This was a very special stay, and something quite different from the norm for Australians like us. Schloss Paschbach is a "castle" dating from the 13th century, but now a comfortable, modern B&B that retains many of its historical features, including public rooms hardly changed from the sixteenth century. It also has associations with the classical pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, who's piano is kept there. Located in Appiano, in the beautiful Strada del Vino, near Bolzano, the Schloss is set amid orchards and vineyards, with distant views to the Dolomites. It is a perfect base for walking in the local area and touring further afield in South Tyrol. We stayed three nights, but could easily have spent a week.
Our gracious host was very welcoming and concerned for our welfare, giving us a tour of the house and recommendations for restaurants, walks and local attractions. A plentiful and delicious buffet breakfast is set out in the breakfast room, but most guests prefer to eat in the lovely garden when the weather permits. Guests can use the public rooms.There is plenty of parking and free WiFi. Security is good, and guests are given their own set of keys to enter at night.
Our double room was very comfortable, but there is no point in reviewing this in detail as it is soon to be renovated into a suite.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Schloss Paschbach as a quality B&B.
