with 13 hectares of park in private grounds & pool. Local village 1km away famous for the productions of truffles

Dating back to the Middle Ages, when it was the Municipality of Gubbio's main defense hub against the city of Perugia, the Castle is set in around 500 hectares of uncontaminated countryside dotted with woods, lawns and waterways.

In 1830 the Castle became the property of the current owners, the family of Princess Giulia Bonaparte, the daughter of two first cousins, Zenaide and Carlo Luciano Bonaparte, Prince of Canino, both descended from Napoleon.

The property is situated in the center of a Park (approx. 3 hectares) which features an outdoor swimming pool (7m x 14m) with small changing room and shower, a boules ground, rose garden, centuries-old trees and Mediterranean shrubs, as well as lots of pathways along which guests can stroll and enjoy the silence of their surroundings.

The Castle has been completely renovated without altering any of its period architectural features. It has antique furniture and is fitted with all mod cons: Wi-Fi internet, satellite TV, Stereo, CD and DVD player. All the rooms have heating. There are fans in the bedrooms and a professional kitchen.

The whole Umbria region is famous for the production of truffles which, at certain times of the year, can be tasted in the local "trattorias"

Reviews

- The castle is in excellent condition and very well presented. Highest score. - The service of the local couple was excellent. Both were super nice and very accommodating. - The area is great, but hiking is difficult because there are no real trails and many streets are private. All in all highly recommended.
