Camilla and Alberto are fantastic hosts. Friendly, energetic, interesting and accommodating. They made us feel at home. We enjoyed chatting with them and learning more about their home, Tuscany, Siena, Alberto's work, etc. Camilla speaks perfect English and was a pleasure to chat with. Alberto may not speak English (and we don't speak Italian), but we managed to have some great conversations in spite of the language barrier.
The property is just gorgeous. Rustic and beautiful with sweeping vistas. Alberto has many of his sculptures throughout the property. We loved it. We stayed in the La Grande portion of the villa which includes 3 bedrooms a large living room, large dining room and a beautiful deck.
We visited with our three kids (17, 9 and 6) and we had a great time. The younger ones enjoyed exploring the farm and visiting the animals.
In addition to a few restaurants within a 5 minute drive, Camilla and Alberto also offer some meal options. They made us a delicious dinner the night we arrived and we had a pizza party the last night. Both meals were excellent!
It is also very convenient to travel to Siena (15-20 min), Florence (45 min) and many Tuscan hill towns.
We really enjoyed our time and highly recommend their beautiful property. We look forward to going back someday. Thank you Camilla and Alberto!
