Gubbio Castle

Historic 15 bedroom castle in Umbria, near Gubbio .All bedrooms with ensuite baths.

Umbria Villa 30

This magnificent castle dates back to the early Middle Ages (1200 AD), during which it was the focus of the defence of the town of Gubbio against Perugia. 

Host the event of a lifetime at the castle. The fifteen-bedroom(13 doubles, 2 twins) villa near Perugia blends walls that have stood for centuries with recently renovated interiors. The 1,200-acre estate, large garden and separate guest quarters give parties of up to 30 guests plenty of space, and much of the property is wheelchair-accessible.

During your stay, spend time exploring the surrounding village and forests, strolling the rose garden, swimming in the pool or playing billiards and ping-pong. Lounge in one of the jetted tubs or on a chaise by the pool, and enjoy al-fresco meals at the long table in the courtyard. Thanks to the 2009 restoration, even the medieval parts of the villa now have under-floor heating, a computer and Wi-Fi access.

From the stone walls and tile floors to the beamed ceilings and elaborate fireplace mantels, you’ll be surrounded by history. The common areas have been furnished with antiques like carved armoires, roll-arm loveseats and spindle-leg tables for a comfortably elegant feel. Dine at a long table in the splendor of the great hall, or enjoy a casual meal over farmhouse-style tables and ladder-back chairs. The stainless steel kitchen is fully equipped for either a simple coffee and snack or a professionally catered meal.

Each of the castle’s fifteen bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. There are seven bedrooms in the main castle, and seven in the guest quarters, which can be reached by crossing the courtyard or via secret passageway. In the castle, you’ll find five bedrooms with double beds, one of which has a jetted tub and sitting area, and two bedrooms with two twin beds each. In the guest quarters, there are six bedrooms with double beds, two of which are wheelchair-accessible, and one bedroom with two double beds and a jetted tub.

The owners of the estate are descendants of the family of Napoleon Bonaparte and they have elegantly furnished the living areas and bedrooms in the empire style with the family’s antique furniture.In the watch tower, bedrooms have been constructed, two of them so large that they cover the entire perimeter of the tower.

The kitchen, a highly functional, professional stainless steel kitchen, is intended for use by clients and staff and is more than adequate for catering for wedding receptions or parties. It has direct access to the inner courtyard of the castle as well as the other outdoor areas.

Together with the guest quarters, the castle can accommodate up to 30 guests and the price includes both daily maid service (except on Sundays) as well as daily breakfast preparation (except on Sundays, cost of the food excluded). On request, a chef can be hired to provide dinner which may be enjoyed in the magnificent setting of the courtyard within the wonderful castle walls or otherwise outside the castle in the terrace area in front of the park, close to the kitchen.

It is even possible to celebrate Mass in the chapel of the property.

Fabulous house, beautiful surroundings, excellent service  10/10  Catherine B

Our first view of the villa, as we came down the drive, took our breath away. Arriving, and being shown around, only increased the excitement. The castello is fabulous! We loved the grand staircase and the small and large living rooms, including the terrace at the end with the magnificent views. The banqueting hall was fabulous as was the pool, and we looked the games room. all in all this is an amazing place, which ticked every box for us. the thing i have to mention however, which put this holiday in the 'outstanding' box were the amazing on site staff, Christian and his wife Petra. they looked after us wonderfully and nothing was too much trouble. Their help and kindness was commented on by all. 

Magical!!!  10/10  Anita H  

We all had the most amazing week, and a magical wedding during our stay! From D'Anita , Laura and to the staff at the castle who were so helpful and made our week one which we will cherish forever! We didn't want the week to end, it exceeded our expectations!! Our week there will be spoken about for many years to come by us all! Holiday of a lifetime! Thanks to you all!

Fairytale Castle, Dream Wedding in the Italian Countryside  10/10  Stacy D

Staying here was definitely a wonderful experience. During the week of our stay, we hosted our wedding celebration. The property was fit for a Dream wedding. The property, bedrooms and bathrooms were all very clean and were kept in excellent condition. There was so much space for our wedding celebration and had 30 of our closest family and friends stay with us. With a house full of people, there was never a lack of hot water. The pictures of the property were all very accurate with no surprises. The only unexpected thing was the distance of the castle from all the major towns like Assisi, Gubbio, Orvieto, Siena and Perugia. The shortest drive was 30 minutes to an 1 hour away. Anyone looking at this property should be prepared for the travel time. The caretakers were very pleasant to have around and were always quick to make everyone comfortable. It was a wonderful vacation that our family and friends will continue to talk about for years to come.

Absolutely brilliant week in lovely surroundings.  10/10  Helen M 

The castle was fabulous and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I was there to celebrate my 50th birthday with a group of 22 friends, not all of whom knew each other. Because the accommodation is so well set out, none of us felt like we were on top of each other. A week wasn't long enough!

Meszaros Family  Excellent

Our family had the privilege of spending a week in July, 2012 and we all agreed the experience was fantastic. The castle was beautifully restored with a perfect blend of family antiques and modern conveniences. We especially enjoyed exploring the hiking trails around the estate and relaxing in the perfectly groomed lawns and pool areas. Christian and his wife Petra, caretakers of the estate, were wonderful, they supplied everything we needed or wanted with a smile. We enjoyed their company so much, they made us feel like family. Stephano and his wife prepared amazing dinners for us, everything was delicious.
