COngratulations to the entire staff at the hotel for making our 3 night stay last week the highlight of our Italy trip. I had been in contact with the property to set up an unusual request to actually stomp grapes. While I am sure the staff thought us crazy, Marion and her team made it happen complete with champagne. Not an easy task as most of the harvest was completed mid-may. Watching the sun go down while toasting our birthdays doing this completely silly thing demonstrated the hotels attntion to detail. I would like to thank the entire staff - everyone we came in contact with were polite, courteous, charming and eager to please. A special thanks to Annalise who went above and beyond - this young lady is a credit to the entire hospitality industry. It is no surprise that we met several couples who returned year after year. So many special moments.
A couple of comments:
- you definately should have a car to get around. Seems an obvious notation but if you dont taxis can be expensive.
-Do plan to rent vespas for a day
- the restaurant is fantastic and very pricey. You can have less substantial fare in the bar area.
- if possible book a jr suite with terrace
Altogether a very, very special place in an area with lots of beautiful properties. We would go back in a heatbeat.
