Loved everything about the castle except for the A/C and bug situation which is something I checked on prior to renting based on TripAdvisor reviews. The available A/C in the bedrooms is VERY misleading. We were happy to pay for this service - but, they did not cool at all. Hardly any air flow - looked like the filters were long overdue for a change. Perhaps that was the issue? There were no screens in the apartment, so we eventually bought some bug spray and relied on Bug spray and cold showers to make it through each night. We were there for 9 days; did not have a restful night's sleep during our entire stay. The nights were miserable to say the least. They shouldn't charge renters for this service. Frankly, they should yank the units out and install screens and be honest with renters from the start. Had we known what to expect from the beginning, we would've packed some bug spray and managed our expectations. As it stands, we feel like we were taken advantage of on this front. I haven't received an itemized list of final charges, but I'm sure this was part of our final bill. One other recommendation - communicate with your guests on wonderful amenities like the grocery delivery service. We stumbled across this option mid-trip after spending a lot of time and money procuring groceries on the way to the castle from the airport and hauling them along with our luggage when we checked in. Wish we had known about the grocery delivery prior. Other than the A/C issue, the staff was friendly, we enjoyed several meals at the restaurant and the castle/views were beautiful.

il nostro appartamento si trovava nella dependance del castello, posto meraviglioso. L'appartamento è composto da 3 camere matrimoniali di cui una con bagno in camera e le altre due con bagno esterno (tutti e tre ristrutturati recentemente e con doccia ). al piano sopra c'è un'altra stanza senza porta con due letti singoli.

Il proprietario della villa non lo abbiamo mai visto, per fortuna il custode Rodrigo ha fatto il possibile per farci avere la legna ed accedere il camino. Quella casa era gelida pur avendo richiesto l'accensione dei termosifoni con anticipo ( considerando il fatto che il riscaldamento si paga a parte 25 € al giorno). Siamo riusciti a scaldarla quando ormai era il momento di andare via.

Non c'è il forno ma solo il microonde, è presenta la lavastoviglie senza detersivo e sale.

Il custode veramente disponibile in tutto.

è stato comunque un bel soggiorno che ci ha permesso anche di visitare Firenze con soli 30 minuti di macchina.

Very nice villa with enough room for a larger group. Castle amenities were a big plus - concierge services, good food at the restaurant.
