Prices & Availability


Really great place! Set in it’s own secluded part of the castle we stayed here over new year (a group of 6 adults). the apartment is really nicely furnished, well equipped and was plenty big enough for six of us. The hot tub is a perfect way to relax after spending a day exploring the local countryside. I would highly recommend this place for a peaceful break and we would definitely return in the future.
