoleto, Spello, Gubbio, Assisi, Montefalco.

Our stay at Castello di Petroia will be long remembered.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms look beautiful, but we wanted a suite so that our daughter had her own room - we we...

We stayed in the Castello for 3 nights. It is absolutely unique place! It dates back to 11 century AD, has a rich history, Frederico de Montefeltro was born there. For the past 100 years or so it belongs to the family who converted it into a luxury hotel. Large comfortable rooms with wood beams on the ceiling , my guess, they are about 500 years old.Our suite had Jacuzzi tub. It was sparkly clean. The staff was fantastic, they accommodated every request we had, including my teenage son wanting to rent Vespa. They went our of their ways to make everything perfect! The restaurant was outstanding! We had one of the best meals in Italy and that is hard considering how good Italian food is.I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite, it is worth extra expense

I visted Petroia with my dad and mom for one night.
Our schedule was very tight so we arrived the castel around midnight.
But the castel was twinkling brightly as if it is an early evening, and some people ran out to say hello to us as soon as we arrived at the door.
We got an impression that people of the castel was not sleeping to wait for us.
When we got in our room, we surprised.
The room was really warm, already.
They've already operated a heater for us not to feel cold from the first time.
They even gave us the larger room than we reservated.
The next day, on the way to go to Spello, they gave us another generous helping.
We were in a difficulty to find a good trasportation to our hotel in Spello.
The owner of the castel, the man I cannot forget for ever, took us there by himself.
The way to get there was not easy, but he asked people how to get there several times, and finally took us to our destination.
I remember his silent voice, warm eyes.
I promised him that I will get back there in a few years.
And I will.
I felt that Petrioa is not a place for making money but a place for making people happier and giving people as much as they can.
I wanna meet Dr.Carlos and the people there soon again.
And I hope they also could remember me, Asha.

I highly recommend Castello di Petroia. It is a real castle and the rooms are very comfortable. The staff is extremely helpful and nice, both at reception and at the restaurant. The food at the restaurant is extremely good, try their home salad with greens and fruits, it is excellent. Unfortunately it was cold and rainy when we stayed there so we did not enjoy the swimming pool or the garden. But it was nice to be in a heated place after having walked a whole day under the rain and the castle was heated which was very much appreciated as the other hotels we stayed at during the same period where not heated and were therefore rather uncomfotable, especially the bathrooms.

The only small negative point at the Castello is that you can sometimes hear the noise from the other rooms, especially if like us you have an agitated child in the next room.

But I would love to stay there again, especially with warm and sunny weather.

Didn't stay at the hotel, just ate at the restaurant.
Excellent food with a good selection for vegetarians.
Furthermore the staff were very helpful with two gluten-intolerant guests.
Wonderful evening in a classic location.

We came to Italy to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday and he wanted to stay in an authentic medieval castle. For 2 nights we stayed in the tower that was built before the 14th century. Although you will need to climb a lot of steep stairs the effort is well worth it! We also stayed in a "less challenging" part of the hotel in a "superior" room #33, which was huge and comfortable. Breakfast was generous including croissant, meats, cheese, eggs, juice, and many cakes etc. The cappuccini were great. We also ate dinner there each night. The food is wonderful and Paolo, the maitre'd, is a true professional. The 4 course chef tasting menu is a wonderful value. All the staff were very helpful and pleasant. We appreciated meeting Dr. Sagrini, the owner.
