A Gorgeous,Tranquil Retreat, Full of History and Character
Ten of our family and friends spent a week at Castello Strassoldo, which is a gorgeous property that Gabriella has lovingly restored and maintained. We rented both the Rice Mill and Casa la Vicinia. All of our guests loved their rooms - which were beautifully decorated and featured well-appointed private bathrooms. Because of a recent local zoning change, one of the bedrooms in Casa la Vicinia was unable to be used, so Gabriella kindly offered the Tower Room in the castle. Our two friends who shared that space were blown away by its beauty. It also had a sitting room and a huge walk-in shower. They truly raved about it! Our friend who stayed in Casa La Vicinia was impressed with her lodging, and wished she could stay the entire week.
We cooked and spent most of our group time at dinner in the Rice Mill, which was a wonderful space to spread out and enjoy our time together. The outdoor patio also was lovely, and overlooked gorgeous grounds and a pond. There were birds, butterflies and flowers everywhere!
One of the last nights of our stay was our wedding anniversary. Gabriella offered to cater our celebration, and she and Nidia spent two days preparing our wonderful meal. She offered the use of the castle main room and patio, which she decorated with fresh-cuts flowers and candles. It was gorgeous! The food was delicious, and Tomasz made lovely prosecco cocktails. Gabriella typically does not cater events, so this was a very generous gesture - especially because she had hurt her back earlier that week and was in considerable pain. Grazie, Gabriella!
Nidia was wonderful, and our main contact at the Rice Mill. She is a warm, caring and helpful person. She helped make our stay memorable - especially because she bonded so closely with my mother-in-law, who grew up in Trieste and was returning to this region for the first time in more than 50 years.
Castello Strassoldo is a very special place, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to other travelers. You will experience a true piece of Italy, with genuine, warm, hospitality.
Truly special and spectacular!
We spent 5 glorious days at La Pileria in Strassoldo and can't speak highly enough about the whole experience. Having left there a week ago, we haven't stopped talking about it. The grounds of the Castello are breathtaking, the bedrooms and living space at La Pileria were spacious, comfortable and beautifully appointed, the coffee and breakfasts that were served every morning were delicious, and most of all our wonderful hosts, Gabriella and the lovely Needia were so warm and welcoming. My parents (both in their 70's and seasoned travelers) commented that Strassoldo is one of the most incredible places they have ever been - a truly once in a lifetime experience - though we very much hope to return one day to share with other friends and family. Thank you to Gabriella for making such a wonderful and unique property available and thank you to Needia for taking such good care of us during our stay.
thank you for your great review!
We were thrilled to meet you and your lovely family and also that we felt the positive atmosphere of the castle and enjoyed the natural, historical and culinary attractions the area has to offer.
Hoping to have the pleasure to see you back one day, I am sending a big hug from Strassoldo
BEAUTIFUL HISTORIAL CASTLE
The Rice Mill and Castle complex was incredibly beautiful, the photos don't do it justice. The old stonework, beams, furnishings take you back into time. The property is newly renovated very well maintained and exceptionally clean. The service was excellent, we arrived late in the evening and asked if they could provide breakfast food for the following morning, we woke up to an amazing spread of Italian meats, cheese, bakery goods, cereals, etc. Would highly recommend staying and would return if every in that part of Italy again. Thank you Gabriella and your staff for making our stay memorable!
thank you so much for your lovely review!
It was lovely to meet you all and I'm so happy you loved the rice mill and noticed the attention put in the renovation and all those details.
A big hug from sunny Strassoldo:-)
What a wonderful and serene place! Everything has been renovated with great care. The rooms are very large and beautifully decorated; each room has its own bathroom with modern appliances. The breakfast buffet was set very nicely, the food was delicious, and we appreciated the nice porcelain and table covers. It's all done very tastefully. The whole tower has a powerful AC. You notice it only when you realize how pleasantly cool it is inside while it's 40 C outside. And then the gardens, those wonderful gardens with a little stream going through it! It is truly a place to feel like royalty.
Wonderful stay in an amazing location
We enjoyed our stay very much, everything was perfect: the rooms in the rice mill, the surrounding gardens, the people - everything just great!
thank you very much for you nice review.
I'm happy you enjoyed your stay in our home and hope to see you back.
Many warm regards from sunny Strassoldo
A home away from home!
Our stay at the Rice Mill more than exceeded our expectations. The Castile de Strassoldo was a beautiful place. The gardens were spectacular. We are very thankful to Nedea who greeted us and baked us a delicious loaf of bread in the morning (not to mention teaching our daughter how to make it). We had a very relaxing time while at the Castle. There was so much to explore in the area (wineries, beaches, ruins, etc). We loved visiting the local supermarket each morning. We hope to return some day. Thank you to Gabrielle for sharing her home with us!
It was lovely to have you as our guests and I am so happy that you felt at home. That's how it should be as we want guests to feel well and enjoy the home and gardens as well and the many local attractions.
Many warm regards to you and your wonderful family
Visit two very near Unesco cities:
It takes of 10 minutes to reach the ancient Roman colony of Aquileia, where you must absolutely visit the beautiful basilica and port.
You can then have an ice-cream or a cappuccino with a slice of cake at the Pasticceria Al Mosaico, that is just in front.
Also the renaissance star-shaped fortress of Palmanova is very near (6 km). It was There you should visit the military museum and the underground tunnels.
Not far from Strassoldo there is also Villa Manin, residence to the last Doge of Venice, where there are often exhibitions.
