This was a faboulous stop on our quick tour of Tuscany. The house has so much more charm and character than pictures could ever reveal. We arrived fairly late in the evening to be met by the family and given a guided tour of the house. The rooms are large, really well decorated and very cozy. Linens are crisp and the beds very comfortable. The kitchen is beautiful and stocked with everything you could need to cook. Our first morning Maria, the grandmother, took me on a tour of the property. She introduced me to the chickens whose eggs we had for breakfast and the rabbits she raises. We picked fruit from the trees and enjoyed a fresh grape crostata that she made in her outdoor woodfired oven. Although I speak zero Italian, I think that we did fairly well understanding each other. There was a bottle of their house made red wine waiting for us on the table. I can't even describe the views from the house. Surrounded by and olive orchard and grape vines. I felt as if we had just come to visit family, and was truly said to be leaving. I can't wait to get back an visit again. This time I'm going to try to learn a little Italian first, and maybe Maria will teach me how to make that crostada!
