We spent four evenings at Monte Poni. I wish it would have been a whole week. Close to San Gimignano and Volterra. You do not want to miss Panzano, about 8 KM away, a quaint town with a world renowned butcher, Dario Cecchini.
We wanted to go to Lucca, but spending a day on the property won over the day trip. I'm glad we spent the day there, we unwound from about 10 days of sightseeing, driving and overloading on a packed schedule. We rented the 2-bedroom apartment. A huge benefit, we made dinner all four nights. Shopping in Greve is easy and fun. A nice Co-Op, on Thursday morning a fresh fish market, the butcher in town and we found a fresh pasta shop. Also, buy your wine at the small wine shops and Pastry shops. Amazing deals for 5 to 10 euros.
Deidre was a perfect host, she lent us her map, shared great sights and her laid back feel made us comfortable and feeling at home.
