Beautiful house, beautiful setting

This was our final stop on our tour of Italy, and I have to say, we saved the best til last. Casa di Chianti was nestled in the Tuscan hillside and offered some welcome peace and quiet after the hustle and bustle of the likes of Rome and Venice. Our family of four stayed in the loft room, which the kids (13 and 11) loved. Downstairs we had access to a living room/kitchen, where our host, Isabella, would lay out breakfast for us every morning. Each day we had a different treat to sample, but the kids loved the freshly baked chocolate croissants.
We were a short drive to Scandicci where we could easily park the car for free and get on the tram to take us into Florence.
Isabella was extremely helpful and accommodating, and on our final day, Paulo offered to take us for a tour of local farms, fatorria and shops to buy the best local produce. I have to say, this was the highlight for myself and my wife and something you would not get if you stayed in a hotel.
I cannot recommend this place enough. You get such a better experience here than you would at a hotel. We would definitely come back if we visit Italy again.
