Chamonix, France13 contributions4 helpful votes
Excellent hotel, great service and staff - and luckily we were in a modernised room (the older ones don't get great reviews). Lots to do with the kids, fabulous 24.5metre (annoyingly though not 25m!) swimming pool for me to train in, great spa, lovely food and lots of it homegrown, great tennis, really good all round and of course expensive to go with it. But worth it.

Seldom does one find a hotel or resort where the standard of service, food and attention to detail exceed expectation. Castello del Sole is extremely unique in this respect. I shall be returning with my wife and the first opportunity.

although we prefer to stay in small houses with privacy the castello offers you the chance to find your place in its vast grounds. we stayed in a beautiful large suite with views of the lake behind the trees. very friendly staff and hosts. breakfast was very nice although a little crowded due to the many guests. the private lakeshore is of course great, too.

As regular travellers to the best properties in the world we were bowled over by the quality of the service from beginning to end. Little details like remembering our names from the beginning showed the passion for service. Dinner in both the Michelin 1 starred restaurant (thanks to Sergio) and the daily restaurant were exceptional. Fabulous setting. The bedroom was well thought out and in perfect condition. Book the michelin restaurant well before arrival if you are a foody as it books out early.
