It was a first visit in this area for us, so we did not know exactly to expect. Everybody said that whole Tuscany is a wonderful place, but the accomodation at Lizzy and Lorenzo was much more than just a place to sleep. Both are very welcoming, open hearted and always willing to help. We have planned visits in the cities and places at all over the land, but Lizzy and Lorenzo gave us advices each morning - how to get there, what is best to see, provided maps, etc. We felt like to be with good friends.
I would like to raise two things:
1) Lizzy is an incredible house keeper, everything was clean and perfectly tidy. Also the meal at breakfast is really tasty. Homemade breads, cakes are trully delicious.
2) Lorenzo has a gift and deep knowledge how to take care of all the plants in his garden, olive trees and wineyard. He provided us a tour of all the plants they have, everything has its place there. Great experience for us.
We liked it so much so we decided to postpone our trip down to Elba Island and stay one more night at their place. We recommend this accomodation especially for those, who love calm and quite places with a beautiful nature. Altough we are young couple, we do not seek for night bars, parties - this was the right place for us.
