We received a private tour as part of the social program.at a meeting. The castle and grounds are quite beautiful and they are in the process of creating it to its former grandeur. The rooms which are finished contain beautiful frescoes, each telling a story...More

The castle - Vila is huge and really something special! Actualy it was built as vila, but the owners liked an idea of having castle, so they built up walls, but they are not really meant for serious defence. The history about family is interesting...More

Unlike some other visitors experience we had a really excellent guide who spoke in both italian and english. The tour was unhurried with plenty of time to view the fantastically fresh frescos which tell the family history ( both real and untrue!) Worth every euro.

Nice, but very bad information for tourist. The guides are very morivated, but for non Italian it's an absolute no-go

This castle has a long and interesting history with a small garden and park area. The tour of the castle rooms is guided and limited to the staterooms used by the family for entertaining. The fascinating thing here is that the family were mercenaries in...More

Thank you very much for visiting the castle, for your review and for your tips!

This could be an absolute gem of a visit. A wonderful palace castle nestling in the Eugenean Hills with superb frescos. Instead a tour group is rushed around inside with a garralous Italian-speaking guide giving little time to admire or study the frescos. Non-Italian speakers...More
