A amazing property

By Ruth Foulshaw on 21-Aug-2019

An amazing property in beautiful surroundings We had a wonderful week staying at Montecastello. The property itself is easy to get to but beautifully quiet, in a lovely garden with stunning views across the mountains. It's all very well kept and we enjoyed the many different sitting and eating areas the house offers and of course the pool! Ally and Martin are very welcoming and made our stay feel very easy. The boat trip we went on with Martin was a real highlight and both he and Ally were always very helpful with local advice. I would highly recommend Montecastello for a holiday to suit all ages, whether you enjoy walking, spending time on the coast, wish to explore the amazing local area or just relax at a very special property.

Majestic and Mesmerising Montecastello

By Angela on 17-Sep-2018

Majestic and Mesmerising Montecastello Tim and i spent a glorious week at Montecastello, first week of September. It very much lived up to the pictures online but they do not seem to be able to truly capture how absolutely gorgeous this castle and location is . It truly was something very special. From the surrounding bushland and animals to the incredibly unique and friendly, welcoming localities that are a very close drive. The castle is exceptionally well equipped and comfortable with anything else required at an easy drive. Lunch at the nearby Agriturismo Montagna Verde was to die for - only wished we had time to have eaten at the others too. Martin and Ally were fantastic hosts with exceptional pre, during and post communication and assistance. The day out on the boat was fabulous too !!!! thank you for a wonderful stay.
