Le Traverse is a big part of the charm and beauty of Tuscany! It was a pleasant surprise, and the highlight of our trip to Italy. Even though the pictures and descriptions on line sounded great, there is always that worry that it won't be what you expected. In this case, Le Traverse went way beyond our expectations! From our initial leisurely meeting with Pinuccia, the proprietor, to our activities each day, it was a charming and calming experience. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. There are vineyards and olive groves. A bottle of the house wine is provided in each room. Breakfast is hot, delicious and prompt each morning, and includes Pinuccia's signature home-made pastries, breads, tarts and jams. It was fascinating to see the Le Traverse label on jams and jellies throughout all of Tuscany. Pinuccia and Alessia, her staff, were gracious and helpful, initiating support when it had not even been asked for yet. Pinuccia made sure we knew what to do and see in the region, and made reservations for us without us even asking. She hired a driver for us to make the longer journey to Cortona and Assissi, since we didn't want to drive it ourselves. From beginning to end, it was perfect, and my only regret is that we didn't stay there the full two weeks we were there in Italy!
