The magnificent Giomici Castle dates back to the 11th century and is located in the heart of Umbria, between Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio. Recently the castle has been completely restored, becoming a cosy hotel, where peace and hospitality come together and reign supreme. From the tower you have a breathtaking views of the entire property. Giomici Castle covers 160 hectares of land with vineyards, olive groves, oak forests, and also some natural lakes. As one of our guests, you can enjoy long walks along the many paths in the naturalness of shady woodlands, where truffles grow. If you prefer you can refresh in the castle's pool, go fishing in one of our lakes or even enjoy some horseback riding. Beautiful and famous cities such as Assisi, Gubbio and Perugia are less than 30 minutes away from the castle, whereas Orvieto, Spoleto and Todi are no more than an hour's away from Giomici. Giomici Castle is the ideal destination for a romantic or family getaway, ideal for visiting many of the most beautiful cities of Umbria and to celebrate special events, including anniversaries, weddings and business functions. We look forward to welcoming you to the castle. See you soon!
The rooms have been renovated with the utmost care and wherever possible we have preserved the castle's original design by using original materials and fittings. All rooms have lovely views of the surrounding hills and the Apennines Mountains, making Giomici Castle the perfect place to relax within a charming atmosphere of tranquillity of past times.

You can stay in one of the double, triple or family. Each room has a luxurious bathroom with shower or bath, hairdryer, heating and television.

Umbria is often referred to as the 'green heart of Italy'. More sheltered by external influences than other Italian regions, it has thankfully retained many of its traditions and flavors of the past.
Umbria is a wonderful region, with hills, forests, streams, valleys and a vast historicala and artistic heritage. It is still relatively unspoilt and not overwhelmed by mass tourism.
Giomici Castle provides an excellent base from where to discover the region. Guests often opt for a day visit to Perugia, the region's capital, and Assisi, with its extraordinary frescoes by Giotto which are located in the Basilica of San Francesco. Another favourite is the ancient city of Orvieto, where you can find one of Italy's largest cathedrals which is one of the largest Gothic buildings in the country. Other destinations not far away are lesser-known, such as the beautiful hill town of Todi, or Gubbio, with one of the best medieval centres in Italy, or Spoleto, considered by many to be the most impressive of Umbrian towns. Also we should not forget Trasimeno Lake, the largest lake in central Italy and it offers some excellent leisure and water sports opportunities. Of course there is the Marmore's Falls, Roman built water falls which are located in a natural setting of incomparable beauty.
Several of Italy's famous tourist destinations are within a two-hour drive, including Rome, Siena, Arezzo and Florence.
Therefore, choosing Giomici Castle as a base, gives our guests the opportunity to visit some amazingly wonderful places and the time spent here will always seem too short!
