The Castello B&B is a hidden gem found within the heart of the mid Valcamonica area. During my week-long stay there, the attentive hotel staff took all steps to make me feel comfortable and right at home. They even went out of their way to offer me several vegan options to accommodate my strict diet without any hassle.
This charming family-operated establishment is an ideal location to seek the enigmatic Valcamonica petroglyphs, nature trails, and a medieval castle/fortress known as Il Castello di Cimbergo which gives you a 360° view of the mid Valcamonica area and its close proximity to the snow-topped Alpine mountains.
You will often be greeted by the friendly local residents in this area who are proud of their Camunian culture and their artisan crafts.
If you're an avid hiker or a nature/bird lover, there are several good nature trails in the vicinity. A note about getting around: the local Bonomi bus/transit system is available from Monday to Saturday but has limited service hours during those days and there are no taxis available anywhere within this area. It is best to have a vehicle to get around the Valcamonica area, especially if you plan to visit its various petroglyphs and other important archaeological sites and museums.
I would like to give a warm and special thanks to Gian Marco and his family for making this a memorable and worthwhile visit to Valcamonica!
