I spent one week here in the Summer of 2012 with my Son (11yrs).
Accommodation : ours was quite basic, clean, airy, air conditioned, not overly big, we had a room in the main hotel - there are different accommoation blocks - those nearer the pool did appear nicer (we were with friends who were down there) so ask for those in preference.
Food : wonderful,the greatest cheese, meats/salamis, wine prosecco, freshly pciked salad, tomaotes - food was just amazing, each morning there were fresh raspberries, blueberries, strawberries which had been picked on the farm, also great cakes/breads/pancakes/eggs (no doubt from the local chooks) - the evenings we had tasters of traditional regional fare - can't fault it.
Entertainment : tours of the farm, picking fruits, making jam/pastas and horseriding. I sense that if you are in to horses, this could be paradise for you, early morning hacks on the local land - view of the Dolomites as you go. There are bikes to be borrowed for those that prefer more control of their transport - some bikes are sporting brakes so do beware.
Pool : all important when the sun is shining and you are roasting - 2 lovely pools, one for the little tiniy ones and the other for the bigger kids and adults. Good size and one depth.
Location :in a small vilage which has a couple of shops, post office, bank an pharmacy, 5mins walk from the hotel.
Hotel staff : the hotel is owned by a family and run by them too, they have great English and are really friendly and helpful.
What's around to do : Venice is around 1hour away by car as is the beach.
