We stayed as a family of 5 for 1 week after visiting Rome and Siena tow weeks ago. Overall we enjoyed it but there was room for improvment. like the previous review I agree Claudia was wonderful as was one of the waitress in the main restuarant, but some of the other staff really had no interest in their guests at all. My daughter, granddaughter and myself did the cookery course which had been recommended by friends who stayed earlier this year. Our experience was not as we hoped, althhough we got to chop some vegatables and stuff a courgette most of the other work was done by the chef. We had expected our lunch at a proper table and were initially told it would be with wines paired with the different courses. In fact the plastic table cloth we had prepared lunch on was wiped down and a piece of paper set as our placemat, only water was availalable. At 65 euro's each a bit pricey after expressing our disappointment we were given a 15 euro refund. The pool was very good but short of chairs and sunshades and the only lunch was a set buffet ( a choice of rolls or salad would have been nice). We also found the main restuarant rather soulless in the evening, beautiful views but very quiet and only a few people eating. We did enjoy our stay in spite of the above but these problems could easily be put right for the future, we felt maybe they were short of staff.
