Italy’s extra-small hotels. From wine resorts and castles to farmhouses

By Tuesday, 26 October 2021 11:00

In these times of social distancing small hotels are much in demand as they can guarantee privacy as well as total immersion in some of Italy’s most stunning beauty spots, without forgetting the comforts of a large hotel.  A farm with a view of the Dolomites, a wine resort surrounded by vineyards, a traditional residence in the lush Sicilian countryside, castles and noble palaces - there is so much to choose from! Each one is unique, and in common they have just a few rooms and no shortage of private spaces. Small is beautiful for exclusive and pampering holidays.

Oh what a beautiful castle!

History books tell the story of  Baron Rovero di Champeaux who built the fortified village of Campello Alto near Perugia  just a thousand years ago. Relais Borgo Campello in a Game of Thrones location consists of a castle and an ancient monastery with ten exclusive rooms and olive groves that wind between Assisi and Spoleto. Relais Borgo Campello Tel. 3204549321
