All of the other reviews are right, this place is wonderful. You always wonder if a place can be as nice as they say. This one is!! Nico is a wonderful host, very helpful in sightseeing and dining recommendations, friendly and always on top of things. We enjoyed chatting with him as he described the history of Sant Antonio and his plans for the future. The breathtaking views from the patios are usually seen only in photos. It was a very relaxing, beautiful place to return to after long days of sightseeing. We had the separate little cottage with the big fireplace and the great bathroom with the jacuzzi tub. Before dinner we would take a glass of wine, some cheese and crackers and sit on one of the large patios to admire the views. We had brought our ipod boombox with us and we played classical music, the only thing beautiful enough for this place. It was heaven. We cannot wait to return to "Our home in Tuscany".
