Why we love this package:
"The property is one of the most incredible places we have stayed in while we were in Italy, with a very nice swimming pool and garden. It is very centrally situated and the very efficient and friendly reception staff will give you suggestions of nearby places to visit and how to get there. The staff all speak very good English. Also try out the restaurant as their great food and menu changes daily." -Dana
"A wonderful destination and stay had in the Castle. In total there were 11 in the family who stayed in 4 different rooms (all which were terrific), and a super time was by all. The views, weather, swimming pool, locality, gardens and history of the place was just amazing, the restaurant was also excellent. We all rated it a 10 out of 10, and agreed to return in the very near future." -Robert
