Castiglione Experience

  • 4 out of 5
This apartment, although, rustic, was everything we needed. A beautiful roof terrace, a large double bedroom, lounge, kitchen and views to die for!. The position in town was perfect and I would recommend a stay here for families and couples alike. The only negative comment may be that the steps up to the town and in the apartment itself may cause a problem for anyone who is infirm and the second bedroom in the loft space is too far from the very separate double bedroom for any families with small children. It was perfect for us though and we would certainly book again. The owner was very friendly and the information she gave to us was very useful and honest.

Owner's Response: good to have such a nice reaction.it is a remarkable flat .I do actually say in the blurb that it is not suitable for children,because of the layout.I am always prepared to descibe everything in detail as it is such an unusual flat:it definately has the "wow" factor.we do want visitors to be completely happy

A one-off apartment in a superb location

  • 5 out of 5
The listing here gives an accurate impression of this quirky and unusual apartment in the atmospheric lakeside medieval walled town. (Note that the map location on the HomeAway listing is not correct)
The communication with the owner was very friendly and not at all formal. The facilities in the apartment are good and it's not one of those places where all the useful items left behind by previous visitors are cleaned-out! What attracted us to this property over the many self-catering options in the area, was the possibility of being able to walk to restaurants and enjoy an evening stroll without having to drive. That said, although having a car is not essential, it is certainly an advantage as it makes it much easier to visit the many picturesque towns in the vicinity. You can park for free close by.
The shops in the old town are mostly tourist-oriented selling local meats, cheese, wines and, bizzarely, ladies lingerie!
There are a couple of well-stocked supermarkets within walking distance in the newer part of the town.
Being mid-September, it wasn't busy and you could stroll into any of the local restaurants for a meal in the evening - the ones we tried were mostly excellent.
I would recommend hiring bikes from the bike-shop on the road that goes to the ex-airport and then you can cycle to Passignano around the lake on a flat cycle path - a great day out.
There are a few points that should be taken into account.
The apartment is not purpose-built. It's created from rooms and spaces in the old walls, so the floors are a bit uneven. There are two flights of quite steep stone steps up from street level so people with mobility issues would have difficulties. The terrace is great, but involves another flight of steps. Also, the shower room is quite small and you have to be a bit flexible.
You are above the main street in a working town, so there may be early morning noises, the market being set-up etc. Also, right by the street entrance is a popular wine-bar that attracts a young, mostly Italian crowd who smoke furiously and talk even more furiously on the street below.
Lastly, the main bedroom is on the same level as the apartment but entered through a separate lockable door right opposite the main apartment door. It would be difficult to listen-out for children if they were in the second bedroom.
We didn't find any of these factors to be a problem for us, and we'd have no hesitation in staying again if we return to this area.

Summer 2010

  • 5 out of 5
We've been there in summer 2010. A really great apartment, you're in the middle of everything offered in Castiglione del Lago and the beach is not far away. In the evenings we enjoyed the short distance to restaurants and cultural events, in the morning we had breakfast on the terrace with a great view over the lake. The apartment is well equipped and the contact with the owner was easy. We recommended this apartment to friends, because it's so unique. Will be back next year!

Great Vacation Location

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 6-nights here and loved every minute. Used it as a base for day-trips to hilltop villages in Tuscany and Umbria -- San Gimignano to Assisi. Restaurants and shops are within the walled city where apartment is located, with larger food, fuel and electronics shops within 1/2 mile; internet cafe within 150-meters (in the larger city outside the wall). The surrounding villages are famous for their ham, cheese and wine, so there is always something new to try. Mobile coverage was fine at the apartment and on the road, but sometimes spotty in the narrow streets and stone buildings of villages we visited.

We're in the "over 55" class, so the stairs were a nuisance at first, but the view from the bedroom windows and rooftop terrace were well worth it ! Being able to leave the luggage in one for a week, as opposed to daily hotel changes, made this a very enjoyable road trip. Owner has a bookcase full of brochures and tourist books in the living room, and the TV provided nightly access to news and entertainment.

We drove up from Rome (Fumicino) in about 90-minutes; Florence is about an hour north, but we were looking for small-town experiences and didn't get that far on this trip. Weather in mid-May was warm, but not hot, and we saw only 2-3 hours of bad weather all week.

We will use this apartment again !!
