The castle, pool and surrounding areas were lovely and very peaceful. The pool area was one of the nicest I’ve seen.
The restaurant was quite disappointing however.
Breakfast was nice and there was quite a lot of choice, the bacon and eggs weren't great but everything else was nice so it wasn't an issue.
Lunch / evening meal - the food we had was really nice however there was a limited choice (same menu for lunch and on an evening and only 5 choices for each course). We stayed for seven nights so ending up going into Rome to eat more than we had planned or we'd have just ended up eating the same meals each night.
Also they were very inflexible in the restaurant, there were no side dishes which spoilt the meals a bit for me, just some vegetables would have been fine. Also they refused to cook the meat anything but rare/medium rare, even when we sent a meal back twice. I realise it isn’t their culture to cook meat that way but isn't 'the customer always right?' apparently not.
It was fairly easy to get into Rome by train (and very cheap).
Overall a lovely experience
