“Very rude owner!!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

Although the location was very isolated from the beaches, I thought it seemed to be on first hand perfected relaxing agri hotel just off the highway route if you need to continue your travels. But relax we could, I was not even sitting down the swimming pool bed chair or the owner came to explain we cannot use the very big towels of the room at the pool. Its kind of a ripp off because you need to pay 3 euro extra (which should be included in this price category of hotels) although I agreed to pay, a bit later I refused the towel as it looked it to be full of white hair, since there is a big white dog arround the agrihotel. I mentioned this to the owner when I gave the towel back to owner at the reception, I could not believe my eyes but 10 min later (i was almost sleeping) the owner came very unrespectfully back again to give a plastic pamfletfull of swimming pool rules. And start again about this towel. When I mentioned him his unfriendly behaviour he got frustrated and shouted for the whole hotel, even the cleaning staff and other guests could hear. He became kind of agressive and tried to call me on appel. So we left the hotel all day and evening and never used the pool, just returned late at night to sleep! I have travelled alot in many 4&5 star hotels but never felt so childish and unrespectfully treaded in a hotel in my live. Be prepared for all the small rules and constant eyes arround the place or you get the owner on your back! Is this relaxing? No! I should never stay there again!

We booked the first part of our Italian holiday. We had 6 nights in this wonderfull country house. It has a central location for trips to Venice / Triest / Lignano etc. We enjoyed our stay here very much. The swimming pool is great always sun. The owners made an effort to give you a very warm welcome. Breakfast is good and varies from day to day a bit so this is good. We had the VIP room which we liked with the private balcony and also jacuzzi. Every day clean towels and a ready made bed. The country house doesn't supply diner but this is not a problem a lot of restaurants nearby. Owners are very well informed about the region so ask them for good restaurants there are plenty.

Room Tip: All rooms are different. We stayed in the VIP room. But the other rooms looked also very nice. Also...

Very well placed for Trieste Airport (40km) and in easy reach of popular beach resorts as well as Venice/Trieste/Aquilea etc.

Nice sized room with air conditioned rooms. Had to chase clean towels but otherwise very clean. Lovely pool. Only breakfast is available but there are plenty of nearby restaurants - some are tourist traps (cheap food and poor service) so shop around.

Helpful staff who speak good english.

a beautiful hotel set in a tranquil setting among vineyards.The suite we stayed in was beautiful; a mix of contemporary and traditional and very spacious. The pool was lovely - a welcome facility after a long drive. A long, narrow unmade road leads to the house but the owners are hoping for the council the resurface and have launched a petition for it to be done. The breakfast is very good- no bar or restaurant available after 8pm but some good restaurants nearby. Only 40 minutes from Marco Polo, Venice airport but motorway can become busy so best to use A (SS14) road and this only takes apx 1 hour and much more picturesque. Hotel is a little gem !!
