We spent our fourth visit to Marciano from the 16th to 21st June this year.....It just gets better and better here, you are made to feel so at home here and be part of Federica and Maurizio's lovely family that you instantly relax and unwind and know that you are going to have a lovely hoilday.Is this paradise? I dodn't know but I know it is very close to it. The only drawback is the "white road", the 3km access road, which when you first venture down it you are left thinking no this cannot be right and where is this going to lead to?.....but when you reach your destination,Marciano,and see the accommadation, the pool and the Tuscan vista, you know you have made the right choice. The "white road" a problem?? no....you soon get used to it, enjoy it and it even becomes fun, best at night when you expect wild boar to run out on you( and they sometimes do).We were lucky enough to find this piece of heaven back in 2005 and have been coming back ever since...if I had my way we would come back every couple of months to relax and recharge our batteries....if you ever think about season tickets, Federica, we would subscribe.....and now that we have mastered the route to and from Pisa airport there would be no stopping us.You have everything you need at Marciano to make your stay memorable....fantastic, comfortable big bedrooms(we had no 5 this time,great even better than no 3, though the shower in 3 is the best ever), great hospitality, brilliant, peaceful pool, fantastic breakfast and now , three nights a week, really great gastronomic Tuscan dinners, great value, fanastic wines,friendly service, a true tribute to local specialities.You do as much or as little that you wish here, but whatever you do you you will enjoy and feel glad, like we did, that you have found this piece of paradise. Thank you Federica, Maurizio and Kranti, once again a fanastic holiday, not long enough,holidays never are,but it did the job and we will return as soon as possible.Richard and Lynn
