My husband(king) & our friends(court) enjoyed a fabulous time at Castello di Strasssoldo. Our "court" could only stay one week, but my king & I enjoyed ourselves for two weeks at the end of May - first of June, 2014. Gabriella, Nidia, the entire staff were all very nice. It is self-catering so we were on our own, but they were there to help, if necessary. The views from our lovely porch were wonderful, the castle grounds fabulous. I found this to be one of the best equipped rental homes we have rented. Parking is very handy, also. Plenty of hangers, bathroom storage space, and one of the best equipped kitchens (not that we cooked much!). There is a dishwasher & clothes washing machine. We were able to dry clothes on the rack. We even hung them outside on a tree limb while we sat and read our books. Very relaxing! There are many beautiful towns, interesting museums, churches in the area. You will find maps & information on a table in the living area. I recommend Udine & Aquileia. The Rainbow restaurant around the corner was great. The weather was wonderful - like San Diego weather! We would highly recommend the Castle & the Friuli Venezia Giulia area. La Subida is worth a trip for Sat. or Sun. lunch, if you do not like to drive the roads at night.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A private home with a few bed and breakfast rooms in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, not far from the beach (19 km) and from Venice (90km): the castle of Strassoldo di Sopra. This castle belongs to the counts of Strassoldo-Graffemberg since more than a thousand years. The 4 double bed and breakfast rooms are in the ancient mill and are spacious and nicely furnished with hand painted furniture. There is free wireless internet connection. In the morning a rich buffet breakfast is served on the ground-floor or in the garden in case of good weather. The cute little village of Strassoldo developed around the ancient castle of Strassoldo, which was already mentioned in a document dating back to 564. The village took its name from the counts of Strassoldo. The village is in the green lowlands of #Friuli-Venezia Giulia, not far from the #beach of Grado (20 minute drive). It takes only 60 minutes to get to #Venice and #Austria. 35 Minutes to get to Trieste and Slovenia, 20 min. To get to Udine, 15 minutes to get to the Roman colony of Aquileia. There are many more lovely sites to visit as well as excellent restaurants and wineries. The place has the flair that only a private home rich in family memories and an ancient tradition can give. ... more less
