“Relaxing Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

POSITIVES:

Warm welcome

Stayed in the Merion room which was very beautiful and spacious

Good local info given by Lorenzo

Beautiful pool surrounded by olive trees

Quiet surroundings

Covered car port - very useful for keeping car cool in soaring temperatures
Lovely toiletries and towels


NIGGLES:

Access to hotel covered by gravel which makes pulling a suitcase on wheels impossible. Fortunately we were able to carry ours, but a less abled person would have to ask for help, which I am sure the hotel staff would provide.

There was a jacuzzi bath in our room with an attached shower head but nowhere on the wall to attach it to, so showers had to be taken sitting down in the bath. Disappointing and inconvenient considering the high standard of the room and hotel in general.

The music piped around the hotel and pool we felt was not in keeping with the ambiance of the hotel - classical music may have been better suited than the pop music played whilst we were there.

Room Tip: The Merion room has a seating / dining area, small kitchen, huge bedroom and good sized bathroom but...

Lovely hotel, beautiful gardens, terrific pool and great staff!
If you want a touch of class and sophistication in beautiful surroundings with great views, then this is the place.
There are lots of unexpected special touches, e.g. the tortoises in the sunken garden, the private jacuzzi & sauna, the beautiful pool, orchard and even the luminous stars on the bedroom ceiling!

about this enchanting place. From Francesca at the desk (and the others at the desk, whose names I didn't take down--Silvio? Arianna?), who answered questions of all kinds, found out about taxis and doctors, brought me an espresso when I arrived at the hotel a day early, to the spectacular room I had, with its spacious bathroom, to the gardens, to the magnificent pool, to the breakfasts that made lunch not even a thought, to the bookshelf (and Arianna let me borrow one to take home until I have finished it), to the lovely, restful views from every angle, everything was like a pleasant dream. Oh. And the ceiling soothes you to sleep with some stars.....
The only reason I am leaving off a rating for "location" is that people should know (but probably most do) that, without a car, getting around is difficult. But there is an enchanting little town a short walk from the hotel, with everything you might need. Just the touring is curtailed.....But this is the kind of hotel you might never want to leave anyway!

Room Tip: I didn't see any rooms other than mine (well, a quick peek at another nice one, whose name I don...

Thank you! Thank you for your kind words, thank you for choosing our villa and thank you for being so kind during your stay.
We agree with you that the best way to move freely in the area is by car if you don't want to take a taxi.
We hope you will come back for the festival next year,

Hope your summer visitors appreciate as much as we did.

We were staying nearby in Tuoro, and were recommended to try the restaurant located in the hotel I Caprici di Merion.

The garden setting where we dined was perfect, and it was also a perfect evening.
The ambience was just beautiful.
The place is quite secluded, but not difficult to find.
The waiter who looked after us was excellent, and very attentive but not intrusive.

Menu was extensive and it was difficult to make a choice from such a large selection.
A little sparkling wine was served initially, then we ordered a lovely bottle of Umbria white which was excellent, the waiter knew his stuff.
Our food was excellent also.We finished off with one desert to share which was a Merangue, with strawberries cream and caramalised sugar on top, perfect!

An entrée of Asparagus Flan with Prawns was also excellent, as was the potatoe Flan with cream and truffle.
If you are ever staying in or near Tuoro Sul Tresimano I recommend this establishment.

Overall a fantastic hotel - beautiful rooms, clean, lovely gardens, excellent on site spa, top class restaurant and friendly and knowledgable staff. Highly recommended. Slightly more expensive than other hotels nearby, but worth the extra cost.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night and found the room spacious with a mini kitchen area. The staff very helpful.
The restaurant was excellent, good food and wine and we considered it good value for money.
We were staying at the hotel the night before completing the purchase of a property in a nearby village. On our next visit to Tuscany - early March 2013, we spent another evening at the restaurant as we enjoyed the meal on our first visit so much.
