We review each country house on a scale of 3 to 5, with 5 being the best category. We have looked at price, quality and x-factor and come up with a comprehensive review, which is largely made with the heart, and therefore is very personal.

Feel the presence of history in beautiful green surroundings

Castello Monticelli is steeped in history and as a guest here, you will get an experience out of the ordinary. The location on top of a hill in the large valley is one of the pluses, and from the hilltop is a wonderful view that stretches for many kilometers in all directions. The medieval town of Perugia is visible from the castle and the surrounding gardens. 

Monticelli was originally a small medieval town, which dates back to the early 12th century. The owners have with tremendous passion and patience furnished the apartments and rooms in different sizes, so that today it stands as a valuable property with apartments of high standard with all modern facilities. The owners live on the property, and especially Ellen is part of the daily chores. She makes sure that every detail are in order, and she is always available with tips for trips and restaurants. 

There is restaurant on site, and when the weather is nice you can eat outside at one of the many terraces. The restaurant, which is decorated in one of the most prominent parts of the castle, is an experience in itself - with beautiful, vaulted ceilings and a small wine cellar with its own history. The restaurant serves typical Umbrian dishes. The restaurant is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and by appointment.

Behind the restaurant on a plateau with views towards Perugia is a large pavilion with a small kitchen, a bar and comfortable furniture. Here it is possible to have a apéritivo - and sometimes even to the sound of live music.

There are two pools on site (4 x 8 m and 14 x 6.5 m), and one is for the quiet guests, and the other is designed for families with children. There are sun beds available.

In one of the buildings is wellness area with Jacuzzi, sauna, massage beds and a relaxation room.

The oldest parts of the buildings are the four military towers, probably built between the years 595 and 1380 to control the valley southwest of Perugia, the capital of Umbria. The walls of the towers are over a meter thick.

The apartments are all exceptionally spacious and beautifully decorated with rustic furniture, rough brick walls and many original elements. They are placed as follows:

Torre Grande contains apartments Meo da Siena, Cellini, Signorelli, Giotto, Bramante, Perugino, Tiziano and Donatello.

Case Corte contains apartments Mercurio, Minerva, Venere and Giove.

Bosco contains the apartment Diana and two other apartments used for other purposes.

Small Piccola contains apartment Botticello og Leonardo. 

Independent house: Marte. 

All apartments have an area with garden furniture. Furthermore, there is a common terrace with stunning views towards Perugia. Some of the apartments are rented as B & B, and therefore include breakfast.

A common laundry room is available. Below the property in the valley is a large kitchen with a huge selection of seasonal vegetables. It is possible to buy vegetables and fruit from here.

There is a chapel on the property, and it contains some valuable frescoes from the period 1315 - 1319 by the Apostle John and John the Baptist.

Monticelli is the perfect historical setting for a wedding or a larger party.
