Honeymoon Hideaway was Heaven
Posted Sep 22, 2010
My new husband and I had embarked on a driving tour of Europe and ended up in North Eastern Italy. We were looking for somewhere secluded as we had our car, and also picturesque. Villa Tacchi was perfect for our needs. The gravel drive up to the hotel frames it beautifully, the building itself looking sparkling. The air conditioned reception was a blessing during the most intense heat I have experienced. Our room was beautiful, with dark wood furniture and a strong shower. There was also a lovely pool area that was great to relax by during the day and up to quite late at night.
There is a restaurant, but it has a fixed menu with many courses and we were honestly too hot to eat that much food!
Most of the staff were friendly, however some consider a vodka with coke a complicated drink, this has formed one of our main tales of the trip. Breakfast had all the staples, bread, meat and cheese and plenty of fresh fruit.
The is so much to explore around Villalta, we would recommend visiting the local towns for food, in Gazzo there is a spectaular pizzeria, and the staff were very patient with my attempts at Italian!
I would say if you are going to stay in this hotel and you want to explore you will need a car, we had day trips to Soave, Marinello and Venice all within a lovely driving distance with gorgeous scenery the whole way.
We felt we got a bargain for how beautiful and peaceful the hotel was, and we would definately visit again!
