Beautiful hotel and extremely nice staff. They were extremely accommodating. We had a corner room with amazing ocean views. The elevator was an experience in itself. Can't wait to go back! Don't forget to try the pasta! Delicious and fresh food.

My third trip to this wonderful hotel. If I'm honest, I'm torn between telling everyone how great it is and trying to keep this hotel my secret hideaway. The hotel staff never disappoint and recognise you even after a year. The food, even for a vegetarian, is first class and nothing is too much trouble for the restaurant team -... More

Isn't it fantastic that in this day and age hotels like the Grand Hotel San Michele still exist. This almost hidden Calabrian resort is an oasis. How lucky we were that Travelsphere use it as their base for holidays in Calabria. An elegant elderly lady of a building yet superbly comfortable and compliant with 21st century needs. The extensive grounds,... More

The most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in, overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea and along the coast to the mountains beyond. A gracious house with a generous owner, Ornella, who shared her love of the place with us and took us round the estate to show us her produce and vineyards, tasting included! All the food was delicious using their... More

A warm welcome awaits at this amazing hotel. Rooms are comfortable, the lounge is huge and some of the furniture is like something out of a stately home. Breakfast on the terrace every morning, a view of Stromboli on one day. The staff were very friendly and offered alternatives to the set menu if required. The food was varied, plentiful... More

I have just returned to the UK after staying at this amazing hotel. You feel as though you are being welcomed into someone's home with genuine affection. The rooms are simply furnished but very clean. Food excellent - with fruit, vegetables and wine coming from their own farm in the grounds. I am certainly thinking about returning to this hotel...

I had a week at this hotel in September and found it to be a unique place. The hotel still feels like the home it once was, with a spacious lounge and large terraces. My room was simply furnished with genuinely old furniture, not reproductions, and was spotlessly clean. The food was excellent, with fruit, vegetables and wine coming from... More

I was a bit dubious but my husband found this place. It is a renovated manor with 44 hectares of farmland from which they make their own jellies and a lot of the food for the restaurant. We had breakfast and dinner on the patio - great views. An unexpected surprise was the beach - down the path and an... More

Having just returned from a week of total relaxation at this wonderful hotel, I feel completely blissed out. The beach, the pool, the rooms, the food, all fabulous.
