Castel Pergine

Via al Castello 10, Pergine Valsugana, Trentino-Alto Adige, 38057, Italy

Tucked into a 13th-century castle's labyrinth of stone and brick chambers, prisons, and chapels are sparse, rustic rooms with carved-wood trim, lace curtains, and heavy wooden beds, some canopied. Occupied by Trento's prince-bishops in the 16th century, the castle is skillfully managed by the architect Theo Schneider and his charming wife, Verena Neff (a former translator), both from Switzerland. Modern-art installations grace the grounds, and the popular candlelit restaurant (non-guests welcome) serves lightened-up versions ages-old seasonal recipes from the area; guests can opt for half board.
