Three building compose the Castle: the oldest one is the 20 meters heights watch Tower, now house of a romantic and fascinating room with a amazing open terrace right at top; then the main and bigger structure also called “Major Castellare”, it was the Noble family house, full of antique living halls, the “Lord and Lady” Suite and the nice Library with reading room; then the so called “Smaller Castellare” where the Castle’s guardians used to live.

The Castle of Petroia is composed of medieval buildings enclosed within the Castle's walls.
The origins date back to the XII century when the castle was built in a beautiful setting between Gubbio and Perugia, overlooking the Chiascio valley. It was the stage of many important events during the XIII and XIV centuries. The entire complex was restored between 1982 and 1990, carefully preserving the authentic structure of the Castle.

The Castle is composed of three buildings: the "Castellare Maggiore" (the main part), the "Castellare Minore" (the smaller part) and the "Mastio", the building that surrounds the ancient Tower of the Castle .
The 13 guestrooms are all in these three buildings.

The hilltop location sits on a tree-lined summit overlooking the Chiascio valley, which offers a picturesque landscape beloved by the artists il Perugino and Piero della Francesca.

Near the Castle there is the farm of Petroia, with its park and acres of pristine forest: there, you can see herds of purebred Chianina cattle, grazing in the open pastures.

The Castle is surrounded with a 800 acres estate, so you can just enjoy nice view, and walking just in the middle of peace and tranquility.
