If you are looking at the Castello di Mugnana thinking that this can't be for real, well yes it is real! We spent 4 nights there recently and it was truly amazing. If you are into history, architecture, medieval, etc. and scenery and quiet, this place is definitely for you. You will need a car as there is no public transportation. Upon arrival we were greeted by Lucia. She was super nice and showed us how to operate all of the gates, lights, and doors to gain access to our particular room. After that we were left alone. The caretakers live right at the entrance but we didn't need anything. We stayed in the Double Room (Large). This was the room just to the upper left of the front gate. I called it the guard house as we had to traverse the wall above the gate to get to it. Since you have to cross a gravel courtyard, grass, and narrow stone steps to this room, heavy bags are a bit of a challenge because the wheels don't work well with the terrain. In the end it is well worth it and rewarding. Even though this room is not in the tower, the views are still amazing and the room is HUGE. There is a small town about 3 miles away with a Carrefour Express market to get supplies and groceries. You are in the country so English is not spoken too well or at all in these areas. The people were pleasant and helpful even though of our language barrier. Overall we had a fantastic time and will definitely stay here again when in the area.
