Property description

For those in search of a enchanting castle retreat, Castello Gubbio is the perfect choice!

It was built in the middle ages to defend the town of Gubbio against Perugia. The castle has retained it defensive character from the outside, but four years of intensive renovation have turned the interior into an extremely welcoming and comfortable house.

The castle is surrounded by a park with century old trees, large lawns and beautiful pool which looks out over the hilly 1400 acre estate. The estate is signposted with beautiful walks and in the appropriate season you can even go truffle hunting with local experts. The owners of the estate are descendants of the family of Napoleon Bonaparte and the castle has been in their family since 1830.?

Castello Gubbio comfortably sleeps 14 in beautifully furnished bedrooms. Each has been filled with Italian, French and German antique furniture, and every room offers a high quality level, thanks to the equipment and services (we actually offer two whirlpool baths and a mini swimming pool inside the room).

The attic room is equipped with a wooden parquet, and offers two double bedrooms, two baths and a living room with kitchenette.

We offer half board service and light lunch: groups of min. 10 people can book our dinner service with a chef de cuisine and a waiter paying 100€ per group (80€ per group for a light lunch) in addition to the cost of food and beverage.

Our guests can use a billiard, a dining room, a living room, some reading corners, a well equipped kitchen, two toilets, a swimming pool with locker room and showers, a car park, a garden with bowls playground, TV, DVD players, CD players and free WiFi in the whole house.

Castello Gubbio can also be rented for 22 or 30 people, at additional cost.

Surrounded by a large loop of the Chiascio river, in the territory of Gubbio, in Umbria, the region so called the ''Green heart of Italy'', on a promontory from which the view arrives up to the Cucco Mount, has been built Castello Gubbio.

Immersed in an uncontaminated landscape, bordered by woods, grasslands and waters, the history of Castello Gubbio is dating back to the middle ages, when it was the heart of the defence of the Commune of Gubbio against Perugia.

The local village can be reached in 8 minutes by car. Gems such as Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Spoleto and Todi are all within easy reach.?

History

In 1391 Melchiorre Montaiti, Lord Magrano, undertook against the Noble Antonio da Montefeltro, Lord of Urbino and Gubbio: Magrano was then severely assaulted with the destruction of its mill (then built again and still existing nowadays) but the soldiers of the Montefeltro family did not succeed to take over the Castle.

In 1431 Magrano moved under the jurisdiction of the Dukes of Montefeltro. Federico da Montefeltro (1422-1482) turned it into his favourite hunting residence; it is said that the Duke was active in the hunting of the fallow deers and wild boars that are still populating the residence; this hunting was always finishing with a banquet during which were appreciated the most precious fruits of this land, among which in particular the truffle.

In 1600 the ownership of the Castle went to the Noble family of the Carpegna, family to which were belonging bishops, cardinals and Priori of various cities in Umbria and Lazio.

In 1830 Magrano becomes the property of the family that still nowadays is the owner of the residence: more specifically to the Princess Giulia Bonaparte, daughter of two first grade cousins Zenaide and Carlo Luciano Bonaparte Prince of Canino, both nephews of Napoleon.

It is in this charming corner of nature, in this place so full of traditions and history, that you can spend some nice days of relax and entertainment, not far away from fascinating cities of art such as Gubbio, Gualdo Tadino, Nocera Umbra, Perugia and Assisi in addition to the park of the Cucco Mount with its summer sports (trekking and delta plane) and winter sports (skiing).
