The Experience

Utterly unwind in this tiny hamlet with uninterrupted views of the woodland surrounding you. You’re in the grounds of a medieval castle and you’ll feel decidedly romantic. Pale cream stone encases this former olive mill and once inside an informal elegance makes hours spent lounging on the comfortable sofas easy. Plonk yourself next to the pile of books and games and indulge.

Seasonal fruits, the estate’s own wine and day one’s breakfast comes as standard. Break your fast on the private patio or picnic at your favourite spot – with 1200 hectares you’ve plenty to choose from. The country-style kitchen makes cooking a breeze. Rikke can organise a local to whip up something seasonal and delicious – you’re welcome to join in and master some local dishes.

You’re in isolation here but adventure can be found; explore local hamlets on foot or rented bike and a train can take you to Rome and Florence for gelato and city life.

Reviews

Castello di Montegiove was a lovely place to stay and we had a very relaxing fortnight there as a family of four. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable. The outside space was stunning and the walk to the swimming pool around the ramparts of the castle quite magical. Easy to drive to the Umbrian cities as well as Rome and Florence for interesting days out. Rikke and Lorenzo were fantastic hosts organising a tour and truffle hunt for us; would definitely recommend a stay in this wonderful place!

Mel, Tonbridge

100% special. Floating high above rolling wooded hills with uninterrupted views in all directions, you are essentially staying in the grounds of a fairytale medieval castle on the edge of a tiny hamlet. Here you really are immersed in the green heart of Italy and you can congratulate yourself for having discovered such a fabulous spot.

Location

The neighbourhood

Explore the hamlet of Montegiove - a jewel complete with church, Norcineria butchers and a bar. Just 15 minutes down the street is Paolo’s wine bar - enjoy salami, formaggi and a delicious red with the panoramic views from the terrace. There’s truffle hunting and wine tasting on the Estate and wooded walks to Greppolischietto to spy Lake Trasimeno from afar. The extraordinary ex Franciscan convent of La Scarzuola is a 3km stroll; it was converted in the 50s to a surreal, fantastical space used for summer theatrical performances – ask Rikke to book a tour.

Local points of interest from Rikke Misciattelli

  • Wine tasting at the castle. We offer wine tasting and guided tours of the castle for all our guests. Come and see how we make our wines while we tell you the fascinating history of the Castello di Montegiove.
  • La Scarzuola. An old Franciscan convent restored and converted by architect Tommaso Buzzi with all his funny architectural ideas and project.
  • Orvieto. The most beautiful hill top town with a gigantic striped duomo, a well with a spiral staircase made for donkeys many years ago and a funicular/ tram that will transport you up to the town from the train station.
  • Citta della Pieve. A charming busy town with schools, shops and the most narrow street in the world called Via Bacciedonne. Our favourite town with some of the best restaurants in the area.
  • Rent a bike or go trekking in the amazing nature reserve around and below the castle and village of Montegiove.
  • Montegiove is half way from Rome and Florence so it is easy to do day trips to both. You can leave the car at the train station in Fabro/Ficulle and enjoy a relaxing trip or you can drive yourself.

Introducing

Rikke Misciattelli

Good food and wine-making are Rikke and Lorenzo’s passions; our kinds of people. You’ll be hard-pressed to receive a warmer welcome from these two; ask for a tour of their wine cellar and of course a sample of your own. The Marquises returned from Denmark to renovate the family castle and its outbuildings. They’re on hand to recommend woodland walks, bike tours and excursions.
