The owner, David, and his staff are wonderful. Helpful to the max.
On arrival David greeted us and helped us to our rooms. I was, at first, a little disappointed in how dark our room was. However, it did make for a good night's sleep. The bathroom was also dark & that could be brightened up. We had a nice sitting area, comfortable bed, and our own patio.
We took a cooking class with Giuseppe & Carla, along with interpreter Gemma, that was GREAT. I will definitely make pick pasta at home - never would have guessed I'd do that! We loved eating our "lesson" for lunch.
David also arranged a cheese & wine tour with Dejan that was outstanding. We loved seeing Pienza, Montepulciani, etc., and had a great lunch included.
We enjoyed cooling off in the pool after hot days exploring Tuscany.
