We arrived to find hundreds of beautifully dressed adults and children milling around yelling at the tops of their voices. We immediately resigned ourselves to a sleepless night but our nice, friendly receptionist reassured us that they would all be gone by 10pm. And they were. This wasn't a drunken wedding, it was several posh first communion parties, giving little Laura, Adriana and others a day to remember. We peeked into the dining room where they were going to have their celebratory dinner. It was a huge converted church with beautiful stained glass windows and the altar converted into a stage! The table settings were amazing. And now for the decoration of the public areas: Ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece meet Versailles, the Far East and everywhere and every time inbetween. Hugely entertained, we loved it. Yes, its obviously fake but the owner was sincere in wanting to spend his millions on something stunningly different and he has done just that. And now to our room: it was really spacious with very high ceilings and restful decor, an enormous, very comfortable bed which gave us the best sleep of our holiday so far, two big armchairs, a desk, two tables, a fridge. The bathroom was huge with lots of surfaces to put our things on, fabulous quality towels and a spa bath. A really good breakfast, presented by efficient staff, was included in our deal. Before we left, we walked round the 'Graeco-Roman Temple' gardens and they were delightful. Pillars, friezes, frescos, busts, statues, colourful bedding plants... all very peaceful with only the sounds of the swallows as they darted around. Would definitely come back to repeat this unique experience.
