To celebrate my 60th birthday I chose L'Antica Cisterna because of its stunning location and because it was easy for my friends to travel via Pisa and Florence from their various worldwide locations.
When we arrived there was an audible gasp.............it is one of the few places I've travelled to that really has that WOW factor. The views are simply too stunning to be real and the hospitality shown by the hosts, Ann and Charly was outstanding.
Ann organised an amazing Cookery Class for us and as we were a multi cultural group her linguistic abilities were fantastic!
No request was too much trouble, their knowledge of the area invaluable and we left with a heavy heart and promises to return next year! A truly memorable vacation!
