|"I had every intention of giving you a de. briefing on our trip to Italy ,but since our return in the early hours of last Sunday morning , I have been extremely busy.
Let me say straight away that our stay at Villa Diodati was an outstanding success. It exceeded my highest expectations & perhaps best of all my wife enjoyed every minute of it.
The villa , its grounds & facilities are impressive. The villas size & the range of facilities both inside & out meant that everyone was able to go about doing their own thing . Whilst for a group of our size this was ideal , I believe that it would require a large group such as ours to make it work well . I don't believe that any member of our party found anything critical to say about any aspect of the Villa.
It may also be worth commenting on the Villas location . The villas close proximity to Lucca was a major plus. Lucca is a charming town which one could access either by car or taxi in some ten minutes. Being so close to Lucca it was surprising that the Villa was located in such a tranquil rural environment. It was also blessed being so close to Villa Reale , which incidentally, was the home of Napoleons sister . The grounds of Villa Reale are magnificent & being less than five minute walk away , were a joy to walk around. I could indeed have spent much more time than I had at my disposal doing so. An added bonus is that Villa Reale is signposted from north south east or west whereas Diodati is not
I would like to comment on the staff who attended to our every need at the Villa. The resident staff are a couple who originate from Rumania. Giorgio & his wife Lika ( I think this is how it is spelt ! ). It is difficult to praise them too highly. Hard working , efficient & courteous . They orchestrated every aspect of our needs & wishes brilliantly. The extra chef & assistant you organized were also excellent. Indeed the chef , Mario was outstanding . So much so yhat he finished up giving some of the ladies hints on Italian cooking.
The night of my wife's birthday was a resounding success . The food , service, music & atmosphere made it an occasion that we will all remember for a long time to come. Perhaps incredibly & most importantly she had no idea that any of it was being planned.
You may find it somewhat surprising & maybe even a little boring when I say , truthfully , I could find no fault in any aspect of our trip. The planning & execution were faultless . A large part of this was indeed a result of your patient responses to my persistent attention to detail & to the manner in which you dealt with the process .
May I finally say thank you for your role in making this occasion outstandingly successful.
Yours most sincerely,
|"Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Villa Diodati. The accomodation was perfect for our family & the situation, being so central to so many places worked well for us, plus it was so nice being in the countryside.
Thank you very much for all your assistance (and your patience with all my requests!!).
|"I rented villa diodati last summer for a week. it was a great experience...the staff, Giorgio, his wife and the cook were all wonderfull with all of us, and they were great with the children
I had thinking of maybe returning this summer...
|"Wollte mich nochmal bedanken fuer den guten Service. Alles hat wunderbar geklappt! Wir haben sehr schoene Tage dort verbracht. Der Service war spitze trotz Sprachbarriere, das Essen superlecker, fuer die Kinder wurde oft extra gekocht, die Villa schoen mit grossem Park, die Matrazen naja, wir haben uns von den guten Geistern umsorgt, rundum wohl gefuehlt. Wir haetten gerne verlaengert, aber es war schon im vorraus belegt.
Mit freundlichen Gruessen,
