We spent two nights at this magnificent spot that is just outside of Assisi. We had a spacious room and enjoyed two generous breakfasts and two tasty dinners. The grounds of this hotel are spectacular. They have a beautiful swimming pool that we did not try as it was too cold in April but we did hike around the property... More

If you are looking for special stay near Assisi but far away from the crowded athmoshere I would recommend you Castello die Petrata. Its 10 minutes by car from Assisi centre. The way to the hotel is from one side a little rough and adventurous but the place let you all these forget. Its an old farm house quite 500... More

Beautiful grounds, beautiful hotel, great service, great room (renovated, including bathroom), excellent food (dinner and breakfast buffet), many things to do or just sit and lap up the joy of the Italian countryside. A little difficult to find, for us, but we called and then we lucked out by seeing the proper signs. A winner.

We stayed for 3 nights in September 2014. Our room was one of the junior suites and was spacious and comfortable. The manager/owner(?) and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. There is a nice buffet for breakfast and we had two dinners at the hotel which were good, although the first night the food was cooked OK but... More

Travelling around Italy On my motorbike I booked a last minute in Castello di Petrata. I can only say that the place offers a astounding view over the surroundings, Assisi is barely visible but that makes it even more fascinating. The hotel itself is well maintained, friendly staff and super comfortable rooms. The bathroom in my room (110) is not... More

As we meandered up the mountain side in our tour bus with 15 people, late in the evening, we were all wondering where we were going. Upon arrival we were awestruck by the beauty of this "castle". The staff greeted us smiling and welcoming us to their "Gem in the sky". After exploring the surroundings and our rooms, we all... More

We first stayed at Castello di Petrata in Sept 2012 and fell in love with the place. So much so that we chose it to be the venue for our wedding in Sept 2013! The combination of unpretentious Umbrian charm, informality, quality and simplicity lift the experience well beyond a typical tourist hotel in Tuscany for example. Its location and... More

St. Francis preached to birds, found holiness in solitude and lived a life of simplicity. His values attracted a large following from across Europe and ultimately the world. Today, Assisi is a bustling city, filled with pilgrims and tourists and hardly a place to contemplate what it means to be "an instrument of God's peace." Benefiting from a stunning location,...

We arrived rather late on Friday 4th October. The road leading up from Assisi to the Castello is an unpaved countryside one, but you can easily drive there with an ordinary car. You do not need four wheel drive or anything like that. When you arrive at the Castello, even late in the evening, you can immediately see that this... More

Agree with all previous travelers - location is heavenly. Views of Assisi and surrounding villages, hills, orchards are breathtaking. Grounds with variety of flowering bushes and fruit trees are well maintained. Old castle rooms are furnished with period pieces and have renovated bathrooms. Unfortunately, it ends right here. There seems to be complete absence of management in the hotel. The... More
