"Exceeded my expectations"
“Exceeded my expectations”
5 of 5 starsReviewed July 20, 2012
This trip was a surprise birthday present from my husband. Although I love to cook and had been looking forward to visiting Italy, I was anxious about traveling alone. I shouldn't have worried. Lauretta met me at the car upon my arrival and everyone on the staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable. Paola, the chef, is an excellent teacher and one of the funniest people you'll ever meet.
We were a small group. There were only 4 of us and we bonded right away. We travelled together to Sienna on our free day and got in some quality shopping time. Paola arranged a rental car for us on Friday morning. We toured a local monastery and Poppi castle.
The accommodations are lovely and the setting is serene. The only sounds you'll hear are the birds in the trees and a neighbor's rooster in the distance. This trip was a dream come true and I look forward to returning one day with my daughter.
