Upon our arrival, we were offered a welcoming glass of prosecco and snacks to relax and get comfortable at our Tuscan farmhouse retreat. We opted for the family style dinner the first night and were so impressed with Marie-Therese's wonderful offerings that we stayed in each evening to enjoy her succelent offerings each night. Some of the most delicious food we had during our three week Italian trip included apertifs with snacks, appetizers, main course and desserts along with wonderful dinner wines and lemoncello. "Roll me out the door" full, just a great way to end our daily Tuscan wanderings. The farmhouse was a ten minute drive to Siena.
Pierre, Marie-Therese's oldest, was a great help (as he spoke very good English) in giving us directions and advice as to our choices of areas to visit. We visied San Gimiganano and took an excellant tour of the Chianti region starting in Greve and ended back at the farmhouse six hours later. Thankfully, another feast was in store and we did not need to go out searching for a restaurant.
We asked Marie-Therese where we could find a laundramat. Our hostess gladly offered to take care of this for us. When we told her how much we had, she said no problem, just bring it to her. That next evening when we returned from touring, we saw our clean clothes on the line drying in the Tuscan sun. The fresh air smell in our clean ironed clothes was amazing, something that really surprised us.
Overall, our three day stay at this B & B was beyond our expectations. We were treated royally and would gladly return in the future.
