Tuscany Coast

We were happy to recommend a lovely B&B accommodation in a villa near the coast for 2 couples who were attending their sons’ baseball tournament in Grosseto. This beautiful 6 bedroom house can also be rented out exclusively for larger groups.

Hi Kathy,

The overall experience was awesome. 
The rooms in the farmhouse villa were very inviting. They were spacious, super clean and had everything you needed and were super comfortable and serene. We have sent you some pictures.

The air conditioners in the rooms were clutch and needed during our trip. The setting was beautiful. We were situated in the middle of a sunflower farm, how fitting in Tuscany. Francesca, the owner, made our trip! She was so nice and very helpful with dinner reservations and suggestions on where to tour in the area. She would call ahead to the restaurants and make our reservations for us in the morning. Each and every one of her recommendations was great. Her breakfasts in the morning were delicious. One day she made omelettes the next day fruit tarts. Great Italian coffee!  We looked forward to getting up!

Her support staff were very pleasant as well.

The pool grounds were immaculate and the pool was always clean and refreshing in the hot summer sun. The cabanas where the towels were supplied were always fully stocked. There were a few nights we would have liked to stay longer at the pool but the B&B had a 7pm curfew on the pool. We respected it however it seemed odd in the summer. It was still hot out and sun was still up. 

We loved our experience and were sad to go.  Your company provided exactly the experience we were hoping for.  Bravo!

Thanks again.

A Few Days in Tuscany

Hi Kathy,

We had a great few days in Tuscany - despite the occasional rain storm! 

The cheese tasting and castle winery were wonderful. It was a great way to start out, and the historic cellar is one of a kind. We also did get a chance to take a look around Antinori, which was worth it for the building alone. The trattoria you suggested for lunch was very authentic, all the men were having the steak which is always a fun ritual to witness.

It was a nice change to learn all about Siena. Your guide Antonella is quite a find. Charming and very knowledgeable. 

The driver, Francesco, was very helpful and accommodating. I think we made a good team! During the day in Montalcino, he took us to a great winery for lunch with pairings and many courses. It was a nice surprise and very economical. I wish I could remember the name, but I’m sure he knows it.

Thanks again for all of your organizing!

Family Trip to Tuscany

Hello Kathy,

We really enjoyed our B&B and every part of our trip and excursion. 

We had a fabulous day in Siena—Loved Roberta! She was wonderful!!! Francesco took good care of us, was so kind and informative. 

The lunch and wine tour was amazing!!! All of us thought it was a highlight...can’t wait to get the case of wine we ordered! 

San Gimignano (I can now pronounce it correctly) was a quick hour stop and bought terrific cheese there. 

Thank you Kathy for all of your help coordinating! We will certainly be in touch once again when traveling this way!

All my best to you-
