At the Castle the ancient tradition of the garden between the towers has also been maintained over the centuries
The lavender and myrtle gardens where Vittoria Colonna used to walk and the olive groves and vineyards that supported the large population of the Castle in medieval times have generated the garden of Il Monastero today.
A garden of perfumes and flowers, broom, wisteria, daisies, and a vegetable garden filled with the goodness of country produce: aubergines, zucchini, tomatoes, salad greens, fennel, and vines with Biancolella grapes that produce an excellent wine.
A feast for the eyes, the garden of Il Monastero with its marvellous colours is intoxicating with a thousand perfumes, and a treat for the palate with its fruit, vegetables and legumes, all completely organically grown: this provides the basis for the hotel’s cuisine, the “Cucina del Monastero” – wine included.
The paths between the flower beds, the grape-covered pergolas, the verdant lawn, and the fragrant walks among the fruit trees beckon us to Arcadian strolls, the stone benches and the belvedere invite us to linger in the shade or relax with a book.
