Beautiful hotel. We stayed here august 2013, which we thought would be peak season but it was surprisingly private and felt quiet. The rooms are converted beautifully, but are not huge due to it not being a purpose built property. the bathroom was incredible. The views are to die for. The balconies in most rooms are not huge (i.e. you can not sit out on them) as a agin the building is not purpose built but they are lovely to stand and have a drink on and admire the view. the are many other private places you can sit outside with a drink other than you balcony! I think more expensive rooms have larger balconies. The pool area is lovely but the pool is not huge, but it is not a pool made to swim lengths in but to relax and take in the amazing surroundings. The restaurant food is very nice, although so are most restaurants in Italy!! Breakfast is wonderful, sat out on the terrace. This hotel is very expensive but does feel like a wonderful treat.
