If you ever dreamed of staying in a medieval castle on the hill, you don't have to dream any longer, because .... now you can. Palazzo Scagliae is amazing and it's very difficult for the images to actually do it justice. It is even better when you see it and stay there for yourself. The owners Andreina and Nello are two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet. Their passion for a project that has taken them over 35 years to bring the Palazzo to the condition it is today is evident in their enthusiasm for the building and the attention to detail in which they have restored it. They met us and took us round personally explaining everything we needed to know for a comfortable vacation and at our request even educated us on more of the history of the building and surrounding area.
It is a perfect location for Gubbio and the surrounding area in your own special grounds but minutes from the main road via tarmac, not rubble as you often get in this region. Perugia airport is only 45 mins away by car. Ideal for a family, especially if you are dog lovers and missing your own pets whilst away as you are visited almost on a daily basis by the most friendliest dog you could ever wish to meet. Sometimes she comes for a stroke and sometimes for a light dog snack! but mainly just to be with you whilst you while away the hours at the Palazzo. She then wanders off back home and doesn't bother you. There are a couple of other local dogs also who visit on a regular basis in the evening but all are very friendly and great with children. The views are spectacular and the seclusion and privacy of having a castle that can sleep at least 8 is very special. It is secure with electric gates and its own private grounds. We don't really want to recommend this special place to anyone because we want to keep it for ourselves but it would be a shame for others not to enjoy the building and location. Plenty of bathrooms, beds, space inside and out, pizza oven, bbq, hot tub, the list goes on. To have the whole Palazzo to yourself is fantastic and we can only recommend it very highly. We will be going back, sooner rather than later !
Thank you Andreina and Nello..two special people.
