Castello di Semivicoli History
The Castle of Semivicoli is a building built between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries on the highest point of Semivicoli from where it is possible to extend the look from Maiella to the Adriatic.
Belonging to the family of the Duke of Celaya Sannita until 1790 it was then sold to a family of merchants from Sulmona. For centuries the palace has been the center of the surrounding country: in fact all the places of transformation of the raw materials characteristic of rural life are preserved, from an oil mill of 1868, to the wine-making tanks, to a granary, today charme, at the barrel of 1808, today transformed into a tasting room.
In the internal garden is located the former Church of Semivicoli replaced in 1846 by the Church facing the palace, built for concession to the curia by the Baron Perticone.
In this territory rich in ancient traditions, where the scents and colors are those of a bygone age and the typical products are part of the truest genuineness of an Italy still linked to the land, the Masciarelli family decided to buy the castle and make it a place where elegance and the old come together, creating a magical atmosphere in which to leave the chaos of the city and a place where to put to good use the long experience in the production of fine wines.
The Castle on the main floor features 11 elegant rooms and 3 suites uniquely decorated with antique furniture and elements of refined design, embellished with evocative fireplaces and particular chandeliers; at the bar of the property guests can then taste the wines in the tasting room, or indulge in the most beneficial leisure in the relaxation room or in the music room.
The structure is also an ideal place to host events such as meetings, conferences, banquets and receptions during which the Chefs will be ready to offer menus with particular attention to the local food and wine tradition.
