What a fabulous location and building to experience our first holiday in Italy. The apartments away from the hotel had their own pool, were spacious and everything we would have wanted. The receptionist who showed us to our room explained how the air conditioning worked which appeared to have caused previous occupants problems, there is a knack to,it working! All the staff of the hotel were brilliant, the views during breakfast and the evening meal second to non. However with such a setting and promise of things to come the food failed to live up to expectations; breakfast was disappointing although you could get by, it was the evening meal which set the challenge! It was interesting to see if the menu description matched the dish of choice. We were surprised that the local restaurant only a 100 yards away could use fresh seasonal produce and local meats to great effect whilst the hotel appeared to show no imagination. A great pity as everything else is brilliant. We would certainly come again but book BandB.
- 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
