“Fantastic stay at a contemporary castle!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Sometimes you think you have seen and experienced everything, until you come across something truly unique. The Castello di Granarola, is a perfect blend of history and style. This awesome castle has been brought back to his former splendor through a detailed restoration and has been wonderfully decorated and furnished with contemporary sophistication. A testament to the love, passion and professionalism of Barbara, an architect in life, and Marco, an inspired designer, owners of this gem. Upon our arrival we were stunned by the detailed restoration of the building. The castle is surrounded by a park, on the top of a hill with views of Le Marche rolling hills, the famous Gradara castle and the sea. Barbara and Marco kindly allowed us to visit several apartments and we were dazzled by the care for the detail and the unique decor. Going from apartment to apartment is a true journey of discovery. Don't miss it if you ever come here!
There are many things to do and to see in the area. Sand beaches and rock cliffs can be reached cycling. The historic Montefeltro and its capital Urbino are within easy reach. There are plenty of restaurants in the area to choose from, including Il Melograno which is just steps away from the Castello. Shopping is great fun, especially in the Brandina bag and accessory store, a beach fashion line designed by Marco himself! Barbara and Marco are wonderful hosts, all questions are met with smiles and with sensible answers.
The Castello di Granarola stole our heart and we can wait to be back again. Bravi!

Castello di granarola is a gem in the Marche area of Italie. After a lengthy restauration of several years the Castello has its grandeur back and has arisen from its ashes so to speak. The interiour has a modern feel with a design full of details and a lot of handcrafted design items. The apartments have everything you could wish for If you want to stay there with your family. We were there for two weeks with our two kids (age 1,5 and 7) . The owners Barbara and Marco together with their staff give you a warm welcome and you feel immediatly at home. It seems that no request or question is to much for them and they give you real good advice about the erea and things to do. They also have a list of good restaurants so make sure you use it. My personal favourits where Osteria Il Malograno (50 mtr from the Castello and they offer take away!) and Circolino del Molo (you have to make a small boat trip of 10 min.)
All in all it is a wonderfull location to enjoy with your family in a cosy setting. Do book a pottery class it is real fun. Last but not least don't forget to visit the Brandina store in Catalonica for example! To summarize Castello di Granarola is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the Italian lifestyle!

Room Tip: We stayed with our kids (2) in the Artist tower and the cottage at the poolsite and they were both e...
