I cannot praise this hotel or its staff too highly. The taxi was not available when I arrived at the station so they arranged for me to be picked up; the car hire company had gone out of business that week , so Marie Pierre arranged another hire car and negotiated a good rate. I like my boiled eggs at breakfast cooked for 4 minutes, and every day Leonardo ensured that they arrived perfectly cooked. I asked for a room with a view and I could look out of the window and see the castle- a particularly impressive sight at night. Fabio, one of the owners gave us the four-star tour of the galleries to ensure we saw the best of the art having previously been responsible for ensuring our room had not only a view but also spectacular decor.His wife, Antonella, ensured that all our requirements were met and also gave thoughtful responses to my enquiries about some of the subtleties of the Italian language; a free language lesson. In short, I felt I was an important and honoured guest who was selected for special treatment and I feel that no praise is too much for the service I received. The restaurant was very good on the one evening that it was raining and we decided to try the in-house cuisine and there was always the overwhelming bonus of being in the centre of an art gallery. The room was a generous size and the selection for breakfast was extensive. The location, literally one minute from the intersection of the autostrada, was extremely convenient and all the important sites for Piero della Francesca and Assisi were within an hours drive.
In short, I had an exceptional stay in an exceptional hotel with some delightful people and cannot wait to return. Fabio e Antonella, grazie mille ; non vedo l'ora di tornare.
