Discover the wonderful rolling hills and medieval villages of Umbria when you book into Borgo di Carpiano. This medieval estate was once a castle and then a church but was bought in 2001 and lovingly restored to offer a very special escape.
A 10th-century castle, this exclusive escape had been reduced to a pile of rocks over the last few hundred years, but it’s now been restored with magical results.
12 kilometres from the medieval town of Gubbio, the estate includes a wonderful salt-water infinity pool, olive trees and its own forest.
The castle’s rooms reflect the rustic Umbrian landscape that surrounds it – think thick medieval walls, beams, terracotta floors and simple Italian hardwood furniture.
The warmest Italian hospitality awaits every morning along with homemade bread and cakes, local cheese and of course the best coffee, all taken in front of a huge medieval fireplace.
Dine al fresco under a charming wooden awning in the evenings as the magic of this timeless lands shines through. This is Italian country kitchen booking at its finest, using food from the immediate surroundings.
Take in the lush rolling hillsides from your very own pool – there are luxury sun loungers for those that want to while away an afternoon or get up early for a sunrise dip.
