The owner, David, sets the tone of peace and tranquility. He was there with a warm greeting every time we arrived back at the villa. Beautiful flowers abound. The décor is traditional Tuscany - both inside and out. The food is cooked to perfection and paired with delicious wines. We chose to stay in a private cottage which was enchanting....
