Have you ever dreamed of visiting a medieval castle in the green hills of Umbria, tasting top wines and hearing the spellbinding anecdotes that have colored the history?
At Castello di Montegiove we offer all this and more. Accommodation in one of our historic farm houses, all kind of venues, visits & wine tours in the old castle and cellars and so much more.
Charming: Montegiove is a charming place in the middle of Umbrian countryside. Beautiful castle renovated by Rikke and Lorenzo in a farm estate with cows, vineyard and olive fields. We rented a stylish house next to the castle, comfortable, clean and well furnished. The infinite edge of the pool offers a wide view on a beautiful landscape.
Last but not least, Rikke and Lorenzo are very nice hosts: warming welcome, good advice about visits and restaurants, every useful service. We spent a really dream week in Montegiove! J.T. Paris
Amazing: Amazing place to stay! Rikke and Lorenzo were super friendly and helpful hosts. My friends and I enjoyed the salt water infinity pool, the wine tasting tour, the local people and area, the castle tour, and our lovely castle apartment. Lorenzo and Rikke were super helpful and gave us advice on the surrounding areas and what to see and do. The castle is an excellent place to also chill out and swim in the pool with the beautiful vista view. We all highly recommend this place to stay. T.S. Moscow
Stunning: We have had a fabulous week in Montegiove. Easily situated for trips out and remote enough for restful days, this is a beautiful spot. We all enjoyed the pool and the castle tour and the grown ups enjoyed the wine! In addition, Rikke and Lorenzo are super hosts, making guests very welcome. Highly recommended. R.D. The Hague
Off the beaten path: We could not have been more pleased with our choice of Castle Montegiove as the home base for our visit to Italy. Our hosts Lorenzo and Rikke could not have been more gracious and helpful. Our 3br/2ba apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped. On site we were treated to a tour of the castle and Montegiove´s estate and learned about the art of winery. Our men had great fun hunting truffles with our guide and his truffle hunting dog Luna. Our location allowed us to make awesome day trips to nearby Todi, Orvieto, Scarzuola and Greppolischietto. A round trip train ride to Florence (Firenze) gave us plenty of time to see Michaelangelo´s Davide and many other of Florence´s historical sites and shops. Our final day we woke up to find the entire valley around us shrouded in fog as our castle above the clouds were bathed in sunshine. A truly gorgeous day to end our stay. To be able to visit the small villages and towns off the beaten path and experience some of Italy´s scenic beauty made Castle Montegiove an excellent choice for us. Many thanks to our hosts for making it all possible. C.H. Alabama
True Italian Experience: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rikke and Lorenzo take you back in time as you explore the Castello and the surrounding area. It is a true Italian experience that allows you to relax and enjoy authentic Italy. We have traveled through Italy many times, but we have fallen in love with Umbria now thanks to this lovely family and place. E.F. Texas
