Stunning castle in remote location
If you want to stay in an authentic 10th century castle, this is place is worth renting for a couple of days. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the road is; it’s concrete most of the way and only the last mile or less is a very narrow dirt road.
The castle is impressive in its antiquity and also in how updated it is. The rooms are furnished with antiques and the bathrooms and kitchen are updated and very functional. The beds are reasonably comfortable and there are plenty of sofas and a large dining table.
My husband and I stayed in the Tower apartment and the biggest asset is the balcony with its sweeping view, which is adjacent to the kitchen.
There were a few drawbacks:
- We assumed the tower bedroom would be cool but unfortunately there was no evening breeze at all when we were there at the end of July and the room was very warm.
- Although the place was impeccably clean, we had a lot of flies in the kitchen area and the tower bedroom which was above the kitchen.
- During the afternoon and evening the castle was incredibly quiet and peaceful but in the middle of the night the neighbor’s dogs barked at something for quite a long while.
Marc, the owner, is very responsive and helpful, and his hospitality and competence with English is another big positive in staying in this special location.
