I have to admit, while researching a place to stay after arriving in Rome, the comment about the laughing donkey intrigued me. My research of its website and trip advisor cinched the deal!
Upon our arrival the Villa was a welcomed retreat, the suite upstairs was rustically inviting, the patio doors brought in a beautiful breeze and a view of a village nestled in the middle of the mountain across the way. My husband fell asleep immediately in the comfortable bed. I went downstairs and explored the inn, a classical Tuscan style. The comfortable inviting parlor,the magazines of both culinary and scenic delights awaited me. It was just begging me for a glass of local vine. I gave in, but my host suggested a table on the patio watching the sunset. Good idea. (Ok, I had two)
While experiencing the most tranquil environment high in the hills, the laid back setting, the service both attentive yet private, I heard the magic sound, the braying of the infamous laughing donkey! I felt like I was in the middle of a movie.
I can go on forever, I loved the inn, the Resturant was great,all farm grown products, intimate setting, incredible service and fabulous wines...
I have recommended this inn to my friends, my travel agent and now to you with no hesitation. I will return!
While not a luxury inn, if you are looking for upscale rustic inns in a true Tuscan style with a private romantic setting, this place is for you!
My only suggestion would be to fix railing on stairs and invest in down comforters......
Thank you for a memorable stay and making us feel special... Oh, my husband woke up for dinner and loved it..
