'Dear Veronica, as last year we have enjoyed our stay at Villa La Quercia very much. With its ideal location close to Florence, in beautiful surroundings, together with your hospitality, has made our vacation more than a success! We look forward already to be back, do some running in the morning, relax with a coffee in Impruneta, do some swimming in the pool and enjoy the culture of many historical villages in the area. We hope to meet again, possible next year. Best regards' - Mrs B. Vidra-Krul, Holland (August 21st 2009)
