We were visiting Assisi and were told recently of guests experiencing loud music until 3:30 am in town so we opted for the Castello. Beautiful grounds, very helpful staff, knowledgeable sommelier but they do cater for events so it can be quite noisy. If you...More
Castello di Petrara is a great hotel. The place is meticulously kept both inside and outside.
We were unfortunate with the weather, the first week of May was not too warm and quite rainy. Hence, we did not spent time in the beautiful garden or...More
After some magnificent and energetic days in Rome, we had some rest in this cozy and beautiful castle. It really felt like a little piece of heaven on earth. The location is so remote and calm, on the top of a hill. And yes, the...More

My husband and I are staying here now. It is absolutely not true that you can easily walk to Assisi from here. If you tried in the current temperature which is 40 degrees it would take you AGES and you would be severely dehydrated.
By car the drive is about 15 minutes .
It may take an hour or two to walk to the base of the hill where Assisi starts but then you are still nowhere near the centre which is a long way up hill .
Sorry to put a dampener on your holiday but in August I do not recommend walking. The castello is kind of in the middle of nowhere which is why it is so called... it was a fortress in medieval times to look out for enemies invading Assisi. You can see Assisi from the castello but it is a long way and no pedestrian paths.
Hire a car.
