My husband and I traveled with my mother to Italy from the US to sightsee, and to visit our family in Santa Maria del Molise. Dimora Del Prete was our stop before the relatives. Our experience there was wonderful, and a highlight of our trip. Our first night there we had dinner on the rooftop terrace with several other people from different countries. The food and drinks were outstanding, the company interesting. A fantastic show of fireworks ended this magical night. Breakfast in the salon the next morning was excellent, as well. I look forward to visiting Italy again, and will be sure to put venafro and Dimora Del Prete on the top of my list to revisit. Thank you Dorothy for a memorable stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Palace of the delPrete di Belmonte rises in the middle of the old town centre of Venafro. The palace, on one of the cardinal roads of the Roman town, was restructured in neoclassical style around 1860. It has an enchanting internal garden, surrounded by other buildings. The upper floor of the palace is furnished with period furniture and the rooms, all with air-conditioning, wi-fi and private bathrooms, are available for guests. The ground floor, once used to keep carriages, has been transformed into a beautiful hall available for small conferences, private meetings and other social events. On the main floor, guests may enjoy breakfast in an elegant drawing room decorated with frescoed ceilings depicting views of the town and the delPrete country estates. Venafro, of pre-Roman origin (Samnites), is located in the lovely Volturno valley at the feet of Santa Croce mountain. In Venafro, one can find ruins of a Roman aqueduct, theatre and amphitheatre. Also of interest is the late-Romanesque Cathedral and the lombard Pandone castle. The archaeological Museum in the ex-convent of St.Chiara exhibits Roman finds, including a precious collection donated by the old delPrete family. The Latin poets Horatius, Plinius, Varro and Martialis praised Venafro because of the healthy air, the beautiful surroundings and above all, the olive groves from which even today is still produced an extraordinary fine olive oil. ... more less
