After initally viewing a television program on this property and the Taxis family we made the decision that we would like to stay here. William has done an amazing job at restoring this once derelict property.
We stayed for four very pleasant days in L'alba with a double bedroom and bathroom upstairs and combined lounge/dining/kitchen downstairs.
Miranda was very helpful with organising our booking and giving us advice on travel to the area. William was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome. He gave us excellent advice on dining options, shopping and sightseeing. This was a delightful rural experience after staying in busy cities and villages in various Italian regions.
When you are travelling for a number of weeks and dining out for the majority of your meals It was nice change to be able to cook our own meal on a couple of evenings.
You do need your own transport when staying here.
One day we caught the train from the local station into Florence which made a day trip there very easy. The journey was approximately 1 hour each way.
