We had a fantastic stay at Villa Exner. The waiters of their excellent restaurant can be a little overeager, but all in all they offer great service. The property is really beautiful and relaxing. The food is of high quality, we especially enjoyed the home-made gnocchi.

Villa Exner is an exceptionally beautiful and luxurious place to stay. We had a stunning large bedroom in the main house with views across the gardens and mountains behind. From the moment we pulled up to the gates to the moment we got into our car we experienced perfect service.
