Castello Di Monterone

Top choice hotel in Perugia

Ever fancied spending the night in a medieval castle? This is the real McCoy, with all the turreted, ivy-clad, vaulted trappings you would imagine. The individually designed rooms have been finished to great effect, with exposed stone, custom wooden furniture, handmade wrought-iron beds, antiques and occasional but extraordinary Etruscan and medieval artefacts.

A pool with sweeping views over the rolling countryside and a modern restaurant add to its appeal.The hotel is situated 3.2km east of the centre; see the website for exact directions.
