Il Castello di Montignano risalente al 962 d.C. è un originale borgo medievale con parco piscina antistante che affaccia sui Monti Martani. Recentemente ristrutturato miscelando la bellezza dell'antico e la raffinatezza del design contemporaneo, oggi ospita delle spaziose Suite, una SPA con Centro Benessere, due cucine ristorante e diverse sale interne ed esterne per i ricevimenti.
Dentro le mura del Castello si fa tesoro della felicità: testimone il fatto che la struttura è tra le rare proprietà private, in Umbria, dove il Sindaco può celebrare matrimoni con rito civile. Inoltre, ambientazioni di straordinaria valenza emozionale permettono lo svolgimento, all’interno del borgo di Montignano, anche di cerimonie religiose.
Complici le tante atmosfere romantiche, il Castello di Montignano è la location ideale per un ricevimento in grande stile:
- nel Pavillon degli ulivi affacciato sui colli Martani e sulla maestosa facciata del Castello con un
elegante parco piscina;
- nelle suggestive Sale in Pietra caratterizzate da architetture con soffitti a volta;
- nell'Hortus: mirabile giardino all'italiana con piante di rose, ortensie e lavanda.
Al Castello di Montignano la tradizione più genuina trova la sua dimora ideale in MATERIAPRIMA Restaurant. Le proposte culinarie nascono da un lungo e sapiente lavoro di selezione, preparazione e presentazione delle migliori materie prime locali e nazionali. Gli chef promuovono una cucina gourmet che impreziosisce ogni consistenza, profumo e sapore. Dal pane alla pasta fatta in casa, fino alle produzioni locali, ogni piatto si presenta nella sua sincerità. Le migliori cantine umbre e nazionali firmano i brindisi della festa.
Castillo Di Montignano is a beautiful little castle set on top a hill with breathtaking views of the rolling Umbrian countryside.
We discovered the castle through our wedding planner and were amazed from the very moment we drove up to the car park.
The very lovely Beatrice (the castles Events Coordinator) gave us a tour of the castle. The location ticked every box we were looking for. From the peaceful rolling hills of the Italian countryside to the majestic but intimate settings of the castle gardens. Beatrice was very informative and helped us paint a clear picture of what every area of the castle could be used for.
On our return visit for the menu tasting, Beatrice once again made us feel very welcome and taken care of, even though she had a large group of other couples to attend to.
The menu tasting itself was full of great dishes and wines to choose from. The waiting staff were very attentive and were able to answer all of our questions regarding dietary needs.
Giuseppe (The castle owner) was around during the tasting to answer any question regarding the venue itself. He was very friendly and approachable and insisted that we contact him directly if we had any technical questions, which was very reassuring.
Overall, the welcome dinner and wedding day were a huge success. Our guests were giving us compliments on the whole experience for weeks after the wedding. We can’t thank Beatrice, Giuseppe and the whole castle team enough for being so accommodating to all of our requests, making us and our guests feel so welcome and helping us create unforgettable memories. We will definitely be returning to Catello de Montignano again for our anniversary in the future.
If you are planning a wedding or a romantic weekend away, this 100% the place to book.

Castello di Montignano is a picturesque and magical place. We held our three day wedding at the venue in May and it was the best three days of our lives. We first visited the castle on the recommendation of a friend in February 2018. We fell in love with this magnificent venue and village immediately (despite the fact that we brought the Irish weather with us). The venue itself is idyllic surrounded by rolling Umbrian hills. The Castello has been restored impeccably by Giuseppe and our guests were in awe at the castle. It really and truly is a special place.
Planning a wedding abroad can be stressful and emotionally draining but not if you have Beatrice, Selena and the team guiding you every step of the way. A very special mention must go to Beatrice, she is incredible and made everything so straight forward and easy. From the moment we met Beatrice we knew we were in safe hands. There was never any wish that was ever too great nor any request that couldn’t be accomodated. Beatrice has recommended supplier lists for all your wedding needs. For music, we chose Gabriel Canelles and his band, The Blenders. Gabriel coordinated all the music for our wedding day. He is fantastic and he and his band (including the blowing section) we’re brilliant. Seeing as we are big fans of The Killers, they even went out of their way to learn Mr. Brightside which was a brilliant surprise. We picked Andrea Dambrosia and his team as our photographer and videographer and we are delighted with the photos and video. The guys captured every moment and we love how natural our pictures turned out. We definitely would recommend getting the drone, the aerial shots are magnificent! Mariana and her decorative team brought all of my wife’s ideas to life. Mariana is super, she offers creative ideas and recommendations and we were so happy to let her and Beatrice to get creative and run with the decorations. The result far exceeded our expectations. The flowers, the table settings and centre pieces were magnificent. The hanging candles and flowers of the top table were magical.
The food prepared by chef, Orlando, is divine and he prepared what can only be described as a true Umbrian feast for us over the three days. My wife is gluten intolerant which in most circumstances can be restrictive, but Orlando was completely understanding and sympathetic as his family members also are coeliac. Orlando produced a gluten free menu from scratch for my wife ensuring that she enjoyed a true Italian meal. It really made her day.
The one thing that truly makes Castello di Montignano special is the people. Every member of staff makes you feel at home and treats you like a king and queen. Marco and Simone must get a special mention, they were the last men standing looking after guests at the end of the night and the first ones there in the morning, always lending a helping hand. Beatrice and Guiseppi we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us over the 16 months lead into our wedding.
We couldn’t recommend Castello di Montignano more. The food is exceptional, the floristry team are fantastic and the staff treat you like family. Thank you to Beatrice in particular for creating such a special experience for us and our guests. Choosing Castello di Montignano for our wedding venue was the best decision we’ve ever made and we would love to do it all over again!
We had our wedding at the Castello in June and it was absolutely amazing! The food was great, the venue is stunning and the staff is so friendly. Big thanks to Beatrice who organised everyhting because she is so professional and she listens carefully to what we wanted. One word, AMAZING!
