“Un Sogno Toscano”

Guisi and Dario's house is the dream Tuscan rental. It is tucked into a hillside on the idyllic farm of the owners where in the distance the hill of Cortona and the lights of the valley are visible. The open terrace is positioned perfectly for dramatic sunsets and candlelight dinners. A lovely trail behind the house leads to a spectacular view of Lake Trasimeno. We found Donatella (Guisi's sister) and her husband Rupert who manage the property to be warm and accomodating. The directions to the house were perfect and Guisi met us and showed us the house and made sure we were settled into our perfect week. I had asked that the pool be open even though it was a bit early. It was open and gorgeous and I used it every day. We have never rented a house with such a well-equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were comfortable with gorgeous old linens. The large open kitchen and living area were welcoming. There are so many special things about this house, but having Guisi come and cook for us and teach us how to make some of her amazing specialities was at the top of the list. The dinner was spectacular from appetizers during sunset to the final tiramisu, fruit and baci chocolates! One night Guisi arranged a taxi driver from the local village of Montinare to drive us to and from Cortona for a wine tasting dinner so we did not have to drive. This is a special place with special people. A true Tuscan dream with a charming Italian family. We can't wait to come back.
