Castle of Procopio
With its ancient and dominant spirit, its allure, its uniqueness, this fully restored castle represents a new idea of grandiose luxury, a terrific mixture of classic architecture and contemporary, edgy design: Procopio is possibly the boldest restoration ever attempted in Umbria, commenced in the mid 1980's and finished in 2012, and the results are just outstanding. Originally a military-defence castle and in a totally ruined state it had to go under major structural work, under architect Corrado Giannini, while interiors have been curated by Martyn Lawrence Bullard. The honey-stone castle offers today eight grand bedrooms all with en-suite tailor-made bathrooms, a professional kitchen designed with the help of a chef, a fitness area and a private room for massages and wellness.
