Amazing Find in Tuscan Wine Country

4.8 on April 28, 2017

What a fantastic find! Tucked away on a hillside in a tiny village is this totally cool little B&B. Dario and Marie are such gracious and entertaining hosts, attending to every need, they are very knowledgeable about the area and all the local places to visit. Wineries, restaurants, horseback riding, hiking, even a charming amusement park are close by. Take a walk through the tiny town and you are transported back in time!!
