Pozzuolo chateau / country house description

The castle of Strassoldo di Sopra is still the private home of the counts of Strassoldo who have totally and finely restored three beautiful stone homes forming part of the castle's borgo:

- La Vicinia (sleeps 4 people. 2 double room each with private bathroom)
- Casa Rambaldo (sleeps 4 people. 1 double room + a loft with a double bed)
- Casa Artuico (sleeps 3. 1 double bedroom + a single bed behind a separé)

On the other side of the castle there is the ancient rice mill (Pileria del riso), a big building (500 sqm) which has 4 vast double rooms which are rented as bed and breakfast rooms (150 € per night/room including breakfast).

The whole rice mill can also be rented as a holiday home for a maximum 8 people occupation, for a minimum of 1 week.

Each of these charming homes has its own private garden, guaranteeing the guests' privacy, with access on the castle's main beautiful garden.

They are provided with every comfort and are very nicely furnished.

The complex of the Castle of Strassoldo di Sopra is formed by the main building, where the family Strassoldo still lives, which is surrounded by a series of beautiful stone buildings in olden times used as guards' houses, administrative and judicial centre, stables, artisans' house, granaries, archives, rice mill and the ancient tower.

The main buillding is connected by an arch to the church of St. Nikolaus, formerly the castle's chapel, where catholic masses are held on Sundays, on one side and to the ancient tower on the other side.

The setting is really beautiful and the whole castle complex is surrounded by lovely gardens, crossed by spring-water streams and rivers.

Strassoldo is a precious gem of a lovely and still unknown region which is not overrun by tourists. In fact, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, has many important historical sites, a lovely nature with many different wonderful landscapes ranging from high mountains, through rolling hills and green plains to rock or sand beaches.

The castle is situated in a very central position from where it is easy to reach all these attractions.
Only to mention a few, #Venice is reachable in 1 hour's drive, the ancient Roman colony of Aquileia (the second biggest colony of Rome) is reachable in 10 minutes, the golden beach of Grado in 20 minutes, the beautiful town of Udine in 30 minutes, the marvelous Adriatic Gulf with the town/port of Trieste in 38 minutes, Slovenia in 35 minutes and Austria in 60 minutes.
The guests of the castle's holiday homes, can relax, make very nice walks in the Friulian countryside, go biking through cute little rural villages, go swimming in the nearby Adriatic sea and make nice day excursions to many interesting regional sites and towns.

The region also offers the possibility to taste excellent #Friulan wines and food.

                              The castle of Strassoldo di Sopra is hidden in the green countryside of the spring-water area of Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

                              It is still the private home to the counts of Strassoldo, who built it more than a thousand years ago. Recently the owners have restored 3 lovely self catering ancient stone houses, each one with its own private garden and access on the castle’s main garden:

                              Casa La Vicinia (4 person occupation, with possibility to add 2 single beds)

                              Casa Artuico (2 person occupation, with possibility to use a single bed placed behind a separé)

                              Casa Rambaldo (4 person occupation)

                              Bed & Breakfast accommodation is also offered on the other side of the castle (4 rooms in the rice mill and 2 suites in the tower).

                              The main building is in the centre of the castle's 'borgo'. Walking through the entrance arch you first see the 'Guards' houses' on the right, then 'La Vicinia' (former administrative centre) in these three buildings there are the Holiday homes now. Afterwards there is a small arched bridge connecting the main building to the church of St. Nikolaus. Behind the church there are the stables, artisans' houses, granaries and archives.

                              At the end of the main building there is the ancient tower (2 B&B suites) and afterwards the rice mill (4 B&B rooms).

                              Standing here you can see a big garden on the left side (ancient orchard) and another one on the right side (the castle's main garden).

                              After the rice mill there is a little channe, which is the border with the twin castle of Strassoldo di Sotto, also belonging to the family of the counts of Strassoldo.

                              A jewel of the castle are it’s romantic gardens, fully of old trees, nice flowers and surrounded by spring-water streams.

                              In Strassoldo the ground is never colder than 13 Celsius degrees and this has a beneficial influence on nature and allows many exotic species to grow in the area – from old Chinese rose bushes to palm trees. Canadian maple trees bring Indian Summer colors in Friuli.

                              Strassoldo is the perfect place to dive into the flair of a region not overrun by tourists and discover the attractions and an incredible variety of landscapes concentrated in a small area, starting from high mountains, to rolling hills, green plains and rock or sand beaches.

                              The location offers a romantic and relaxing holiday in contact with nature and history. The castle complex is quiet and is in the middle of a small village where there are a little supermarket, a post office, a bank and a hairdresser, so exiting the castle complex you can feel the flair of a typical Friulan rural centre. Only 3 minutes on foot you can reach a bistro where you can eat great grilled meat, cheese and vegetables. Not much futher there are two rural restaurants with typical Friulan food. In the near surroundings there are many good restaurants and wineries, where you can taste some of the World’s best wines.

                              The castle is in a central position for those who want to discover the beautiful Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region and all the nearby attractions:

                              The castle’s guests may rest, make nice walks, go biking in the great countryside, swim in the nearby Adriatic sea, make great boat tours in the Laguna or to Trieste, Istria, Lignano and other places.
