#1 of 3 B&Bs / Inns in Venafro
The Palace of the delPrete di Belmonte rises in the middle of the old town centre of Venafro. The palace, on one of the cardinal roads of the Roman town, was restructured in neoclassical style around 1860. It has an enchanting internal garden, surrounded by other buildings. The upper floor of the palace is furnished with period furniture and the rooms, all with air-conditioning, wi-fi and private bathrooms, are available for guests. The ground floor, once used to keep carriages, has been transformed into a beautiful hall available for small conferences, private meetings and other social events. On the main floor, guests may enjoy breakfast in an elegant drawing room decorated with frescoed ceilings depicting views of the town and the delPrete country estates. Venafro, of pre-Roman origin (Samnites), is located in the lovely Volturno valley at the feet of Santa Croce mountain. In Venafro, one can find ruins of a Roman aqueduct, theatre and amphitheatre. Also of interest is the late-Romanesque Cathedral and the lombard Pandone castle. The archaeological Museum in the ex-convent of St.Chiara exhibits Roman finds, including a precious collection donated by the old delPrete family. The Latin poets Horatius, Plinius, Varro and Martialis praised Venafro because of the healthy air, the beautiful surroundings and above all, the olive groves from which even today is still produced an extraordinary fine olive oil.

This palazzo houses a lovely B&B hosted by Dorothy, who provides a welcoming dwelling in the middle of Venafro. We are staying in the highest of the rooms, a suite with its own rooftop patio overlooking the Liri Valley. The room has A/C, which has been nice as the days warm. The breakfasts have been generous, including local fresh fruits and Dorothy’s own jams.

Everytime I step into Dorothy's fabulous home, I am reminded of the atmosphere of Il Leopardo. I love the faded grandeur, painstakingly and lovingly being restored By Dorothy Volpe. The welcome and service iare second to none and your individual needs are catered: although only my husband and I stayed, Dorothy organised a welcome drinks party on the roof top terrace and a 4 course gourmet meal for 9 without so much as a blink. On our arrival, we were warmly welcome by Dorothy and her team and invited to attend one of the concerts which take place on site. Both garden and roof terrace offer wonderful views over Venafro, a hidden gem of a town, with its castle, its roman amphitheatre and thermae. This is not our first stay, and certainly will not be our last. UNMISSABLE.

They say you should never go back to a place you've loved for fear of disappointment - but we took a chance and I'm pleased to say that Dimora del Prete di Belmonte is every bit as delightful as the first time we visited, and so there is little to add to my previous review, other than to comment on the room which was a real treat. If you can cope with the stairs I would recommend that you choose this room (not sure what it was called but if you ask for the room with the roof terrace I'm sure Dorothy will know which one!). The views over the roof tops of 'old' Venafro were simply magnificent and evocative of a time gone by. As I've said before this place isn't for everyone - I don't think there is any middle ground, if you love it, you'll really love it, (but haters are gonna hate!). It is clean, simple and grand, but high-tec it ain't, so if you want digital TV, lifts, & gadgets - book elsewhere you won't like it. But if you've got any romance or soul - book Dimora del Prete & fall in love.

The hotel sits in a old very typical building. Every room seems to be peculiar in its own way. Room quite cold in winter. Heating system not the most efficient. Decoration of rooms to be refreshed. Bathroom clean and convenient. Would not recommend for business stay.

Response from dimoradelprete, Proprietario at Dimora del Prete di Belmonte
Responded 13 Mar 2017
Dear Guest, thank you for your rewiew. I'm going to refresh the rooms. In fact, the room with terrace has been already refreshed. I decided to use the heating system I have so the guests can set the temperature by themselves. Many business travellers choose my place telling me that after their work, they can relax and feel at home, so they come back many times. In all the building there is free wi-fi and if you need a printer or to send a fax you can use the office.

We only stayed one night, and that night were the only guests. The owner Dorothy was not there, but arranged for a charming young man, Pascuale, to meet us and take care of us. We could not have been better looked after. Pascuale has a very detailed knowledge of the palazzo and the town - he took us on a short tour of it, which we enjoyed very much. He then cooked our delicious dinner at the palazzo. The palazzo is a beautiful house, and the family history very interesting. Our room was very well appointed, and great care was taken to make sure we were comfortable. Thank you to Dorothy, and especially to Pascuale for a memorable stay.
