We have now visited La Collina 8 times since it was open and thought it was about time we wrote a review!! Visiting 8 times speaks for itself! if you want to go away for a completely relaxing break then this is the place to go! La Collina is set on a hillside with beautiful views and scenery. The grounds are all well maintained and you can take a stroll along the hazelnut or fruit tree terraces or just chill out in the comfy chairs and admire the scenery! I think we have now stayed in all the rooms .... all of which are beautiful dressed with Laura Ashley or Kath Kidston soft furnishings. There is facilities for tea/coffee making in all the rooms and the appartments are well kitted out for making your own dinners. However the food served in the restaurant is delicious and recommended! You will never go hungry if you eat in there. The vegetables are mainly home grown or local produce and everything served is freshly cooked. The cakes are scrummy and made by the owner and her daughter! You can also purchase local wines which are a must! The owners, Toni and Darren, who are from England, are very friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for them. They have been running La Collina for four years now and have three children, all of whom speak fluent Italian and are very friendly and helpful. We are already planning our next visit as the holiday experience at La Collina never dissappoints!!!
