Overview

Photos and Description of this Gubbio holiday villa

5 Bedrooms, 16.0 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps

Host the event of a lifetime at Castello Ducale. Built in the Middle Ages to defend the town of Gubbio, the fourteen-bedroom villa near Perugia blends walls that have stood for centuries with recently renovated interiors. The 1,200-acre estate, large garden and separate guest quarters give parties of up to 30 guests plenty of space, and much of the property is wheelchair-accessible.

During your stay, spend time exploring the surrounding village and forests, strolling the rose garden, swimming in the pool or playing billiards and ping-pong. Lounge in one of the Jacuzzi tubs or on a chaise by the pool, and enjoy al-fresco meals at the long table in the courtyard. Thanks to the 2009 restoration, even the medieval parts of the villa now have under-floor heating, a computer and Wi-Fi access.

From the stone walls and tile floors to the beamed ceilings and elaborate fireplace mantels, youll be surrounded by history at Castello Ducale. The common areas have been furnished with antiques like carved armoires, roll-arm loveseats and spindle-leg tables for a comfortably elegant feel. Dine at a long table in the splendor of the great hall, or enjoy a casual meal over farmhouse-style tables and ladder-back chairs. The stainless steel kitchen is fully equipped for either a simple coffee and snack or a professionally catered meal.

Each of the castles fourteen bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. There are seven bedrooms in the main castle, and seven in the guest quarters, which can be reached by crossing the courtyard or via secret passageway. In the castle, youll find five bedrooms with double beds, one of which has a Jacuzzi and sitting area, and two bedrooms with two twin beds each. In the guest quarters, there are six bedrooms with double beds, two of which are wheelchair-accessible, and one bedroom with two double beds and a Jacuzzi.

Just over a mile from Castello Ducale, youll find a small supermarket in the village of Carbonesca. Its a 7-mile drive to a tennis court, a 9-mile drive to the nearest restaurants, 12 miles to the train station and 15 miles to the golf course. Visit Gubbio, 13 miles away, Perugia and Umbertide, each 30 miles away, or Lake Trasimeno, 45 miles away. At arrival or departure, plan on a 40-minute drive to the airport.

Fabulous house, beautiful surroundings, excellent service

  • 5 of 5

Our first view of the villa, as we came down the drive, took our breath away. Arriving, and being shown around, only increased the excitement. Catello Ducale is fabulous! We loved the grand staircase and the small and large living rooms, including the terrace at the end with the magnificent views. The banqueting hall was fabulous as was the pool, and we looked the games room. all in all this is an amazing place, which ticked every box for us. the thing i have to mention however, which put this holiday in the 'outstanding' box were the amazing on site staff, Christian and his wife Petra. they looked after us wonderfully and nothing was too much trouble. Their help and kindness was commented on by all. thank you Luxury retreats for a wonderful holiday.

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!
