Sleeping in castles from Umbria to the Po river was once a privilege reserved for the nobility but today anyone can haughtily toss off "I'm going to retire to my rooms," knowing that behind the door is a room fit for a king.

Tabiano Castle in the province of Parma

A superb renovation has transformed the little village on the slopes of Tabiano Castle, in the hills in the province of Parma, into a charming Relais de Charme with the utmost respect for history and environmental sustainability. The ancient rooms once used by peasants and artisans have been transformed into guest rooms and apartments with all modern conveniences. Gardens with roses, lemons, and pomegranates, two swimming pools, a wellness centre in a natural cave as well as a popular restaurant in the former dairy complete the amenities for visitors. https://www.castelloditabiano.com

Relais Borgo Campello

Campello Alto is a small mediaeval village on a hill near Spoleto in Umbria. Visitors can stay in the rooms that belonged to aristocratic families and in monks' cells, which have been given a touch of minimalist design. Those seeking well-being will find an intimate refuge in the private spa which is the perfect place to regenerate and relax. And it is possible to have massages outdoors overlooking the valley. https://www.borgocampello.com/it/

Castel Maurn in San Lorenzo di Sebato, between the Val Pusteria and Val Badia valleys in the province of Bolzano in northern Italy has managed to retain its roots, in an intriguing mix of retro details and contemporary grafts. The suites combine an enchanted atmosphere with modern spaces and attention to detail, and have authentic frescoes and paintings. Breakfast is served in the suites, and a personal chef can be hired for exclusive dining. https://www.maurn.it
