We have been coming to Italy for more than 20 years. Of all the places we have stayed at, including a few 5 star resorts, Le Due Volpi beats them all. Here you will find yourself secluded away in a most quiet pastoral and panoramic setting in Italy. But more than that you will have a spacious room in a 14th century farmhouse, decorated accordingly, but with every modern convenience. Spend a full day in Florence--a one hour trip by train to the heart of the city--and then return to another world of beauty and tranquility. Of course, if you want to dance the night away, just stay in Florence.
Yes, location, location, location puts Due Volpi on top of the list. But what really makes it charming are the owners Heidi and Lorenzo who make you feel that their home is also your home. Periodically Heidi prepares a dinner which you will never find in any restarurant. Don't miss the opportunity. When she isn't cooking dinner there are several good restaurants in the nearby town.
This is a place for people who really want to see another part of Italy free from the hordes of tourists that swarm through the larger cities of Italy. It's best to have a car, but one can take a train to Le Due Volpi and Lorenzo will pick you up and even make arrangements for a local car rental to visit the local towns.
Don't worry about the language. Heidi speaks perfect English and Lorenzo speaks (so does Heidi) perfect Italian. And you can learn a lot about Italy from politics to cuisine to gardening from them.
If you don't find Le Due Volpi a delighful experience, then there isn't much in the world that you can ever enjoy.
