We just spent two weeks in Italy with one week in Piegaro at this beautiful renovated glass factory. We stayed in Il Due. It was perfect for a couple. This was a great location to do day trips to various towns/villages. See Colleen's recommendations. Pool is beautiful and was great to take a dip after doing a day of touring. Colleen and Tom are wonderful hosts! Take the wine tour and make sure you do the lunch trip to ValVerde (sp?) restaurant! We also did a cooking lesson with Salvatore at Juni's. So wonderful!!! We would love to go back some day! The people of Piegaro were so welcoming! Thank you, thank you!
