We stayed here for three nights in October. We could not have been more pleased with our hosts and our stay. The property is charming -- our room was quite large, and we loved sitting out in the garden with a bottle of wine, some cheese and meats we'd purchased for a light evening meal. The room was SO quiet, and the bed was really comfortable -- and the price was great!!
Elio could not have been a more gracious host. His restaurant recommendations in San Gimignano and Volterra were outstanding. He had great recommendations for touring the countryside, and we were so grateful when he suggested we alter one of our day's plans so that we would end up taking the autostrada in the evening as opposed to winding roads in the dark.
We also loved how relaxed Elio is. Breakfast, as he puts it, is from "8 until whenever...I hate being on a schedule on holiday, so I don't want my guests to be rushed either." And it was true -- he was available whenever for whatever we needed. He even went so far as to run around after we left figuring out how to ship wine and olive oil for us. Completely above and beyond what was needed!
We loved our homemade breakfasts -- a different cake made by Stefania each day, and she even gave us the recipes. So delicious! And a different treat from Elio each breakfast -- homemade pizzas, bruschetta and other treats. We felt spoiled and relaxed.
Thank you for the wonderful stay -- we can't wait to come back!
