We stayed at Fattoria from June 5 to 9 and used it as a base to tour the smaller towns as well as wine country. We had arranged horseback riding (for her) and Italian cooking lessons (for both of us) on June 6 to celebrate Kathleen's b'day. I can rightly say it was the highlight of our month long stay in Italy. Berenice was always friendly and helpful and translated for the cooking lessons. The room was great and there was good common space that allow us to meet and get to know other guests. We would recommend it to anyone visiting Tuscany.
