Regarding the menu (Carpe Diem), I won't add a word: look at the pictures, they speak for themselves. I only want to spend a few words about the "chef's selection of assorted mini-desserts". It smells like the 'assorted pastry trays' used in Italy (expecially southern Italy) to

We stayed two nights and booked primarily because the pictures of this Persian-style villa were so unusual and enticing. We enjoyed our stay immensely because not only was the villa amazing, but the staff, especially the concierge, were warm and welcoming. The surrounding area

Response from Villacrespi, Proprietario at Villa Crespi
Responded Nov. 7, 2018
Dear Nadja, your review left us without words, honestly. As we have done our internal researches, we want to give a detailed explanation of what happened that day and defend Villa Crespi from such a bad accusation. As you wrote, on the confirmation it is well written that the Restaurant is closed on Monday all day long and on Tuesday for lunch. On the same day you receive the confirmation (two minutes later according to our records) our booking department contacted you by email to highlight this information and to inform that we could have provided you with other Restaurant names for a nice meal in town during your stay. On the day of your arrival you had several contacts with our concierge, giving us an approximate time of your arrival during the evening and without mentioning the fact that you wanted to cancel or move the reservation. This is the reason why our staff kept on calling you! We were afraid that you had troubles in reaching the place as we were told that you would have reached the Hotel at 10pm. People of course choose Villa Crespi for our wonderful fine dining cuisine but not only for that reason. The Hotel is a unique Moorish style Villa located in a beautiful region, it is the ideal setting to find relaxation away from the cities and surrounded by nature. Moreover, we would like to inform all the readers that our booking department is available every day from 10 to 7 pm, in order to give you assistance regarding bookings confirmation, modification or cancellation. Please, always feel free to contact us anytime, we are here to provide you the best service and experience ever. Cinzia Primatesta Cannavacciuolo

We are just one hour and a quarter far from Milano centre and the best way to reach there is a private transfer organized from us. We remain at your full disposal for any further information you may require. with best regards, Silvia Ferrari

È possibile accesso cani sia in stanza che ristorante? Grazie
Dovrebbero vietarlo ma sono talmente ospitali che probabilmente li accettano

Buongiorno, volevo sapere per cortesia in cosa consiste il pacchetto degustazione bevande ed il costo, grazie.
Purtroppo non posso dare il costo in quanto il pacchetto mi è stato regalato per due persone per una particolare occasione! Comunque sul sito internet potrà trovare alcune soluzioni, cena, pernottamento, tipologia delle camere ( tutte comunque molto belle). Festeggiare a villa Crespi un ricorrenza importante ne vale comunque letteralmente la "spesa". Mario
