We stayed two nights, and wish we could have stayed for the week. What a wonderful place. We were greeted on arrival by a friendly face (despite our 1.30am arrival). The apartment was spotlessly clean, and fitted out with everything we needed. The place is set in beautiful surroundings with a vineyard up the hill, and mature trees around. The pool was a good size, with plenty of room for people to lie around without feeling cramped. It was also lovely and quiet (except for the croaking frogs and birdsong - which was absolutely glorious to hear when you've come to escape London for the weekend).
The owner was also very obliging, despite our language barriers, and showed us where to park, shop, and eat in the town. And he allowed us to stay by the pool beyond the check-out time on the last day, which was a nice little bonus.
While it's within walking distance to Castel, we drove up in 5 mins, and got our supplies from the local co-op, and visited the local bakery.
We're now trying to figure out how soon we can go back there!
