Wow - what a gorgeous place to stay! The feel of a luxe boutique hotel, in a stunning location, with the personal service of a small B&B makes for the most amazing stay. The house is a no-expense spared designer barn conversion with every little luxury provided. The views across the Tuscan countryside are just breathtaking (and that's before you spot a deer, black squirrel or hare hopping across the fields). But what really makes it so good is that Malvin and Amanda are such lovely hosts. They say they're 'accidental hoteliers' (they're an English couple who originally built this as a holiday home) but clearly they are made for it! From the moment we arrived and were welcomed with (too many!) glasses of prosecco to the morning we left with a little package of leftover still-warm home-baked chocolate brownies, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts in particular were amazing. We thought home-baked muffins for pre-breakfast-in-bed were a big enough treat, but then breakfast itself involves home-baked bread, fresh ricotta from the local farm, local honey, homemade yogurt, freshly squeezed juice, and endless espressos. Heaven. Italians don't really 'do' breakfast, but Malvin does - and then some!! Make sure you take his advice about local trips, sights and restaurants too - we loved all his suggestions, in fact the local restaurant he recommended (il Fornacino) was the most memorable meal of our whole trip. All up, we had an absolutely blissful couple of days here, the only downside being that it just wasn't long enough! Already thinking of how and when we can return!! Thanks again Malvin and Amanda, and don't change a thing!
