Castello di Procopio, Umbria

In the intense sunshine of an Umbrian summer, what could be cooler than a historic hilltop castle all to yourself and your family or friends? Certainly, literally nothing could be cooler than being inside its stony sanctum, in one of its eight majestic bedrooms, for that essential mid-afternoon snooze. Or, if you have boundless energy, working off yet another most delicious lunch in its private swimming pool.
