AMAZING CASTELLO DUCALE IS A RESTORED AND RENOVATED CASTLE SURROUNDED BY FOREST

Le Piazze Villa Rental Photos and Description

11 Bedrooms, 16 Bathrooms, 22 Sleeps

This magnificent castle dates back to the early Middle Ages (1200 AC), during which it was the focus of defence of the town of Gubbio against Perugia. Inaugurated in 2009 after four years of meticulous renovation, Castello Ducale is in the middle of an untouched village, surrounded by forests, meadows and near the waters of the river Chiascio. The castle is part of an estate of 500 hectares, where forests and fields offer a variety of paths for horse riding and itineraries for amazing walks. A beautiful garden of 5.000 sqm surrounds the castle, with its rose garden, century old trees and a large swimming pool. The owners of the estate are descendants of the family of Napoleon Bonaparte and they have elegantly furnished the living areas and bedrooms in the empire style with the family’s antique furniture.

In the watch tower, bedrooms have been constructed, two of them so large that they cover the entire perimeter of the tower.

The kitchen, a highly functional, professional stainless steel kitchen - is intended for use by clients and staff and is more than adequate for catering for wedding receptions or parties. It has direct access to the inner courtyard of the castle as well as the other outdoor areas.

The guest quarters are independent but are also connected to the castle by an old secret passageway. Wheelchair users are welcome. Together with the guest quarters, Castello Ducale can accommodate up to 30 guests. On request, a chef can be hired to provide dinner which may be enjoyed in the magnificent setting of the courtyard within the wonderful castle walls or otherwise outside the castle in the terrace area in front of the park, close to the kitchen.

The location of the castle allows for relaxed morning and afternoon excursions to Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi and Cortona. In addition, daytrips to Siena, Florence, Montepulciano and Orvieto can easily be arranged.

Staying at Castello Ducale means having a wonderful holiday in a place of your dreams, where you may find yourself recalling the feeling of being a ‘lady or a knight of the court’ in a natural and historical setting and where you cannot help to forget the daily trials and tribulations of the 21st century.

FAIRYTALE CASTLE, DREAM WEDDING IN THE ITALIAN COUNTRYSIDE

  • 5 of 5
Staying at Castello Ducale was definitely a wonderful experience. During the week of our stay, we hosted our wedding celebration. The property was fit for a Dream wedding. The property, bedrooms and bathrooms were all very clean and were kept in excellent condition. There was so much space for our wedding celebration and had 30 of our closest family and friends stay with us. With a house full of people, there was never a lack of hot water. The pictures of the property were all very accurate with no surprises. The only unexpected thing was the distance of the castle from all the major towns like Assisi, Gubbio, Orvieto, Siena and Perugia. The shortest drive was 30 minutes to an 1 hour away. Anyone looking at this property should be prepared for the travel time. The caretakers were very pleasant to have around and were always quick to make everyone comfortable. It was a wonderful vacation that our family and friends will continue to talk about for years to come.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT WEEK IN LOVELY SURROUNDINGS.

  • 5 of 5
Castello Ducale was fabulous and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. I was there to celebrate my 50th birthday with a group of 22 friends, not all of whom knew each other. Because the accommodation is so well set out, none of us felt like we were on top of each other.
A week wasn't long enough!
