I absolutely loved my stay at Podere Dell'Anselmo in Montespertoli, Italy. I spent a week at this beautiful villa just outside Florence!! I was traveling alone but never felt lonely or alone. Fabrizio, Giulia and everyone there could not do enough for me. I was not feeling well the first 2 days and they cooked plain pasta and soup especially for me. I chose to eat dinner at the villa, and all of the guests sat together with owner Fabrizio and had dinner like one big happy family. Which is exactly how I felt..Each night was filled with delicious food, wine from their vineyard and great conversation. I took three cooking classes with Chef Laura. We cooked many delicious recipes and had lots of fun. The accomodations were beautiful and as a woman traveling alone, I felt very comfortable. My tours of Pisa, Luca, San Gimignano & Voltera were amazing. My driver Giovanni was also very good. His passion for his country was wonderful and he supplied me with many interesting facts about each city. He even helped me with my Italian language lessons. Lauren at Cooking Vacations.com recommended this "Tuscan Traveler's Dream" vacation for me and it was perfect..5 star. Very highly recommended. Thank you to Lauren and Podere Dell'Anselmo for a very memorable vacation!
