A second visit to the beloved Relais San Pietro in Polvano proved to us what many canny travelers to Tuscany already know: Owner, Signor Luigi Protti deserves legendary status. As if from an earlier time when courtly respect was the rule, the diminutive host, clad in bespoke striped shirts, perfectly paired with Italian silk ties and impeccably tailored trousers, makes it a point to extend a personal, warm welcome to the fortunate travellers whose GPS devices have successfully navigated the winding Tuscan village roads leading to his serene haven---a scenic path, well worth taking. Signor Protti's
warm personal approach is apparent throughout one's stay as he may be seen bringing
a guest's favorite beverage---cappuccino?---herb tea?---Prosecco? on a silver tray to complement the sumptuous meals prepared by his wife, the chef. It is a family affair, a labor of love, which makes it appear effortless to provide such memorable stays in the Tuscan countryside as those inspired by the "legendary" Signor Protti---an effort he has perfected while attaining the venerable age of 85. ---Truly a Prince among men.
