To reach Corte della Maestà, you must walk history's footsteps and cross the medieval bridge that leads to the picturesque town of Civita di Bagnoregio. Italy is well endowed with hilltop towns, but Corte della Maestà breathes an ambience you will seldom experience, as it is a place far from the stress of everyday life, where the charm of the countryside and the grandiosity of the hilltop scaffold the Borgo's magical setting.
This boutique gem offers five individually styled rooms, each consisting of a living room, double bedroom and an elegant bathroom. Magnificent views of the valley or garden come inclusive with the seasons, as the sights and sounds differ depending on the time of the year that it is. In the winter you can cosy up in front of the stone fireplace whilst summers are all about chilling under their numerous fruit trees. This timeless retreat is a year-round destination, with spring and autumn being lovely months for both the weather and the views of nature blossoming.
The bliss in the wine and dine is one of the best amenities the hotel has. Breakfast is served in the garden in the shades of the pergola. The cosy decorated kitchen is actually a meeting point for all guests when the weather gets a little cranky. The large kitchen has an available cook when needed, but guests have the freedom to do their own cooking or even take an informal cooking class with a day's notice. Additionally, their archbishop winery has been renovated and it is actually a cave. It is used on special occasions for wine or cheese tastings.
The divine abodes of thermal baths is easily reached from Corte della Maestà: Terme dei Papi in Viterbo, Saturnia, Bagno Vignoni and San Casciano are highly recommended. If having a lie-in is your preference, do use the hotel's little spa which includes a Finnish sauna and a very large massage pool for up to two people.When you fancy a day of activities, the corte can organise horseback riding, cycling group tour or even help you choose a boat to rent at the nearby Lago Bolsena. With no task too big or small, the staff will be of immediate support to your holiday stay.
