“unique”
Reviewed September 19, 2009

I first stayed at Castello di Frino 20 years ago and have always dreamt of going back. It's the sort of place you can't forget...for various reasons!
The position is enchanting, the views superb and the castle is full of charm. It's like sleeping in a museum! The rooms are enormous and furnished with antiques. Large windows offer magnificent views of the lake.Bathrooms are very basic. The lounge and dining room are comfortable and pleasant. The food was good and a pleasure to take breakfast in the garden.
Unfortunately the swimming pool was out of order and probably has been for quite some time. The only television on the premises was also broken ( not a huge problem). The general feeling was of neglect or perhaps lack of resources, the rooms in the dependence are very disappointing and far too expensive ( same price as in the castle) but in spite of everything I would definately reccommend Castello di Frino to anyone looking for an unusual place to stay, bursting in by gone day atmosphere.
