It was the little things...a fresh bottle of water appearing when you are just dying of thirst. Makeup remover towelettes in the modern, remodeled bathrooms. Morning talks to plan the days' activities. Rusty and Pepper guided us the entire week and we were so grateful for their expertise and genuine interest in making their Italy our Italy. We had the most marvelous week in charming, rustic Tuscany. Casa la Pace was perfectly located and served us well as the base of our visit. Rusty and Pepper could not have been better hosts...started as hosts and ending as life-long friends. Casa la Pace was spotless and had been beautifully restored. We slept so soundly on a queen bed that slept like a king size. The sound of the stream and the view of the old city of Ghivazzano were at our fingertips when opening the window of our room. Peaceful, charming, relaxing. Flowers everywhere and a cherry tree at the plateau of the walk into the village. There is nothing that will disappoint any visitor. We will return time and time again.
Thank you Rusty and Pepper!
