We have recently returned to the reality of work in the UK after a one-week stay at Villa Ducale. It's not difficult to see why this superb hotel that is managed by wonderful, friendly staff, has earned so many awards.

We stayed at the Villa Ducale from 15th August to 23rd August. A transfer from the airport was arranged for us by the hotel.
