After spending a few days unwinding in beautiful Positano, we made the drive to Umbria to experience Torre del Maggio. Gian, you made me look very good to the entire group. There are few places that stand out in so many different ways. Not only is it a beautiful house in a gorgeous location, but you also have wonderful seclusion from the neighbors, a house that is laid out so that everyone can have as much privacy as they desire, all of the conveniences in the house you look for on vacation and on top of all that, a host that has such a big heart. Who could ask for more?
Gian happily jumped in to make suggestions before the trip, including a cooking class at the house with Giovanni and a wine/food pairing in Orvieto, then when we arrived put up with our abundant questions about the house, land, town, grape harvesting, and much more. A tour of Perugia and a wonderful lamb truffle dinner in the mountains with Gian just put the trip over the top.
If you have the chance to stay here, I cannot emphasize enough that you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity! Thank you, Gian, for sharing your wonderful house with us. If you are ever in Southern California or Colorado you have friends to stay with.
