    thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We have had a perfect weather, Tuscan food and wine and sight-seeing, but our favourite memories will be the time spent at the Villa looking out over the hillside If life ever brings you to Virginia we would be happy to show you around. With gratitude.

    I am writing to tell you what a wonderful week we had at the Villa. It was a perfect home for us - the beautiful setting, the lovely rooms, the fantastic people who work there. We enjoyed cooking with Susanna, greeting Franca and Nella in the mornings, and talking to Nic again and again about his farm and all of his wonderful garden specialties. He introduced us to his friend, Robin, who produced the wine we enjoyed every evening. Laura cooked us an amazing meal for our last night. Even though the weather was colder and wetter than we had hoped, we managed to spend some time outside each day. It was a fantastic vacation for everyone. Thanks for helping us find the Villa. I hope someday we will be able to come back.

    PW, USA
