Who We Are

The activity of the Castello Dal Pozzo was founded in 1997 by the thought of Cassiano Dal Pozzo to transform the historic family residence, in an exclusive and unique place, accessible to all those who were fascinated about it.

The concept of hospitality has always been a fundamental element of distinction for the Dal Pozzo Family, and this has been reinterpreted in a modern key, in order to propose a unique place accompanied by exceptional service, to offer to the demanding customers of the new millennium. Ambitious goal because, in addition to having to promote the Resort, it is essential to promote the territory, since the two elements are deeply connected.

The gradual restructuring and transformation of the Castle, and the recovery of the other buildings, first of all the one named Palazzo Visconti (2010) and after the Stables (2015), have led Castello Dal Pozzo to be a benchmark in the international hospitality industry.

The offering today is growing, as well as the experience, and from the beginning, where the property was a simple venue for events, today boasts 45 unique rooms, the gourmet restaurant "Le Fief", the Wine Bar "Dal Pozzo 24", the conference centre “Cassiano III”, and dedicated services for all needs.

Castello Dal Pozzo Team

Although it is a family run company, the Castello Dal Pozzo organization follows a management style blueprint where a highly qualified management and sales team together with the vision of the family, can give the hotel the character and unique personality it needs to grow and be the best.

Today the ownership of the property is in the hands of the three Dal Pozzo Brothers, Oberto, Vittorio and Cassiano while the daily operations are under the direction of Aimone Dal Pozzo, Cassiano’s son.
