We spent a lovely fall week in the one bedroom Il Granaio apartment. The apartment was beautifully restored, the high wood beam ceilings and arched windows set the tone for the well furnished rooms, huge bath and shower, and a well equipped kitchen. We did much of our own cooking, shopping daily in the nearby old town or the very well stocked Coop supermarket just a few minutes drive away. Even though all three apartments were full, it was very quiet and private, and the views from the apartment were spectacular.
In less than an hours drive we visited Florence and her museums, Sienna's stone walls and towers, Cortona's steep ancient stone streets, and several of the multitude of nearby wineries. Driving in Italy was very easy, the mountain roads and views were amazing, however be sure to bring or rent a GPS (I only got lost by design).
Daniel and Manuela were perfect hosts, responding to every request quickly yet allowing us privacy in the beautiful country setting, and shared with us their house made wine. We were able to watch them harvest and crush the 2015 crop, we hope to be back to sample the finished product in a few years.
Out first trip to Italy and Tuscany, we felt welcome, comfortable, and highly recommend the area and especially Villa Ceppeto hosted by Daniel and Manuela.
