Fodor's Expert Review Castello di Petroia

Località Petroia, Gubbio, Umbria, 06024, Italy Fodor's Choice

This atmospheric 12th-century castle 15 km (9 miles) from Gubbio offers spacious antiques-filled rooms, some with decorated or beamed ceilings and stained glass, and excellent in-house dining for both dinner and breakfast. Each of the 15 rooms is individually decorated, and many include Jacuzzi tubs. Dinner is served in the candlelit, stone-walled dining room—with a roaring fire in colder weather—and offers both regional specialties, including many dishes prepared with Chianina veal, raised on the castle grounds, as well as a special menu of medieval dishes.
