This is a gorgeous farmhouse converted lovingly to a residence. Grazia has decorated it in the beautiful simplicity of the Tuscan style. It is located about 30 min from Siena and 90 min from Florence, 30 min from wine country of Montepulciano and Montalcino. It allowed for very convenient day trips. But we loved staying at the villa. We traveled with our 4 teenage children who enjoyed feeding the horses with Oscar, playing in the pool and laying in our hammocks soaking up Tuscan relaxation.
The grocery store was a 5 min drive to Sinalunga which had all the necessary items you may need. On Tuesday morning is the market in Sinalunga. It is such fun to explore. We asked Grazia to arrange a pizza party for our group and she brought in a local pizzeria owner who taught us how to make the dough, knead it (I still didn't get technique right) and cook it. This was such a fun night!! The evening we arrived, there was a church holiday and festival happening in Farnetella. We joined in the feast and festivities. One of the local men sent his teenage daughters over to chat with our daughters and make sure they were enjoying themselves. They enjoyed Italian teenage life, with a local band playing! Grazia and Oscar were such gracious hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed and any suggestions on where to eat or go explore, they were ready with wonderful ideas. Grazie mille, Grazia and Oscar. We will be back again!!
