Walking up the trail to the saltwater pool the scent in the air was pure rosemary wafting from the perfectly trimmed hedges lining the path. If it sounds a little too prim, it wasn't. This was purely rustic, Tuscan charm. My husband and I stayed here for two nights at the end of an adventurous two weeks in Italy. The view from the pool took our breaths away.
I cannot say enough about the family. They were so kind and fun and seemed to figure out how to live their lives with strangers in their midst. Elena's mother found me bumbling around the courtyard looking for someone to help me find a knife. They gifted us a bottle of really excellent Chianti Classico which they make on the property.
Here's the thing: I really disliked Greve. It was so commercialized...like the Disney version of Italy. We had a tragic dinner experience there. So it says a lot about Podere Campriano that I would consider staying there again on my next trip. I just loved it.
