We had an absolutely wonderful week at Cretaiole. The accomodations are charming, spacious, and clean. But it is the warmth of the family and Carlotta that really make this special. As many have noted, Isabella's giant notebook explains the many local sights, how to get everywhere, where to eat, and even where to safely park (an important concern!). This, and the cell phone provided, led to day after day of wonderful adventures. The classes and tours offered were too numerous to enjoy in just a week - we'll have to return! But the most memorable aspect of the stay is the conversations we had with Carlotta, Isabella and Luciano. We were treated like friends, not just customers. As a result, we had an opportunity to experience Italy at a more personal level. We are deeply appreciative of the experience we had.
