About

Dear Guest

I and my family will be delighted to have you as our guests,and share with you the beauties of Gravedona and our incomparable lake!

Bed and Breakfast Al Castello is located in the heart of the historic centre of Gravedona ed Uniti, where you can still see the remains of the old castle walls and the old meeting square, which is now the marvellous viewpoint known as the Belvedere or Pra’ Castello. The whole area is full of ancient lanes and stairways leading either to the main squares or to the main road, the ‘Regina’.

The oldest houses in Gravedona are found right here , around a little central square called Piazza Motta. After more than 30 years working in the real estate sector, I and my family decided to buy a house located half way up the main flight of steps to the ‘Castello’ area and bring it back to life as a Bed and Breakfast.

The house dates back to 1200. It has three floors and a wonderful view over the roofs to the mountains all around us. The renovation work has been done with great respect for the history of the building, retaining every possible original feature such as wood ceilings, ancient tiled floors and steps made of locally quarried stone. During the work we were thrilled to find, hidden under some later plaster, a well-preserved fresco from 1400, measuring 1.5 x 1.5 metres. It has been very carefully restored by Rosella Bernasconi, an expert in fine art restoration.
