Albergo La Foresteria : TOP MARKS
I will list why this hidden gem remains our home on our yearly visits to Tuscany.
* Perfectly situated close to the autostrada/provincial highway for Tuscan and Umbrian excursions. All major attractions are within 30 minutes to 2 hours drive (Montalcino, Montepulciano, Assisi, Sienna, Gubbio, Chianto Road, Todi....on and on). Pump in the GPS or use your map for effortless excursions to the sights of these two regions.
* Clean, comfortable and restful accommodations to recuperate from daily excursions.
* Fuel station adjacent to hotel to keep your car rental ready for trips.
* The most fantastic pizza in Italy cooked lovingly by Raphael (who is from Naples). I personally have seen Raphael pick up ingredients daily, fresh from the market to create his masterpieces that range from 4-8 EURO.....simply incredible pizzas.
* Fine for solo, couple or family travellers....rooms of all types available.
* Complimentary breakfast in the morning with artisan cakes and pastries cooked fresh daily.
* Assistance from Raphael, Mario and Luca with local outlet mall shopping, wineries and tips on bargains locally. For example, Raphael called a local "Cantina" and we purchased the famous "Brunello" wines at wholesale prices.
* Again, returning to the menu. Extensive wine list, including a bargain "rosso" and "blanco" table wine that would shame most wine lists in America. Excellent Tuscan Fare that has affordable dishes with truffles and the famous "Fiorentini" steak.
* It is reassuring to stay in a place away from home where your security and safety is not an issue. This combined with a good sleep and delicious food, make for a stress free home away from home base.
Our family has travelled Italy 22 times in the last 20 years.......Albergo la Foresteria is our Tuscan pick over all others.
