“The best 'welcoming' and 'good-bying' I've ever met”
Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

I visted Petroia with my dad and mom for one night.
Our schedule was very tight so we arrived the castel around midnight.
But the castel was twinkling brightly as if it is an early evening, and some people ran out to say hello to us as soon as we arrived at the door.
We got an impression that people of the castel was not sleeping to wait for us.
When we got in our room, we surprised.
The room was really warm, already.
They've already operated a heater for us not to feel cold from the first time.
They even gave us the larger room than we reservated.
The next day, on the way to go to Spello, they gave us another generous helping.
We were in a difficulty to find a good trasportation to our hotel in Spello.
The owner of the castel, the man I cannot forget for ever, took us there by himself.
The way to get there was not easy, but he asked people how to get there several times, and finally took us to our destination.
I remember his silent voice, warm eyes.
I promised him that I will get back there in a few years.
And I will.
I felt that Petrioa is not a place for making money but a place for making people happier and giving people as much as they can.
I wanna meet Dr.Carlos and the people there soon again.
And I hope they also could remember me, Asha.

I highly recommend Castello di Petroia. It is a real castle and the rooms are very comfortable. The staff is extremely helpful and nice, both at reception and at the restaurant. The food at the restaurant is extremely good, try their home salad with greens and fruits, it is excellent. Unfortunately it was cold and rainy when we stayed there so we did not enjoy the swimming pool or the garden. But it was nice to be in a heated place after having walked a whole day under the rain and the castle was heated which was very much appreciated as the other hotels we stayed at during the same period where not heated and were therefore rather uncomfotable, especially the bathrooms.

The only small negative point at the Castello is that you can sometimes hear the noise from the other rooms, especially if like us you have an agitated child in the next room.

But I would love to stay there again, especially with warm and sunny weather.

Didn't stay at the hotel, just ate at the restaurant.
Excellent food with a good selection for vegetarians.
Furthermore the staff were very helpful with two gluten-intolerant guests.
Wonderful evening in a classic location.

We came to Italy to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday and he wanted to stay in an authentic medieval castle. For 2 nights we stayed in the tower that was built before the 14th century. Although you will need to climb a lot of steep stairs the effort is well worth it! We also stayed in a "less challenging" part of the hotel in a "superior" room #33, which was huge and comfortable. Breakfast was generous including croissant, meats, cheese, eggs, juice, and many cakes etc. The cappuccini were great. We also ate dinner there each night. The food is wonderful and Paolo, the maitre'd, is a true professional. The 4 course chef tasting menu is a wonderful value. All the staff were very helpful and pleasant. We appreciated meeting Dr. Sagrini, the owner.

We had such a great stay at Castello di Petroia! The views are breathtaking, the staff is so helpful and friendly, and the food at their restaurant is outstanding!! Lucia at the front desk is so accommodating and speaks very good English. We also loved our waiter at the restaurant, Paolo. He was very attentive, kind and provided great suggestions for the menu and drinks.
This was such a wonderful place to stay for 3 nights and it was a short driving distance to all of the places we were planning on visiting during our time in Umbria.
