We had an incredible week at Casa Bici Buti. Each day was "the best". The house is lovely, historic and renovated to perfection, while still maintaining the old charm of the original structure. It is quiet and very, very comfortable. Our room and bathroom were wonderful. The location of the house is quintessential Tuscany, olives and grapes growing up the side of the hill, sprinkled with lovely wildflowers and footpaths. Roosters crow, neighbors wave while out in their gardens. It is absolutely enchanting! We felt embraced by the warmth of the local people that we met, whether dining out at the amazing local restaurants, walking around the village or up in the hills, getting gelato or going to the vegetable market. Michael and Diane were fantastic hosts! You can eat a yummy breakfast prepared by Michael, hang around Buti or take off for the day. Everything is very close and everything you see is beautiful. We chose to hire Michael be our tour guide for the week, which made our experience all the more spectacular. We had lovely day and half-day trips and because of Michael and Diane's familiarity of the area and knowledge of the language, our experience was not that of ordinary tourists, pouring over maps and guides and visiting all the "usual" attractions, but a much richer one where we felt truly immersed in the culture. The Sandrins are very special people and know so much about the history and nuances of the area. To be with them as guides enlivened each place we visited in a way that we never would have gotten reading the tour books and being on our own. Can't wait to go back! We give our highest recommendation for Casa Bici Buti!
