Castello Di Monte


A Tuscan-style boutique hotel, set atop a hillside overlooking the vibrant city of Pretoria

In an affluent suburb overlooking Pretoria, Castello Di Monte is a boutique hotel that bears a remarkable semblance to an old 16th-Century Tuscan villa. A wonderful Italian charm surrounds the estate, which is elaborately furnished with classical Italian architecture like the impressive stucco façade and the grand copper gated entrance. A welcoming retreat for city-weary guests, the hotel has a host of excellent facilities, including generous scenic terraces, a stunning outdoor pool, and beautifully landscaped Mediterranean-inspired gardens.

Castello Di Monte has one on-site dining facility, a charming restaurant that delivers a delicious menu of French and South African-inspired cuisine. Primarily served in the hotel's elegant main dining room, you can also choose to eat on the open outdoor terrace, a private balcony, or among the sweeping views of the panoramic decking area.

In keeping with the hotel's 16th-Century splendour, every room is elaborately decorated with a wonderful bygone charm. While only the Terrace Rooms have private balconies, there is a lovely Italian grandeur to all of the rooms, which seamlessly combine warm golden colour schemes and rich period furniture with spacious arched doorways and luxurious bathroom en suites.
