I also received contact from a young man who tells me we are related in the Santoro line. I am waiting for more information. I am told that both lines have been in Priverno since the 1600s. I may also be related to one of the men who founded the village.

I said well if you're going up so am I, as snuck in to her little section they had her in side of stage. I took off my shoes and socks to dance like Michael does, and he never wears shoes.

Historical Traveler Reviews Princess Anne Hotel Asheville
This small hotel/b&B personifies Asheville. It is beautiful, very fashionable, high-tech among the period furnishings, and friendly. The room was very comfortable, breakfasts good, and the wine and cheese in the late afternoon was great. I don't really feel like visiting with other guests at breakfast (the beautiful dining room was spacious so no sitting at tables together), but it was great fun to talk about the day so far around 5.
Really recommend the place. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Knew what restaurants needed reservations and made them for us.
We just returned from a trip through NC. The Princess Anne was certainly the highlight of the trip. We extended our stay by one night and the staff was very accomodating to our change of plans. The hotel is accessible, with no steps into the hotel. There is an elevator, but a large wheelchair or scooter might find it a tight fit. Each room is different, but beautifully appointed. The beds were comfortable, each room is seperately temperature controlled and with wireless access. All the modern conveniences did not distract from the decor at all. The wine and cheese hour was a nice touch. Sipping wine on the wide porch was very relaxing. There are several sitting rooms, with tall ceilings and beautiful decor. Breakfast on Sunday was Belgian waffles, fruit and bacon. Orange juice, tea, water and coffee are available. On Monday, there was a fresh fruit salad, yogurt, granola, a yummy blueberry coffee cake and a few other selections. The dining room makes you feel as if you are in a grand hotel. The grounds are well maintained and very peaceful. The staff goes to great lengths to accomodate your needs and make you feel at home. We will definitely go back!
The service and accomidations exceeded our expectation. The Hotel was simply oustanding. The quality of the rennovation was superb and created a sense of charm and character to a wonderfully historical structure.
We booked the entire Inn for family and friends attending our son's wedding held at the Biltmore Estate. The first time I stepped into the Princess Anne's lovely lobby last Fall to inspect the Inn I fell in love with it. The bright cheerful colors, the cleanliness of the entire Inn, the lovely decor in each individually decorated room, the gracious hospitality of Howard and his staff made this truly a wonderful place to stay. The breakfast's each morning were delicious and the wine and hors d'oeuvres every night made this such a wonderful environment for all of our guests to get to socialize with each other. The staff could not have done enough for us, they were very pleasant and accomodating. I would highly suggest this Inn to anyone visiting the Asheville area and especially if you want a personable place for friends and family if you are having a wedding in the area. Best of luck to all of you at the Princess Anne hotel and continued success! David and Linda Bustard
The Princess Anne Hotel has some lovely touches ... from the beautiful decor, the friendly and helpful staff, the wine & cheese in the afternoon, and the yummy truffles in the room. The common areas of the hotel are very inviting, and Asheville's persistent mountain breezes makes the open-air lay-out particularly attractive.
A "Five star" charming inn
Our family was fortunate to stay at the lovely Princess Anne Hotel during the holidays. The Inn not only portrays historical charm, but it also has somewhat of a European flair! We looked forward to the relaxing evenings with complimentary wine by the fireplace after an exciting day of hiking and visiting the surrounding area. The breakfast was so delicious too! Of course I just can not get the Belgian Waffles with a pecan sauce out of my mind!
This unique Inn is almost like going back in time. It is a place that you want to return time and again. I highly recommend this Inn and cannot wait for my next visit which is in July.
The Princess Anne is a treasure in the heart of Asheville's historic district in a very quiet neighborhood. The porches provided restful places to gather where gentle breezes cooled. This terrific B & B is newly restored as of the fall of 2005 with modern amenities that in no way detract from the historicity of the hotel. The color pallette of each room or suite is a feast for the eyes. Howard Stafford, the owner and preservationist of the Princess Anne, provided a beautiful venue for our party for our son and his fiance the night before their wedding. We had about fifty guests but Howard said that they've had parties in the hundreds. The staff accomodated our every need. Our family had an elegant yet home-like setting in which we felt comfortable and welcomed. The dining area is very large and grand and the food wonderful. My brother-in-law usually stays at the Grove Park Inn but said that in the future he'll stay at the Princess Anne.
My fiance and I stayed three nights at the Princess Anne in early March. He proposed the morning we left for Asheville and when we arrived we had a bottle of champagne waiting in our room.
Quaint and Lovely
My fiancee and I just returned from the Princess Anne hotel in Asheville. The hotel is quaint and absolutely lovely. We stayed in the one bedroom suite which was perfect for a couple. The bathroom had a gorgeous clawfoot tub and the bath amenities were wonderful. The room as well as the rest of the hotel was very clean. The stay included a sumptuous breakfast. The croissants and scones were completely delicious. The staff was courteous and attentive. The rooms are not equipped with hair dryers so I requested one from the front desk and they promptly brought it up. I highly recommend this place.
Great Place to Stay!
My wife and I stayed at the Princess Anne Hotel in Asheville, NC and we would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a romantic getaway. The rooms were reasonably priced and included a great breakfast (we had Belgium waffles). The staff was friendly and helpful and the inn keeper, Howard, was a gracious host.
We really enjoyed the afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres and the hotel was just beautiful!
