a traveler Canada
My adult daughter and I rented a 2-bedroom suite in the old farmhouse for a week. My daughter is an experienced rider and had three riding sessions (2 hacks and a dressage lesson) with skilled instructors and suitable horses. We had plenty of time to explore charming destinations like Orvieto, Pitigliamo and Montepulciano. The Castello's owners and staff members are warm and welcoming and the site itself is really special. The other guests were fun - an added pleasure - and you become like a family together. The food and wine were interesting and homey. Altogether a fabulous experience.
Our horse-holiday was perfect. All horses were well taken care of, and felt safe and stabile. The apartment was spacious, and we enjoyed large portions of home made italian cooking in the restaurant. The owner of the castle was particularly attentive to his guests, and kept us company through several dinners. All in all a truly amazing holiday experience. Would be more than happy to go back!
