I always check Tripadvisor when planning trips, but rarely report back, but this time I feel I must, although I secretly fear that it will become so popular getting back with be difficult! The property is everything is appears to be on the website, and better once there (regardless of the roads which get easier each drive!). We stayed in the Giardino Suite and were totally impressed with style and spaciousness of the room, and the view was amazing into the valley. It is the perfect place to get away from it all and unwind in a peaceful and stunning locale. Alec is the perfect host, charming and gracious and very accomodating to any requests. We ate at Bellaugello the two nights that meals were being prepared and they were delicious and it was the perfect opportunity to chat or just listen to other guests conversations around the table, a great time. On the other night we made a nice dinner in our kitchenette and ate outdoors on the patio, terrific! Also, like others, need to mention the pool area, so nicely done and the views from the infinity pool are amazing. I didn't want to leave after our 3 nights were over but know that we'll get back again one day soon, and for a longer stay.
Alec, we saw on your blog that Milo passed away a few days after our visit, very sorry to read that.
We will be back!
