We had guests that had traveled from New Zealand, United Kingdom,United States and South Africa. It could have been a very difficult task arranging... More

Family of 4 were well taken care of. Our Italian is not good but we managed to have a great conversation with the waiter who helped us a lot with wine choices to pair with the food. The food was excellent and coupled with the care that the staff took with us, lead us to rate this place 5 star.

I liked it. We'd just finished the manic sightseeing of Florence, Rome and Venice and this was just what I needed. Service good. A delightful afternoon relaxing by the pool followed by dinner at the hotel. Food was good, ambience great. Beautiful view over the valley. I'd stay there again.
