Palazzo Scagliae is a XIII Century listed Castle situated at the summit of a beautiful and peaceful 12 acre private estate in the locality of Pisciano, Gubbio. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery and with stunning views of Gubbio and its valley, we are delighted to offer you our private residence which has been lovingly restored using traditional methods and materials over more than 30 years, and furnished with antiques and period pieces from our collection.

Palazzo Scaglia is currently arranged to sleep 8 guests over 3 floors. It has 3 double bedrooms, a twin room, a double sofa bed and a single sofa bed. There are 5 bathrooms with 4 showers, 2 living/lounge rooms with TVs, rustic kitchen, a dining room with antique furniture, former stable rooms with vaulted ceiling, milling room, and a sun terrace with 8 person jacuzzi hot tub. The Palazzo is furnished with many period antiques and art work. Additional beds can be installed in the lower floors upon request, and a baby cot is available for no extra cost

Set on the top of mountain, at nearly 900mt above sea level, Palazzo Scagliae dominates the surrounding valleys and hill tops and gives unparalleled views of Gubbio and the plush Umbrian countryside. Gubbio is only 12km away with the small village of Mocaiana 2.5km away.

You will be staying in the XIII Castle which has been carefully restored by us and updated to provide you with all modern conveniences. Having been a 'Palazzo-Fortilizzo', you will at once notice the imposing and impressive stone structure, with walls that can reach thicknesses of over 3mts in some places.

Location:

The medieval town of Gubbio and its surrounding areas offer a combination of tranquility, history, culture and, importantly, a slice of true Italian life. Should you tire of the views at Palazzo Scagliae, you can wonder around the extensive private estate or surrounding hills and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and local wildlife. If you want to relax and take in the scenery, why not have a drink in the 3x3mt hot tub, or just chill and sunbathe in total privacy on the 20mt stone terrace.?

Despite being less than 20 minutes (12km) from the center of Gubbio, Palazzo Scagliae is exceptionally peaceful, situated on top of the mountain with dominating and undisturbed views over unspoilt, valleys, hills and countryside. The main access road to Palazzo Scagliae is tarmac and consequently the property is easily accessible by car throughout the year.

Perugia, Assisi, Urbino, Siena, Todi, Spoleto, Rome and Florence are all within reach for day visits, and you can visit the lovely beaches of the Adriatic coast in a little over an hour.

The main access road to Palazzo Scagliae is tarmac and consequently the property is easily accessible by car throughout the year.

Gubbio

How to get there:

The nearest airport is Perugia (45 minutes drive) yet Ancona, Rimini and Bologna, are all serviced by low cost airlines such as Ryanair and about one and a half to two hours drive away. Pisa airport is also an option being just over two hours drive away. Of course you can fly into Rome or Florence with many airlines, and the drive will take between 2.5-3 hours. A hire car is essential.

Parking:

Once you have arrived at Palazzo Scagliae, you can park on the grounds in the designated area in front of the main building, or in our lockable underground garage. For wedding receptions and events, there is ample parking space for guests along the rear access road and retaining wall.

Distances from Gubbio, Perugia and Assisi:

Gubbio, one of the most atmospheric and important medieval towns in Italy is 20 minutes away (12km). It is considered one of the jewels of Umbria as well as being its oldest village. It is rich in artistic heritage and offers many tourist attractions well worth visiting such as the Palazzo dei Consoli and its museum, Palazzo Ducale, Roman Amphitheater, the Cathedral and Basilica of S. Ubaldo. You can find all sorts of shops, shopping centers, grocery stores, banks, restaurants and activities. Naturally, it is also the home of the world famous Festa dei Ceri held on the 15 May of each year. Everyone has heard of St Francis of Assisi and the Basilica there has wonderful 13th century frescoes by Giotto (1hr drive); while Perugia (45 mins) has great museums and Renaissance buildings and the world famous Umbria Jazz Festival in July.

Typical Food Products and Restaurants

A visit to Umbria would not be complete without having sampled some of its typical products and food. Gubbio is renowed for its truffles, both white and black, and is home to an important national truffle fair in autumn. If you are looking for a great place to eat, we highly recommend our friends at Federico da Montefeltro.

Coast, Beaches and Lakes

The lovely beaches of the Adriatic coast can be reached in a little over an hour's drive from Palazzo Scagliae. The golden beaches of Rimini and Riccione are readily accesible and are perfect for taking in some sun and sea. Lago Trasimeno, the largest lake of the Italian peninsular, is a 45 minute drive.

Accessibility

Palazzo Scagliae is not wheelchair accessible, as all levels have at least 2 or 3 steps as well as internal staircases.
