The only problem is getting there -- not easy, even with a GPS, because there are 3 places in Umbria with the same name! But once you get there, its lovely and the very professional staff work hard at making you at home and comfortable. The restaurant is excellent in a beautiful room.

We travelled with our boys 7 and 9. The castle is incredible in terms of its uniqueness. Staff were warm and welcoming, young Isabella was so sweet, having our table set for breakfast with hot choclate ready for the boys. All the staff were great though and Carlos for suggesting the frasissi caves, he thought our children would enjoy, we... More

We had a lovely time at the castle. Excellent service, food and hospitality! A fantastic view of the Umbria area. The castle has been preserved for over 1000 years and it's still in great shape. Worth visiting! We really enjoyed our visit. We highly recommend it. -Campos Family, São Paulo, Brazil

Staying in this castle was amazing, the cobbled central path /street linking all parts of the castle, the tower, then just outside among olive trees and fruit trees was a swimming pool. The owner was a charming gentle man , a true treasure himself. The food really good and all the staff charming. I was travelling with my daughter ,... More

My wife and I recently spent four days in this astonishing castle, with its compelling medieval atmosphere, lovely country views and amazing restaurant. The staff and owners of Castello di Petroia are welcoming and attentive, while giving guests space to enjoy the castle and grounds as their own private space. Our comfortable junior suite in the main castle looked out... More

This is one of the best hotel experiences I've had. The staff are genuine and warm, and very professional. Lucia managed our arrival and made sure everything went smoothly. We arrived past midnight and the owner stayed up to let us in. We stayed in the deluxe suite, on two floors: absolutely charming. The style is classic and fresh. The... More

Dear JessicaLo, your review it's just beautiful! Thank you for highlighting the value of the Castle in all of its aspects (rooms, breakfast, greens around the fortress). We are very proud to be the best hotel you have ever experienced. Definitely the Castle walking paths are a bit wild but, as you said, that’s exactly how we want them to... More

Castello di Petroia is great for those seeking something different and historical. The service was great- when we got lost at night in the rain heading to the hotel (at midnight), hotel staff offered to drive out and meet us and guide us back. The location is good for exploring Gubbio (15km away) and other quaint Umbrian towns. The views... More

My husband and I stayed here one night on our honeymoon as we passed through Umbria and had an amazing time. It was a Monday night in low season so we were the only guests in the castle but they were so nice to us and even opened the restaurant just for us. The food was spectacular...one of the best...

We have stayed in lots of castles before in Spain and Portugal, and this is the real deal. You need to be prepared for the authenticity--stone walls and rooms that can be a bit noisy if you have upstairs neighbors. You are also in the middle of nowhere, but if you like that, as we do, it is wonderful. You... More
