Such a lovely location. We loved the gardens, the countryside and the town of Certaldo. The old town is great. Very convenient to get to other places. We did Florence by train and San Gimiagnano, Sienna, Pisa, Lucca and Chianti by car. Maria and Mary were so accommodating and helped us feel welcome. Thanks you.
