We booked our trip with Gianni who organised accommodation and suggested a walking schedule. In addition we also had the pleasure of having a truly superb 4 course dinner on one night, prepared and cooked for us in our beautiful Villa by a friend of Gianni's; Elisa; super, fresh, local produce, prepared by a professional chef.
We found dealing with Gianni to be very easy in every respect. He also provided a walk from the villa in Quercegrossa led by Sara, the owner. Again this was an interesting and enjoyable day as Sara was able to tell us so much about the locale as we clambered through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend the services of these people without hesitation and we were truly sad to leave Quercegrossa.
Sara's villa is newly rebuilt, very clean, with tasteful / comfortable furnishings and just so peaceful. The loudest thing to hear is the birdsong in the morning and watching the sunset in the evening with a glass of Futerotoli ( local red ) was a joy. Paulo and Bianca's pizzeria in the village was also a good night out with great food at very good prices - used by locals..... and excellent.
One last thing; the road leading to and past the villa provides one of the best runs; a long, sweaty and steady climb for 2.5 miles up to the next village followed by a fast descent back with country views all the way.
Ciao Gianni, Sara and Elisa. Grazie mille.
