"Heartfelt thanks to both Lucy and Jorge for making our first trip to Italy the best I could have ever imagined! We couldn't have been happier that we found their villa. The two of them are such special people and my husband and I both agree that our time spent at their wonderful villa was truly the best part of our entire trip! We mean that sincerely!
It's not every day that you meet people so warm and welcoming as these two owners were from the moment we arrived! They made us feel like their long lost family and we loved just sitting there spending time with them and hearing their stories about their amazing life experiences! We even willing gave up a trip to Sienna one day because we were enjoying spending time at the villa with them so much! To us, they represented the heart of Tuscany and the experience that we wanted from a trip to Italy! You can read about and visit all the cultural spots, but nothing can compare to just sitting around a table in a beautiful surrounding and drinking coffee or sipping wine with people who are so connected to the area and make you feel like family!
Their villa is beautiful but it's the two of them that makes it not just a beautiful place, but somewhere you just don't want to leave! It may be hard for others to image that some of our favorite times of the entire trip were when we were sitting with them eating Lucy's delicious food and hearing both Jorge and Lucy's stories. They even included us and six others, who were also staying at the villa, to join them and a group of 12 of their personal friends, for a Sunday brunch. This wasn't a part of our package and just shows a small sampling of their generosity and hospitality. They couldn't have made the day more special! We all gathered around a lovely set table outdoors that was adorned with beautiful flowers and nestled under a vined arbor, with a beautiful view of the surrounding hills and olive groves. It was like we knew each other for years...we definitely made new lifelong friends. It was really my definition of a perfect day in Tuscany! Lucy's homemade cannelloni were so light and her sauce so delicious! I wish I had been there longer so we could have taken one of her famous cooking classes. She also made the best Zabaglione with fresh berries that I have ever tasted. We are so grateful to both of them for sharing their beautiful home with us! They will forever be family and we can't wait until we return to see them again!"
