- Attractive market town full of elegant Renaissance palaces. The nearby castle of Verrucola is on the banks of the river with red-roofed houses clustered around the castle keep. Geraniums spill from window boxes and the gardens are full of courgette, beans, tomatoesWritten 6 September 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Would you visit a pharmacy in the UK for fun? Doubt it.
But this place, with it's room of potions and powders, jars and drawers, it's panelled glory and cool floors sells a special tonic, said to have restorative qualities, made by magic monks a million years ago. I exaggerate, but the bottles are cool and you can only get it here folks. Italians take their "digestivos" very seriously indeed. China might just be the "tonic" you've been looking for.Written 4 September 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- In the middle of nowhere (well, the village of Gragnola in the Fivizzano district of Italy) perched high atop an incredible hill surrounded by dense natural forest sits an incredible fortress type restored castle. What a find! An absolute gem. Treat it like your home, says Andrea Facchinato, the resident custodial manager. Your home? As if owning a castle feels normal...
It’s a delight... 9 bedrooms with en suite facilities complete this property along with battlements, rooftop hideaways, it’s own church, halls and lounges. The food? Local produce, magnificently served. It’s the kind of place a Hollywood celebrity would rent out in its entirety and have a few friends over. Without the Hollywood pricing! The rooms, peak season, are no more expensive than an average London hotel. The food isn’t cheap, but is sensational and therefore considering it’s quality, the setting and the service... it’s absolutely priced fairly and appropriately. We loved it. There’s a 14th century buried Knight, inscriptions on the walls and a castle tour which is absorbing...
It felt like, dare I say it...we owned a castle...
We stayed one night, on a scheduled travel trip around the region, and should have stayed a week. It’s that good. Best tip? Pack very light. You don’t want to drag your heavy case to the top of your private turret. Yes: you read that right.Written 4 July 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The castle and medieval village are really worthwile visiting. But don't make an appoint to visit the castle. You just get to see the entrance hall for €4 pp. The lady who let us in was very nice, although some explanation about the castle and exhibition would have been welcome.
The son of the owners looked like a spoiled brat. Didn't even know it was a Friday and quarreling in Italian with the housekeeper. Apparantly he didn't realize that tourist spmetimes also speak Italian or he was just plain ignorant.Written 17 July 2015
