From the distance, Marsiliana might look like a castle, but as you reach the top of the hill and drive through the gate the feeling is more that of an informal hamlet. To the left is the main house, a charming building dating from the 18th century.
Architecturally conceived as a ‚twin-building' with two identical main doors, staircases, living rooms and kitchens, the house was easily divided. One part has now been adapted to be rented out; the other part is lived in by the owners.
In front of the house a large table under a wysteria covered pergola is where you will be having your meals at the sound of the fountain. The large garden is terraced and planted with palm, orange and olive trees.
Down the hill 1 km from the house you will find a bar for your daily capuccino, a small supermarket, a bank and post office.
The nearest beach is at 14 km.

We enjoyed two wonderful weeks in the historical rooms of the castle Marsiliana Massimo and would like to say that we felt the stay as very nice and impressive.
To live in the castle gave us the feeling, that peoples have lived, have worked and have written history in this marvellous rooms. Yes, we could travel back in time what on the one hand was exciting and in the other hand romantic and thrilling. The ambience, the love of nature, the pleasant rest and the nice pool allowed a restful vacation and also made our 25 wedding anniversary to an unforgettable experience. With pleasure we think back to this nice time and we can imagine very well to come again. We say thank you for all what you have done for us.

Marsiliana……… a culinary dream
A Culinary dream for kids and adults……………..
To Sabina, the estate office, and all the staff,
Thank you sooo, soooo much for making all this come true.
My husband and I wanted to celebrate the childrens birthdays in a very special way, give them the experience of a lifetime, a different one, a special one. Thats how we decided to come to Castello di Marsiliana for one week last fall. The cooking course for kids was organized superbly, Gnocchi di patate was their highets hit, once home they showed the rest of our family just how to mix eggs flower salt and potatoes to get the right italian flavour, sage and olive oil were a discovery.
The pizza making has represented a real challenge we all tucked into it like there were no tomorrow, Jasper (age 15) won the contest with a fantastic “pizza quattro stagioni” with all the toppings he could find.
Please say thank you to Jolanda who was so patient and efficient with the housekeeping, feeding us every evening on delicious bruschettas, soups and super deserts.
Renting a Castle is not simple, and Marsiliana with its hilltop view and all the people working for you have made a dream come true, we shall never forget.
Thanks thanks thanks,
The Balliords Family (Ireland )
