The photos shown in the listing are very accurate but do not come close to being there in person and having the history and the beauty of the house and its' surroundings wash over you. The property was very well maintained, and the personal touches of the owner's wonderful antiques and books make it easy to imagine that you are living there in your own very well-loved home. My personal favorite day was a day I stayed behind alone while the others went into Florence. Working in the wonderful Tuscan kitchen and looking through the door across the gorgeous landscape was a dream come true. And strolling through the dining room doors onto the terrace and just sitting and watching the birds soar in the quiet of the landscape was bliss as I had never imagined. Another in our group, a professional musician, was transported every time he sat down at the grand piano in the wonderful acoustically live music room. His joy of spending any spare moment at the instrument was our joy in listening. Kate kindly helped us with printing tickets for the Duomo and even met us with them in Florence near the Duomo. They were both kind and helpful in walking us through the house when we arrived and pointing out how various features work. We all enjoyed drives through the countryside and visiting several of the other Chianti villages and the drives up to the tiny villages of Lamole, Volpaia and Vertine. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone I know and I would go back again in a heartbeat, given the opportunity. Thank you so much, Kate and Francesco, for giving us memories like we've never made before.
