Fantastic Time in Charming Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late on Jan 11 and notified the caretaker that we were on our way. Check in was simple and the place is charming. It is off the main road but with directions finding it was not a problem. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The caretaker was very helpful as we bothered her often for advice. We visited Pisa, Firenze, Siena and all were a short drive away. Volterra and San Gimignano were beautiful cities lost in time. The kids loved Volterra as it was the backdrop for the Twilight series. All in all we had a great time and would love to visit again. No regrets just great moments!!
