We had a very good time. The castle in terms of location and authenticity was fantastic...

There are elements that are a bit basic, but we worked around them and after all, we were staying in a little bit of rural Italian history! Berenice and her team were really friendly, helpful and laid back and the dinner was special... There were there limitations, but the location, the space and that little piece of Tuscan authenticity more than made up for it. After all, if it were completely modernised to a very high specification, it would also lose a lot of the charm as well as costing a lot more to rent. Berenice knows exactly the challenges and I think does a good job on the checks and balances. Although I had the occasional moan, I have had no real complaints and everyone had a great time and the castle massively contributed to it. My only observation would be a more formal pre stay document which doesn’t have to be more than a couple of pages of key information. We would also like to thank you for all your help and assistance. It was greatly appreciated.
