Our Australian family including two teenagers recently spent a week with Ingrid & Alex at La Falconara. We chose the apartment with a small wood stove. We had a truly fabulous time & can only agree with all the other reviews. The location was perfect to explore Tuscany - we were particularly interested in the red wines & were centrally located for all the famous varieties/districts. Alex & Ingrid directed us to the perfect places to eat for lunch & dinner & also our breakfast expresso, which for us addicts - is essential. We spent a memorable New Years Eve with Alex & Ingrid at Ristorante Da Ciacco - cannot praise the food & company enough. Alex kindly drove 20 minutes to the railway station to bring a bag we had left behind. (We took up his suggestion to hire a car from Chiusi -perfect.) On some days our children didn't leave the farmhouse they were so happy with it (& the kittens.)Thank you! Thank you!
