The enchanting Casadonna lies in southern Italy's Abruzzo province, in the small city of Castel di Sangro, providing a historic oasis and the chance to discover an authentic side of Italy. This boutique hotel and restaurant - just six rooms in size - is housed in a building that was once a monastery, dating back to 500 A.D. Now fully restored and renovated into a beautiful retreat, Casadonna features large glass doors and windows, sophisticated interior design, and original stone and iron from its storied past. Guest rooms are drenched in sun, minimalist, and emphasize views of the surrounding hills and vineyards. The comforts that modern travelers expect are present and well selected, including wireless Internet, double showers, satellite television, and personal mini bars. Furthering the juxtaposition of ancient and modern, the first floor terrace is striking with its wood-lined floors, sleek modern furniture, and delicate white lights, all overlooking the impressive hillside surrounding Casadonna itself.
