I cannot say enough about this hotel. It was my first experience in an extravagantly beautiful hotel, and although I have traveled fairly extensively since then I have not been able to find a place that begins to compare.
It really feels like you've escaped to Tuscany. The gardens are picturesque, the building is made to look aged on the outside, and there is a beautiful pool and fountain. It is quiet, peaceful, and incredibly romantic.
The rooms are extraordinary. The bathroom is luxurious, gleaming gold colours everywhere, and a shower that felt like rain (and big enough for a party, should you like to throw one). A nice special touch was a fresh rose that was placed in a vase by the sink. The beds were very comfortable, also important to note.
The staff were friendly and professional, and willing to help at a moment's notice. The breakfast buffet was the best I've ever had, everything freshly prepared and croissants to die for.
I have been dreaming about this place ever since I left it. I cannot wait to return. I've spent thousands trying to recreate the feeling it inspired within me, but this hotel, although much cheaper than others, beats them all hands down.
