We stayed in Casa Leone with young children (younger 10 months, older almost 3 years).
The owner was very helpful when we prepared our stay in Castiglione del Lago. She sent us a throrough welcome booklet which e.g. gave tips on which cafes and restaurants to visit. She also was very active communicator and I could feel safe that someone is really waiting for us to arrive. Also, during our stay she helped us to find a self service laundry.
The apartment is spacious and it has good kitchen supplies, sharp knives were a surprise - usually it is quite hard to cut tomatoes in rental apartments.
We were travelling in early April and the weather was still a bit chilly. Also inside it was a bit chilly but the blankets in the beds were extra warm! We could not turn on the heat to the radiators (but never mentioned it to the owner since we were not that cold - maybe she could have done something for it).
The younger child was crawling around the apartment and we noticed that the floors were not super tidy. They were ok if you are not sitting or crawling on the floor but not shining.
One thing a bit surprised us: There was no grocery store inside the historic center but we had to go a bit outside with the car to buy us food supplies. There were a lot of restaurants, cafeterias and ice crean shops but if you would like to make the food yourself, be prepared to walk a bit further.
Also, we did not manage get the wi-fi access to work. There is only the city wi-fi available for use and at the time of our visit it seemed not to work. This is of course not something that the owner can affect.
Recommend a visit to the museum and a walk inside the wall to go and see the fortress.
Overall: Recommend the apartment
