This magnificent castle dates back to the early Middle Ages (1200 AC), during which it was the focus of defence of the town of Gubbio against Perugia. Inaugurated in 2009 after four years of meticulous renovation, Castello Ducale is in the middle of an untouched village, surrounded by forests, meadows and near the waters of the river Chiascio.
The castle is part of an estate of 500 hectares, where forests and fields offer a variety of paths for horse riding and itineraries for amazing walks. A beautiful garden of 5.000 sqm surrounds the castle, with its rose garden, century old trees and a large swimming pool.
The owners of the estate are descendants of the family of Napoleon Bonaparte and they have elegantly furnished the living areas and bedrooms in the empire style with the family’s antique furniture.
In the watch tower, bedrooms have been constructed, two of them so large that they cover the entire perimeter of the tower.
The kitchen, a highly functional, professional stainless steel kitchen, is intended for use by clients and staff and is more than adequate for catering for wedding receptions or parties. It has direct access to the inner courtyard of the castle as well as the other outdoor areas.
The guest quarters are independent but are also connected to the castle by an old secret passageway. Wheelchair users are welcome.
Together with the guest quarters, Castello Ducale can accommodate up to 30 guests and the price includes both a daily maid service (except on Sundays) as well as daily breakfast preparation (except on Sundays, cost of the food excluded). On request, a chef can be hired to provide dinner which may be enjoyed in the magnificent setting of the courtyard within the wonderful castle walls or otherwise outside the castle in the terrace area in front of the park, close to the kitchen.
The location of the castle allows for relaxed morning and afternoon excursions to Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi and Cortona. In addition, daytrips to Siena, Florence, Montepulciano and Orvieto can easily be arranged.
The caretaker speaks perfect English.
Staying at Castello Ducale means having a wonderful holiday in a place of your dreams, where you may find yourself recalling the feeling of being a ‘lady or a knight of the court’ in a natural and historical setting and where you cannot help forgetting the daily trials and tribulations of the 21st century.

Our family had the privilege of spending a week at Castello Ducale in July, 2012 and we all agreed the experience was fantastic. The castle was beautifully restored with a perfect blend of family antiques and modern conveniences. We especially enjoyed exploring the hiking trails around the estate and relaxing in the perfectly groomed lawns and pool areas. Christian and his wife Petra, caretakers of the estate, were wonderful, they supplied everything we needed or wanted with a smile. We enjoyed their company so much, they made us feel like family. Stephano and his wife prepared amazing dinners for us, everything was delicious.
The staff at Home in Italy were excellent to work with, all of the questions or concerns we had were addressed quickly and efficiently, we would use them again. We hope to return to Castello Ducale for another wonderful vacation.

Celine and Monina,

I cannot thank you two enough! Our stay at Castello Ducale was absolutely fabulous! I truly appreciate all your hard work in assisting us with all the details and smoothing out the complications we had previous to our visit. You went above and beyond, which is sometimes rare and wonderful to see these days in a customer service oriented industry. It will certainly persuade our future decisions in looking for places to stay on future visits to Italy, as well as recommendations to friends and family.

With regards to Castello Ducale, what a beautiful location and facility. It was just perfect for what we were looking for, a castle/villa feel where we could feel at home in our surroundings, yet with a pampered touch. The castle was beautifully restored and the grounds were lovely. The grounds keeper, Christian, and his wife, Petra, were exceptional. They bent over backwards to make sure all our needs were taken care of and always with a smile or a joke, so that by the end of the week they were almost like family. He even arranged for our dinner at a local restaurant for our group of 24 on the chef's night off. The chef at the castle was outstanding, my only complaint would be that he gave us too much food!! But it was great. We truly enjoyed the wine tasting, the Sommelier brought an excellent selection of wines and she was very friendly and knowledgeable. Both the wine tasting and the cost of groceries for the week were very reasonable, there were no hidden costs or surprises. Everything was taken care of in such a way that we were able to just sit back, relax and enjoy our friends, family and the surroundings.

Thank you!

Until our next visit, warm regards,

Dee Dee
