(1.Kh4? ... 9.Rg7? fails because of a white reflex to mate)

6-fold repetition of a 7-move tempo gain maneuvre. The positioning
of the black Rose on c4 (and temporarily on a5) determines the
white king's march to h8. Mate by a double check by a single piece
Rose: (1,2) Octagonal Rider (extents the move of the Knight on a circular path e.g. a4-b6-d7-f6-g4-f2-d1-b2 or a4-c5-e4-f2).

Since the bK can move to a5, but not to b4, I presume that the white piece on c3 is a pawn, not a bishop.

Nice castle, by the way. I had never heard of it before seeing the pictures.

Yes, Kostas - on c3 is a wP. I will fix it when come back at home.
About the castle - it is not an old castle from the history. It is builded for last 15 years. It's name is "In love with the wind" and is a good place for relax and photos.
