We stayed here for our 3rd anniversary and were blown away. Super friendly staff, rich and decadent Umbrian food, stunning scenery, and we got to stay in a tower from 1072!!! Really, really impressed by this place. My woman was lost for words at how romantic it was. Job done! A very special place indeed.

We stayed at Castello di Petroia 2 nights while visiting Umbria. This place is to be seen to be believed! It is a large medieval walled castle perched atop a hilltop and reached through a 1 mile unpaved road in the lush Umbrian countryside. Our GPS guided us close enough, and as we wondered if we were lost a sign... More

Thank you for have stayed at the Castle; we're pleased you've appreciated the property and my staff. To be noticed your remark on the unique history of this place, which makes each guests stay unique; wordless is the peace, silence and tranquillity of the Castle which guarantee a comfortable rest. A good attention is dedicated also to our cuisine, both... More

What can I say about this castle? I do not want to write this review, for more excellent comments mean more visitors and hence hinder my chance of getting a room there next time. I arrive with a large group of friends (16 persons at the end of my three-day stay). If they have accounts here at tripadvisor, there will... More

My wife and I stayed with three good friends at the castle for two nights in October in time to appreciate incredible Fall views of the region from atop the 1000 year old watch tower you see in the photographs. In fact, my wife booked our room in the tower itself, and our friends stayed in the well-appointed guest rooms... More

My wife and I visited Castello di Petroia at the recommendation of some friends and we're not disappointed. My sister and her husband were celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary and we wanted them to have a special time. The staff were genuinely helpful and always quite patient with our questions and unique requests. We had dinner two nights and each... More

The Castello di Petroia is, to say the least, a most charming medieval castle with breathtaking views as far as the eye can see. The castle itself has maintained its original beauty and authenticity and has been complimented by charming boutique rooms tastefully decorated with antique furniture. It boasts breathtaking views (360 degrees) over its glorious private estate which has... More

Stayed at Castello di Petroia for a night...pretty impressive. Set on a hilltop with drop-dead gorgeous views of neighboring valleys. Just walking the halls of this ancient place is pretty awe-inspiring. Had a lovely dinner in the candle-lit dining room. There were (we think) only two other guests staying at the time, so the whole stay was a bit spooky... More

We spent two nights at this wonderful ancient castle outside of Gubbio. In middle OCTOBER is quiet...very quiet. The staff makes you feel like you are the King and Queen. They could not have been more friendly or helpful. We took a standard room and it was perfectly satisfactory for us - clean, new bathroom and generally comfortable. We never... More

I arranged for a group of us to come to Castello di Petroia as part of our Italy tour. My husband and I stayed in the Tower (because - we're in a castle - I HAD to stay in the tower! It's not like we have those here in the states...), and our friends each had a room in a... More

We stayed for 3 nights and would thoroughly recommend this hotel. It was amazing staying in a castle and has remained authentic. We ate each night in the restaurant and the food was superb. We met the owner, the castle has been in his family for 150 years, and he was a totally charming host. Breakfast very good with homemade... More
