Perched high on a hilltop with splendid mountain views of the western Dolomites, the utterly charming Castel Pergine offers affordable accommodations in a region rich with castles but surprisingly few castle hotels.
Swiss couple Verena Neff and Theo Schneider arrived from Switzerland in 1993 to become Castel Pergine’s new hosts. Their love for the castle has transformed it into a cultural center for the area, offering regular music and art events.
For many years Castel Pergine has been known more for its restaurant than for its guest rooms, but all that has changed. Seventeen rooms now have modernized bathrooms; others have hot and cold running water and a shower and toilet on the same floor.
Guest rooms are on the rustic side with antique furnishings, carved-wood trim, wood beds, and lacy curtains. Many of the rooms were completely renovated and redecorated in the winter of 2013.
