Antique Residence.    The Corte della Maestà is in a dominant position with unique and highly evocative views. It retains the charm of centuries of history: the ideal destination in which to bask in a peaceful environment and benefit from an unhurried lifestyle, a tranquil and authentic haven surrounded by an uncontaminated nature. Used by Bishop Ferdinando di Castello as an episcopal seminars between the Fifth and Sixth centuries, the Court has been faithfully restored in keeping with the Borgo’s historic and rural past, evoking the enchanting atmosphere of times gone by and maintaining fragments of its antique frescoes.


The building is adjacent to the episcopal seat that was active until 1685, with which it shares a large garden and orchard, a part of which is at the guests’ disposal. The Corte della Maestà’s rooms are tastefully furnished with antiques, their authenticity in strict harmony with the environment. With regard to the Corte’s restoration, every possible effort has been made to safeguard the spirit of the era that the building still maintains, and that it wishes to conserve through the years ahead. The windows offer magnificent panoramic views of the garden and the breathtaking landscapes beyond. Each apartment consists of study/living room, double bedroom, with bath and/or shower.

Un tempo adibita dal Vescovo Ferdinando di Castillo a cavallo tra il V e il VI secolo a seminario vescovile  Corte della Maestà è stata restaurata mantenendo la memoria storica e rurale del Borgo, evocando l’atmosfera incantevole dei tempi passati e mantenendo frammenti degli antichi affreschi. L’edificio è adiacente al vescovado che fu attivo fino al 1685, con la quale condivide un grande giardino con frutteto. Gli arredi provengono da antiquari di tutta Italia e da una accurata ricerca per ridonare all'edifico l'atmosfera storica che la pervade. Anche il giardino è curato nei particolari (arredi antichi da giardino) e nella scelta delle piante, molte le ortensie rare e antiche rose inglesi.
