Overview

Wedding Venue Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome All Bedrooms En-Suite Ideal for Parties

With its majestic hilltop position overlooking the Tiber valley, ancient Castello Maddalena offers a truly unforgettable escape. This 11th-century castle and adjoining church has undergone a thorough and careful renovation to become a truly impressive place for rest and relaxation. Breathtaking views over rolling countryside, hills, vineyards and olive groves can be enjoyed both inside and out, with Castello Maddalena being surrounded by expansive gardens.

Just some of the interior's many historic features include gorgeous reclaimed terracotta floor tiles, vaulted ceilings, ancient frescoes and marble stairs. The church showcases a range of hand-painted decorations and is a wonderfully romantic place for special occasions or for simply stopping and taking in the beauty and history.

There are six luxurious bedrooms at Castello Maddalena, with each boasting an ensuite marble bathroom and an array of sumptuous, modern features. These incredibly restful spaces are matched in comfort by the several living spaces on offer. And there's always somewhere to suit the mood. Whether that's when you want to get together with loved ones in front of a roaring fire, or for spending quiet time alone with a good book. Meal times are cosy at the large dining table under a charming wood-beamed ceiling.

The star of the show when it comes to the extensive outside space is the large infinity pool with idyllic views. These views are even more spectacular at sunset, as you watch the skies turning all shades of pink and orange behind the hills. Al fresco meals at the dining table get you as equally close to the stunning surrounding scenery too. Stroll around the gardens and marvel at the privileged position Castello Maddalena occupies in this gorgeous area of Umbria.

The villa is part of a huge private estate in the hills, with woods, olive groves, valleys and rivers on the doorstep for exploring. If you're lucky, long walks will have you spotting a range of wildlife, as well as beautiful flora. The farm on the estate is home to some very friendly animals too!

Stunning Lake Trasimeno is a 45-minute drive away. Enjoy plenty of historic sightseeing in the fascinating towns of Perugia, Gubbio, Città di Castello and Assisi - which are all within easy reach.

Surrounded by the lush hills, valleys, olive groves, vineyards, lakes and rivers of a huge private estate, the villa offers total peace and tranquillity. Step outside and be exploring the beautiful landscapes on long country walks in mere moments.

Despite Castello Maddalena being tucked away in such a rural idyll, amenities are easy to reach. The nearest village is less than 10 minutes away by car and is where you'll find amenities such as shops and a bank. The closest restaurant is located on the estate itself - and is just five minutes away from the villa.

The popular city of Perugia is well-known for its chocolate, so it's definitely one for those with a sweet tooth! It's also full of medieval and Renaissance buildings and structures. Highlights include the Gothic cathedral, Priori Palace and the marble fountain carved with biblical scenes and zodiac signs, Fontana Maggiore.

Gubbio is a pretty medieval town with a particularly fun feature – the Funivia Colle Eletto. This stand-up cable car takes you up to the top of Monte Ingino, taking in some breathtaking scenery along the way. Waiting for you at the top is Sant'Ubaldo Basilica and views over the Apennines Mountains.

Città di Castello is the dream place to visit for art lovers. The city boasts a wealth of Renaissance architecture and centuries of history. The 14th-century Church of San Domenico is home to many 15th-century frescoes by some of Italy's most-famous Renaissance painters.

Head to Palazzo Vitelli alla Cannoniera to stroll around the Municipal Art Gallery (Pinacoteca) and take in even more works by painters such as Raphael, Lorenzetti and Signorelli. Other must-visits in the city include the Cathedral of Saint Florido with its bell tower, and the Cathedral Museum.

Lake Trasimeno is a natural beauty, with idyllic stretches of water and an array of wildlife. The town of Castiglione del Lago offers a sandy beach with the chance to hire sun loungers, pedalos and canoes.

Region

Umbria has best of Italy to offer: rolling landscapes, wine, beautiful towns and villages, olive oil, expansive lakes and the food, glorious food. A holiday here can be as lazy, active, cultured and as delicious as you like.

This region is scattered with pretty, picturesque villages, while the area has a rich cultural heritage. From thermal pools to medieval cathedrals and olive oil museum, Umbria has an intriguing amount of history to discover.

Both Rome and Florence are accessible within a day trip, while the closest towns of interest would be Orvieto, the old town which is a fascinating series of winding streets, piazzas and a colourful weekly market. 

History lovers will be spoilt - from the first century Roman amphitheatres to the twelfth-century duomos, to the fourteenth-century hilltop fortresses,  the glut of remnants from the medieval and Bronze Age that punctuate the region is impressive.
