A beautiful village surrounded by silent woods is nestled in a rocky spur that plunges into a salt water pool, skimming over the valley. Borgo di Carpiano is the place where the Umbrian languid and dreamy landscapes and the evocative magic of an ancient medieval castrum meet.
Its story dates back to the X century, when Rovaldo Baldassini, St. Ubaldo’s father and protector of the town of Gubbio, built Castrum Carpiani. Later on, during the XVII century, a little church was annexed to this structure. Nowadays the entire complex is called Borgo di Carpiano. It is an extraordinary refuge for anyone who wants to enjoy the stillness and the beauty of this little piece of heaven, which is a few steps away from Gubbio.
The Borgo is surrounded by centuries-old olive trees and luxuriant woods that dominate an uncontaminated valley, where the languid and slow Ventia stream slots in. The 8 rooms in Borgo di Carpiano are quiet and cosy refuges, where any detail preserves the old traditions and combines with modernity so as to offer a breath-taking atmosphere. This harmonious combination of opposites especially stands out in the wooden ceilings and the refined period furniture that perfectly match with the modern services and comforts.
The hall of the ancient church is the dreamy core of Borgo di Carpiano. Here guests can have a chat, read a book from the rich library, sip a glass of good wine, or go with the flow of a marvellous classical music concert or one of the frequent art exhibitions. Everything is surrounded by precious original frescos, which have been kept after their restoration.
