I’ve just read the other reviews, and they only make me wish we were back at Podere Felceto!
All the details that others have mentioned are true: the main house is perfect – big enough for a group, but not too big. The pool: you couldn’t ask for a more spectacular setting. The grapevine-covered patio, where we ate every meal. The special meals, from the olive oil tasting in the cellar to La Divina Pizza to Jacopo. The wine and olive oil that come from the groves and vines of Podere Felceto are absolutely the best – we never drank another red wine during our stay!
We took some days to explore nearby towns, but our favorite days were those spent at the farmhouse, swimming, relaxing in the hammock, playing ping-pong, taking in the view. Our kids, ages 8 & 4, were in heaven and were never bored.
As so many others have said, Roberto and Jussara (along with their daughters) are the finest example of hosts – fun, welcoming, funny, knowledgeable. We miss them now that we’re home!
This really is as good as it gets.
Thanks for the trip of a lifetime, Del Mastio family!
