The Castello was the unforgettable and beautiful setting for our wedding. Words can't express what a magical weekend we had staying here with our friends and family to celebrate our wedding. The rooms are beautifully decorated with breathtaking views across the surrounding countryside. The top floor apartments have been renovated with such sympathy to the history of the Castello while...

I chose to get married at the Castello di Monterado, and it was one of the best choices I could have made. It goes without saying that the physical venue is breathtakingly beautiful, being a castle built in 1732. It still houses many original antiques, and has been cared for and renovated with great sympathy and excellent personal taste. The...

and thoroughly recommended. We live in an old stone house in Wales and take an almost professional interest in other old houses. This one has been beautifully and sensitively restored with much thought given to the comfort of guests. No evening meal available but there is a restaurant (very pleasant) only a couple of minutes walk away but a very...

There is something so particularly memorable about Monterado. The combination of beauty, luxury, comfort, and yet informality brings us back every year. There really is no place that I would rather spend a summer weeks or two.

...one of their apartments situated in the small piazza beside the castle...modern and clean rooms, wi-fi, tv, washing machine, free parking, but no elevator and no terrace/balcony (that's why a 4 not a 5)...still we're very pleased of our one-week stay...the calm, the nice surroundings, the garden, the pool, the service...all worked perfect...we'll be back!

From the moment we pulled up to the stunning grounds of the Castello di Monderado, we knew we were in for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the lovely owners of the property, who could not have been more friendly or accommodating. After a brief tour of the grounds, they took us to our room, which overlooked...

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
