I was looking for the perfect place for my Mother's 50th Birthday celebration and our first holiday abroad! A friend suggested L'Antica Vetreria and I have to say it was beyond perfect.
From the first correspondence with Colleen it was clear that we were going to be extremely well looked after. Colleen and Tom go above and beyond to help with making sure you are quickly settled and sorted for your stay.
We had a wonderful cookery lesson with Salvatore, and enjoyed a trip to the local vineyard. There was delicious gelato in the local shop as well as great markets to visit and some of the most beautiful scenery that we have seen.
Colleen and Tom are such welcoming and lovely hosts that it felt we were leaving good friends at the end of our week and we look forward to going back to see them and explore Piegaro and the area even further.
