We spent only 1 night in the castel but I'da rather stayed for longer to endulge in one of the most loveliest garden ever.
Rooms are spacious as some city apartment and everything reminds you of the love and investment this brave family has put in restoring the castel. The adventure of their life is told by an interesting documentary and by the owner them selves.
It's officially an hotel (elevator included) but with the warmth of a house.
Nice (not to die for) breakfast extra from the room cost, and the useful suggestion of nearby owners'fav restaurants.
Again the garden! I know I have said it already but if you love Iris (what a collection) and roses, or equisetum (hourse tail) and Columbine flowers, you can't miss it.
