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.

For the most part of the year, this region is soaked by the sun and cooled by a fresh breeze, making it the perfect summer destination for the beach lovers.

Conquered by many different ancient civilizations – Greeks, Romans, Turks, Franks, Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Bourbons - Apulia treasures an impressive collection of castles, great artistic and cultural heritage, and important archeological sites. Besides the magnificent beaches and the crystal clear waters, Apulia’s highlights include the unique village of Alberobello with its white-washed trulli lining the streets, the natural wonders of the famous Grottoes of Castellana and Fasano, the baroque city of Lecce, Ostuni, nicknamed la città bianca due to the picturesque white stone houses and churches, and - last but not least - the captivating food reflecting centuries of mixed cultural influences. The only con to visiting this region is…so much to experience, so little time!
