Six star service can be experienced in this A-located 13th century castle. Alexandra and Arthur welcomed us with great smiles, amazing breakfasts and lots of wood for our private fireplace in the massive yet cosy coach house. Spotlessly clean, well equipped kitchen, good mattresses, amazing surroundings, strong wifi. Kids played all day on the huge terrace and 5 hectare gardens with their well behaved dogs. Great walks near river Waal, great cheese and playground at nearby farm de Pippert, good food in the Dijkhuis. They deliver during lockdown at the castle. Here is the sixth star. We forgot some items, and the owners brought these a week later all the way back to Amsterdam. Rare to experience this degree of hospitality and humanity. We will be back.

Butifull litle kastle. I was there because off a garden fare. It was a perfect surrounding.

Mooie ruime kamers. Rustige plek. Paar parkeerplaatsen aanwezig. Gastvriendelijk ontvangst bij aankomst. Het is wel even zoeken waar je je moet 'melden'. Eventueel ontbijt bij te boeken. Kan ook met pin betalen.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
