I heartily echo all previous reviews - the setting - the rooms - the breakfast, were all beyond expectations. Orlando and Kira went out of their way to welcome us and make our regrettably brief stay as perfect as possible - The Marche itself is overwhelming gorgeous - a jewel that is matched beautifully with a stay at the Castello.

After traveling Umbria and Le Marches for 2 weeks, we wanted a place to unwind before the end of our holiday. Castello di Monterado certainly ticked all the boxes and was more than we expected. The castle is a grand place with common rooms, hallways, and suites of frescoed ceilings, terrazzo/mosaic floors, antique furnishings, and well manicured gardens, along with... More

Atop the rolling hills of Le Marche sits the castle that overlooks the high Sibillini mountains and the Adriatic Sea. Never in my life have I been to such a magical place. The castello was beautifully renovated and restored to its original splendor by a lovely Italian family that has owned it for almost a century. This place is beyond... More

Arriving at the grounds of Castello di Monterado was simply breathtaking. The castle is surrounded by pebbled paths, flowers and so much greenery, the oh so welcomed fresh air of the Italian countryside and impeccable views of the green rolling hills of Ancona. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Orlando, who made sure our every request was granted and... More

Visiting Castello di Monterado is a most unusual experience. We felt as if it were a privilege and honor to stay in the castello, which is lavishly furnished with amazing antiques and artwork. Orlando, the owner and driving force behind this brilliant renovation is both helpful and charming. There is a fine restaurant nearby, but be forewarned the portions are... More

How Italian hospitality showed it superiority. Staying in a beautiful with fresco’s decorated room where the nephew of Napoleon celebrated his honeymoon our stay was a continuous waterfall of fantastic new surprises in the decorations. The room was very large and split in living, small living, bathroom and bedroom. One part of hotel room larger than the other all with... More

One of the best quality price ratio I have seen recently. You dive into an imposing nobleman mansion, in the centre of a nice village, your room is completely refurbished with 5 meters high ceilings and all new desirable apparels, including a jacuzzi and with a wonderful view for just 150 euros per night. Service is very appropriate and helpful... More

My wife and I spent three nights in the Castello in late September early October 2012. I can't imagine a better pace to be in Le Marche. Our rooms consisted of a living room, bedroom and bath which were all quite large. Two rooms were wonderfully "old world" while the bath was very modern, including a jetted tub. Breakfast was...

We spent one night at this beautiful castle. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Orlando, the owner who opened up the gate for us to drive through the gardens to the front door of the Castle. The Castle is situated on the top of a hill with a surrounding small village. Our rooms were large, elegant, furnished with antiques... More

My family stayed just one night on our way from Rome to Venice and I begged them to leave me behind! We were in the Belle Vista suite...an aptly name suite as one look out of the windows at the rolling farmlands will prove. What a vision! In the morning we heard the distant crowing of a rooster which was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The castle building rises above the perimeter walls of an ancient parish church from the year one thousand, belonging to the monks of the Fonte Avellana hermitage.Once owned by the Duke of Urbino, it passed on to the College of the Jesuit Fathers, to whom the present shape of the palace is owed, built in the early 1700’s to the designs of the architect Luigi Vanvitelli. Preserved from the period are the Jesuit style chapel, the immense cellars, some of the monastic cells and the crest of Pope Gregory XIII over the entrance door.During Napoleonic occupation, the Castle and lands became an appanage of the viceroy of Italy, son of Giuseppina Beauharnais wife of the emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, Prince Eugène, who remained in possession of it even after the Congress of Vienna.In 1824, it was inherited by his son Maximilian who, charmed by the place, turned it into a princely residence, having the nobility floor decorated with mythological frescoes, nearly all of which are preserved.In 1846 the assets were acquired by the Papal State and then sold. Monterado was acquired by Count Cerasi, who arranged the park as it is still today. During World War II, the building was bombed and occupied by both of the warring parties.The present owners have seen to careful restoration and reinstatement of the structure.The Castle opens its suites with originals frescoes to its guests:Suite AfroditeThe centre of the bedroom ceiling is decorated by a scene depicting the birth of Aphrodite from the sea. Rich decorations surround the frescoes of Nereids and Tritons in a complex but refined pattern of friezes, festoons, loops and medallions. The ceiling of the small studio is adorned with mythological figures surrounding Diana the huntress.Even the ceiling of the bathroom is frescoed.Suite AmoriniThe warm and colourful 17th century frescoes depict playful cherubs chasing each other across the bedroom ceiling. The oak wood floor also adds to the enveloping sensation of cosiness and serenity. The walls of the adjacent lounge are completely frescoed with classical scenes of buildings and ruins from the Roman era. The windows afford a splendid view over the woods and Italian gardens.Suite AthenaThis was the private studio of prince August Maximilian de Beauharnaisthe patron behind the castle’s greatest works of art. In the centre of the bedroom ceiling there is a multitude of joyful nymphs and cherubs, surrounded by wonderful dancing girl motifs and floral friezes. ... more   less
