“WOW YOU MUST GO!!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

My boyfriend and I had such an amazing time!! We have travelled lots and been to many good standard hotels, but this hotel is up there with the best!! We even thought about getting married there. The staff couldnt do enough to help us especially Lucia, she was brilliant!! She works in the restaurant at night and recommended great wines and was very friendly. We sat by the pool and went for a run around the hotel. The food in the restaurant was of a very very high standard!! I joined trip advisor today to let people know about this hotel as I was so impressed.

After a wedding in Florence we travelled to Assisi and then found our way to the Castello. It was sublime. Totally off the beaten track in the middle of it's 600 acres was the castle. My parents and I had a suite. The beds were comfy and a good nights sleep was had by one and all. The bath room was large with a bath and separate shower.
Dinner was excellent the dinning hall was out of this world and you felt like a king and queen I. Your own little castle. The staff and owner were so helpful, kind and knowledgeable.
It was a pure pleasure of a stay and one that will not be forgotten. We all wished we could have stayed longer, but we are on a mini road trip around Tuscany & Umbria.
We all would come back again and would recommend it to anyone - it's fabulous! Thank you so much.

Room Tip: Any they are all in keeping and the views are out of this world

This is one of the most unique and beautiful places I've ever stayed - the pictures don't do it justice and can't account for the heady scent from the pine trees! Firstly the staff - Lucia and Leonardo are very welcoming and it's clear they love their work and take pride in the property. Nothing is too much trouble, even sorting out a cold meat & cheese lunch for us on request in the courtyard. We stayed in room 20 which is one of the new rooms. Nice and big with a huge bed (not two joined single beds) and a massive bathroom but a little oddly laid out - it could have done with some comfy chairs or a sofa. The loo is placed right by a low window which had no blind - all the better to admire the view but I did feel a little over exposed!
The property is a little too far away from the nearest town to pop out for food but the dinners we had at Petroia were some of the best we had in our two weeks in Italy, plus the wine list is very reasonable. The icing on the cake is the location though - total peace & quiet & amazing scenery.

Room Tip: Room 20 has amazing view and huge bed!

We were looking for a special place to stay while touring the fabulous region of Umbria. Advice led us to Petroia. Everything was perfect. The rooms were spacious and well equipped. The decor was in keeping with the Middle Ages surroundings. We loved the breakfast, and dinner was served outside at this time of year by candlelight which was a treat. The chef is very creative, we enjoyed trying all the menu selections each night. We were especially touched by the attentiveness of the owner to every guest. It really made us feel at home. In August, Umbria is very hot in the middle of the day, so we took advantage of the delightful pool and kept cool until later in the afternoon to start our sightseeing. Most major attractings of the region are within a short drive. We'll be back!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice but they do have deluxe rooms we didn't try. Newly renovated rooms will offer...

Everything at the Castello di Petroia was perfect: the setting, our hotel room, the breakfast room (with a view of the Umbrian hills), the dining room (with the candles), the swimming pool, the smell of the trees surrounding the castello, the castello in itself.... The staff was always helpful, welcoming and very nice; and both dinner and breakfast were extremely good. The location is perfect to discover Assisi, Gubbio, Todi, Perugia, etc. All wonderfully preserved cities, full of magnificent buildings and churches. It was recommended by a friend - and in turn -we have already started recommending it to all our friends.

Perfect location for a special anniversary if you love Italy. The people running the hotel couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Restaurant serves great food and wine at a very reasonable cost. Breakfast gives a good selection to suit most tastes.
Access road a bit rough and hotel is isolated so be prepared to spend the evenings there rather than go out. We visited Gubbio, Assisi and Montone (wonderful places) which are not far away and easily accessible by car. Returned to hotel each day at about 4.30, spent an hour or so at the pool then got ready for an evening at 'our' castle.
We were there for 4 nights and are looking forward to a return visit in the future.
Superb.

Just back from 4 wonderful days at this hotel. Everything about this place is magical but the setting probably has to be the trump card. Lying by the pool amongst the olive trees gazing out over the Umbrian hills you feel like you are dreaming.

We stayed in the duchess suite which I would highly recommend. Large bed, lots of space and a shower that would probably fit 6 people. It was 40 degrees when we were there but even with the windows open at night it was beautifully quiet.

Breakfast was incredible. My husband and I love our food so enjoyed tucking into all the fresh fruit and home made cakes. The view from the breakfast room reminded me of EM Forster's ROOM with a view. Truly stunning. Get to breakfast early to make sure you get one of the 2 tables with the view.

We chose to spend our honeymoon here and we have no regrets. Only reason I gave it 4 stars is that the dinner service was a little slow and we felt the food was a bit too expensive. There was only one waiter so when the restaurant was busy he had too much to do. However he was a delightful man, as are all the staff. We met Lucia Lucia and Leonardo and they have to be the nicest reception staff I have ever met on my world travels.

You must go and stay here. You will not regret it.

While there defo drive to Gubbio and take the birdcage style cable car up the mountain. It's an experience you will never forget.

Room Tip: Duchess suite a winner.
