Castello Strassoldo is a true gem! We rented the Rice Mill and Casa la Vicinia for 10 members of our family and friends to stay for a week. It was a special week because we were bringing my mother-in-law back to Trieste for the first time since she left when she was 17 years old - which was more than 50 years ago. Our vacation week also included our wedding anniversary.
The entire property is just gorgeous. It is beautifully maintained, and the grounds are full of flowers, ponds and birds. All of our bedrooms were beautifully appointed, spacious, and very comfortable. Everyone in our group raved about their rooms! The Rice Mill's living room and kitchen were lovely as well, and gave us ample room to cook, make cocktails, and share big dinners and lots of conversation. Because of some changes to people's schedules, we had only one guest use Casa la Vicinia for one night, but she loved it and it was gorgeous inside. When the other room in the casa wasn't able to be used as a bedroom due to changes in the local housing codes, Gabriella generously offered the castle tower room, which also had a beautiful sitting room and an enormous bathroom with walk-in shower. Our two guests who stayed there loved it!
Gabriella and her staff were thoughtful, generous, attentive and truly lovely. Nidia was our main contact, and she was exceptionally kind and helpful throughout our entire week. Gabriella and Nidia generously offered to cook and present our anniversary dinner party, which took them two days to prepare. It was held in the castle, and it looked so beautiful! The food was delicious, and Tomasz prepared the best cocktails. It was a very special evening and we were very grateful for their thoughtful attention to all the details - down to the beautiful fresh cut flowers from the garden.
All of this was even more remarkable given the fact that Gabriella had thrown her back out that week and was in a lot of pain. She did everything possible to make our stay unique and memorable.
I cannot thank Gabriella, Nidia, and Tomasz enough for their hospitality and their generosity. Grazie!
Wir waren in Casa Artuico zu viert (meine 17jährige Tochter, ihre gleichaltrige Freundin, unserer großer Hund und ich). Wir waren uns alle einig: an einem so schönen Ort waren wir noch selten in unserem Leben, die Wohnung hatte alles, was das Herz begehrt, um sich dort wohlzufühlen, auch einmal etwas zu kochen (bis hin zum Grill im Garten!), und ist wunderschön und liebevoll eingerichtet. Und der Garten ist ein Traum, wie auch die ganze Schlossanlage. Wir wären sehr gern länger geblieben und kommen bestimmt wieder.
Die gesamte Umgebung bietet so viel an Kultur, Natur, Landschaft und Meer, dass man ganz viele Ausflüge machen kann, ohne sich zu langweilen. Aber das war eigentlich nicht die Hauptsache - in Strassoldo selbst war es einfach wunderschön und erholsam - auch mit der sehr freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Betreuung und Unterstützung von Frau Williams di Strassoldo und ihren Mitarbeitern.
Wir haben hier schon allen Freunden und Bekannten davon vorgeschwärmt - hoffentlich nicht zu viel, damit für uns nächstes Jahr auch noch ein Termin frei bleibt.
