I was really excited about this one but now I’m not so sure.
It’s certainly photogenic.
It’s certainly a castle with a lot of history.
It’s “authentic” – parts of it haven’t been updated for 300 years.
And of course the amazing view…
So what’s wrong with it?
Well, it’s just so… medieval.
I found a few rooms with high ceilings which gives me some hope. The others are so claustrophobic.
With some proper Games of Thrones luxury furniture, carpets and decorations, it could be cozy. But I’m afraid the winters would be brutal.
I need a place that will be comfortable year round so we can write and work without our fingers freezing off.
Plus, the nearest airport is at least an hour away and in Italy, so you’d have to arrive, then cross the border.
For all those reasons I think, while at first impressive, this property might soon get tiring, and not be conducive to real creative productivity. But at 3million EU, it’s still within the realm of possibility.
What do you think?
Would you pay to stay here for a month as a life experience? Or would you rather have a comfortable, 5star chateau?
