The minute you step into the Hotel foyer you are overwhelmed with the wonderful service you get from Luigi (Manager) and his team. The room was absolutely gorgeous - with views to die for.

Just to start. Food on both nights was superb. The chef came out to greet us to find out likes/ dislikes. There is a spa but unfortunately we were not advised to reserve ahead so were unable to use the facilities. My friends had an issue with the decor which looks like late 60's. I did not think it was... More

First of all the positive: the staff was very friendly and helpfull. Arriving at 17.30h we still had to wait 1 hour before our room was ready. The "Villa" was a large building (a block) and NOT the Tuscan Villa seen on every photo and what you are expecting. Also the interior decoration of the corridor and rooms do remember... More
