-- ACCOMMODATION DESCRIPTION
Access from the outside of the castle.
2nd floor: living-room with dining area, kitchen corner and 2 sofa-beds, double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower.

We had such an amazing time! The castle was so wonderful and the staff
that we did come in contact with were all so great! We spent one
morning just walking the castle grounds; exploring and admiring the
beauty! Our room was wonderful! We only had to pay for heat the first
night, as there was no one to turn ours off when we arrived at 9:30pm.
The temperture in the room without the heat was perfect! We like the
We will definitely be returning to Italy. We would like to return to
Montegufoni. The surrounding areas were great! Everyone we ran into in
the cafes and coop's were so nice and welcoming.
