Wow! I really don't know where to start in writing this review... I almost don't wish to write this actually, because I want to keep this amazing Tuscan bolt-hole all to ourselves... This place is incredible!! The views here are absolutely breathtaking, possibly the most beautiful views I have ever experienced (the photography on here does not do it justice)... Suffice to say, we did not want to leave!!
If you are looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of life and simply unplug in one of the most picturesque parts of beautiful Tuscany... This is it! The air here is clean and pure and there is no traffic, it is quiet, calm, secluded and serene.
The estate offers ultimate privacy and Palmi proved to be the perfect host; always available when necessary, but never intrusive.
The cottage is absolutely charming, very quaint, with some beautifully old pieces of furniture, yet offering all modern conveniences. We cooked at the cottage, on a few occasions, and needed for nothing... There is plenty of hot water provided and the bed is very comfortable. Should you decide that you do not wish to 'unplug' entirely, wifi is provided, but in breathtakingly beautiful surroundings, who requires Internet?! I virtually never even checked my phone the whole time we were there! Enjoy the spectacular views, the wonderful wildlife, and the delicious food- all on your doorstep!- Leave your laptop at home! This is the place for romance and relaxation! ... by the way, did I mention the private whirlpool?! The whirlpool is solely for the use of guests staying at Olivia and is completely private... Relaxing in this of an afternoon, glancing out on those incredible views, with a glass of Prosecco in hand, felt as close to perfection as I have ever experienced! I write this with tears in my eyes, longing to return... Palmi thank you so much for an unbelievable experience, we will be back! Grazie Mille! X!
