Stay: July 2010
What were the highlights of your holiday? the amazing house was topped of with Martha's sublime cooking. The surpise 500 Touring Club of Italy day trip I'd arrnaged for all involved winery visit, lunch and driving in and around Firenze and the Tuscan hills in classic Fiat 500's
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Better than described, the photo's do not do it justice and also fail to conveys Enzo's fabulous hospitality and enthusiasm for both home and region
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? Only clarity about that daily costs for cooking as we'd misinterpeted the explanation, having said that we would definitely still have a Martha cook for us next time!!!
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Enzo's a great host, has great taste and in near future a second property for other to experience, we'll be posting our recommendations and comments on Tripadvisor definitely
