About Rikke Misciattelli
In 2002 we moved from Copenhagen in Denmark, where we both grew up, to Montegiove to take over the daily management of the family estate “Castello di Montegiove”. We have never regretted this decision, even though the first years in Montegiove were not at all like a fairytale. The castle had to be completely restored; the roofs all had big holes so we spent all rainy days running around with pots and pans to pick up the water. Today the castle has been through a thorough and respectful renovation. Lorenzo: I spent almost all my childhood summers together with my grandfather in Montegiove, following daily life at the estate and in the wine cellar. I still recall adventuring round in the castle and walks in the splendid and unspoiled nature around Montegiove. I always hoped, that one day, I could take care of the estate, and that happened after years of study at the “Royal Veterinarian and Agricultural University” and the “University of Aberdeen” ending up with a Ph.D. and a short carrier as scientist and assistant professor, before moving to Italy. Rikke: I worked with pattern making and designs in the fashion industry before moving to Italy. My big passion is decorating and putting things in order so moving to a place like this where everything needed a loving hand has been a fantastic challenge for me. Today I am the practical person in the household making all ends meet for our busy modern family. We still feel so lucky waking up in the morning and looking out at the beautiful valley, and we are never getting tired of the absolute silence and peace that is so rare to find in the modern world of today. Sometimes the clouds are hanging lower than Montegiove and it feels like we are on an island in the middle of the sea.
Rikke Misciattelli purchased this Castle in 1780
Why Rikke Misciattelli chose Montegiove
Lorenzo inherited the property together with his sister from their grandfather Paolo. The property has been in the Misciattelli family since 1780.
What makes this Castle unique
Staying in our guest houses is experiencing true italian relaxing country lifestyle first hand. We can arrange for a nice local lady to come and cook for you in the house, we can organise truffle hunting with our skilled truffle hunters and their dogs, we would love to show you our castle and wine cellar and share a glass of wine with you, while explaining everything about winemaking. You can hike the private trails of the estate and enjoy the silence of the unspoiled nature. If you travel gluten free we even have a box with kitchen tools and an oven for our Celiac guests and of course a guide to gluten free restaurants and shopping in the area. Castello di Montegiove in Umbria is a fairytale come true.
