A group of family and friends converged on Jens' place in mid-December for holiday. The villa is lovely: well decorated, plenty of bathrooms, nice kitchen for large family-style cooking, common rooms for socializing. The views from the villa are spectacular and the location is awesome for day trips around Tuscany especially Siena and San Gimignano . Jens offers cooking classes, wine tours, and olive oil tours/tastings. We availed ourselves of the olive oil tasting which was a special bonus - we all loved it - and Jens also showed us the production side. Overall, a great vacation location for relaxing or for exploring the country-side.
