Testamonial 2015 (K. Hancock)

“We had a wonderfully , warm greeting with Susanne and Monica when we finally arrived on the Saturday afternoon . La Novellina was absolutely fantastic and surpassed all expectations . Of course the icing on the cake was Monica and all the family fell in love with her . Her cheerful morning greetings and wonderful surprises for breakfast each morning were a highlight . Monica also prepared 3 evening meals , one in the dining room , which were all wonderful .

We thought the villa and facilities were really great and the children loved the pool as the weather was perfect . We also bumped into and had a few conversations with Nick who was very helpful – I am sure he comes from a very nice family . Helen in fact also had a chat to Luisa on the Monica’s phone just as we were leaving and expressed our thoughts about our time at La Novellina .

We have many fond memories to recount and are so glad we chose La Novellina ! Many thanks for all your help Jane and very best wishes – will be in touch again when planning our next trip to Italy – our favourite European country !

Toscana - Tuscany

Tuscany is the place we all dream of….The place we want to retire to, and it is that place that will echo in your heart for a life time once you have stayed there and felt the essence of the organic life that passes by there each day.

With fields of sunflowers as far as they eye can see, olive groves and vineyards lining every street corner make Tuscany’s country side a picture worth painting. With its abundance of  tiny medieval towns scattered around the hills, open air markets where locals gather each Saturday morning to offer their produce such as Truffle oil, olives, chianti wine, cured meats etc makes Tuscany the perfect place to visit for those that love food, wine and history.
