My husband and i stayed here for a week late June.

The staff were always helpful. Not too many spoke English but were always willing to try to help understand! Took us up to our room and showed us around. Olga, one of the ladies who works there was very helpful all the time. Her English is very limited but she never gave up trying to understand us and was always willing to help. A smile was always plastered on her face.

Breakfasts were to die for every morning. Everything was freshed and just baked and NEVER disappointed. (Only problem was this was the beginning of our trip in Italy and we never found croissants as good as these so we were set up for failure for the rest of the trip! lol). There was a variety of pastries, cereals, cheese, ham, toast, jams and spreads, yoghurts, juices and coffee. Something for everyone.

Our room was cleaned everyday, towels changed everyday. SWe were very happy with this.

There was a gorgeous walk if you go up the 'garden path' past the childrens play equipment and continue up the hill. It took us up high to get great views of the area. It was beautiful. Only thing was the walk was too short, we would have loved it to keep on going.

It was a perfect place to stay for lots of day trips by car to Gubbios centre, Perugia, Baci chocolate factory etc... I would strongly recommend having a car as there's no public transport here though.

We didn't buy dinner here though the wedding we were attending, the reception was held here and the food was AMAZING. So i would say it is well worth spending extra and eating dinner here as well.

The rooms in the castle were quite big. There was a loft with the beds. We were up the top and you could stand on the bed, pop your head through the opening in the roof and watch the sunrise. It was different every morning and a gorgeous way to wake up. The kitchen was more than adequate, bathroom quite large, eating area, couch (not that comfortable). Just perfect for a relaxing holiday. Wouldn't have changed anything about this hotel. The pool was perfect. 2 pools, one large and a smaller one, shade near the pools so you could hop and and sit in the shade or sun.

We loved this place :) Thumbs up!!

Room tip: If you can get a room at the top of the castle the sunrise is spectacular :)

We visited this hotel in May, 2012, and were assigned to one of the detached apartments down a pathway from the main castle building. Pros: The restaurant's food is delicious at all times of day, for all kinds of food, and the house wine includes a Sangiovese! Wonderful! Cons: On the day we arrived, the weather had been rainy on and off for three days, so we tracked some gravel and mud and leaves from the pathway leading from the front desk across the grounds and into the apartment. Day after day we expected the "maid service" to see the disconcerting debris on the tile floors which were everywhere in the unit and to do something about it. On Day 1, there was no maid service at all. Days 2 and 3 the bed was barely made and a few towels were replaced. By Day 4, I couldn't stand the dirt so I mopped it up with a bath towel which was not replaced! So we found a phrase about please bring clean towels in our Italian phrase book, wrote it out, piled the dirty linen by the front door, and it worked! We had fresh linen. (We were told that the cleaning people in the main hotel were better.) The lighting in the unit was very dim, the safe had no key, the telephone did not work until it was replaced on Day 4, there were no instructions on how to operate the TV (we wanted to find out news about the earthquakes), the shelves for clothes were dusty, and the air conditioning worked OK. Except that on Day 4 when the telephone was finally replaced, the air conditioning was turned off with a switch hidden in a control console on the wall. One of our fellow travelers was able to show me how to turn it back on. Our guess is that no one had stayed in this unit maybe since the prior October, and it wasn't properly prepped before our arrival. Franco, the GM, and his staff try very hard, are badly understaffed, yet remain upbeat and eager to try to cooperate. But it is a situation where requests are answered with well-intended replies/promises (like "by 6pm" or "tomorrow" or "yes") when, in fact, it may be impossible for them to be kept. Remember, too, that this facility is very old and requires lots of maintenance that does not seem always be available. During our stay, one guest could not open the front door to their room in the castle's main building, and the only way to get in was to break a window beside the door which Franco and his team did. Lots of patience is required as the waiters in the restaurant are also the front desk people, the repair people, and handle lots of other jobs, too. Yet, you are near Gubbio and Umbria on beautiful, naturally kept grounds.

Room tip: Speak Italian. Ask for Franco and tell him exactly what you want -- perhaps even ask for a room in one of the newer units down by the tennis court and swimming pool, although no one used either one of these facilities during our stay.

Our first visit to Castello Cortevecchio was in 2005. Our second visit mid May, 2012 brought back fond memories. This is a modernized16th century castle..with the ambiance you would expect and some issues you would expect. It is not the Ritz. But the grounds are beautiful, the staff (Franco, Olga, Massimo, Chelo, Lily) are outstanding in every way, & the food at their restaurant is absolutely delicious. The rooms in the castle and the dependencies vary greatly- ask to talk to Franco who is English speaking and be very clear on your wants so they can please you which they really want to do. Bring a translator app as Italian is the first language. Don't expect an American hotel experience but we love that about it. Nearby Gubbio is a lovely hill town. Go with the flow and enjoy a wonderful vacation in the wooded hill of Umbria.

Room tip: Some have kitchens, some have a loft bedroom, some are small, others quite large. Be specific.

It gives one the sensation of being in a forest....really beautiful and wonderful to wake up to the birds singing in the early morning!! The room we had was large, clean and comfortable. We had dinner at the restuarant and the food was lovely as well as the service!! Massimo the waiter was really helpful and kind all the time! I would recommend for couples as well as families with children. There is a lot of space outside for kids and a huge play park for them! There are also 2 pools - one for adults and one for kids ....with a perfect view of the hillsides!! One can go for horseback rides as well! Would love to go back - maybe in winter to see the snow!
