Castello di Gaiche, is a 13th century castle - in fact the oldest surviving castle in Umbria. So come and stay in a little slice of Italian history. Perfect location for a romantic holiday, vineyards, medieval hill towns, hand made shoe, wine and Italian food... perfecto!

Apartment La Quercia, (The Oak) has recently undergone a complete redecoration incorporating an Italian OIKOS designer kitchen with full oven and hob. New furnishings include a luxury king sized bed plus a sofa bed, allowing up to four people to sleep really comfortably. The apartment comes with fresh bed linen and clean towels (a small charge will be made should you require a change of linen or towels during your stay).

The apartment overlooks the central courtyard on one side with its ancient well still providing the castle's water supply. A view of the formal gardens which have a small vine covered gazebo can be enjoyed from the bedroom window, or you can just relax in the garden, sip a glass of crisp Umbrian wine or lay back in the hammock with a good book. There are beautiful views of the valley below and the medieval hill town of Castiglion Fosco.

There is one double bedroom, a fitted bathroom with shower and bidet, luxury designer kitchen with all the basic essentials – pans, plates, cutlery, glasses and so on. A large lounge/dining room with table, chairs, double sofa bed, armchair and an open fire place. Adjoining the castle is it's own, 17m pool with loungers for guests use as well as showers and bathroom beneath.

If you are there during winter the apartment is fully centrally heated, in addition there is a real fire in the lounge to keep you cosy and romantic.

The Umbria region

Situated in the Umbrian countryside, Castello di Gaiche provides easy access for day trips to Sienna, Assisi, Orvieto, Perugia and Gubbio.

Umbria is know as the green heart of Italy, beautiful mountains, olive groves and oak forests cover the hillsides which are dotted with Medieval hill towns, one of which can be seen from the garden at Gaiche.


There are several small local towns nearby - Tavernelle has a market on Mondays and has banks, cafes and local shops including a pharmacy and post office.

Drive a little further to Castiglione del Lago and you can enjoy a beautiful hill town on Lake Trasimeno- plenty of places to eat, drink and also the best local produce market on Wednesday mornings. Get there early if you can and have a coffee in the main street.

The local vineyard at Montevibbiano is also worth a visit, wine tastings and a tour of their vineyard makes a wonderful evening before heading into Perugia for dinner.
