"Antonello and Christina are among the top ten loveliest people…"
Antonello and Christina are among the top ten loveliest people that I have ever met. My wife, Deborah, agrees.
The Castello di Santa Cristina, experience is more than delightful, and you will be well guided and taken care of from the moment of your arrival.
And, if you decide to let them feed you, you will be surrounded by friends and food so good that you will find yourself wanting to eat and talk simultaneously, which you will quickly learn how to manage.
I would go on, and on, but I don't want to make this so strong that you won't believe me.
Let me close by saying, simply, that you will love it. And please let them know that their American friends, transplanted from Washington, DC to Placitas, NM, send their very best. At the very least, you will get a bright smile from Christina and a knowing chuckle from Antonello.

"Santa Cristina is the perfect family holiday. Accommodation is tasteful…"
Santa Cristina is the perfect family holiday. Accommodation is tasteful and comfortable apartments/cottages in the grounds of a castle owned by the convivial Count Antonello Mancini Caterini and his wife, Cristina. The owners and the staff speak English and have great passion for their business.
The local countryside is stunningly beautiful - very green and rolling with that magical Italian light. The area is one of the least densely populated parts of Italy and yet is blessed by perfect volcanic lakes for swimming and boating.
There are 2 lovely swimming pools, a games room with table tennis, pool and table football and a tennis court.
For the more active there is a high quality riding establishment on site. For the novice rider the quality of instruction is excellent and for the more experienced rider the rides out are amongst the best in the world. Mountain bike hire is also available.
