What do the company retreat organizers have to say?

“Stefanie and Rasmus did everything they could to make sure the planning of our annual company trip was easy and exciting. In the months leading up to the event we were in regular contact, discussing the logistics of food, room allocation and transport options but also the more fun aspects of parties, pizza making and activities! On a Wednesday evening in June, 70 of us arrived at Ristonchi at sunset, and were greeted by live music, beautiful lights and a BBQ feast. It set the tone perfectly for the following few days, in which we spent the daytimes working as a company on our business and team building in the beautiful surroundings of the castle, and the evenings either relaxing by the pool, making our own pizza or partying in the rave cave! On our final day we split off to do activities including a trip to Florence, kayaking, cycling and wine tasting, all of which were within easy access of the castle. Ristonchi is a magical place and we were all so happy to have had it as the inspirational backdrop to our business planning!”

"I can highly recommend you visit Ristonchi and if you’re thinking about having an event there, I can assure you will not be disappointed at all, more likely you’ll be amazed at the wonderful service you will get. We decided to have our sales meeting for our with 50 participants at Ristonchi and the experience was absolutely amazing!  All that we asked for was delivered and if we had any new ideas or requests on the spot, they were executed once again with excellence. The staff were so welcoming and embraced us with all their heart, a true family feeling. Last but not least - the wonderful & very tasty food, we had a make our own pizza night and people are still talking about the pizzas they made in the castle's stone oven."
Ksenia, Marketing Coordinator at Coopervision

”Thank you for a great time, great food and easy service. All the planning from rooms, food, transportation and even a guided tour in Florence was all done through Ristonchi. Our participants had a nice experience and enjoyed staying in an ancient medieval castle.”
