Immersed in the green Umbrian countryside, and only a stone’s throw from Perugia, this castle has been called a ‘stone book’, thanks to the presence of a wide variety of ancient fragments set in the walls, belonging to different periods, from the Etruscan period to the Roman age, from the Medieval period to the Renaissance.
One of the numerous inscriptions present in the Castle seems to confirm the tradition that there was a connection to the Order of the Knights Templar.
When you look out from the panoramic terraces, which offer a unique view of Perugia and its valley, you immediately realize how rich the history of this land is and how little, over the centuries, life has changed in this corner of Italy.
Normally the events at Castello Gualtiero are organized so as to take advantage of the numerous panoramic views that this splendid location offers over the city of Perugia. The courtyard inside the gardens is used during the welcome drink and as a magnificent scenic backdrop for the photos.

During the summer, thanks to the large terrace, guests have the possibility of dining while enjoying the surrounding panorama of olive groves, vineyards and, in the background, the skyline of Perugia.
