We had booked this trip before leaving the UK, but on our chosen morning, there was torrential rain, with thunder and lightening. We emailed to cancel, and rebooked for two days later. The weather wasn't particularly good then, but at least it was dry. It...More

A real highlight to visit this family home and garden and to hear the story of the early and present occupation and families. It was a structured visit but I didn't feel rushed and it was pleasant to linger on the terrace with wine, oil...More

Took a half day boat trip to Isola del Garda, and was taken aback by the beauty of the place - Italian and English garden, massive terraces, and in the centre the highly impressive home of the Carvazza family - a Venetian neo-Gothic style villa,...More

Came here for a wedding and thought the venue, staff and service was excellent. Food was delicious and good choice of wine. The only thing that let this venue down is inside the building (its creepy, lots of dolls and prams). Otherwise the exterior is...More
