Dating back as far as 1387, La Rocca is an impressive restoration of a mighty 14th century fortress encompassing the original castle battlements, the central courtyard and striking 32m tall medieval tower. The gentle cushioning of the castle walls creates a hushed serenity inside and the exceptional attention to detail infuses a superiority and almost regal atmosphere throughout. Packed with beautiful antiques, paintings and opulent fabrics, all 5 bedrooms have been carefully decorated to enhance the original architectural detail. Various modern amenities, such as high-tech mattresses and Wi-Fi, simply complete the package.
Although ideally placed to explore the numerous pretty villages and artistic gems that Umbria has to offer, you may be reluctant to tear yourself away from the confines of your fairy-tale setting. After a scrumptious breakfast served on the terrace, days can be whiled away in a quiet shaded corner with a good book, flopping in and out of the pool or wandering the streets of the nearby town of Capodacqua di Foligno. By the evening, as the sun disappears behind the castle walls, sit back and settle down with friends and a chilled bottle of prosecco on the pretty terrace, equipped with tables, chairs and hefty terracotta amphoras.
All the bedrooms have air-conditioning, heating, a Plasma screen TV, telephone, hairdryer and minibar.
