Overview

A luxe, historic castle hotel near Rome, with breakfast, a welcome drink, an optional dinner and more

The Lowdown

Castello Della Castelluccia is a former castle, situated outside Italy’s cultured capital, in the stunning Parco di Veio. The majestic TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, dating back to the 10th century, is set among beautiful, private landscaped gardens, with fountains, colorful flora and a semi-Olympic outdoor swimming pool. Terracotta-floored terraces hold mosaic wrought-iron tables brimming with flowers. You’ll find peace amid the lush green hillside, even though Rome’s captivating sights and famous landmarks are only a short train or car ride away.
This picture of beauty extends indoors, where attention to detail is found at every turn. There’s a spectacular medieval restaurant drenched in royal blues and golds, plus an atmospheric spa where you can luxuriate like the Romans of yore. Sunlight floods in through stained-glass windows, and interiors hold plenty of rich colors, luxurious fabrics and bold touches, like original seating, candelabras, statuettes and giant vases. And, of course, it wouldn’t be Italy without exceptional vino. The extensive wine cellar covers this base, and then some.

Rooms

Exquisite Deluxe rooms combine the castle’s magical allure and medieval ambience with the modern comforts you’d expect from a four-star hotel. Ornate and elegantly styled in rich colors, tactile fabrics and parquet or terracotta floors, the rooms feature dark-wood beamed ceilings and antiquarian furniture. Classic rooms are more spacious than Deluxe rooms.

Dining

Castello Della Castelluccia’s breakfast is a generous buffet selection of fresh fruits, cheeses, ham and breads. The glorious à la carte menu at the Castle’s Locanda (inn) showcases traditional Italian cuisine and fresh, seasonal dishes, for which the perfect accompanying bottle of wine will be recommended. The hotel serves regional and Umbrian-influenced food throughout the day; come evening, a reservation is necessary.

Spa

Discover well-being within castle walls, through quality products and classic personalized treatments. The atmospheric spa comes complete with sculptures and pillared archways and offers a unique wellness experience. There’s a relaxation room with two chaise lounges, plus two Jacuzzis, a Turkish bath and a treatment room for massages (including options for couples).

Location

Castello Della Castelluccia is situated in a quiet setting, but is just under two miles from the ring road, which offers access to Rome. The metro is just over a mile away. The hotel also offers a complimentary shuttle to/from Giustiniana Train Station (operated on request, at set times). These transport links make visits to the Colosseum, Pantheon and other sights a breeze.

We were in Rome for a family Wedding and let me tell you, they couldn’t have found a better place to celebrate!! We spent 3 nights there and felt just like Royalty! The front staff were amazing! Very friendly and made us feel very welcomed! The property is so beautiful you could walk for hours! The working ranch just adds the perfect touch! The views are breathtaking!!! For a quiet get away from reality this is the place to go!! Would definately go again!!

Wonderful Stay

On our honeymoon we stayed here while visiting Rome. So happy for many different reasons. The service was spectacular, food was delicious & it was nice being out of the city in such a serene setting. Highly recommend!

Nothing but praises and more praises!! All communication via email with Federica who answered promptly, friendly and thoroughly each time with all of our questions. The hotel itself, restaurant, surroundings, food, and service was beyond excellent. Indika was in charge of the dinner and was such a pleasure. We were in awe of the service, following up after each course to ensure we were happy with virtually each bite, but in a good way ;). The waiters were extremely professional, friendly and even humorous. The people at the front desk were also beyond helpful and friendly, basically everyone we came in contact with. They had special meals for the 3 children. There was a much bigger wedding party right after us, but we didn't notice by the service we received. It was clear they could provide pretty much anything we could have asked for, different flowers, cake etc.
Location is simply gorgeous for wedding pictures so plan for that! Easy to get to there by car. Wedding was in the Rome LDS temple and the hotel was a really good location from there, about a 20 min drive. After returning home a week later, we are still overwhelmed by the experience provided.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of the staff for improving upon our already wonderful day of celebration. Magical memories all around. As you can tell, we can highly recommend Castello della Castelluccia. I don't know how you could go wrong with them. Can't imagine a better place to celebrate a wedding...seriously."
