“Genuine hospitality and charming location”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

This is one of the best hotel experiences I've had. The staff are genuine and warm, and very professional. Lucia managed our arrival and made sure everything went smoothly. We arrived past midnight and the owner stayed up to let us in. We stayed in the deluxe suite, on two floors: absolutely charming. The style is classic and fresh. The windows are small so there is less natural light, but that goes with it being a castle! Very spacious and high quality furnishings. The breakfasts are plentiful and the home made apple marmelade is remarkable. The service was great both mornings we stayed. Isabella was so kind, made our morning! The walk around the castle are not too groomed, and feel quite wild, which I loved.

Dear JessicaLo,

your review it's just beautiful! Thank you for highlighting the value of the Castle in all of its aspects (rooms, breakfast, greens around the fortress). We are very proud to be the best hotel you have ever experienced. Definitely the Castle walking paths are a bit wild but, as you said, that’s exactly how we want them to be, cause we are in an untouched environment and we really want to keep it as much “authentic” as possible (very glad you loved it!).
We hope you’ll keep the memory of your stat at the Castle in your hearth and look forward to welcoming you on your future trip to Umbria.

Castello di Petroia is great for those seeking something different and historical. The service was great- when we got lost at night in the rain heading to the hotel (at midnight), hotel staff offered to drive out and meet us and guide us back. The location is good for exploring Gubbio (15km away) and other quaint Umbrian towns. The views over the valley are exceptional, and the pool is a peaceful retreat. The Tower was wonderful, and we didn't mind the stairs, but the big minus was a hand-held shower head instead of an actual shower.

Room Tip: We stayed in the tower- very unique and cool, but don't book this if you have trouble with steep...

My husband and I stayed here one night on our honeymoon as we passed through Umbria and had an amazing time. It was a Monday night in low season so we were the only guests in the castle but they were so nice to us and even opened the restaurant just for us. The food was spectacular...one of the best meals we had on the whole 9 day Italian trip. We stayed in the tower which was really interesting and unique with amazing views. It works better if you're short rather than tall though! :-) The pool area looked lovely though of course it was not open in March. If sleeping in a castle has been a lifelong dream then definitely give Castello di Petroia a try.

Room Tip: Try the tower for something different!

We have stayed in lots of castles before in Spain and Portugal, and this is the real deal. You need to be prepared for the authenticity--stone walls and rooms that can be a bit noisy if you have upstairs neighbors. You are also in the middle of nowhere, but if you like that, as we do, it is wonderful. You are away from city noise and crowds. The restaurant is quite good so there is no reason to travel elsewhere once you check in. Beware of the tower room. Although folks recommend it for the view, it is not as comfortable as the rooms in the main castle. Additionally, the tower has 3 floors with the bathroom two floors below the bedroom---not very easy for going to the bathroom at night.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main castle are great. Spring for the few extra e if you can for a suite room. Bewa...

From the moment we entered, we took a step back in time. Staff were great, the junior sweet with its three levels, internal balcony and loft spa took us back to medieval Italy. The surrounding 600-year old olive trees and acres to explore were so special. It is close to Gubbio for day trips, but we also enjoyed simply lying under the big shady trees enjoying the most divine Tuscany landscape. This hotel and everything that comes with it are truly magical. We have recommended this hotel to several friends, who have experienced an equally great service there. Ps: check out the tower room for something completely different...

From the moment we stepped in through the castle doors, I knew this was going to be an unforgettable experience. It was the best stay throughout our whole adventure across Europe.

We stayed 2 nights in early December in their classic room which was very clean and comfortable. It was in the main building where the reception and dining rooms were, so definitely very convenient. I love that the room had kept most of its rustic charm and yet it comes with every modern amenity that one would need today. On arrival, we had iced grapes and hot chocolate, much like a fondue as a welcome gift…perfect for the cold weather.

The views from the castle were simply breathtaking. The colours of the valleys meeting the mountains with the mountain peaks touching the sky…just heavenly. Take time to explore the grounds in and around the castle…it is well worth the slight trek.

The owners and staff were so warm and helpful throughout our stay. They were ready to give us tips on towns to visit, directions to/from the hotel.

Last but not least, i must mention that the food was amazing…definitely one of our best meals throughout our trip. We had dinner in the castle on both nights and had tried both the degustation and ala carte menus and they were both just as good. It's what you would likely get or even better than any world class restaurants. Service was impeccable and the ambience was perfect with the fire place and old world charm.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone travelling up to Perugia and would love to return here again in a different season.

Just finished a wonderful three nights at this property. Everything was perfect. We were delighted to enjoy their dinners each night of our stay, and as many reviewers have pointed out for themselves, they were among our best meals in Italy. The public spaces were very historical. Our room - Deluxe "del Cavaliere" - was modern in appearance but well-appointed. Cannot understand the reviewer who said "if your expectation is luxury of any kid, this is not it." We are fortunate enough to travel to luxury destinations now and again, and we thought this was true 4.5 star accommodations. Dinners were home-cooked regional fare, breakfast was ample European sort with cured meats and cheese in addition to baked goods. Service outstanding at breakfast, dinner and at front desk. It is a boutique hotel, so slightly quirky, but we found nothing to complain about. We enjoy non "cookie-cutter" destinations like this.

The setting and scenery was stunning (especially this time of year with the fall colors). Enjoyed looking at the views each morning "over to the next castle" (yes, there is at least one in visual distance from this one).

Umbria is a wonderful region and Castello di Petroia is a great base (though perhaps a little too far for cities in Southern Umbria, like Orvieto). We easily visited Gubbio (of course), Assisi and Perugia. Hope to return.

Room Tip: They seem to give great descriptions of the rooms on their website and in the course of the reservat...

We have such a good memory of you: all the words you wrote about us are so special Thank you for your appreciation!

The Castle is such a beautiful historic building, and cannot be compare to any luxury city hotel for sure (luckily); our antique living hall, the fireplaces and all our room have their own soul, and this is why our guests usually find this Castle so special.
The fact that you have enjoyed the room you stayed in, our service and our staff is the best satisfaction for us.
My staff and I look forward to have you back soon.
