review 4 Jan 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The entire stay was perfect. The best part was the hospitality. Francesca, Francesco, and Stella really make guests feel at home. All the farm fresh food was amazing. It was wonderful to be able to share meals with them and the other guests.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Definitely get out and explore the area. Go on the truffle hunting trip. Take walks. Check out nearby towns that are a bit off the standard tourist path like Lucca.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Sure. Staying on a farm, eating fresh vegetables, fruits, cheese, and honey benefited the local people almost as much as we benefited from partaking.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I absolutely loved this vacation! The best way to spend time in another country is to experience genuine life there; not be part of the mob of tourists. We have recommended this trip to all of our friends.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We would struggle to pick out one outstanding moment from the whole vacation; not because there weren't any, but because they were too numerous to mention. From fantastic cookery lessons in authentic Italian cuisine and walking the Tuscan hills at night searching for wolves, to touring the local area in a classic Fiat Cinquecento and spending beautiful sunsets being pampered in the hot tub. This is a vacation full of exciting and memorable moments.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

There is real flexibility on this vacation and there are many fantastic activity options that can be tried. The hosts are extremely friendly and accommodating, so you can really get the tour tailor-made to suit your tastes and interests.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The environmental credentials of the accommodation are impeccable. The hosts are active in the implementation of many traditional and environmentally friendly land-management techniques and they have strong links with many local producers and guides, who facilitate many of the activities. You will be immersed in authentic regional lifestyle and culture.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We cannot recommend this vacation highly enough. The ability of the hosts to create a bespoke itinerary which could be adjusted to suit all tastes, was combined with an enthusiastic and incredibly friendly welcome in the most beautiful location. What's not to like?
