A, Enchanting holiday homes with private garden in castle
The castle of Strassoldo di Sopra is still the private home of the counts of Strassoldo who have totally and finely restored three beautiful stone homes forming part of the castle's borgo:
- La Vicinia (sleeps 4 people. 2 double room each with private bathroom)
- Casa Rambaldo (sleeps 4 people. 1 double room + a loft with a double bed)
- Casa Artuico (sleeps 3. 1 double bedroom + a single bed behind a separé)
On the other side of the castle there is the ancient rice mill (Pileria del riso), a big building (500 sqm) which has 4 vast double rooms which are rented as bed and breakfast rooms (150 € per night/room including breakfast).
The whole rice mill can also be rented as a holiday home for a maximum 8 people occupation, for a minimum of 1 week.
Each of these charming homes has its own private garden, guaranteeing the guests' privacy, with access on the castle's main beautiful garden.
They are provided with every comfort and are very nicely furnished.
The complex of the Castle of Strassoldo di Sopra is formed by the main building, where the family Strassoldo still lives, which is surrounded by a series of beautiful stone buildings in olden times used as guards' houses, administrative and judicial centre, stables, artisans' house, granaries, archives, rice mill and the ancient tower.
The main buillding is connected by an arch to the church of St. Nikolaus, formerly the castle's chapel, where catholic masses are held on Sundays, on one side and to the ancient tower on the other side.
The setting is really beautiful and the whole castle complex is surrounded by lovely gardens, crossed by spring-water streams and rivers.
Strassoldo is a precious gem of a lovely and still unknown region which is not overrun by tourists. In fact, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, has many important historical sites, a lovely nature with many different wonderful landscapes ranging from high mountains, through rolling hills and green plains to rock or sand beaches.
The castle is situated in a very central position from where it is easy to reach all these attractions.
Only to mention a few, #Venice is reachable in 1 hour's drive, the ancient Roman colony of Aquileia (the second biggest colony of Rome) is reachable in 10 minutes, the golden beach of Grado in 20 minutes, the beautiful town of Udine in 30 minutes, the marvelous Adriatic Gulf with the town/port of Trieste in 38 minutes, Slovenia in 35 minutes and Austria in 60 minutes.
The guests of the castle's holiday homes, can relax, make very nice walks in the Friulian countryside, go biking through cute little rural villages, go swimming in the nearby Adriatic sea and make nice day excursions to many interesting regional sites and towns.
The region also offers the possibility to taste excellent #Friulan wines and food.
