Tuscan Home Away From Home
My wife and I cannot adequately describe how very much we enjoyed our five days in this gem of a Tuscan farmhouse. After five days of sightseeing Silvana's directions that got us from the Rome airport to this property in a rental car were perfect. Silvana's genuinely warm welcome, the sparkling clean apartment, and the peaceful solititude of this location were breathtakingly beautiful and stood in stark contrast to the bustle of Rome. Piergiorgio and Silvana are the perfect host and hostess who were sincerely happy to welcome us to their home. They met us with a bottle of their neighbor's wine, arranged a tour for us in Siena, recommended hikes in the countryside, and daily gave us directions and tips for trips to abbys and Tuscan towns. The Hedera apartment (one of five 1-bedroom apartments) was superbly maintained and pristinely clean. The grounds were beautifully landscaped and neatly trimmed. The gorgeous pool sparkled. The village of Buonconvento is conveniently close to shop for groceries, gas, and an inexpensive bite to eat in the evening. We were given access to Silvana's vegetable and herb gardens should we have wanted to cook. June was a perfect month to enjoy open windows, warm afternoons, and cool evening breezes. The highlight of each day was our evening antipasto of fresh fruit, cheese, and a Tuscan wine at our patio table while we soaked up the stunning view. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We will be back.
