(Historical Residences) Castel San Giovanni
Where time stands still and dreams come true
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- A taste of life in the ancient hamlet of Castel S. Giovanni
- Sleeping within the medieval walls of a castle in Umbria
- An unforgettable candlelit dinner in the watchtower
The history of the period residence Torre della Botonta is the history of Castel S. Giovanni: a meticulously restored 14th century fortified hamlet, nestled right in the very heart of Umbria.
A journey back in time
From the moment guests pass through the castle's entrance gates, they are greeted by an atmosphere of centuries past. Within the stone walls of Castel S. Giovanni, time seems to have stood still since the era when the outpost was contested between nearby Trevi, Spoleto and the Church.
Today three of the buildings within the castle's fortified walls have been converted so as to provide beautiful guest accommodation.
Where dreams come true
Torre della Botonta has a total of just four bedrooms and one, two-bedroom suite, all of which feature original terracotta floor tiles and vaulted ceilings.
Upholstery and drapes made by local artisans using natural fibers such as hemp, linen, silk and jute combine perfectly with valuable items of antique furniture and carefully chosen hotel-standard accessories.
The unmistakable flavors of Umbria
A little corner of paradise for lovers of the region's traditional, flavor-packed cuisine, the "Grotta della Torre" restaurant serves superb seasonal dishes, made with the area's truffles, mushrooms, game meat and, in the autumn, the fabulous black celery of Trevi.
In the tallest of the castle's five towers there is a library and a room in which unforgettable candlelit dinners are served
The delicious food is just one of the reasons why Torre della Botonta is such a highly requested venue for banquets and wedding receptions. Those wishing to tie the knot at the castle, can do so in the site's pretty little church.
