    Your say...

    We have just come home after a wonderful week at Villa Carlotta. I think this has to be one of the best boutique hotels we have ever stayed at. We had a lovely mini suite with our own private terrace, complete with sun beds as well as table and chairs with a lovely sea view. The food at both breakfast and dinner was excellent. We used their valet parking and the car was always delivered promptly as soon as requested. What made this hotel though was the staff. They are excellent and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you Villa Carlotta!
