My husband and I spent our 30th wedding anniversary in Tuscany. This home is historic and magnificent, extremely clean with a large well equipped kitchen. It was within a short driving distance from several beautiful walled cities, we visited Castiglion Fiorentino, Cortona and Siena. Although there was only two of us we stayed in the two bedroom unit, plenty of room for another couple or children. They have a large kitchen, dining room and seating area. No television but a VCR with videos. We had an iPad and were able to download shows and movies to watch at our convenience. Barbara and John are amazing hosts and take so much pride in their home. They provided a welcome package that included coffee, milk, tea, fruit, fresh flowers and herbs. We will return someday.
The view from our apartment looked over the valley and hills with amazing sunsets. Our one bedroom apartment was spacious and comfortable with a large terrace where we ate all of our meals and enjoyed the view and sunsets. Our hosts were friendly and very helpful with advice on sites, restaurants and shops. The road up is steep and twisty but well worth it. The location is only about 20 minutes from Cortona and Arezzo. You can walk out the door and a good hike to the mountain top with an excellent lookout over three valleys. A great place to spend a week in Tuscany . . . we spent two weeks!
