Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially the warm, hospitable staff. Loved the view from the Red Room overlooking the mountains. We awoke to the smell of delicious croissants daily and freshly brewed coffee. Castel del Monte is a great central location for exploring Abruzzo and all of its medieval villages. It's centrally located high up in the mountains and close to Campo Imperatore. The hiking is AMAZING !! The breakfast is included but dinner is available which also was delicious. The B&B is rustic and very charming as is this beautiful Village, listed as one of the top 100 most beautiful villages in Italy ! We will definitely be returning to the Locanda and the very gracious Cetra Family. Lastly, English is spoken by Marco who was extremely helpful in making suggestions for our day trips !!
