Castello di Petroia
Ranked #1 of 24 Hotels in Gubbio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 October 2017

We were two couples touring Umbria. We stayed at the Castello for two nights. It was originally built as part of the defenses of Gubbio 1000 yrs ago then came into the possession of various owners who lived there over the many years. The Duke of Urbino, made famous in a portrait by Piero della Francesca was supposedly born there illegitimately! The place is way atop a mountain ridge deep in the Umbrian countryside. It's gorgeous and isolated. The accommodations are top notch (we did not stay in the tower). The rooms were airy and although traditional outfitted with all modern conveniences. The staff were great-Leonardo, Lucia-very pleasant, thoughtful. We had dinner twice there and the meals were superb, the service top notch. The views from the rooms and the breakfast room are stunning. If you are planning a trip anywhere near the area a stay here is well worth it.

We booked a truffle hunt and truffle dinner experience with Castello di Petroia for our guests here at Casa Vialba. The truffle hunt was not so great since we are experiencing a drought here in Umbria but the dinner was to die for! I have lived here in Umbria for 19 years and have therefore had countless memorable dinners but I will remember this dinner more than any other. Everything was perfect: the setting, the service and the food. The gnocchi with truffle was out of this world, the pork filet was cooked to perfection.
I highly recommend this truffle experience.

We were referred to the location by la coccanga owners and I have to say thank you.
The old castle is a huge beautiful hotel and restaurant we were welcomed so nice and warmly by the staff and the atmosphere is taking you back in time as if you are at the ninth century.
The chefs cooking and the service was excellent we enjoyed our food and the desserts were wonderful.
Thank you for your wonderful experience with lots of thanks.

To stay in an 11th century tower. 14th century castle. How much more needs to be said?
Location is exquisite. The beauty is rich, deep in history. The countryside is stunning.
We stayed in the tower- be prepared for the steepest spiral staircase down the the bottom bathroom. Center level is a toilet. Upper is the bed- I would wake with stunning sunrise views, stunning. The top of the tower is just incredible. You see all of the Umbrian valley.
There is no wifi in the tower.
Friends took the room in the main building- very comfortable, well appointed.
Food was excellent, prepared by Michelin star chef. Ambiance was unforgettable.
If you go in late Sept, be sure to visit during the Gubbio festival- there is a candle lit dinner with sword fighting demonstration- unforgettable.
Breakfast was amazing- great cheeses meats etc. the cappuccino was excellent.
Service was excellent from the front to the servers, wait staff, everyone.

My wife and I spent five nights here Sept. 2017. Trust the reviews, this place is magical. Not at all hard to find even at night with GPS (we used both Waze and Google Maps). Majestic castle, we got a very good room downstairs (number 31) with two levels (would have been difficult for anyone with mobility problems), gorgeous view and comfortable fixtures. Very large room and bath, no complaints (save nitpick below). Service is five star but familiar. Lucia B at front desk, Isabella at breakfast and Paolo seemingly everywhere provided seamless top service, down to a chilled bottle of wine on the outside terrace one afternoon. Always smiling and willing. We ate at the hotel restaurant 4 out of 5 nights, it was that good. Prices very reasonable for the quality of food. Nit picks: soap in room too small and does not did up. Daily specials in restaurant were the same for the whole stay. Out of our favorite wine one night and following day, alternative was good. No laundry facility in hotel, no dryer - laundry in Gubbio was great and not costly.
Bottom line: stay here, we would easily go back.
