Castello di Petrata, Assisi, Umbria

The setting is really beautiful - I hadn't quite appreciated how beautiful the surroundings and the hotel's grounds were until we arrived.

rriving at Castello di Petrata is indeed reward in itself. Reserved exclusively for our guided eBike Safaris, this place is special, very special. Which is why you get two nights here.

9 km from Assisi, the Castello Di Petrata has a spa and a restaurant serving Umbrian cuisine. But it is the setting that is the true delight. This is night 4 & 5 on the Our Umbria eBike Safari itinerary.

The site dates from 1340, and was originally fortress. The rustic finish such as the exposed brick, natural stone, wood-beamed ceilings really do add to the silence.

Twenty cozy guest bedrooms and suites come with free Wi-Fi. The breakfast buffet is set in a cave. In the evening it becomes the restaurant and wine cellar.

Other amenities include a sauna, a hot tub and a steam bath, plus a spa and outdoor pool.
