Perfect, impeccable, and an extraordinary location

5 of 5
Such an incredible experience, we have already booked another two week stay for June next year. I am not sure what I can add that has not already been said in the previous reviews. The location, house, and setting are amazing, and Kate was there to answer my emails and questions months in advance of our arrival (she booked reservations for our anniversary dinner, and also for a dinner in Rome). For my wife and I, this was our third trip to Italy, and by far the most relaxing. For three others in the group it was their first trip, and it was an incredible experience for them. There is so much to see and do in the local area, but to just sit and relax at Le Convertoie and enjoy the peaceful surroundings was well appreciated by everyone. There are also several hiking trails around the property, we explored a few and more are on the list for next year’s visit. As others mentioned, Kate is a wealth of knowledge and helped us with information on where to eat, and what to see. Her and Francesco were accommodating to our group’s needs, whether it was a day trip to Florence, or the incredible day long wine tour arranged (take advantage of this if you can) they were patient, and able to accommodate individual needs in the group. The neighbors are lovely, genuine people. Marco's wine and olive oil are great, we enjoyed many a good bottle of his wine from the cellar. We bought the last eight bottles of his 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva to enjoy in Canada. We are looking forward to his Grand Selection that will be available next year, and more of his cheese. Do not forget the cooking class with Gaia and her mom, great homemade Tuscan food that was enjoyed by all (and enough pasta left over for dinner the next day). Greve is a great town, we enjoyed the bustling market on Saturday, coffee at the café, and bread from the bakery. There are a few local restaurants we did not get to, but they are on the list for next year. Thanks Kate and Francesco for all your time and effort in helping us have an incredible vacation. Cheers, and we will ration Marco's wine to enjoy over the coming months until we return next year. Tom, Valda, Matthew, Gene, and Ruthanne Nova Scotia, Canada June 8 - June 22, 2017

Wonderful country villa close to Siena

4 of 5
Villa Santa Maria was an excellent choice for our family vacation. We had enough room for adults, couples, and children. The kitchen was small (as we have many cooks) but we managed well and loved having a dishwasher! Each bedroom has it's own air conditioner so all could rest comfortably. The villa manager and groundskeeper were very helpful and easy to work with! The pool was the perfect way to end each day of sightseeing or wine tasting - we found the location to be great to do all the things we wanted to see during our stay!
