How to Get There
The spa was a bit small and the portions at the restaurant were tiny, also, the service could have been a tad friendlier, but otherwise it's a quiet, relaxing place. I had the spa to myself for a half the day (a weekday in the off season). The restaurant was really good and you can walk around the grounds and see the gardens where they grow the zucchini blossoms or tomatoes growing. They also have beautiful crane birds nesting on the grounds which was so cool to see.
We were looking for a establishment that was central to a number of villages in the region. Once you have worked out which exit road you need to take on the circle you drive down a tree line lane to a group of building set in a villa style environment. On one side is a golf course on the other a wall gardens with the family villa set back form a pond and pink flamingos. The establishment includes a pool two accommodation building, a gym massage area, a sauna/indoor pool, a outdoor pool and restaurant building.
The staff were wonderful, breakfast was ok but limited if you were staying for a long period, however we would highly recommend this establishment as a place worth visiting for a couple of nights.
This amazing place offers all the relaxation a person can need and a staff that knows how to be there for their guests and make the stay a real pleasure in a warm and kind way .
The guest are in focus and tough the place is open to the public as a welness center your sunbed is always reservered for you at the pool for you if there are many guests from outside .
A MUST TRY !!!
We had an overnight stay hoping to find a special country villa.
It was next o the golf course but nowhere to walk!
The spa is small and was nabbed by 2 other guests who clearly didn't want us to use the jacuzzi.
Ask to stay in the villa as we were put in the annexe.
The restaurant was good even though my partner found the portions very small and left feeling hungry.
Breakfast was good but beware trying the pastry chefs special , at further cost.
Stayed here for two nights in June 2018. Very pleased with my stay, room was nice and clean and had everything one could ask for. The sunscreen was a nice touch, don't think I have ever gotten that in a hotel before.
Had dinner at the restaurant one night and tried the seafood risotto, which was really good and I was suggested a wine pairing which suited the dish very well. Had the pistachio ice cream for desert that was also very good.
Tried the burger for lunch at the pool bar as well, the (angus) beef patty itself was decent, although grilled too hard, bread was dry and boring, and it was a little thin on condiments.
Location is just outside of Faenza, took me about 30 min to walk from the train station, it was however not the nicest walk, passing through an industrial area and some parts lacked sidewalks, and the entry to the location is just coming out of an roundabout, with no pedestrian crossing available. So going by car is a better choice.
More a couples hotel than a family hotel – I would not bring my kids here, it even says kids under 12yo are not allowed in the pool. That rule was however not enforced during my stay, not that I personally mind though.
Pool area was nice, with the pergolas and sunshades.
Service was good during the whole stay, both in the hotel, restaurant and bar.
All in all a good stay, I would gladly recommend this place.
