We loved our time with Soldo and Katerina!
We stayed with The Vito family at their country home in June, 2012 and loved it! For my wife and I, it was a way to celebrate our ten year anniversary and it was everything we hoped for. We want to go back! We loved the lush country setting, being able to walk to the olive orchard and well, live the Tuscan life. We ate Tuscan food they cooked for us, they showed us ways to cook the Tuscan way. Soldo was warm and inviting and so helpful for us as we planned trips to Florence, Pisa, San Gimignano and forays into that lush countryside of Tuscany. We would recommend people set aside 7 days if they can, there is just so much to see. And read a little about Tuscany on the internet. You're going to be living it at Casa Degli Olmi...The pictures of the place were representative and I guess there are videos about the country farm now too, so that helps visualize what a special place they have. You are invited to live the Tuscan life as much as you want! Much better than something commercial! They were very accomodating to whatever our schedule was and happy to help out with any questions we had about great places to go and the history of this area. We enjoyed playing with their daughter Federica and their dog Kelley too. Our seven year old daughter had a great time playing tennis and hide and seek and fetch with the dog.. and she is high maintenance, so that is high praise! Our special needs four year old son liked exploring the yard and playing with Kelly, the dog. It was GREAT for our family to be here, where we could just relax and not deal with traffic and big city living. When we got home to Colorado, we started cooking with olive oil and aromatic herbs more... We wouldn't change a thing about our stay there and hope to be back in a year or two!
