My husband and our ten year old son just returned home this month from Italy. We began our stay at Nicola and Allessandra's farmhouse. We stayed in their apartment which was so full of charm! We spent our first day in Nonna Cianna's kitchen with the help of a family friend as translater and learned to cook some really fabulous food. Although it is hard to say what was better, the food or the company. What a wonderful family that makes you feel so welcome! We left feeling like long time friends! I highly recommend staying in this delightful local which is so close to Siena but you get to experience the magnificence which is the countryside!
