Proprietario maleducato. Non adatto ai bambini. The owner is a very bad person. It isn't a good idea to go there with children I think.

It's fun to visit this crazy architectural fantasy, and worth the trip - if you're in the area - to see the original monastery building alone. The owner goes on and on and some people find him offensive (if you have Italian-speaking children you might...More
