WOW- what an amazing experience. Staying in a beautiful castle with amazing views in all directions was spectacular. The apartment located on the grounds was very well equipped and the bedrooms/baths were very nice. Amazing to see all the grapes on the vines and the olive trees full. Our family of 3 had a great time and hope to be back!
We had a wonderful time at this property. Our accommodations were as expected - nothing too fancy but everything we needed. The area was great - the views spectacular. The check-in process was hassle-free and all of the people there were very friendly. The food at the restaurant was great. If we have one recommendation for improvement it is regarding the chlorination of the pool. It was a very clean and refreshing pool, however the water smelled very strongly of bleach (i.e. laundry bleach) rather than chlorine or bromine that might be used in a pool. Not a big deal - everything else was sublime!
