The Swimming Pool
The room /apartment was extremely dark. There was nowhere to sit outside on an evening which made it very uncomfortable heat wise as the kitchen area was also the dining and living area. There were few utensils and the cooker was outdated as well as being unsafe as one of the hobs kept going out although the gas was continuous. Did not meet expectations.
The location was excellent and the outside facilities (pool, riding stables) were very good. The room on the two latter nights in the apartment was well equipped although the bed was very unfomfortable and had seen better days.
The map downloaded from Booking.com was completely wrong and showed the hotel nearly 20 miles north of where it actually was. We were checked in by the owners wife who disappeared on holiday 20 mins later. 4 hours later we were told that builders were moving into the main hotel and we would have to move to an apartment on the other side of the site (5kms away) for the nights 3 and 4 - but this was not mentioned when we checked in. The hotel was a long way from the nearest town and we were really forced to eat at the hotel rather than local restaurants which is our preference in Italy and the hotel food was average at best. We mentioned that my wife was vegetarian and were told this was OK but at no time was food without meat made available
lots of outdoor experience possibilities. the lower restaurant was more like eating at someone's house.
the road access could be improved
Staff is doing more than they have to, especially Barbara who was always ready to help with information and suggestions.
