Description

Luxury villas in Umbria don’t come more impressive than a restored 11th century castle and that’s exactly what you’ll get at Castiglione Ugolino. With sweeping views over Umbria’s verdant Tiber Valley, the location is pretty epic too.

By day, bask in the warm Italian sun in the villa’s expansive gardens – admiring the views of surrounding olive groves, vineyards and gently rolling hills as you cool off in the large infinity pool. As the light fades, pour yourself an Aperol Spritz to watch a spectacular sunset from the covered pergola which houses a lovely al fresco dining table, or on the panoramic terrace for unbelieve views of the countryside beyond.

Inside, the décor is stylish but paired back and neutral, so as to showcase the castle’s original features, which have been lovingly restored to all their former glory. Exposed beams in the vaulted ceilings, authentic terracotta floor tiles and a huge stone fireplace give the villa something of an Italian farmhouse feel. Meanwhile six spacious bedrooms and their impressive marble bathrooms ensure the villa is every bit as grand as you’d expect in a castle. Across the gardens a smaller annex building features four equally beautiful bedrooms and a second kitchen and lounge.

With so many serene spots to relax and socialise in, this luxury villa in Italy is perfect for families and friends, but for couples looking to tie the knot, it really comes into its own. Adjacent to the villa you’ll find the gorgeous Church of Santa Maria Maddalena which has been incredibly well preserved to act as an idyllic setting for a wedding in Umbria, with original frescos adorning the grand arched ceiling.

Eating

Since Castiglione Ugolino is part of a private estate, you will have access to a variety of dining options during your stay here.

Of course the villa and annex both have kitchens, so you can enjoy plenty of cooking, with sunset dinners out on the terrace a particular highlight. Alternatively, if you prefer to have the hard work taken care of, the estate concierge can arrange for experienced chefs to come in and prepare a feast at any time of day.

For something more special, you could venture out to the estate’s Il Caldaro restaurant and indulge in traditional Umbrian dishes with a modern twist.

During your stay, you’ll also want to take advantage of your enviable location amongst the vineyards and fertile countryside, and enjoy a wine tasting or cooking class, both of which can be organised on the estate. For a true taste of Tuscany, embark on a truffle hunt on the estate and taste the diamonds of the culinary world with an Aperitivo. There is even an Orangerie Bar and wine cellar for when you can only manage a drink.

Kids

Older children will adore Castiglione Ugolino. Its space and greenery are the perfect setting for endless games of hide and seek, and the swimming pool is an obvious focal point for boisterous water babies. Plus, several comfortable lounge areas with smart TVs mean the kids will remain happily entertained even when the sun goes down.

Although Castiglione Ugolino is not necessarily set up to cater for toddlers, with its hard floors and multiple levels, baby cots, high-chairs and baby bathtubs can all be organised on request. So, with some supervision, parents should feel confident in bringing their little ones on holiday here.
