My husband and I did an 18 day vacation in Italy and France this past September. We spent two nights at Fattoria Lischeto. We chose Fattoria Lischeto because of its location, great food reviews on agristurismo websites and because their website made the place look fabulous. We fully expected this place to be amazing. I started crying when we got there because it was such a disappointment.
This place is a working farm. I guess I didn’t realize that meant that there would be dogs and cats with matted fur running all over the property. I also didn’t expect all of the flies. Flies landed on myself and my food constantly. It was gross.
The room was very simple. It was dark and sparse. The bedding was very simple. There were two scratchy sandpaper bath towels. There was a small kitchenette but no soap or dish towels. There was a broken fan in our room and the staff did not replace it after 3 requests on the first night. We had a very hot first overnight. We requested again on the second day for the fan to be replaced and they did replace it. The upside to the room was that I thought it was clean and it had hot water.
The pool seemed nice, but we didn’t bring pool towels. The staff didn’t seem happy to see us, they lacked in customer service.
The dinners that we ate each night were AWESOME! The wine was DELICIOUS. The fantastic people that we met at the agriturismo definitely made up for the disappointing accommodations. The sunsets were beautiful.
Their website advertises hot air balloon rides. I emailed them about two weeks before our arrival and asked if we could have this arranged. They never replied to my email.
I would not recommend this place. I am sorry. Even though in the end we had a delightful time because we met such nice people that were staying there and because the evening meal was so delicious, it didn’t make up for the lack of hospitality and the very simple accommodations.
