My daughter and I were fortunate to "stumble" on this place looking for a night to stay. Very nice and secluded but close to the town of Pienza with magnificent views of the town and countryside. Comfortable very large room, large sitting/living area with what looked like a full kitchen. I hear that Lucia's mother does cooking classes.
What a location, the views on the road driving down, we knew we had hit the jackpot! This was truly were I could have easily stayed the full 3 weeks of my trip. Lucia is warm and helpful, getting us a wonderful dinner reservation. And her dad is a sweetheart too.
What else, can I say but the best. thank you Lucia for taking us in for the night.
