The Castle of Montignano dating back to 962 AD is an original medieval village with a swimming pool park in front overlooking the Martani Mountains. Recently renovated by combining the beauty of the ancient and the refinement of contemporary design, today it houses spacious suites, a SPA with Wellness Center, two restaurant kitchens and several indoor and outdoor reception rooms.
Inside the walls of the Castle happiness is treasured: witness the fact that the structure is among the rare private properties, in Umbria, where the Mayor can celebrate marriages with a civil ceremony. Furthermore, settings of extraordinary emotional value allow the holding, within the village of Montignano, also of religious ceremonies.
Thanks to the many romantic atmospheres, the Montignano Castle is the ideal location for a reception in style:
- in the Pavillon of the olive trees overlooking the Martani hills and the majestic facade of the Castle with a
elegant pool park;
- in the suggestive Stone Rooms characterized by architectures with vaulted ceilings;
- in the Hortus: wonderful Italian garden with rose, hydrangea and lavender plants.
At Castello di Montignano the most genuine tradition finds its ideal home in MATERIAPRIMA Restaurant. The culinary proposals come from a long and skilful work of selection, preparation and presentation of the best local and national raw materials. The chefs promote gourmet cuisine that enhances every consistency, aroma and flavor. From bread to homemade pasta, to local productions, every dish is presented in its sincerity. The best Umbrian and national wineries sign the party toasts.
Castillo Di Montignano is a beautiful little castle set on top of a hill with breathtaking views of the rolling Umbrian countryside.
We were in love with the wedding planner and were amazed.
The very lovely Beatrice (the 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.
On our return visit for the menu tasting, Beatrice once again made us feel very welcome and taken care of
The tasting menu 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 the tasting to answer any question regarding the venue itself. He was very friendly and approachable and insisted that we contact him directly
Overall, the welcome dinner and wedding day were a huge success. Our guests were giving compliments on the whole experience for weeks after the wedding. We can't thank Beatrice, Giuseppe and the whole castle. 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 is 100% the place to book.

Castle of 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 a recommendation in February 2018. The venue itself is idyllic surrounded by rolling Umbrian hills. The Castle 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 stressed and emotionally drained 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 too great nor any request that could not be accommodated. Beatrice has recommended supplier 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. We are brilliant and he and his band (including the blowing section) 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 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 have her and Beatrice to get creative and run with the decorations. The result far exceeded our expectations. The flowers, the table settings and center pieces were magnificent. The candles were magical.
The food prepared by chef, Orlando, is divine and prepared what can only be described as true Umbrian feast for us over the three days. My wife is gluten intolerant in all circumstances, but Orlando is completely understanding and sympathetic as her family members also are coeliac. Orlando produced a gluten free menu from scratch for my wife It really made her day.
The one thing that truly makes Montignano Castle 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 special mention, they were the last men standing looking after guests at the end of the night Beatrice and Guiseppi we can't thank you enough for you.
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
We had our wedding at the Castle 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 organized everyhting because she is so professional and she listens carefully to what we wanted. One word, AMAZING!
