As soon as you step into the Palazzo Farrattini you are magically transformed back in time. You are warmly greeted by the two nicest people of this fine establishment and they know all there is to know of the rich history of their country. They give you a terrific tour of the castle and you are in awe of how old and wonderful it is. The rooms are terrific and beautiful and it is such a joy to spend the nights looking up at the beauty of the ceilings as you fall asleep. And if you want to just spend a relaxing time by the pool over looking the amazing country side or just reading by the olive groves, you will be amazed. Walking the quaint streets of the town and shopping in the little shops was a real treat and no matter if you don't speak the language, everyone there are so helpful and friendly that those barriers were not a problem for me. Ettore and Scott were such wonderful hosts that you will find it hard to leave and say good bye. You will just have to return and visit again! I would recommend the Palazzo Farrattini to anyone who is looking for that perfect romantic vacation of a lifetime.
