We made our reservation about a week before we left for this amazing experience. Our drive was about 2 hours from where we were staying in Montalcino. We were making great time until we hit a stint of traffic and got stuck for a half hour. Giulio and Christina were gracious when I called to let him know we were... More

In the beautiful hills of Tuscany, in a village called Bagno a Ripoli, south of Florence, we met with Giulio, Truffle Hunter, artist and life lover. Giulio clearly shares our passion for great food and even more for the truffle delicacy. He explained us with passion about the different types of truffles, the seasons, where to look for them, about... More

We visited Guilio and his partner Christina for their truffle hunting and of course eating experience on our trip to Florence. I have nothing but exclamation marks to add to previous reviews. Guilio is a wonderful host and he offers a unique experience which I will always remember . To hear about the history of his own experience with truffle... More

I work for Lonely Planet and I need to shoot a feature story on truffle hunting in the Florence area and Giulio was well recommended. Did I ever find the right guy! Giulio and his dog Edda were fantastic. It's just a short drive from his beautiful "Truffle House" to the Tuscan hillside where he and Edda hunt for truffles.... More

This review is WAY overdue, and I feel bad about that because in my opinion La Limonaia should be rated number 1 over all of the other B&Bs in Tuscany. To the reviewer of "It's No Hilton/Marriott"'s credit he says that this was not for him - it is not a modern hotel. But don't confuse rustic with primitive. Primitive... More

There is no doubt this the place for an "authentic" experience. Unfortunately, I found out, I'm not that rustic. The hosts were warm and the breakfast delicious. Next time I'll visit for a tour, but stay in an American style hotel. I was ready to leave within the first hour. Sorry it wasn't for me.

After reading positive reviews about Giulio and his tours, we have ordered a full day tour with cheese and spice tastings. We have expected the usual: a nice view of Tuscany, and a bit of commercial site seeing. Oh boy, we were wrong. For the price of a standard tour at other places, we got a personal tour of Tuscany,...

This is a copy of the letter we sent to Giulio, our tour guide. We had such a great day! He was early picking us up. He did everything to make our day perfect.

Once again, Guilio and Cristina completely out-did themselves! This was my second experience with La Limonaia and it was even better than the first - didn't think that was possible! Guilio and Cristina were the consummate hosts - from the Chianti Classico vineyard tour to the cheese tasting - at the goat farmer's dairy (talk about fresh!) - to the... More
