The Palazzo is furnished with many period antiques and art work. Additional beds can be installed in the lower floors upon request, and a baby cot is available for no extra cost. Unlike other holiday villas in Umbria, you will have exclusive and sole use of the entire Palazzo when you book with us!
Set on the top of mountain, at nearly 900mt above sea level, Palazzo Scagliae dominates the surrounding valleys and hill tops and gives unparalleled views of Gubbio and the plush Umbrian countryside.
On the 12 acre grounds of Palazzo Scaglia, you will find many amenities and facilities. We offer a large sun terrace with outdoor furniture such as tables, recliners, umbrellas and chairs, and a large 3x3mt hot tub which can accommodate up to 10 people.
There is a large stone pizza oven that you can use, as well as a cool underground secure car park. If you wonder around the grounds, you will come across many varieties of trees and flowers, and bump into frogs and dragon flies around the pond. There is also the old original stone well towards the bottom of the grounds.
The medieval town of Gubbio and its surrounding areas offer a combination of tranquility, history, culture and, importantly, a slice of true Italian life. Should you tire of the views at Palazzo Scagliae, you can wonder around the extensive private estate or surrounding hills and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and local wildlife. If you want to relax and take in the scenery, why not have a drink in the 3x3mt hot tub, or just chill and sunbathe in total privacy on the 20mt stone terrace.
Despite being less than 20 minutes (12km) from the center of Gubbio, Palazzo Scagliae is exceptionally peaceful, situated on top of the mountain with dominating and undisturbed views over unspoilt, valleys, hills and countryside. The main access road to Palazzo Scagliae is tarmac and consequently the property is easily accessible by car throughout the year.
