Overview of Castello Gubbio

What Oliver loves…

  • Unique complex with romantic rooms and ancient furniture.
  • Guests can get lost in the 500 hectares property and hunting reserve.
  • Guests can sample true Italian living: the traditional cuisine, wine tasting, cooking lessons, trekking and cycling.

What you should know…

  • The castle is far from the sea and lakes.
  • The property is more suitable for larger groups.

For those in search of an 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 its 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 a beautiful pool which looks out over the hilly 1400 acre estate.  The estate is signposted with beautiful walks, and in the appropriate season guests 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.

Map, Location & Local Information

Castello Gubbio is situated on a promontory in Umbria, the region called "the green heart of Italy", in the territory of Gubbio, surrounded by a large loop of the Chiascio river. It overlooks the Cucco Mount, which has summer sports (trekking and delta plane) and winter sports (skiing) available.

Immerged in an uncontaminated landscape, bordered by woods, grasslands and waters, the history of Castello Gubbio dates 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 to go against the Noble Antonio da Montefeltro, Lord of Urbino and Gubbio. Magrano was then severely assaulted with the destruction of its mill (which was built again and still exists today) but the soldiers of the Montefeltro family failed 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 deer and wild boars that still populate the residence today. This hunting was always finished with a banquet during which guests appreciated the most precious fruits of this land, particularly the truffle.

In 1600, the ownership of the castle went to the noble family of the Carpegna, a family of bishops, cardinals and Priori of various cities in Umbria and Lazio.

In 1830, Magrano became the property of the family that still today owns it. More specifically, it went to the Princess Giulia Bonaparte, daughter of two first cousins, Zenaide and Carlo Luciano Bonaparte Prince of Canino, who were both nephews of Napoleon.

It is in this charming corner of nature, in this place so full of tradition and history, that guests can spend some nice days of relaxation and entertainment.
