Fantastic place! We will be back!


We had a FANTASTIC time in Italy. The concierge Babette was invaluable! She had great places for us to eat and visit and was very, very helpful overall. The house, as usual, was fantastic! We also would highly recommend Salvadonica, a hotel with a restaurant just around the corner from the house. We stayed there friday night and the rooms were great, and the food and staff wonderful. We took everyone to dinner there on wednesday of our week and we had a great dinner!! Hope you had a great summer! And as always, working with you was great! Thanks!
