Do yourselves a favour…stay here as long as possible! My Husband and I spent 10 glorious days here in September 2012, I have not got round to writing a review of Le Traverse….so now I have a moment to do so. Pinuccia could not have been a more charming, welcoming & helpful hostess. We arrived very late at night after getting lost…and bless her, she was there to welcome us, making us feel at home right away. Our room was fabulous, wine (made from her own grapes), glasses and fruit beautifully set out, the interior just as I imagined a Tuscany Farmhouse to be..however the best was yet to come as we threw open the shutters in the morning and looked out over the Val D'Orcia's rolling Valleys to Pienza perched up on the hill….we were 'Living the Dream' ! Breakfast was laid out on a table in our own loggia, home made cakes, fresh fruit from the orchard, coffee & tea, all served by a smiling Alyssia. Pinuccias knowledge of the surrounding area and her advice on where to eat and what to see and do was extremely helpful, she would come and sit with us every morning and ask us what we felt like doing or seeing and her advice was always 'spot-on'. Le Traverse is set in the perfect spot to sit back, relax and just enjoy your surroundings, either by the sparkling pool or under the shade of the Loggia, or drive to the many walled villages and immerse yourself into the Tuscany lifestyle. i could not fault Le Traverse at all…we even got invited to help with "the Grapes Harvest". We have kept in contact with Pinuccia and We will be forever grateful to her for helping us to 'Live the Dream'. We will be back….definitely! Sue & Gary….Sydney, Australia. (PS have beautiful Photos could not upload at time but will add to Review if and when I can).
