A characterful stay in a Norman castle overlooking the Volturno River in Italy’s Benevento province

Castello di Limatola’s past may have been one of a defensive stronghold yet, since being taken over by the Sgueglia family, it has switched its focus from security to hospitality - becoming quite the brilliant country bolthole set deep in Campania. Thanks to a thoughtful restoration, the hotel has opened up its 12th-century doors to welcome even the most discerning guest, who could spend their days here enjoying the Volturno River views and Benevento landscape. Beyond its imposing facade and great location (under an hour's drive from Naples International Airport), there’s plenty to impress inside this Norman castle, too.

Bed down in one of the individually designed rooms here and you can enjoy frescoed ceilings, canopy beds and luxurious fabrics as standard. Former tenants have also been immortalised in the names of the guestrooms, which makes for a sojourn that's truly steeped in history. Completing the property's traditional take on things is the on-site restaurant, housed in former stables, which looks to the region’s produce and past to inspire its dishes.
