I travel enough - mainly on business - that it takes quite a lot to make me gush about a hotel. This one does it. First, it looks good. It's well-designed, the main building being around an open courtyard, and the raised swimming pool with its white walls contributes to a feeling of light and air. The art in the public rooms is carefully chosen, and more interesting that you usually find in a hotel. Most of the rooms, including ours, are in single-storey buildings. Ours was spacious, very well laid-out, with bathroom, separate toilet and storage/dressing room grouped together at one end, and with a small courtyard at the front.
As soon as you walk in to breakfast, there is an immediate sense of freshness and, indeed, there is a very high standard of fresh produce, much of it local. We noted on a couple of occasions that cakes were still warm from the oven. The restaurant is very good, with a short menu that changes daily - necessarily, because it would be a substantial journey to find an alternative.
The standard of service and hospitality is excellent, and we should mention especially the sommelier, Amadeo, who has a real passion for the wines of the region, especially Primitivo, and who communicates it wonderfully, especially at the tastings he organises.
Overall, a delight.More
