We came to Casa Mennone with a group of friends and family, all together there were 11 adults. We had the most amazing time! The house was beautiful! It could have easily accommodated a party nearly twice our size. We made use of the large dining table, the covered terrace, and the hot tub EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. We used the pizza oven 2 nights, grilled out once, and actually had the local cook, Rosanna come in two nights. SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! In addition, our hosts, Loretta and Giuseppe, and their grown children, Elisa and Mario, made our stay truly outstanding. When we were completely lost, Loretta came to meet us and lead us where we needed to go... twice! We also got to visit Elisa's organic farm next door, which was a great experience. Lucca, which is an easy drive, was one of our favorite places. We also made easy day trips to Florence, and even to a small town near Cortona. All in all, we cannot wait to go back. Until then, I will be missing it every day! If you want to visit Tuscany, you must stay here!
