We stayed for a week in late September and had high hopes for a very special holiday. Sadly that wasn't to be. Yes it is in a beautiful location and the building is amazing but I have to echo the negatives. Ofcourse you need a car that goes without saying. The rooms are shabby most people we spoke to asked to change for one reason or another. We were initially given a room suffering from noise problems only to be offered a room in the country suites which we declined mainly due to the poor state of the grounds that were very neglected. Our third attempt was a room at the back of the hotel which had a small Juliet verandah. We accepted this knowing that the general standard of all the rooms was probably very similar. The food was not the best but ok. I would say that the best meal of the week was the one we cooked ourselves during the cookery lesson. Yes it was nearing the end of the season but you would expect the swimming pools to be usable one was a beautiful shade of green and closed down the other was just not clean such a shame. The spa well even if was free I doubt we have would have used it. Positives yes of course beautiful building, relaxing atmosphere great staff and some lovely towns to visit nearby. Would we go back sadly not. I so wish this review could have been more positive
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Relais Il Canalicchio stands like a small gem inset into the summit of a hill. The picturesque town built around the Castello di Poggio, which dates to the 10th-11th centuries, dominates the town with its imposing tower and a splendid little church close to the vineyards and olive groves at the centre of the lush Umbrian countryside. The luxury Relais has almost completely remodeled and enclosed the town of Canalicchio, an intact and resplendent oasis of peace, where only the twittering of birds interrupts the relaxing stillness. Inside, the historic and rural origins of the place are obvious; it still has its apparent castle-like structure and boasts an enormous and exquisite millstone, the old press and some lovely arches, evoking the enchanting atmosphere and charm of times gone by. ... more less
