Lets start off by saying the location is central for sightseeing whilst the views from the rooms and patio are stunning, the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing, the buildings are amazing and the quality of the food is good.
The things that let the hotel down are minor in comparison but annoying. The fact that the bug screen is torn and won't stay down is irritating but easily overcome. The service at the bar and restaurant is slow and unreliable which is not too great an issue as long as you expect it and keep reminding staff what you want. The pool needs some attention, some tiles are missing and could be cleaned better.
All in all, this is a very good hotel which with a bit of effort could be superb.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Relais Il Canalicchio stands like a small gem inset into the summit of a hill. The picturesque town built around the Castello di Poggio, which dates to the 10th-11th centuries, dominates the town with its imposing tower and a splendid little church close to the vineyards and olive groves at the centre of the lush Umbrian countryside. The luxury Relais has almost completely remodeled and enclosed the town of Canalicchio, an intact and resplendent oasis of peace, where only the twittering of birds interrupts the relaxing stillness. Inside, the historic and rural origins of the place are obvious; it still has its apparent castle-like structure and boasts an enormous and exquisite millstone, the old press and some lovely arches, evoking the enchanting atmosphere and charm of times gone by. ... more less
