A perfect place to stay!A beautiful setting! Had everything we needed. Centrally located to many tourist cities.The area couldn't have been any more beautiful.The days began with the sun rising outside our bedroom window. Looking out the window,I saw the rolling countryside-felt like I was opening the windows in the movie Sound of Music.The casa was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated in and out.Several pots of flowers met us on arrival. Had absolutely everything we needed for living, sleeping, cooking and eating. TV,DVD,toaster,coffee pot,expresso maker,hair dryer,iron,microwave,convection oven,washer, dryer,... Enough linens for a few weeks. There were staples like spices,salt,oil,coffee beans, paper goods,... waiting there for us,we did have to grocery shop, of course.The stores weren't far, but watch the hours.Later in the year, I hear guests are invited to enjoy their vegatable garden.Without traveling more than an hour each way, we visited 1 or 2 tourist cities every day.And it was a beautiful ride to every one of them! The casa had books and maps so you could look for places to visit also. A notebook left by the owner contained all kinds of very useful information about the area and the casa. Even the neighbors were great - very friendly and very helpful.We really enjoyed them and miss them. Like cats? There was even a cat that waited at the door the first few mornings in hopes that the new people would feed him. We'd all go back. It's my husband's 2nd time here.
Casa Alina is truly magnificent place to vacation! It is centrally located if you want to see the real Tuscany! It was a great home to return to after a day full of shopping, site seeing and wine tasting! Laura's pesto lasagna was amazing!!!
