if i could give six (or ten) stars, i would. i spent 5 weeks here this fall (home six days ago and i miss it already). the house is... heaven. giampoalo has done an amazing job with the renovation - truly top notch - and the layout is spectacular for a group that also needs some space to themselves (e.g. every bedroom has an ensuite bathroom).
giuliana, the house manager, is a gem. she takes care of everything, makes a mean pasta and gnocchi and is all smiles. the experience exceeded every expectation that i had!
i should also say: i had ~50 friends come and stay with me over the course of the time that i was there and this opinion was universal. we're not an easy crowd to please. really truly and literally spectacular. highly recommended. really.
About the Host, Giampaolo
I enjoy the beauty of silence, great local food and, most often, I enjoy the company of friends visiting. the house is perfect for groups of friends who want to share living togheter but at the same time preserving their own privacy. The heart of it all is the big professional kitchen which makes cooking a great experience for the entire company.
