What more can I add to my previous review. The accommodation/views/hospitality/weather and of course Dante (the cat) were again fantastic. Perhaps we could have done without the odd thunder storm but when the sun shined boy did it shine. We stayed in the cottage Alice, what a setting with breakfast overlooking the valley towards San Gimignano, you have to see for yourselves because words cannot really describe the views that you have. Over the past few years Virginia has been putting her own individual stamp on upgrading the apartments. The changes have been superb with all apts/cotts having flat screen TV`s and Wi-Fi. Added to that you can help yourselves to Virginia`s own Extra Virgin Olive Oil/Red & White wine plus on request her superb Grappa`s both white and amber. The pool is unbelieveable so quiet like you are the only people staying there, again with views overlooking San Gim. + a small children`s section and the addition of a new hot/cold shower. Lastly I must repeat my thanks to Virginia and her team of helpers which again made are stay so wonderful. Look forward to seeing you in October 14.
