Castello di Baccaresca sits within 250 hectares of countryside in a picturesque valley in the Umbria region of Italy. With a history that dates back to the 12th century, the castle is now an elegant retreat with an outdoor swimming pool.
Situated on a hillside and surrounded by thick forest, the property offers impressive views of the Italian countryside from every angle. Castello di Baccaresca has a wellness centre, including a sauna, a salt room, a Turkish bath and more (supplements apply). The Locanda del Castello di Baccaresca restaurant is housed in medieval stables within the castle grounds, and serves a range of traditional, handmade dishes prepared using locally sourced ingredients.
Each of the hotel's 29 bedrooms is uniquely decorated and furnished, and all rooms have free Wi-Fi and air conditioning.
Umbria "has kept alive many of Italy's old-world traditions", says Lonely Planet -- "you'll see grandmothers in aprons making pasta by hand and front doors that haven't been locked in a century". Be sure to try some of the region's specialities while you're here, such as black truffles, pecorino di Norcia cheese and prosciutto di Norcia, a dry-cured ham aged in the Umbrian mountains. Local wines are also a highlight, and you'll get a tasting of these included.
From the hotel, we recommend visiting Lago Trasimeno (around an hour's drive away), where you can take a boat trip to Isola Maggiore, and Cascata delle Marmore, a 165-metre-high waterfall created by the ancient Romans (around 75 minutes' drive from the hotel). Assisi, Gubbio and Perugia -- picturesque hilltop cities with many historic churches and houses -- are all within 40 minutes' drive of the hotel.
