What a wonderful find this place is!
Having spent a week in a villa in Tuscany, we wanted somewhere for a couple of nights so we could visit Venice before going home.
From the friendly check-in (no English spoken but we managed!) to the delightful friendly girl serving breakfast (who spoke great English and was a huge help with our visit to Venice), staying here was a wonderful experience. Our rooms were enormous with palatial bathrooms too and the children felt as if we were staying in a palace from a bygone age! Breakfast was very good quality and the girl on duty in the breakfast room made delicious fresh cappuccinos for us all. She also helped sort out our ferry to Venice and cheap safe parking at the little ferry terminal. The crossing to Venice was quick and easy and very scenic. With the last boat back at about 10.30pm we were able to spend a very full day sightseeing and eating - perfect!
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we really enjoyed our 2 night stay.
There were 11 travelling in our group - 2 families with children, and a grandmother - and we stayed in 4 rooms. We would have no hesitation in staying here again and would highly recommend the Villa Ducale to others. Thank you so much to the lovely staff.
