This magnificent property enjoys a spectacular location, set in a carefully restored Benedictine abbey, originally founded in the eighth century. Standing in the heart of the Umbrian countryside near the village of Umbriano, this charming castle offers luxurious accommodation and fine dining in an incomparable setting. Castle San Pietro has a fine restaurant, the Hora Media, recalling the Benedictine origins of this beautiful abbey. The restaurant serves delicious menus based on the finest seasonal produce and authentic regional cuisine. Breakfast is of course served in the refectory, and includes a rich variety of typical Umbrian salami and cheese, freshly baked bread and pastries, home-made marmalade and much more. Guests can also take advantage of the spa and wellness centre, featuring a Finnish sauna, a hydro-massage pool and a range of treatments.
