The best place to stay in Castelluccio! Been here twice in October. It's clean and has a good price. Perfect place for paragliding. Easy to check the weather around Castelluccio when you get up in the morning. Booking via mail is very easy and Peppe always finds a solution, even if you call him two hours before arrival.

We booked several months ahead since we were planning a hiking trip in the Sibillini. We were not disappointed, far from it! Although several B&Bs and small restaurants seem to have cropped up in Castelluccio, Taverna in my mind is the place to stay, and the place to eat too, thanks to a half-board option that you MUST enjoy.

We stayed 2 nights in a Cascina delle fate room which was clean and cosy - perfect for escaping the cool spring weather. Pepe (the owner) was welcoming and friendly and spoiled us in the restaurant. The lentil soup is incredibly delicious, along with the rest of the food. Castellucio was one of our favourite places we visited, although there... More

Castelluccio is not exactly a huge tourist magnet, and I hope it stays that way. Some of the locals seem to think differently, and there has been an explosion of new albergos and b&b's since we last visited a few years ago. One can understand the impulse to find new sources of income, since this is clearly a poor region... More

We pre-booked a few days ahead and took the Taverna's half-board option. I had stayed before and had been dreaming of their lamb chops for dinner ever since. I ordered this again o the first night and wasn't disappointed. The food is exceptional value for money and quality, with plenty of local dishes and using local produce. Rooms are small,... More

Pepe the owner and his kitchen team proudly served very good food. The location and place is not the best or charming ,but the food and service you get impressive. This is the place you plan for a very long lunch with close friends and family.

Mr Karl, The restaurant is placed in front of the "Lost Pian" ( "Pian Perduto"), which is important for a historic reason (it is in fact called the Lost Plane as in 1522 there was a war between the city of Norcia and the city of Visso. Norcia lost the war and with it the Pian) and for its panorama... More

We stayed in the annexe (Cascina della Fate) 200m up the hill from the main Taverna/restaurant. The rooms had everything we wanted and more. Very comfortable bed, adequate heating, small but well-appointed bathroom and the best shower we had in the whole month in Italy. We opted for half-board and the meals were fantastic. There were lots of choices and... More

The Taverna di Castelluccio isn't a fancy hotel but it provides extraordinarily good value for money. At the price, we weren't expecting anywhere like as good. The rooms we had (in the Taverna itself, not the annex) were a good size, well-fitted out and with great views. In addition, the food was really excellent - high quality and tasty with... More

We had booked to stay at Taverna di Castelluccio as a base for a Sibillini Mountains walking holiday with friends. Right from the initial booking emails the welcoming character of the Owner, Giuseppe Caponecchi, had come over. We stayed in the Taverna rooms; our bedroom was bright, well furnished and had a great view. All the family and staff were... More

We ate at this restaurant when we traveling in Castelluccio - everyone was so friendly. The food was great - make sure you get the lentil soup and save room for the lentil ricotta pie!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
CASTELLUCCIO DI NORCIACastelluccio di Norcia ( 1452m ) is also known as the Italian Mongolia due to its mountains. Situated in Umbria in the centre of Italy, it is one of the most precious jewels of the National Park of the Monti Sibillini. Famous for the great conditions to fly, it's also a great choise for those who love to walk, to ride in bicicle or in moto. Who loves horses will find on the Big Plane a ranch. Photographers, from the end of May until ( more or less ) the end of June/beggining of July, invade Castelluccio to see the natural and the infestant flowering ( +1000 species ). Another curiosity of this paradise is the Mergani, a depression in the end of the Big Plane. This depression had been in the past the scenary of scientific studies to know where the water depositated in its interior finishes. The answer is still unknown.One of the most popular destination is Monte Vettore ( 2476m ), the third highest mountain of the Appennini. The top is occupied by the Lake of Pilato ( called this way as the legend teaches that the body of Pilato may be found in the bottom of the lake ), permanent and the only house of Chirocefalo, a tiny red fish that exists only here.Our Hotel is divided in two structures. The Oldest is Taverna Castelluccio ( 1986 ), placed in front of the Lost Plane ( Marche/Umbria ). This structure is composed of 7 rooms ( 4 with panoramic view ), all ... more   less
