Bichi is situated amongst the rolling hills of Tuscany, surrounded by its own olive groves and vineyards. The estate is seeped in history, dating back to the 17th century and is well documented by an avid family photographer. No wonder it's also a desired location for wedding receptions. I cannot say enough about the fantastic hospitality of Paola, Vittorio and Gigliola, who were generous with their time and wealth of local knowledge. Both my husband and I feel like we have made new friends.
Paola also introduced us to her friend Orsa, who runs cookery courses and a lovely villa tucked away in the woods 20 mins away. We prepared a Tuscan 3 course meal, which we all enjoyed accompanied with wine. It was great and relaxed. Unlike London, one can really relax and feel that time is not a factor, only the experience is important.
If you are looking for a place where you feel welcome, relaxed and still be situated close to fantastic lively Tuscan towns, then Bichi is perfect.
