Il Torriano was perfectly situated for our flight into Pisa (1h30min) and our excursions to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, and Cinque Terre. The house and grounds are a 10 minute walk to nearby Monte Firidolfi where there is a restaurant and a 5-10 minute drive to a couple of larger towns with supermarkets (not open on Sundays!) The grounds were perfectly maintained and the unit we stayed in was very comfortable and spacious for the self catering holiday we wanted. The pool is clean and excellent for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing and driving (remember to get a swimcap somewhere!). We used the barbecue facility 3/7 nights and the grounds keeper very kindly supplied us with offcuts from the vineyard. Patrizia was the best host I have come across for a while. She greeted us with a big smile and provided very interesting local insights into the bi-annual Palio, history of Il Torriano and introduced us to the very passionate winemaker at La Sala. The grapes growing on Il Torriano is of the best in the region and is used in the wine production at La Sala. Needless to say we bought loads of wine after the excellent wine tasting experience which was accompanied by local bread and extraordinary tasting olive oil (also produced by Patrizia's family). Our stay there was great value and we would definitely go back, especially after tasting Patrizia's homemade ice cream.

Our flight had been delayed and our daughters arrived before us. Andrea made sure they were welcomed, comfortable and even fed them. During our entire stay, our wonderful hosts were never too far away to help us with a restaurant suggestion or where to find the best pastries in the quaint little town of San Casciano. We were centrally located, making for easy trips to Florence, Chianti and Greve.The villas were beautifully appointed and well stocked. The views were breathtaking!! The highlight of our trip was a special dinner prepared in our villa by a local chef named Patrizia. We had asked Andrea if we could have someone come in and cook for us one night. The five course dinner she prepared was perhaps, the best meal we had eaten in all of our travels through Italy. Not to mention the memories she created for us. If you want to treat yourself, I highly suggest you do this! The only disappointment was leaving this beautiful paradise. I felt like we were leaving family! I can not wait to return! I wonder if they would take me in as a permanent resident?! Brad and Dianna Geist Marlton, NJ, USA
