‘Our very warm and caring hosts helped make our stay an exceptionally memorable one. Thank you Egle and Claudia!!!! From the beautifully furnished spacious rooms, a kitchen well-stocked with every item we might need, comfortable bedrooms and ensuites, to the magical vistas seen from almost every room, we fell in love with Egle straight away. However it was our interaction with our lovely hosts that made it extra special and their assistance in every way.
We used the gorgeous dining room on several occasions but with fabulous weather, chose to eat at our favourite table outside overlooking the beautiful garden and Tuscan countryside. The kitchen and BBQ were perfect for our group to cook large meals and our hosts organised a fabulous Italian Cooking Class with the lovely Francesco, at our request, which was lots of fun - great for adding to our cooking skills and Italian vocabulary!!!
The large pool and relaxing pool lounge area was well used by all of us, morning and afternoon; the gym was an added bonus and we did lots of walks along the local roads.
I have a food intolerance and our hosts were incredibly helpful and generous in supplying many gluten-free foods that I could eat to help make my stay much easier. This was so unexpected but so appreciated!!
Thank you so much Egle and Claudia. We are enchanted by your beautiful home and gardens (especially all the roses) and can't wait to recommend it to others and return once again to enjoy your beautifully decorated Villa and manicured gardens. Grazie and arrivederci.
