Hotel Villa Contarini Nenzi - 3 Nights
This is an elegant 18th century grand residence now sensitively restored into an excellent 4 star spa hotel. Located just outside of Treviso, the Contarini Nenzi contains traditional period piece furniture and is surrounded by wonderful Italian-style parkland, with some old stables and even a delightful nineteenth century church with frescoes.
Hotel Ilaria, Lucca - 3 Nights
This 4-star hotel offers elegantly furnished rooms equipped with modern comforts. Renovated from Villa Buonvisi's historic stables and a 14th-century church, Hotel Ilaria is perfectly located in the historic centre of Lucca, just a short walk from the major sights.
I would certainly recommend Albatross and would use them again. The organisation was great, the destinations interesting and I really liked the pace - not too slow but slow enough that we had a chance to enjoy each of the destinations without wasting time and without getting too tired.
