Le Traverse is without a doubt one of the most wonderful experiences in the world. It's situated in rolling Tuscan hills with a long winding road that leads up to the inn. Pinuccia-the lovely owner-is there waiting to greet you. The rooms are very well decorated and comfortable, despite having no air conditioning (there are very good fans, and even in July we were never hot when we were indoors). The breakfasts are simple but superb. Pinuccia grows everything herself, so the jams, the breads, the eggs, and the fruit are all fresh and delicious. She always makes sure to come say hello during breakfast and help you with anything that you need (usually restaurant and sites around the area). The views are spectacular, and we spent many an early evening having a drink overlooking the hills from our room or the pool. Definitely should not miss this amazing opportunity!
