The origin of the Castle dates back to the 12th century when Antonio da Montefeltro occupied Gubbio and the residence became the seat of the noble family for centuries. Sumptuously restored between 1982 and 1990, it still retains the charm, mystery and architectural features of the past. The castle consists of three buildings: the Castellare Maggiore, the Castellare Minore and the Mastio or Tower. Inside, there are three elegantly furnished rooms with period furniture which, after having hosted princes and dukes, now welcome those guests who wish to experience the life of the Castle. We are on the top of a hill overlooking the Chiasco valley and from whichever side you look you can admire the same panorama that Perugino and Piero della Francesca saw and immortalised in masterpieces of art.
All the rooms are furnished with fine period furniture and embellished with high quality coordinated furnishings. Some have a mini-pool and mezzanine, others a four-poster bed and corner Jacuzzi, others a separate living room. The Tower, which has been elegantly renovated but still retains its original architecture, offers a special suite on three levels with a breathtaking view and an atmosphere of times gone by.
If you want to dine like real castellans, you can dine in the Accomandugi room, where the owners themselves often participate. “By candlelight, the pleasure of gourmet dining becomes magic thanks to the elegance of the setting and the quality of the equipment. Chef Walter Passeri will tempt you with meat and fish dishes according to ancient Umbrian recipes.
Surrounded by greenery, there is a splendid swimming pool, where you can take time for yourself while admiring the enchanting panorama. A riding school with beautiful Frisian horses is accessible just a few hundred metres from the Castle: in the more than 10 km of trails within the large farm you can enjoy wonderful horseback rides in the most unspoilt nature. For the enjoyment of guests, the Castle offers theme evenings or historical re-enactments in period costumes. For enthusiasts, golf and tennis are available nearby.
Around the Castle you can walk through 250 hectares of property: woods, meadows, vineyards, wheat fields, in a boundless nature rich in sounds, colours, scents, a place of refuge for lovers of nature and quiet.
