Castello di Monterado History
The background on which the Castle of Monterado is located is the green hilly landscape of the Marches, with the nearby valleys and the splendid panorama of the Apennine peaks.
Designed by architect Luigi Vanvitelli in the eighteenth century, it has now become an exclusive historic home for lovers of charm and elegance. The village of Monterado is surrounded by a forest of oaks and pine trees along the side of the hill where the castle stands, seven hectares of park crossed by paths that guide guests in the fragrant garden where you can enjoy the coolness given by the imposing cedars of Lebanon. The swimming pool of the house, surrounded by the lawn and numerous bushes of lavender, rosemary, laurel, rose and jasmine, fits harmoniously into the surrounding landscape and allows you to embrace with your eyes the countryside of the Marche up to the Adriatic Sea.
The Castle has suites and apartments, elegantly furnished and steeped in the centuries-old history of a manor that has seen its noble walls, royal families and art lovers pass through. The rooms are embellished with frescoes and friezes of refined workmanship, oak wood floors and terraces with spectacular views of the sea or the park. The accommodation is completed with the availability of 6 apartments, located in a building completely restored in front of the castle, where you can stay in total privacy and independence. Equipped with spacious living rooms with dining rooms, kitchens and all the basic services of the suites, they are the ideal solution for families or those who want to enjoy a quiet and free holiday, with the advantage of the charm of a historic residence.
The interior rooms of the castle represent the precious heritage that distinguishes Monterado, such as the Breakfast Room, embellished with frescoes and magnificent setting for special occasions, the Sala della Musica, which houses a collection of rare musical instruments and the Library with its epoch and valuable books arranged on finely painted shelves.
At Castello di Monterado it is possible to organize your wedding by having the Chapel from which you can enter from the internal courtyard, while the large halls welcome the guests of the reception. Here, weddings, banquets and receptions of prestige take on added value given by the charm that only a historic home can offer.
