Country House Parco Ducale
Most of the rooms are upstairs and there are a few in the annex as well. Besides the six double rooms, there are five suites with kitchenettes, ideal for families. Traditional decor, such as stone floors and wooden ceiling beams, enhance the rooms. All rooms have private bath, refrigerator, and air conditioning (very welcome in summer) and heating.
The country house is set in spacious grounds with a pool, garden, picnic tables, play area, and parking. It's really the best of both worlds - in a country setting with easy access to town.
What to See and Do Near the Parco Ducale
