Perfect in every detail

This place is flat out wonderful! Not only is it clean and neat and lovingly cared for, but look around you! Every little detail is done to perfection. In short, it's just what you want a farmhouse apartment in a 1st century Tuscan hillside hamlet to look like. Yes, the photos posted here are absolutely accurate. If you stay here, you will want a car so you can explore all the famous hill towns as well as Chianti wine country, all of which are easy day trips. We especially enjoyed Volterra and Radda In Chianti. The nearby town of Poggibonsi is not good for sightseeing, but provides you with an excellent supermarket (the Coop) and easy access to roads leading everywhere. Serena Brandi is on the premises every day to guide you around the area, providing very helpful information on parking, tours, restaurants, etc. (Her English is very good, by the way.) She totally understands customer service and obviously enjoys being the proprietor of this lovely place. She might even give you a whiff of her own homegrown and heavenly olive oil. On the sad day when we left I Melograni, I promised Serena I would write her a glowing review and recommend it to everyone. And indeed I do! Thank you Serena for a memorable week in Tuscany!
