This B&B and its' surrounding quaint almost medieval village looks like it came off a well maintained movie set. My wife and I stayed in one of the top floor rooms and the view of the surrounding countryside from the window was "storybook" and unbelievably serene.
I was struck by the spaciousness of the castle B&B. Our room was huge, very clean and supremely quiet. The staircase leading down to the common and breakfast areas was grand, certainly fitting as I would imagine it to be for an 11th century castle. The building is exceptionally well maintained and I felt as if we were staying in an almost museum-like atmosphere.
Gioia and her family's artwork were from a variety of cultures are in abundance and perfectly position to add to the decor of the castle. Gioia's mother even has an art shop out back.
I believe the rooms were all occupied during our stay but you never would know it due to the spaciousness and solidity of the castle. About 10 of the guests gatherd for the suberb breakfast Gioia served.
An amazing place!
