End of August we spent a couple of nights in the Villa Talente.
A Villa from the 14th century with all the comfort you would expect, situated on a hill in the middle of olive trees and wine grapes with exceptionally friendly staff.
But still it just takes you 30 minutes by car to the center of Florence and about an hour to Siena.
The breakfast is awesome, the dinner is even better - if you get one. Unfortunately it seems that dinner is only served in certain times of the year. But then it is really exceptional as the owners are very keen on using fresh ingredients. The cook took the spices from the garden.
If you want to spend a romantic weekend this is the place to go to.
