Our family of five stayed in a spacious, comfy suite with lots of room to spread out. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and went to great lengths to assure our every happiness. Great selection at breakfast and cappuccino was right on. Beautiful location at the summit of Loreto Aprutino and the castle itself was dream-like. The kids got a kick out of staying in a castle. Drawbacks: wifi only available in the lobby area and windows are not sound-insulated. It only became an issue when there was a wedding reception taking place poolside. Our room overlooked the pool which provided nice view but made it noisy on party night. I'd stay here again for comfort and cleanliness of room/hotel and friendliness of exceptional staff.

The hotel is a former castle restored and converted into a hotel located about an hour from major sites, including the Gran Sasso national park to the west and Pescara to the east. The small roads around this part of Abruzzo are hilled and dappled with small villages, quilt-like farm plots, and olive tree groves. The best aspects of staying in this hotel for us included: the historic feel, the spacious bedroom, the comfortable bed, the nice restaurant on site, easy parking. The negative aspects were: a/c stuck in a recessed window, so the room was not very cool; no view (we stayed on a first floor room that had a "view" blocked by the trees around the castle), the front desk was out of maps of the small town (this was the height of tourist season, a "four star" hotel should be prepared); the breakfast was TERRIBLE (very little selection, nothing freshly cooked); the bathroom shower water alternated scalding and freezing every 120 seconds; no complimentary bottles of water offered; two small pillows on a king-sized bed. In short, the castle outside is four star, but the inside is two star.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a view.

We spent six wonderful relaxing days in this beautifully converted castle in the hills behind Pescara. Very helpful and friendly staff, good breakfast and excellent, reasonably priced restaurant. Don't miss the occasional poolside dinners. Our room was large and very comfortable. The wi-fi internet coverage, only near reception, was terrible. Seems to be the norm in Italy - Marconi must be turning in his grave. The swimming pool is small but more than adequate, although it could be kept cleaner - lots of dead insects floating around when we were there. They serve a pleasant lunch menu by the pool.

Nice location. Lovely village but the hotel may look great on the outside and have a nice pool but inside you find yourself in a "typical" western hotel. The room we were in was a bit faded and past its best.
We never ate our evening meal in the hotel prefering the small place down the road slightly.

A lot of other guests were there as well. Breakfast was un remarkable......

Certainly living on its laurels as a 4 star......which was a shame as we'd looked forward to staying there....too expensive for the quality of the place.....

This place is breathtaking. We have never stayed in a place with rooms so large. We were taken back at how empty it was. It felt like we were the only people there. It was disappointing to find that the restaurant was closed on the night we were there but then again I think it was because of the
low head count. We were suggested a pizzaria in the town or a nice more formal place for a meal. We chose the latter and were not disappointed. When we showed up we were the only customers there and got undivided attention from the owner/chef/waiter until 2 other people showed up. Needless to say we felt like tourists as we kept getting the looks from the other 2 until they finally asked what we were doing in this out of the way town. This just added to the ambiance for us and we ended up having a great conversation with one of the other guests. The hotel had the most amazing views of the valley below and you could tell some very precise craftsman had restored this once glorious castle. If you're looking for a romantic getaway with your better half this is the place. Would have been a great place to crash for 3 days instead of one but we take away some great memories.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a view.
