We visited "Il Cellise " the first full week of May and our stay exceeded all expectations. My wife and I, our two sons and our daughter in law stayed in The Loft and Fienile. Both were beautiful apartments with their separate charm and personality and stunningly beautiful views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Our host Sergio was always warm and hospitable as he and chef Silvia never hesitated to offer stories and insights which gave us a deeper understanding of Tuscan and Italian culture. Silvia prepared meals for us on two occasions in the dining room and hosted a cooking class which will live in our memories forever. The food was always wonderful.
"Il Cellise" was a convenient location for our day trips throughout Tuscany. We traveled to the hillside towns of Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra - the cities of Pisa and Florence and the seaside port village of Portovenere as well as numerous stops in picturesque towns for wine tasting and festivals.
We hope to return to this special place someday but for now we'll settle for the smiles that the recollection of "Il Cellise" brings to our faces.
