“Medieval charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

We had the pleasure of visiting Castel del Monte this year and were lucky enough to find this very charming Bed & Breakfast with its own restaurant operated by the Cetra family. If you want an authentic experience of Village life, this is the place !! Marco, Paola and Martina go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The warm smell of fresh baked croissants welcomed us each day and the views from this property are magnificant. Situated high in the mountains, 4,600ft up, Castel del Monte in Abruzzo has a wonderful, rustic beauty all of its own. If you want to escape off the beaten track to really experience la dolce vita, Castel del Monte is it. Moonlit strolls in this medieval charm are amazing ! Within a few miles you have the magnificant Campo Imperatore, the Little Tibet of Italy, Rocco Calascio and many small neighboring Villages. We loved our stay at La Locanda delle Streghe (also known as the Witches Inn). Marco also speaks very good English so you will have no problem making a reservation. We found this delightful B&B charming and it is delightfully decorated in the Witch's theme which is tied to the annual festival The Night of the Witches held August 17th. Highly recommend a stay at this unique, one of a kind B&B.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Red Room, charming !
