A large terrace overlooks the main pool where catering service is available on previous request. Perfect location for relaxing, sports and cultural sightseeing. Many activities on the spot such as cookery courses, horse riding centre with English speaking instructor, tennis court. Ideal place for horse riding excursions. A golf course near by.
Further details for this vacation rental
This place is a great facility for those who love to do sports in beautiful natural context. At the same time the castle estate and the park of the castle itself are extremely suitable for children and throughout the year many families come to the castle because of its children facilities: children's riding school with ponies, children's playground, babies pool, mini-football pitch, ping pong, billiard table and table football. All cottages have gas central heating for the cold winter nights, although, even in late November it can be warm enough not to need heating. Of course, for the off-season guest, as Santa Cristina is in the heart of the forest, there is plenty of wood to burn to enjoy a cosy fireside evening with a glass of local wine and a good book.
Shops and supermarkets are easily reachable from the castle. You can find plenty of them in the two villages of Grotte di Castro (4 km)and Acquapendente(14km). A selection of the best restaurants is available at the castle reception for all the guests.
