On a whim and a prayer Doug and I for our 30th Wedding Anniversary decided to go for it all.
She really wanted to see some of old architecture that only Italy and Greece have to offer. Little did we know that Castello di Leonina Relais had so much more to offer us. The stay was out of our dreams. The menu was authentically delicious while the rooms offered a level of luxury we felt spoiled to enjoy.
Even though the evening dinners were somewhat loud, we would often escape the culture shock and sit by the pool or take a long evening walk in the rolling country side.
It was definitely a high point of our vacation, Doug and I can not say enough how much we enjoyed ourselves. I would like to thank all the staff who were very polite and made our stay wonderful. We both hope to return again if at all possible.
