We spent two nights here in June with a family of 4. The photos and reviews had us excited before we arrived. We were not disappointed! The view of the vineyards and San Gimignano rising up in the distance was like a fairy tale or a postcard. You could lounge by the pool, sip wine on the back porch under the moonlight, or take convenient day trips to many towns around Tuscany. We chose to stay put and relax. The grocery store is just south of the town and had everything you need to make your own dinner, which we did using the outdoor Tuscan oven and eating in the dining room of our large apartment. Giuseppeina gave us a wonderful tour of the wine making facility and then we sipped various wines and enjoyed fresh bread and olive oil on the terrace at sunset. We brought home lots of wine and oil to share with our friends. Highly recommend this hidden jewel. It's not touristy and is the real deal in Tuscany!
