This small hotel is an extension of the owner, Carlo. He has lovingly refurbished the beautiful space, hand selected (or grown) most of the ingredients in the kitchen, personally selected the wine and the music, and oversees every detail of your stay. His hospitality alone would make this five stars, but the hotel accommodations themselves and the wonderful restaurant are...

Dear Friend, many thanks for the kind words ... which I particularly appreciate because you are experienced travelers and you have "good taste" in selecting the location, and selecting the Properties that have the "intrinsic added value", which makes the difference between an ordinary place and a "special place" .... the place that leaves you the emotions ... that remain...

Carlo is a very friendly, knowledgeable and gracious host who will assist and guide you with any and all things in the Lazio/Ciociara region. The village of Pico complete with it's castle is beautiful and the 1,000 year old home is lovingly...

Our only regret is that we stayed just one night at Nenà al Borgo Castello. Carlo is the most gracious host, and the hotel has great historical charm – its oldest parts date back 1000 years. The exposed wood beams and interesting antiques add to the cozy atmosphere. We stayed in the Bishop's Rooms, which consist of a comfortable bedroom,...
