Originally a military-defence castle in the 1980s the majestic premises of this Castello were close to ruin. Major structural work, under the visionary care of architect Corrado Giannini and interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard commenced at the time, coming to an end only in 2012.
The results are simply outstanding: its ancient imposing presence spirit, allure and uniqueness are now enhanced by a new idea of grandiose luxury, an inspiring blend of classic architecture and contemporary design.
This majestic honey-stone castle, possibly the boldest restoration ever attempted in Umbria, today offers eight grand bedrooms all with en-suite tailor-made bathrooms, a professional kitchen designed with the help of a chef, a fitness area and a private room for massages and wellness and a private wine cellar with adjacent dining room
Each detail and facility has been carefully crafted to bring luxury and comfort and provide a privileged Italian experience. The interiors feature precious drapes and tapestries, artwork, exquisite furnishings in a seamless blend of contemporary lifestyle standards (including modern plumbing and state-of-the-art appliances) and an evocative atmosphere rich in precious typical elements of the local Umbrian style heritage.
Set in a gloriously dominant position the castle boasts sweeping 360° views over the fertile valleys bellow and, needless to say the grounds are astounding. 5 hectares of finely groomed private land house splendid specimens of local plants, aromatic herbs and flowers, a heated swimming pool surrounded by lavender and other herbs and a variety of alfresco dining and relaxing areas.
Located in the vicinity of jewel-like Perugia, one of Italy’s most elegant and charming cities filled with history, art masterpieces, splendid boutiques and unforgettable restaurants, Castello Procopio provides a king-like Italian experience.
