La Petronilla is the brainchild of Francesco who, together with his father Dino and mother Elda, decided to renovate the historic childhood home of his grandmother, Petronilla Federici.

The family’s love for this place allowed them to dedicate the utmost attention to every little detail, restoring the building to its former glory of a distant past. It is said that La Petronilla was actually the residence of counts, marquises and bishops, as evidenced by the hand-painted ceilings, the papal effigy that recalls three different families and the presence of a holy water font. Exposed wooden beams, rustic period furniture and original wrought iron beds, carefully restored by the hands of Dino, help to recreate the structural harmony of the building.

La Petronilla is built into the ancient walls of the small medieval village of Montepetriolo. From its rooms you can enjoy breathtaking views over the Umbrian Valley and each morning you will awaken to the sounds of the pristine natural surroundings. Only a few minutes from the historic and cultural cities of Umbria, this place, nestled in a verdant oasis, will allow you to rediscover the lovely charm of silence and the warmth of a family atmosphere.
