My family of 13 had the pleasure of staying with Nicola and Paulo at the end of May. Everything was perfect from the accommodations to the food. Dinner and breakfast with Paulo are a must. It was the most authentic Italian meal I have had since my grandmother passed away in 1990. The grounds and views are spectacular. Just like a postcard or the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun". The location is great for side trips to Florence and very charming neighboring villages. They were so helpful with advice on where to visit and when we lost a set of van keys, Nicola went above and beyond in helping us resolve the situation. I would highly recommend Podere le Rondini to everyone. It is Tuscany at its best!
