          Car: Recommended

          La Vicinia is placed in the heart of the complex of the castle of Strassoldo di Sopra (Upper castle of Strassoldo), one of the oldest castles of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, the lovely most north-eastern region of Italy, bordering with Austria, Slovenia, the Adriatic sea and Veneto.

          The small and quiet village of Strassoldo is in the spring-water area of the green Friulan lowlands, in a very central position, enabling guests to easily visit the area's main attractions, such as:

          - Venice (1 hour's drive)

          - The sun-island of Grado and its golden beach (20 minutes' drive).

          Once the Austrian Empire's Summer resort, the place has an amazing historical center and here in addition to breathing the 'Mitteleuropean' flair of the past you can dive into the Adriatic sea and/or make a boat tours in the marvelous lagoon with its typical fishermen huts.

          - The ancient Roman colony of Aquileia (15 minutes' drive), with its amazing basilica, lovely floor mosaics, excavations, port, criptas and museum

          - The star-shaped fortress of Palmanova (5 minutes' drive), with its green hills and tunnels

          - the ancient Longobard Duchy of Cividale del Friuli (20 minutes' drive) with its beautiful small temple, dome, Devil's bridge and museum. This little town is surrounded by lovely green hills crossed by the blue-green Natisone river where there are several nice restaurants to try.

          The relaxing atmosphere of the place invites the guests to tank energy, enjoy the lovely gardens full of old trees and flowers, make nice walks in the flourishing countryside (partially on private grounds) and bike tours through the nearby cute little rural villages.

          For shopping fans there's an interesting outlet with 90 brand shops only 5 minutes drive from the castle.

          Last but not least, the region is famous for its good food combining Austrian and Slovenian flavors near to the borders and a variety of dishes from fragrant cheese and potato dishes to excellent fresh fish near to the coast.

          Not to mention the wines, among which the white wines of the Collio area are Worldwide renown and the red wines are placing themselves in the highest ranks of the sector.

           

          Owner info

          About the owner: Gabriella Williams di Strassoldo grew up between England, German, Austria and Italy and speaks fluent English, Italian, German and French. She lives between Wien (A) and Strassoldo (I) and manages her family estate, the castle of Strassoldo di Sopra, which belongs to the counts of Strassoldo since a thousand years. When she took over the task from her mother many years ago the castle was in a very bad condition and Gabriella put an enormous effort in restoring it, bringing it back to its ancient flair. In the last years she also restored three ancient stone houses, turning them into high quality holiday homes: La Vicinia (former administrative centre), Casa Rambaldo and Casa Artuico (former guards' houses).

          Why the Owner Chose Lignano Sabbiadoro:
          The holiday homes at the castle of Strassoldo di Sopra offer the unique opportunity to breathe the flair of an ancient private castle and at the same time to visit a beautiful and still not well known area of Italy, ranging from high mountains, through rolling hills, green plains to rock and sand beaches.

          The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
          La Vicinia and the other two holiday homes of the castle of Strassoldo di Sopra are very well furnished and have every comfort. Each has its own private garden and access of the castle's main garden.
