I used to come to Castello di Sammezzano when I was a child. We stayed here as a family – back then it used to be a wonderful hotel.
In the good old days
It was an amazing experience for me as a child to stay here. My parents usually left for work around the area during the day. The hotel always seemed empty: The staff had plenty of time to play with my siblings and me during the absence of our parents – all day long. So I used to know the place pretty well since the staff let us play “hide and seek” throughout the whole building: from the rooftop to the secret passageway that leads down towards the village.
And when I now see that this amazing place transformed into: It’s really such a pity!
