At Monteverdi, the focus is nearly entirely on beauty. It is abundant in every nook and cranny, of which there are plenty within the medieval village-turned luxury hotel.

The first group seeks out the incomparable remoteness and relaxation Monteverdi has to offer, while the latter comes for inspiration. Upon visiting, it’s not difficult to understand how Wes Anderson came to write The Grand Budapest Hotel in one of Monteverdi’s very Wes Anderson-esque rooms.
