Description:This magnificent castle was built in the middle ages, in defence of the town of Gubbio against Perugia. The estate lies within a broad bend of the river Chiascio near the medieval city of Gubbio in Umbria. This region is justifiably described as the green heart of Italy. The estate spreads over 1400 acres (600 hectares) of meadows and woods, offering a variety of paths for hikes, horse riding and - most exciting - the search of white and black truffles with specifically trained dogs (we can organise this for you). Signposted paths completed by instructions given by the owner will open up this nature reserve to you, where you will be able to see deer, roe, porcupines, wild boar and pheasants. However, Umbrias cultural and gastronomic abundance is not far. Landmarks such as Gubbio, Gualdo Tadino, Nocera Umbra, Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Spoleto and Todi can be visited in half or full day trips. The local village can be reached in 8 minutes by car. nAmidst a beautiful untouched countryside stands the castle. First mentioned in the early middle ages (1200 AC) playing a strategic role in the defence of Gubbio against Perugia, in the 15th century it became one of the favourite hunting lodges of Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino and Gubbio. His famous profile portrait by Piero della Francesca hangs in the Uffizi Museum in Florence. A few centuries later, in 1830 to be precise, Princess Giulia Bonaparte, niece of Napoleon, became the new mistress of the castle. The charming actual owners are her direct descendants. nThe castle has retained its defensive caracter from the outside, but four years of intensive renovation have turned the interior into an extremely welcoming and comfortable house for 14 to 30 guests. The castle is surrounded by a park whith century old trees, large lawns and beautiful pool which looks out over the hilly estate. The estate is signposted with beautiful walks and in the appropriate season you can even go truffle hunting with local experts. nThe accomodations are split into two buildings - the main castle, which sleeps 14, and the guest house, which stands to the side of the castle and connects to the castle through a corridor, which sleeps another 16. The most exciting rooms are of course up in the watchtower! The ground-floor kitchen is modern and functional, a professional stainless steel kitchen. It opens up onto the courtyard and the back of the castle, both equipped for outdoor meals. nThe rent includes daily maid service from Monday to Saturday as well as the preparation of breakfast and dinner.

Over the years the other buildings that make up the complex were added: the country house, the drying shed for tobacco and other farm buildings. The country house and the tobacco building have been transformed into guest housing, with the classic farmhouse external staircase giving access to the two upper floors where there are 10 rooms, each with a private bathroom. The animal stalls and storage from the original ground floor barn are now a large common living room with an country fireplace that consists of 3 century old stonework, a small anteroom and a dining room.
