Gabriel met us in Loro Ciuffenna and took us up to the Villa which was quite an experience the first time! It felt like we were above everyone and everything else! The villa is rustic, but perfect for a relaxing vacation. After the crowds and bustle of Rome it was just what we needed! We had many great adventures, often visiting local villages or wineries that Riccardo had recommended for us. Thank-you for sharing your vacation home with us Riccardo - we will be sure to tell our friends. It was an amazing experience - one we will never forget!

The location is ideal for access to all the principal tourist destinations in Tuscany. The surroundings are quiet therby permitting a relaxing holiday. The pool area was clean and tidy. We enjoyed it so much that we stayed a bit longer than we had originally planned.
