Wonderful experience at the castle. We really enjoyed our stay here and it was absolutely a highlight of our holiday. If you are staying here though, renting a car is a must. It was very difficult to get around anywhere. We did hire ebikes which was loads of fun, however a car would've been much better!
Better than expected.
The people managing this location were excellent with all the assistance you could ever require. Their maintenance man even rescued a valued ring that slipped off a finger and went down the drain, by taking apart the drain to retrieve it.
The food in the restaurant is exactly what you would expect from a restaurant in this area. We ate at many local places and all were top notch.
Our room (La Grotta) was even more spectacular than expected. Not only would I recommend this place, but I have since convinced some friends to stay here and also in the area since our experience was more than expected.
Very nice and original appartment, a bit dark however and with rather poor furniture. Local staff is friendly and efficient. View and environment are superb.
Truly an experience that took our party of 4 back 5 centuries. The facilities are marvelous in that their reconstruction captures the artwork and thereby the essence of 15th and 16 century lifestyles in Tuscany. The introduction of modern facilities in no way counters the beauty of the castle, but on the contrary enhances the experience of today's contemporary traveler, who may just bicycle to the castle in order to fully breathe in the countryside, but upon arrival, would like to shower and dine at his/her convenience.
