Una settimana fantastica! - A perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a magnificent stay in this beautiful historic building! The view from the roof terrace and from the terrace on the first floor is fantastic, the interior is beautifully restored and well-equipped, the surrounding is amazing - hiking paths start right behind the village. Most of the time we just liked to stay in the castle and to sit in the garden. Everything was just perfect: communication was easy, we had a warm, friendly welcome and received useful information. We definitely recommend it and will come back as soon as possible!

THE VILLAGE Morcicchia is a charming medieval village with stone houses, lovingly restored, a square and a lot of stairs. Immersed in the silence of the woods and not far from many important cities of art and culture, the village lies at the foot of the castle, it closed in thick walls, inside of which remain intact the imposing tower and the former stables. Here is welcome who is looking for tranquility and rest, which is in a place of great beauty, dominated by the views of the Martani Mountains, overlooking the valley of Spoleto, and those in search of culture, which meets in many small towns rich history and art, and in the many churches and castles scattered throughout the territory and perched on the hills.

LANDSCAPE Morcicchia is the natural starting point for pleasant walks in a pristine environment with unique landscapes.

ART AND CULTURE A stay at the Castello allows you to get in touch with the refined Umbrian culture. Assisi, Spoleto, Gubbio, Todi, Montefalco and Bevagna are only the most famous medieval old towns in the short distance from Morcicchia that offer important examples of medieval art in the frescoes and in the architecture of churches and public buildings that overlook vibrant squares; testimonials accompanied by traditional cuisine of the highest quality.

SPORT AND LEISURE The surroundings of Morcicchia offer the best opportunities for walking, mountain biking, horse riding and walking in the hills and mountains. It 'also possible to bathe in the hot springs. In summer across the region we are organized festivals, fairs and local festivals. For children there is available a large playground.

The ACCOMMODATION is in the Castle Tower.
