Staying at Villa Crespi is one of life's unforgettable experiences. We arrived for a 3 day package to be told we had been upgraded to a suite- result!.
The place is stunning at every turn and just a 5 minute walk to Orta San Guilio.
Dinner was out of this world all 3 nights and the staff in the restaurant were knowledgable and helpful, The sommelier was particularly good and steered me to cheaper end of the wine list local wines rather than just selling the expensive stuff.
The cheese trolleys (there are 2) are a spectacle in themselves and the petit fours made on the premises which arrive after desert are impossible to refuse: oh, the little cream horns were magical.
I'd recommend that you arrive after a period of fasting so that you can enjoy the sumptuous dinners to their full potential.
Nothing is perfect. It is expensive, but I didn't feel ripped off. The service in the garden was sporadic at best.
