I stayed in the castle with my family. By luck we were the only inhabitants, using 6 of the castles rooms. we were hosted beautifully, personally and attentively, but never felt crowded or fawned over. the staff arranged amazing events and outings for us with a moments notice and they were stellar. i am not a gusher, nor do i usually write travel reviews, but this was a perfect experience for us, and it would be for those who love italy and understand the way italian culture works - and actually want to feel immersed in it. if you want a 5 star hotel and lots of surly bellman, this isnt for you, if you want a lonely hilltop villa to piece your life back together, this isnt for you. if you want a comfortable castle and outbuildings, with a very flexible open sense of hospitality and amazing parts of italy within a 15 min drive - this is your place...
