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,... More

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

We stayed at Castello di Petrata for two nights but wish we had more time. The staff is very accommodating and helpful, the establishment is very clean, the grounds are beautiful, and the view is breathtaking. We considered staying in Assisi but were so happy that we opted to stay 10 minutes out of downtown and enjoy the quiet and... More

Castello di Petrata is a charming small castle perched high on the hills of beautifl Assisi. The staff are warm and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The gardens are a delight to walk around, plenty of deck chairs by the pool and little nooks to hideaway and take in the breathtaking scenery. The rooms are large... More

Idyllic location in the hills above Assisi. We had a very warm welcome and gained the impression immediately that the management and staff could not do enough to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Good facilities at the hotel despite it being a converted medieval building. Exceptionally clean. Breakfast was impressive for continental standards and should even please USA visitors.... More

Castello Petrata is fantastic. We stayed there four nights and visited Assisi and trekked the surrounding countryside. Very friendly staff, who go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. Great food -creative and healthy. They even made us and a Dutch couple special dishes (my Malaysian wife was missing rice, so they made a rice dish!) on... More

I recently reserved a room for two nights in this very inviting looking hotel. The prices were execllent and the pictures looked divine. I was attracted by its proximity to hiking trails in the area. I decided to go with a tour group with included hotels instead. According to the English instructions I was required to give a 10 day... More

Depending on what is important to you this hotel is great or not so much. First the hotel is not in Assisi. It is about a 20 minute drive because of the small gravel road to get there and back. It made me very nervous going there - the road did not bother my husband at all. When we got... More

Good morning, Thanks for the review written and the beautiful words written on our Castle. I reply to your review just to clarify some things that do not respond to reality. The castle is 6 km from Assisi (10 min) and the way you have done is wrong, you use Tripadvisor... just read the other reviews to understand that there... More

My husband and I spent the last leg of our honeymoon at the Castello di Petrata and it was perfect! After the hustle and bustle of several cities, the quiet surroundings of the Castello made it a great wind-down. The Castello is about a 15 minute taxi ride from the center of Assisi but the staff called us a taxi... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Far from it all, let yourself be carried away by the silence, colours and scents of the soft Umbrian hills, where what counts is the sunset, the perfume of the earth and flowers. A true oasis of peace where Aldo and Giuseppina's family and their staff welcome guests with courtesy and kindness into the warmth of a private residence,for a holiday in harmony with art and nature. Petrata Castle, an ancient 14th century fortress and its annexed chapel, nestles in the midst of gentle hills on a quiet and sunny plain, 600 metres above sea level and only 6 km from Assisi. Its position of dominance in the surrounding countryside, allows it an wide panoramic view of Assisi and the Umbrian valley. ... more   less
