We spent a wonderful spring week with our three kids staying at Castello Monte Giove.
The marchese Lorenzo Misciattelli and his wife Rikke gave us a royal treatment and we all enjoyed their hospitality. The olive mill is restored in the nicest way and to stay there makes you feel like a count yourself - it fulfilled all our needs. The kids loved to experience a true medieval castle.
Our days were spent both relaxing and enjoying the wonderful Umbrian countryside, taking some nasty bike rides ;-), and going on day trips (by car) to the beautiful cities of Orvieto, Assisi and Perugia and cooking and eating the most wonderful local food. Don't forget to enjoy the olive oil and wine that is produced at the castle. We are already planning to come back for the wine harvest in 2011.
