We, a family of 5, had a very nice stay at this appartment in Castiglione del Lago from 31st July until 17th of August. Long before our holiday started we had a good contact by whatsapp with Claudia. She even organised the beds as we requested, very friendly! Also during our stay she was available at all times for all our questions, and she made suggestions to us as well.
The house is quite big, the three bedrooms are large. More important: Cleaning was excellent! The two bathrooms could use some modernisation however, but they are well equipped. There is even a washing machine which we used frequently. When the seat of one of the toilets broke down Claudia immediately organised a plumber to repair this, our compliments for this.
The kitchen is quite small and gets quite hot while you are cooking. But...since going out for dinner is quite cheap in Italy we did that many times. The refrigerator is big enough but the door doesn't close too well. Coffee: you can either use the real italian coffee maker or the modern nespresso. (A watercooker would be nice)
The environment of the appartment looks very safe. The front door has many and good locks ;-) and you also need a key for the entrance door.
One of the neighbours takes care of the garden and is very friendly, we could ask him for any help as well. You will find several supermarkets nearby the house.
If you step outside the house there is a park for kids to play football and a playground for smaller kids. Plenty of parking space (free) as well.
The village itself is really picturesque. To walk to the historic centre takes about 10 minutes. At the end there are some stairs to climb. The castle is really nice to visit. In the main street you will find many restaurants, some of them with panoramic view upon the lake.
The lake: there is a free beach as well, you can use the shade of the trees. The water is ok to swim in but there are some waterplants. Great fun to hire a pedal boat. The kids enjoyed jumping into the water from that boat.
We made day trips to Assisi, The Marmore Waterfalls (impressive!), Perugia, Orvieto and a two day trip to the Vesuvius and Pompei. The toughest one of us even rented a bike in the village and did a trip of 100 km around the lake. (15 euros for a day, a sort of mountainbike but a very good one). So: we would really recommend the appartment. For sure the price is ok for what you will get! Thank you Claudia and family! Regards Michel, Susanne & David, Aranka and Aron
De woning is eenvoudig maar netjes en goed onderhouden. De eigenaren zijn zeer behulpzaam. De tuin en het zwembad zijn beide plaatsen om goed tot rust te kunnen komen. Het zwembad ligt er strak bij, de tuin is heerlijk sfeervol. In de nabije omgeving is genoeg te doen, in Castiglione del Lago zijn genoeg restaurantjes. Even naar Castiglione lopen is er eigenlijk niet bij, daarvoor ligt het net te ver buiten Castiglione. Zeker een aanrader.
