Having travelled most of the world over the last 50 years and stayed in every type of accommodation from Youth Hostels to International 5 Star Palaces, Borgo di Carpiano embraces the best of everything we have yet experienced with fine views, comfortable clean rooms, excellent cuisine and beautiful buildings.
However, what all the others cannot possibly emulate is the extraordinary welcome and devoted service offered by our hosts Ricardo and Marilisa Parisi who lift the experience of staying at the Borgo from extremely pleasant to something that we will remember and cherish for the rest of our lives.
Their devotion shows everywhere, from the fine dining with wonderful local wines, the beautiful terraces and pool, the décor not to mention their assistants, Harmony, Lucky, Louis and Armstrong who are a delight as are the rest of their staff.
The relaxed and pleasing atmosphere imbued us all with such a feeling of well being that the visit became a wonderful house party for all the guests with no one wanting it to end and many new friendships made.
Sadly, the ratings herein only go up to excellent - if there was a sixth designated as the best ever, they would get that from us!
Thank you both for a wonderful stay - we are already booked to return next year and who knows, we may not be able to resist a flying visit this autumn!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The ancient castle of Carpiano is among the hidden treasures of beautiful Umbria. This small hamlet is located at only 12 Km from the medieval town of Gubbio and 22 km from Perugia. In this pleasant place simplicity, elegance and warmth of genuine hospitality are ideally combined. The Borgo is surrounded by secular olive trees and lush woods in a pristine valley crossed by the Ventia stream. The three stone buildings that comprise it are perched on a spur of rock that ends with an infinity pool of salt water overlooking the valley. In the main building, the old church has been restored keeping the original frescoes and has been now converted into library and conversation room hosting classical music concerts and events. During the winter months meals are served in the large dining room in front of the warmth of the old fireplace while in the summer are served in the small square with breathtaking view over the valley.Home made bread, cakes and biscuits, vegetables from the vegetable garden and a search of quality ingredients, all strictly "seasoned with our own olive oil" ....The Borgo has only eight rooms all renovated respecting the original architecture and materials of the time. Get lost in the woods, plan to do very little, get accustomed to the silence are recommended activities!Borgo di Carpiano is also an ideal setting for an exclusive place to celebrate with your friends a special occasion.
