The Hotel Castello Di Sinio in the Province of Cuneo, Piedmont is a one-of-a-kind property. It's over 800 years old, and much of the building is original, which gives guests the feeling of having stepped back in time. Despite the impressive size of the castle, only 18 rooms are available. That allows the American expat owner, who also does all the cooking, to get to know her guests. Rooms are about what one would expect from a castle hotel, and have stone walls, rich rugs, and wood-beam ceilings. It is a high-end property, but likely worth the price, especially for those who are art, history, and wine enthusiasts.
