Our family stayed at Hotel Villa Carlotta for many days. The rooms were all unique and well appointed. Many of the rooms have a balcony with an incredible view of the Ionian Sea. The setting is beautiful, but the clincher for me was the authentic kindness of the staff. I have never stayed in a place where the staff gives...

The last time (4 years ago) we stayed at Villa Ducale (the sister hotel), which we LOVED! We wanted to stay closer to town this time and thus picked Villa Carlotta - you...

My family stayed at the Villa Carlotta for a week during spring break/easter holiday. The hotel was beautiful. It is a charming boutique hotel in an excellent location. Just a short walk to the Corso and all major attractions. The staff could not have been more accommodating and always went the extra mile to make sure our needs were met....

Our stay at the Villa Carlotta was absolutely perfect. Our garden suite was very comfortable with a beautiful sunny balcony to relax on, the breakfast was delicious and served outdoors with a breathtaking view, but most importantly the staff bent over backwards to be gracious and accommodating hosts. We were travelling with our 10 month old baby, and they had...

Dear BellaL, thank you very much for your very positive review and the high mark you gave us ! I apologize for the noise you heard; during your stay there were massive road works due to the upcoming G7 - the seventh most important politicians in the world will be on May 26th - so it was certainly disturbing.
