This was our first stay at Hotel Villa Abbazia in the small town of Follina in the foothills of the Italian Alps. This Relais and Chateaux property is very elegant and provides a high level of service in both the hotel and restaurant.
Our stay was in May of 2010 in the Magnolia Suite with a private terrace overlooking the gardens. The room began with a large entry area with an amore for our clothes and love seat. The main bedroom was very large with a bed sofa and large table. Fresh flowers and fruits were provided. The bathroom was nice sized with a small window that opened to let fresh air in. The motor driven shutters closed up the room every night so sleeping in was easy!
It is our experience that what separates good hotels from “great” properties is the service. The Hotel Villa Abbazia distanced it self from the competition by providing excellent service! Always Giulio provided a friendly smile and advice on the day’s activities. Securing a tour at a Prosecco Winery or how best to get back to the hotel from Cortina in the Italian Alps (think spiral staircase with tunnels for your car!) without revealing what surprise was in store!
Breakfast in an adjacent area to the lobby of the hotel was wonderful and traditional European in nature.
Dinning in the hotel restaurant was one of the trips highlights. The food was impeccably prepared with a level of detail sophistication and taste that beguiles this small town. I would have thought I was in Milan or Venice! We had three wonderful meals in the dinning room with equally wonderful wines!
My wife and I highly recommend this property. If you are planning on staying in the Veneto then stay at Hotel Villa Abbazia!
