Yes this review is a little late, but better late than never. We stayed here in July 2010 for 3 nights and it was absolutely fabulous. We arrived late in the evening, after a lengthy drive from Pisa airport, hungry and tired. We were met by a very friendly host who recommended a place to eat and even called for us to inform the restaurant that we would be arriving a little late. It sure was a great recommendation with authentic food and wine drawn from a barrel.
That was a great start to our stay at Terzo di Danciano and it just continued to exceed our expectations. During the light of day we saw the beautiful surroundings, our beautiful room and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. The hosts were were forthcoming and friendly and even organized a birthday cake at request. :-) There is a lovely pool by which you can sit and relax and play with their friendly cats. In short, a wonderful stay and a gem that is definitely worth visiting.
