Converted Hillside Monastery


On the slopes of the Appenine mountains the setting and physical structure of this ancient monastery make an immediate impression and once inside, the scale, beauty and history create a special atmosphere. Now a unique 12 bedroom hotel and wedding venue you can be assured of a very twenty first century level of finish and comfort making a visit here a delightful and unforgettable experience for you and your international guests. Although the complex is large, due to the way it is divided into pleasant spaces it is ideal for small and large weddings alike.

The Monastery is close to the historic town of L'Aquila in central Italy, about 100 km from Rome or Pescara and about a one and a half hours drive from both these airports. There is also a good range of additional accommodation a short drive away making it a suitable location for small and large groups.

  • Civil or symbolic ceremony on site.
  • Several historic Catholic Churches nearby.
  • Catering on site with Michelin starred chef.
  • Suitable for wedding groups of 40 to 150.
