This "farm / vineyard" is amazing. The location provides stunning panoramic views of Tuscany and peacful beauty. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, the property boasts a working windmill, award-winning restaurant, winery, olive groves, ceramic artisan shop, and horseback riding. The main house, Casabella, has rooms with great views, rustic but comfortable accommodations. There is no air conditioning, but it's not needed with the cool nights and open windows. The pool area is a great place to mingle with other guests. Faye, the owner is gracious and accommodating and the property is obviously her passion, which is well reflected in the tender restorations and attention to detail throughout the properties. It's a great place to unwind from a long journey and one could easily spend several days there taking advantage of the sprawling property. A big plus is the vineyard's wine -- incredible. And food -- good for a few add'l pounds :) I would DEFINITELY recommend and return.
