Most extraordinary place to stay, one's castle. Reception & staff are most welcoming. Wake up to choir's & ringing bells in an otherwise quiet Roman village. Very interesting places to visit - Castello Ducale, Cattedrale, Muse Civico. A must is the Osteria - Ndo'Save'rie Lu Conte for a gourmet of local foods produced & prepared by Saverio, the Michelangelo of... More

What a surprise. This was the beginning of a two week stay in Italy. After leaving here we traveled from Capri to Lake Como staying in 4 Star Hotels in every stop. Our favorite by far is Residenza Ducale. The room was so spacious, the bed the best of all, and the bathroom with a heated floor was an added... More

We had a massive bedroom and had a chance to see some of the other rooms that were just as big, individually decorated keeping the character of the building. The breakfast was Italian style with plenty to chose from. There is no reception at night but with our keys we were free to come and go as we pleased. Michele... More

One of our favourite stopovers during a 1,500 mile cycling trip of Italy, even if it did involve a 5 mile climb to its spectacular hilltop location.A beautiful apartment in an atmospheric medieval castle, a real experience.We loved the tunnel and gateway down into the town, felt as if we were in some historical drama.Stunning views and a picturesque village,...

as a "Bovinese" I have stayed at this wonderful B&B on many occaions. Out of all the B&B's in Bovino, of which I believe there are 12 with 2 more in the planning, this is the one I prefer for its tranquillity, serenity and panoramic views. The lads that manage the business are very helpful and nothing is to much... More

I stayed at this spectacular medieval castle in March 2012 for a business meeting in the town of Bovino. Firstly, if you are in the area you will not find a more authentic and unspoilt Italian hilltop village and community. It’s crying out to be a film set. The castle provided three bedrooms at the time I visited, but I... More

You aren't really staying in a castle in the sense one would hope. There are a few rooms blocked off from the rest of the building and you could be staying anywhere. Actually, anywhere might be better since there is no one actually there most of time and it's a lot like having a freestanding apartment with no service. They... More

First, Bovino is way off the beaten track. This is small town Italy, so if this is what you are looking for, you can find it in Bovino. If you come by way of Accadia, it will be a long, winding drive through the hills. And I do mean "long." Bovino has about three restaurants and, as tourists, you will... More

Bovino is off the main road tucked away up in the hills but it is certainly worth the effort, especially if you have your own vehicle. We chose Residenza Ducale because it is set within a Norman Castle and it certainly didn't disappoint. The rooms were spacious with all mod cons, quality fittings and great views. The only negative with... More
