Against my inner voice, I will add my praise to the Sannino's, to all the others. I dare anyone who has stayed at Anthony and Lisa's Tuscan-inspired retreat, to write a negative comment about the accommodations, hospitality, breakfast, and oh, yeah - the wine - that the Sannino's provide to their guests. There was a personal wine rack with selections from their vineyard which guests can purchase - their Spotlight red was outstanding compared to the countless other labels we have enjoyed in this wine region over several years. Our first stay was in their original villa on the second floor and it was home at first sight. The following year, my husband and I spent literally hours over the course of 2 weeks, struggling with the decision of whether we should experience their newly added Tuscan Villa, since we had been so happy with our initial experience. We did end up staying in the villa. Both accommodations are equally satisfying in every aspect. Although prima colazione isn't our main focus, Lisa's are simply, superbo! My family was successful in the hospitality industry for generations, and I am compelled to share with you my astonishment at how the Sannino's manage to deliver all they have to offer guests while managing the business, the vineyard, and all the while looking like they just returned from a holiday. They make it look so easy. This is why we can totally relax in the atmosphere they have created for couples such as us, who desire privacy while being catered to, feeling totally comfortable and invited into their space. Did I mention the wine?
