“A quiet place near Perugia town”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We booked this lovely hotel for 2 nights. Flight delayed for more than a day. Response to our email notification was really fast and the hotel was so kind to extend our booking for the next two days keeping the same rate. Gave us ease of mind and save the cost of forfeiting the first night. The staff are terrific, very kind and helpful. We arrived at around 3pm. They still offered us late lunch at the terrace. The food was simple but excellently prepared, a real joy after a long drive from the airport. Although arriving late, we still managed to drive to Perugia and spent a lovely evening there. It is about some 15 minutes drive and walking round town is relaxing. Plenty of lovely restaurants there for dinner.

The hotel is located mid way up the hill, can see Perugia from afar. Setting is very quiet, full of greens around. All rooms are different. Our room is a bit small but enough. Has a big window opened to the courtyard. Room is clean and bed comfortable. Breakfast is good with bread freshly made. With a cup of hot coffee or tea, a lovely start for the day indeed. We had dinner at the hotel for the second evening at the traditional restaurant. Very good food and portion very large, too full to finish all the courses for the set dinner, what a regret. Due to our delay, our reservation at their michelin star restaurant II Postale had to be cancelled and too bad it was fully booked during our stay. Do make a prior reservation if you wish to try.

This is a very nice place to stay to explore Umbria with a car. Definitely will return.

Dear JWAC,
thanks a lot for your long review about us! All the staff thank you for the appreciation of our hospitality: simple things but truly made. This is what we aim to, every day.
It's a pity that you missed your table at Il Postale, but it could be another experience during your second travel to Umbria and Castello di Monterone ;-)
Concerning your little remark, the elevator serves all the levels of the castle, including 2nd floor. Only a few of our rooms cannot be reached through elevator.

Amazing grounds and panoramic view of Perugia, the hills, and countryside. Though near the center of the city, the room was quiet and peaceful, surrounded by olive groves and gardens. We followed the advice of another reviewer and asked for a view of the countryside and were so glad we did. The room was a bit small, but comfortable, with a modern bathroom with a large shower and lots of amenities. We enjoyed the large buffet breakfast. The front desk staff was very helpful. The experience of being in a castle was a kick. The castle has an interesting history and has been beautifully restored.

Room Tip: Ask for view of the countryside.

This hotel was excellent! The views from our room and the gardens were stunning. The hotel is packed with features and the staff and amenities were great. The gardens of the hotel were excellent but it was the views which really were remarkable. The staff were friendly and very helpful each and every time we spoke to them or asked for advice.
The hotel is not within walking distance of Perugia city centre, but with a car and plenty of taxis this is not a problem (the hotel has plenty of parking).
Our room was very well appointed with great details / decor and amenities. Sleep quality was excellent.
We had breakfast each morning and it was a lovely selection. We had dinner in Il Postale which had only four tables in the garden - the food was delightful and service was very attentive. I would recommend this if you have the opportunity.

My wife and I stayed at the castle a few ago the same day we arrived in Italy. We were a litle tired from the flight but this place was perfect. Nice pool, beautiful grounds and two restaurants, one of which is a Michelin rated restaurant. We ate at the Grandola, the lesser of the two and were very satisfied with the food, service and price. Breakfast there was great the next morning.
We had a real nice room. Plenty big enough with wood beams and comfortable bed. Decent view of valley but I would have paid more for a better view. I think that many rooms offered a better view of Perusia, but really, how long do you stare out the window from your bedroom.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for room with GOOD view of city if available

Breathtaking, luxurious 5 star accommodations. Worth the trip to Perugia just to stay here. When you book, be wary that the rates for single versus double occupancy are quite different (I accidentally hit "single" instead of double on booking.com, when I arrived, found the room would be 60 € more a night for double). Still worth it! Gorgeous rooftop patio where we had a bottle of wine at sunset both nights. Breakfast was the average spread. Dinner at il Gradale (on site) was not our favourite (would highly recommend La Taverna in town.) Quick drive to town (bizarre parking garage, yay for the GPS!) Pool area fabulous (including steam room and sauna). How can you say no to staying in a castle?!

Dear Kristina WB,
thanks for your words about the Castle and thanks for sharing your experience on Tripadvisor.
You did the right thing: you chose your favorite place at Castello di Monterone! Sunset is the best among the spectacular gifts we receive every day from the surrounding nature and we are very lucky for giving our guests the possibility to admire it from the terraces.
We await you to say "yes" again and stay with us for a second time.

One of my wishes while visiting Italy was to stay in a castle. When we booked we were thinking this was in much more of a remote location but is actually located very near downtown Perugia. It's not walking distance to the city center but it is a fairly short drive.

The view from the grounds is fantastic. We did not book a room with a view so we made do with two small windows. If I were to go back I would make sure I booked a better room.

We stayed for two nights and ate at the cheaper of the restaurants both nights. The food was great and we were able to share the multiple course meal for a small fee. Breakfast was served in the same restaurant and was among the best breakfasts we had while in Italy. The restaurant is on a terrace overlooking the beautiful valley below.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view. We did not and the room felt a little closed in for our tastes.

Dear Martin J,
thanks for taking your time to write about us. "Excellent" is a great word, we are very pleased by your appreciation. Castello di Monterone is a real castle, not all the rooms have a wide view (Classic rooms usually have small windows), but we believe it worths the experience. We hope you'll keep a nice memory of the time spent here and we invite you to book again for a new experience.
