Castello di Casigliano is a small medieval village, immersed in the charming Umbrian hills. It has been created within a medieval hamlet developed around a 16th century manor-house. Today in its comfortable and quiet apartments , it can host tourists looking for peace and charm. Our motto is "elegance and simplicity": It reflects both the atmosphere of the setting and the recipes of our inn "Il re Beve", a restaurant setted in the castle's old wine-cellars. Our Country Inn is is the perfect location for wedding ceremonies, conferences as a location for film sets and of course as a centre for tourist activities.

History
Destroyed first by the Barbarians and then by the Ghibellini, the present building dates back to 1519 when it was handed over to Ludovico Atti as a reward for his loyal services to the Holy See, as General of the Pope's Army. The Castle of Casigliano was designed by Sangallo the Younger, a famous architect of that period. It was also used as a residence by Popes Paul III on his way back to Rome after a meeting with emperor Charles V in 1543. Ten years later, the Castle of Casigliano suffered an awful tragedy: the Atti's family was murdered by the hand of their relatives, the Cesi's. All this happen at the end of a banquet and it put an end to the feud started years before for the hegemony of the town of Todi. In 1605, it was bought by Prince Corsini of Florence from the Pope for 495.000 scudi. Today his heir, the countess Lucrezia Corsini still owns the property.
