Yeaaaah, that was better than Caribic :-)
The one of the most beautiful places in the world. Everywhere you look are vineyards, olive groves, old buildings and a world of all shades of green colour. You can reach in 1 hour driving seaside, Florence, Pisa, Sienna...all great places + to drive a Ferrari around Ferrari Museum in Maranello in 2 hours :-) Supermarket in the near village with plenty of Italian specialities, wines and everything for very good prices.
We took Il Padronale for 1 week, take 2 weeks as minimum, especially if you come by car. Nice, spacy, very ancient place where you can cook, make your own pizza, sit on the spacious terrace, play with dogs, swim in clean pool. Very nice and friendly family, many thanks to Duccio for teaching how to make pizza :-) You can buy outstanding home made olive oil, taste is much far from supermarket products...
We chose September, it was a great time, all the grapes were ripe, breathtaking atmosphere when you walk around the farm.
General: Very good choice if you want to spent more types of holiday in one place - countryside, ancient places, seaside, biking, sleeping in beautiful garden... That all is included :-) Wifi if you want to work, or browse internet. Very nice people all around.
The best place (and time) for real relax. Worth to come back.

Four apartments that look like they grew up one on the other along the centuries without a precise project, they have given birth to an interesting and unique structure.To embellish the whole structure, a deep green, scented crown: our garden. And a shining blue pearl: our swimming pool. ... more less
