We had a wonderful time. Martina and her family are the most gracious hosts! The wine tour and tasting was fantastic, the various wines we enjoyed from the vineyard were excellent. The home has a great layout - bedrooms were huge, the kitchen was well stocked, and the patio was incredible. Sitting out there with a glass of wine in the evening was so relaxing. We had a private chef (Michaela from Il Fiasco) who cooked a delicious meal. The home is close to Castellina (quick drive - or a walk for the young and fit) which is a lovely town, and close enough for a quick drive to other hill towns and Florence and Sienna. It was a fantastic experience that we hope to repeat again soon!
Local attractions We enjoyed the town of Castellina, as well as Sienna and San Gimignano.
