When my husband told me he had booked us a castle of our own on a hilltop in Italy to celebrate our 33rd anniversary, I thought he was overstating it. Until I saw the online photo. And I soon found that photo did not do the place justice. As most beauty—the camera just does not capture.
We had arrived at Torre del Falco after several days of travel that been exhausting. We were caught in the recent British Airways debacle in London (beginning of our trip radically changed, luggage lost, etc.) and so by the time we got to Spoleto, I was a little emotionally and physically spent. My eyes perked up as we drove the winding road up to the flower-lined driveway and when we got to the top and arrived on the property, my eyes widened and were filled with the glorious, unimaginable view. And that was just when we met Beatrice! Beatrice met us at our car and was the loveliest of hosts. She took us to our castle, made us feel at home and did everything in her power to make sure our stay was the most special it could be. It truly was. My husband and I had the entire tower to ourselves with many rooms from which to choose, and of course, we wanted to stay in the top floor to have the pinnacle. Our view at the top was extraordinary to say the least. When something is indescribably beautiful, I like to say “It broke my eyes.” Torre del Falco broke my eyes and filled my heart. I would recommend Beatrice Panichi’s special, unforgettable place to all my friends and more. I will never forget her or her castle.
