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.

“I can't say enough great things about our time at Castello Ducale. The staff was incredible leading up to our stay. There were so many details in planning an event with 31 people, but our concierg did an amazing job. She was in constant contact with me and was ok with any and all of my requests- no matter how "out of the box" they may have been. When we arrived at Castello Ducale-it is somewhat remote-we couldn't believe how lovely it was! Everything was more beautiful than we imagined. The staff was incredible! Irini and Maria were gracious and kind hosts. They took care of us the whole week. The food was spectacular! We had archery lessons -HUGE HIT, cooking lessons -we still practice the lessons, took excursions! Not enough space here to list all of the cool things about the castle. We didn't even mind no air conditioning! The rooms were comfortable (a few scorpions added excitement). We will talk about our time in a real castle for many years!”
