we have just returned from a short 7 night break at the Casa Barca hotel. It is a superb hotel, professionally but discretely managed. It has that certain style; a modern elegance if you like.
The room had a nice size balcony and was beautifully fitted; the bathroom was superb. Through out our stay the servicing of the room was great. Also a nice touch was being shown the room refrigerator and being told to use it for whatever we liked, including drinks bought in the local shops....what a change from other places!! The breakfasts were, again, wonderful with a wide choice. There is a great mini gym, a steam room , a sauna all available for no extra cost.
If there was one slight criticism it would be the firmness of the beds; too firm for me but thats only a minor thing.
If going with Crystal or Thomson holidays ( they are one and the same) I would suggest NOT being tempted by organised tours to Venice and around the lake. Venice is swamped by cruise ship customers and around the lake is something i would suggest you research and arrange yourself. We found them pretty disappointing. All in all thoroughly recommend Casa Barca
