CASTELLO DI PETRATA
Castello di Petrata is an ancient 14th century fortress, close to Assisi, restored by our family after 50 years of abandonment: 20 rooms, an excellent restaurant and a SPA complete the welcome of those waiting for you at home to pass time in contact with nature, respecting its times, the environment and the earth. Around the Castello di Petrata, for 50 hectares, the farm that cultivates the land and raises animals for internal use of the restaurant of the Castle and for sale to those who want to taste the authenticity of this region even at home, extends. The olive groves, the truffle ground, the orchards, the vegetable garden and a pig farm in the wild allow us to offer you the best that Umbria can offer, while respecting the environment.
Two hectares of oak forest where our pigs are raised in the wild. Antibiotic treatments are not carried out, the tail is not cut and a different philosophy is adopted also as regards the castration of the males, which is preferred to avoid in order not to weaken, than living wild and exposed to predators (wolves and foxes), they must be able to better resist bad weather and to defend themselves and the pack against possible attacks.
Three olive grove plants (about 1500 plants), of different eras and of different types, which allow the production of an excellent Multicultivar Extra Virgin Olive Oil (moraiolo 70%, mill 15%, leccino 15%).
Castello di Petrata is a place that offers hospitality with 20 rooms, an excellent restaurant and a SPA. We want to give you the opportunity to be able or even to give you one of our experiences.
Working in agriculture educates us to a strong sense of social responsibility, which commits us to respect the rules, to control the product, and in particular to safeguard the natural environment in which our activities are inserted. The natural environment that hosts us calls us to a particular responsibility that commits us to the local community and institutions. Chemical fertilizers are not used in the soil, only the manure of the animals themselves help the soil fertility and in the farms antibiotics are not used.
