We are proud to inform you that we use an eco-friendly water purification thanks to Alligator Systems (installed summer 2016). This new system uses water ionisation techniques and reduces the need for chemical use by up to 80%. It is perfect for children and allergy sufferers and produces crystal clear water.Der Swimming Pool ist von Mai bis Oktober geöffnet. Badeplatz und Wasser werden täglich mit einem zusätzlichen Ionisator gereinigt und laufend von der Behörde kontrolliert. Nachts und bei schlechtem, kühlem Wetter sorgt eine Abdeckplane dafür, dass das Wasser nicht so stark auskühlt.
The tennis court is free for use for our guests. The court with a synthetic court is within the Castle grounds and is popular in the cooler morning and late afternoon hours. During your stay, it is possible to obtain private tennis lessons by our professional teacher Mr. Tommaso Lupo.
