Monte Castello di Vibio



A foodie stay at a tranquil 16th-century castle, with breakfast, discounted cooking and pottery classes, and more

Nestled within the serene medieval village of Monte Castello di Vibio in Perugia, Relais il Castello is the perfect spot for some serious downtime. Housed within a beautiful 16th-century castle that's been finely restored while keeping many of its original features, the Relais shows off fabulous views over lush greenery in this picturesque corner of Italy. Rooms are of the simple, rustic variety and there’s an outdoor swimming pool for soaking up some sizzling rays.

The Umbrian countryside is notoriously beautiful, so those with a penchant for outdoor exploration will find themselves in their element here. Wake late and enjoy a delicious breakfast before exploring the medieval village of Monte Castello di Vibio and its labyrinthine streets. Return later for typical Umbrian dinner at the restaurant, or kick back on the terrace to drink in the wonderful views... as well as a nice glass of Chianti, naturally. You could even take a few skills home with you, from pottery-making to cooking, with a number of activities available on site. Relais il Castello was awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
