I had been meaning to write a review after our first visit last year, but all reviews are so glowing and effusive, I felt there was nothing new to add. This is still the case: everyone who goes to Villa Janto loves it, but I still want to add to the great reviews it rightly receives.
This was our second visit to Villa Janto. It was like coming back to see old friends, with hugs and kisses all round. It's a small hotel, and the Castagna family make up half of the staff that run the place. And we were delighted to see the rest of the staff hadn't changed either since last year. Everyone is so friendly, and works so hard to ensure that we had a good stay.
The hotel grounds are compact, but immaculately kept. Everywhere gets swept clean and is kept spotlessly tidy, both outside and inside the hotel.
Normally we just stay for bed and breakfast and try the local restaurants in the evening. Don't bother, Villa Janto serves the best food you will find anywhere, and in vast quantities, with Michele keen to heap ever more helpings on to your plate. If you don't firmly wave him away, you will be full by the end of the first course, with lots more deliciousness still to come......
If you come looking for room service, or uniformed barmen brandishing cocktail shakers, or top-hatted doormen flagging down taxis etc, this may not be the place for you. Its not that kind of place But if you are of the mindset that thinks "at these prices it can't be any good", you would be denying yourself a wonderful experience.
After another week at Villa Janto, I felt standards had certainly been maintained, and everything was as good as last year. I left fully refreshed, relaxed, very well fed, and I look forward to coming back soon. If it isn't a luxury Hotel, I would call it a Happy Hotel, which, in my book, is as good as it gets. Oh, and, first-time visitors: take them up on their offer of transport. You probably won't find it on your own......
