Standard Double Room


"I really enjoyed Castello di Petroia. Huge, comfortable accommodation. Good food in interesting, historical surroundings. The weather, as you know, was hot, so thank goodness for the roof terrace. Lots of space to spread out, terrific views in shade with a gentle breeze.  Charles' tutoring was, as expected, most useful/helpful. The trips out were good". Rober Christopher July 2017

After a wonderful buffet breakfast, painting tuition will take place on the spectacular covered Castle roof terrace which has incredible views in every direction of the surrounding Umbrian hills.  There are so many wonderful painting locations in and around the castle.  Lunch will be served each day on terrace of the Castle.  After lunch guests are free to continue painting, have a siesta, swim, or take one of the several marked walks around the estate.  There will be excursions on two afternoons during the week.  On one afternoon guests will be taken to Gubbio which is a town clambering up the side of the mountain.  It has many interesting shops, churches and museums.  There will be an excursion to Urbino, the home of the Count of Montefelcro, who was born in the castle.  The museum in Urbino houses famous works of art by Pierro della Francesca such as "Citta Ideale" and "The Flagellation".   Urbino is also the birthplace of Raffaello and his birthplace has been restored as a museum "Casa di Raffaello".  Guests have the option to visit the Perugia Jazz Festival.  Tickets to the Arena will be available.  On Friday evening there is a special dinner in the hotel following which  Astronomy experts (speaking English) will introduce guests to the “knowledge of the sky” and have telescopes that will show guests the wonders of outer space from the full moon to the Saturn rings, the milky way and galaxies millions of light years from us.
