If you ever visit Umbria, the green heart of Italy, please do yourself a favor and don’t stay in an ordinary hotel. Stay in a local farmhouse or better yet, stay in a castle. First of all, castles are usually situated in great locations with fantastic views. Second, they are much more intimate. And last but not the least, you don’t get to wake up as a king or a princess every day, right? If you do, please drop me a line and tell me your secret 😉 Castello di Giomici (Giomici castle in English) is a pet friendly retreat that offers perfect getaway from everyday hustle and bustle in the green oasis of Umbria.
