Although hard to locate so be sure to have excellent directions beforehand, this "jewel of a Tuscany villa" is worth the search. The view of the beautifully manicured grounds from your bedroom window or off one of the deck area's gave me an instant feeling of peace and goodwill. I know many or all of the others from Calgary felt the same. Although we enjoyed many day trips away from the Villa it was always like returning home because of the hospitality displayed by the family. Rosa cooked the best Italian cuisine using herbs and oil that came from the gardens of the property. Nicholi and Sara seemed to cater to every wish and we will never forget any of them. I hope to return.
