ABOUT THE PROPERTY:

Forget your typical notions of vacation. The Palazzo Zampaglione B&B is for those that do. Italian charm awaits you. Two rooms that will delight your senses, The Poetess' Room and the The Prince's Room are styled with a royal touch.

Explore the area thoroughly as you learn about local culinary delicacies and exceptional wines. Plenty of activities and Mediterranean hospitality await you. The options are endless: take a class in traditional ceramics, learn to needlepoint, go truffle hunting, sip fine labels at regional wine tastings, partake in culinary demonstrations or visit the wine production estate and learn about wine barrel production practices handed down through generations of wine makers.

Find on the premises an old-world style restaurant where dining is an art and cooking is a passion. La Locanda dell'Arco Ristorante offers inside and outside dining, while the inside of the Locanda dell'Arco is where the old cellars used to be and carved out of the rock in the hillside of Calitri. The philosophy behind the restaurant - coined by the current baron Zampaglione - is that the table is the guests' for the evening, and where the person dining at the Locanda is treated more like an honoured visitor than a client.

The Palazzo is a three-story building of historical importance. The ground floor of the palazzo dates back as far as the end of the 15th century and is characterized by vaulted-ceiling cellars. Many internal sections of the palazzo are strengthened in wood, on which carved and painted heraldic decorations can be seen on display. The palazzo has been completely restructured with a view to maintaining all the characteristics and flavors of its history.

Visitors will be able to discern noticeable English influence from the family ties the Zampagliones (the owners of the Palazzo) have with the Winspeares of England. On the first floor, adjacent to the main entrance of the Palazzo, is the family's private chapel with frescoed walls and an engraved marble altar dating back from the 1700s. Also in the chapel is an antique Neapolitan nativity crib from the same period. The palazzo's numerous stone decorations are of historical importance, among which the main door's stone entrance-way, which bears the Zampaglione family coat of arms, and a traditional stone mask set into one of the palazzo's archways (according to local superstitions these masks ward off negative influences and spirits)
