First, my apologies to Antonella for not writing this review sooner.
My girlfriend and I were there in September 2013. What a lovely place! It was all we hoped it would be once we get there and we had such a great time. It really felt like perfect home we loved getting back to after all-day long walks around Florence. Having a breakfast in outside garden alone was worth it! Not to mention beautiful mediterranean styled interior as well. It's an awesome place to relax, very quiet, with truly gorgeous gardens.
The rooms were very clean, and bathroom was nice as well. On a downside, the bed was a bit uncomfortable and noisy, but everything else was just perfect.
Antonella is such a nice person, and a great host. Always friendly and smiling, she was there when we needed her, but gave us all the privacy we could want.
Last but not least, the dogs! First, they're HUGE! But after just a minute or so you spend around them, you realize that one of them spends all the time in the world figuring out the best spot to lay down and sleep, while the other one is sweet as a baby and wants to cuddle and play with you all day long! Two fascinating dogs!:)
Thank you Antonella for having us stay at your place. We had nothing but a great time.
All the best,
- Zeljko and Dijana
Even though we did not have the privilege to personally meet Antonella she did prepare a small basket of goodies & a very sweet welcome letter.
Rose & Jack were great host, durning our stay...they were so gentle. My husband surprised me with a nice Italian dinner prepared by Julia.
The place is quiet, great view of the vineyards....would have loved to stay longer. We would highly recommend Antonella's place.
Antonella has a beautiful house with a view of the Tuscan you amazed eyes! dinner we with the products of his garden was just as delicious.
my children want to go back very much longer.
Our experience at Antonella's home was fantastic! Her place in Toscany was absolutely charming and absolutely spotless.....everything you see in the pictures and more! Antonella provided us a lovely breakfast each day and also gave us wonderful information of things to do in the area and directions on how to find them. She was more accurate and easier to follow than our GPS. I recommend staying at Antonell'a for an absolutely superb stay in Toscany!

About the Host, Antonella
Salve ,sono Antonella, sono un'insegnante di scuola elementare che adora i bambini, gli animali, la campagna . Fiorentina di nascita, abito in campagna da vari anni e conosco ogni angolo di queste splendide colline.
Sarò felice di indicarvi itinerari particolari e insoliti, svelarvi qualche piccolo segreto, luoghi dove assaggiare squisite ricette a lume di candela, dove ascoltare concerti all'aperto, dove noleggiare cavalli o passare un giorno alle terme.
