Castello Chiola is an ancient mansion situated in the heart of Abruzzo and converted into a luxury hotel, thanks to a design project that placed it into the circuit of Dimore Storiche group. The common areas are unique and fascinating and the 50 rooms are large and overlook the valley of Loreto Aprutino, the little village that hosts the hotel.
The interiors remind of the architecture of the building and were realized with some traditional techniques and contemporary know-how. Its furniture was designed especially for this project and is characterized by the use of hand-finished framing and moulding, thanks to the traditional coating technique. Spaces were enriched by a selection of complements and finishes that remind of the tradition of ancient buildings. Remarkable is the large use of wallpapers, fabrics, high-quality floor carpets, rich curtains and textile elements decorated with French style motifs.
