Petrata Castle

Castello di Petrata is located in Assisi, in the province of Perugia. It is a luxurious, yet rustic, Relais with a wellness centre. The view is breathtaking, as the castle stands on a hillside area that allows you to see the valley below.

The structure dates back to 1340, i.e. to the Middle Ages. It is located in a very important place in Assisi, along the Franciscan path that connected the town to Gubbio.

Surrounding this enchanting place is a private park of 50 hectares where any visitor or married couple can enjoy a walk surrounded by nature.

The castle has been completely renovated to become a perfect accommodation for anyone who wants to enjoy a few days in nature and in contact with history. There are in fact several rooms, including suites and standard, for every need.

Visitors can also enjoy an exclusive SPA with wellness centre to savour all the relaxation this place has to offer.

Petrata Castle, however, is also an agritourism and an estate full of activities for the whole family. Its large spaces are perfect for organising events such as weddings. The staff know how to organise the best receptions ever, thanks to the ample buffet with local specialities and versatile spaces. The Relais has both an indoor reception room and a garden that can be equipped to accommodate a large number of guests. In fine weather, celebrating outdoors is the best option.

For a rustic wedding in contact with nature, Castello di Petrata is ideal.

Rosciano Castle

Castello di Rosciano hosts numerous wedding receptions every year. The beauty of this place is that it is one of the few private structures in Umbria that is authorised to hold legally valid civil weddings.ย 

So there is no need to choose one location for the ceremony and one for the reception. The magic can all take place in the same place at Castello di Rosciano!

You can choose whether to have your wedding on the large lawn balcony between the courtyard and the panoramic terrace or in the Benedictine church overlooking the castle courtyard. Either way, the choice will be a good one, as both locations are truly breathtaking.

Castello di Rosciano also offers a wide choice for celebrations. The reception can be held indoors or outdoors, depending on the season. The beauty of these historic medieval structures is that they are cool in summer and warm in winter, so guests always feel at ease.

The outdoor area, on the other hand, dominates the valley and thus offers a breathtaking view. A special feature of Castello di Rosciano is its piazzetta, an exclusive space reminiscent of Italy's most beautiful medieval villages. Receptions reminiscent of parties in the piazza can be organised here, surrounded by walls with exposed bricks and stars overhead.

The castle of Rosciano, formerly called Russanum, is located in the hamlet of Signoria in the municipality of Torgiano, in the province of Perugia. If you are looking for an original and historic location in Umbria for your wedding, this is the best choice!

Tenuta San Lorenzo Vecchio is located a few kilometres from Foligno, in the province of Perugia. This historic and elegant property is immersed in the beautiful natural landscape of Umbria.

The relaxed atmosphere, large spaces and carefully furnished interiors make this the perfect location to celebrate a wedding. The Tenuta San Lorenzo Vecchio has a small chapel where you can celebrate the civil ceremony. You won't need to come here just for the reception! It is also possible to say the fateful "I do" in a more relaxed setting or in contact with nature.
