From the moment we arrived in November, we loved this place and the hosts. The pictures on the website of Ventena Vecchia did not do it justice. All was better, we were more than pleasantly surprised.
We only had one week in November to stay in tuscany, and we could have easily spent a week exploring. Looking back on our trip, this was definitely our favorite place to stay. I just wish we had time to stay longer, two weeks ;-) ! It was the time of olive picking, all by hand.
Olaf, the staff and other peaple where working in the olive terraces. The biological olive oil they made here is amazing, delicious, short I had never better flavor of olive oil.
The room was beautifully decorated in "Tuscan Country style, and had all of the amenities you would expect if you were traveling. The was a bottle of wine as well come drink and a little bottle of olive oil at our room. Immediately we felt well. One thing I noticed immediately was how clean everything was, just immaculate. And believe me, I notice all details! Nice touch with the quality toiletries. The beds where more as genially, we had alway a deep sleep.
What makes this place shine are the owners. Olaf, Siggi, Bea and Rolf love to share recommendations. We've visiting the museums in Florence and small towns in the Tuscan countryside, we liked Arezzo, Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano and Cortona, all trips neets only one or two hours from here, all of Olaf's tipp-off and recommendations were perfect.
Not only breakfast, every fruit you could imagine, all available and the dinners where delicous and Bea's selfmade "Nicino"-Liquor at the end only great. Everything was fresh made. They even offered us always the best wine. Our favorite way to start the day was one of Pina's unforgettable cappuccinos, the fresh bread and the selfmade marmelade, oooh don't forget the pecorino-chees.
Thanks Olaf and his team for sharing your passion for Tuscany and this place. We will be back soon and have recommended Ventena Vecchia to many friends, because this is a place to stay!
