Incredible place, exceeded every expectation!!! The location, secluded and nestled in the hills of Umbria, is unbeatable. The place itself is heavenly, while not pretentious. Riccardo and Marilisa have thought of EVERYTHING! Lovely air-conditioned rooms, with all the comforts, details lovingly in place. Don't bother trying to find better food than Riccardo's, we tried several famous places in the area...

A nice place with a very Romantic admosphere, hidden in the Umbrian hills. An enchanting hospitality and great food (you can ask to eat whatever you would desire!). Nice pool with a stunning view and spacious rooms blessed with an absolute silence during the nights.

My partner and I spent a week at the borgo and had a very hard time leaving it. Marlisa and Ricardo did a splendid job restoring the old church and rebuilding the houses around it. Our room was wonderful, the atmosphere and the food excellent. We will definitely try to come back!

It is hard to imagine a more idyllic place from which to escape the real world. Everything about this heavenly retreat defies comparison - it is unique. Riccardo and Marilisa found an abandoned church with ruined outbuildings in the middle of nowhere, and spent years (and all their money) turning their vision into spectacular reality. Having transformed the ruins into...

Our all too brief stay here was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. We loved everything about this place. The accomodation, the beautiful scenery, the service, the amenities and the food (especially the food) were all superlative. The hosts were gracious, charming, helpful and friendly, so much so that we left feeling as though we were leaving...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The ancient castle of Carpiano is among the hidden treasures of beautiful Umbria. This small hamlet is located at only 12 Km from the medieval town of Gubbio and 22 km from Perugia. In this pleasant place simplicity, elegance and warmth of genuine hospitality are ideally combined. The Borgo is surrounded by secular olive trees and lush woods in a pristine valley crossed by the Ventia stream. The three stone buildings that comprise it are perched on a spur of rock that ends with an infinity pool of salt water overlooking the valley. In the main building, the old church has been restored keeping the original frescoes and has been now converted into library and conversation room hosting classical music concerts and events. During the winter months meals are served in the large dining room in front of the warmth of the old fireplace while in the summer are served in the small square with breathtaking view over the valley.Home made bread, cakes and biscuits, vegetables from the vegetable garden and a search of quality ingredients, all strictly "seasoned with our own olive oil" ....The Borgo has only eight rooms all renovated respecting the original architecture and materials of the time. Get lost in the woods, plan to do very little, get accustomed to the silence are recommended activities!Borgo di Carpiano is also an ideal setting for an exclusive place to celebrate with your friends a special occasion. In house wine, cheese and olive oil tasting, cooking classes, therapeutic treatments and relaxing massages can be arranged. Horse riding, golf, rafting can be found in the nearby surroundings. The Borgo is in a strategic position to visit all the major Umbrian towns. ... more   less
