A stay in the Castle Nardelli, dating back to the 11th century, is truly a unique, once in a lifetime experience to live and breathe a romantic, elegant and ancient hill-top castle!

After a five-year loving restoration, the Stocchi family finally opened their doors to the public in 2013 – inviting guests to experience this majestic architectural masterpiece for themselves. Inside, there are seemingly endless communal areas, including The Convivial Room, the living room, the study, the Assembly Hall and the kitchen and the dining room. Facilities for conferences, exhibitions, speeches and exceptional events including weddings and banquets are all on site, with the Convivial Room able to host 50 guests to dine, and the Assembly Hall with a capacity of 100! The professional kitchen is well-prepared should catering services be required, while the charming dining room can be set up for more casual meals.

There are eight captivating bedrooms, able to accommodate up to sixteen guests, between seven doubles and one twin room, and while each is utterly exceptional, all are equally beautiful, warm and welcoming. A charming fusion of ancient and modern styles creates bright, cosy and indeed joyful environments of warm tones, soft shapes and majestic furnishings. From intricately designed and decorated walls and artwork to a private patio, each has demonstrable attention to detail that we simply adore. The Imperial Suite, or the ‘Bride and Groom Suite’ is the most romantic of all the rooms and includes a kitchen, living area and a bathroom complete with a chromotherapy shower! In addition to the delightful ensuite bathrooms in each room, there are exclusive wellness facilities in the castle: simply slip on your bathrobe, slippers and swim cap, all provided for your leisure, and indulge in the intimate jacuzzi (complete with waterfall feature!), Finnish sauna and Turkish bath to reinvigorate!

As well as these interior delights, Castle Nardelli has a fine landscape of enchanting gardens. Beautifully lit lawns make for a wonderful evening stroll, while the viewpoint offers breath-taking, panoramic scenes of the undulating hills and the valley of the Candigliano river. The inner Courtyard and the Tower, the highest point of the castle, offer the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or even breakfast in the fresh air, or an adventure through the colours and fragrances of the medicinal herb garden. Dine, indeed feast(!), in the higher garden, in front of the Castle and the Chapel, with truly sublime views.

Castle Nardelli will guarantee you a truly unforgettable experience in a painstakingly restored Medieval Castle, in the heart of Italy’s sublime natural landscape.

Sitting atop a delightful hill in the Central Apennines, the ‘Wild Heart of Italy’, Castle Nardelli is in the perfect location for nature-lovers and active groups. Depart from the front door and make your own adventures through the fragrant, winding valley and along the mountain paths. Each turn will bring you to a new experience, perhaps a medieval hamlet or a surprise panorama over the hills.

At the junction where Le Marche, Emilia-Romagna, Umbria and Tuscany meet, four of Italy’s exquisite central regions, the diverse natural landscape encompasses sandy coves and limestone cliffs on the coastline and olive groves and vineyards inland. Medieval cities and villages dissect a vibrant, diverse countryside sprinkled with fortified hilltop settlements, rich in history and modern wonders alike.

Such a perfect location between four of Italy’s most fascinating regions ensures an ideal base for exploring central Italy and the delicate charm of the ‘birthplace of Western society’. Experience not only the rich history and culture but of course the gastronomy for which the Italian’s are famous! Tuscany is of course a famous wine-producing region and Emilia-Romagna is in fact the birthplace of balsamic vinegar, while this central region is famous for its use of pork products in cooking and of course the coastal regions are famous for their fish!

Italy is in fact home to the greatest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world. With such an ideal central location, you couldn’t be better placed to get out and explore some of these breath-taking sites, with world-famous art, monuments and historical sites dispersed throughout the country! More modern delights, including its thriving fashion industry and famous luxury sports cars and motorbikes, as well as sublime natural wonders, including the Alps and Apennines and the extensive captivating coastline, put Italy a cut above the rest.
