Claudia and Carlo are exemplary hosts.
My friend and I rented a car in Florence to get to the La Canonica di Fungaia and unfortunately despite our best efforts and our rental car's gps, we got lost. We stopped at a small pizzeria and Carlo was good enough to come and get us and guided us back. We were very grateful. Once we arrived Claudia showed us our room. The rooms are big and immaculate. Breakfast is an experience unto itself. Just wow. Fresh squeezed juices, thermos of American coffee, espresso, dozens of teas, homemade cakes and pastries, local cheeses, prosciutto, salami, yoghurts, breads, croissants, eggs made to order blended with fresh local cheese. Your table is situated outside facing the Tuscan countryside.
We stayed two nights and spent one day visiting Sienna. When we got back we decided to open a bottle of wine we bought in Montalcino. Our corkscrew broke and Claudia offered to give us a bottle of her own wine. I declined and instead got some pliers and removed the cork with a little help from her brother in law. When he saw my wine, he told Claudia that it really needed some proper glasses and so Claudia went into her own dining room and returned with some beautiful crystal wine glasses. Thank you so much Claudia. My friend and I sat out by the pool and enjoyed the wine and listened to the crickets and watched the stars. There is wifi by the pool too (they just realized it could reach that far).
You will love La Canonica di Fungaia. Highly recommended.
