The Villa and its views were spectacular


Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I wanted to send a thoughtful response and since I’ve been back its been crazy. It was the first time I’ve been away from work for two weeks in 19 years and I paid the price. it was more than worth it.

First off thank you…the trip, the Villa, Massimo and Il Girasole , Cortona, your recommendations were  all wonderful and exceeded my hopes not just my expectations.The Villa and its views were spectacular. The pictures on your web site do not do the views from the Villa and the grounds justice. The owner was a thoughtful and charming host and the meals she prepared while dining outside with the aforementioned views are a memory that I and my family will cherish forever.

Your information packet was very helpful. My children enjoyed your suggested restaurants. I tried early one evening to go but it had not yet opened up as we were early. Mary and I were being good grandparents watching our 4 month granddaughter for my daughter and son-in-law so they could enjoy a late night dinner with her siblings. Marco and Paulo were very helpful with their wine selections, at Molesini (as well I presume the food I ordered). They were so good ,four cases of wine from their store arrived at my home yesterday.

The only regret was I did have was not seeing St.Francis’s hermitage and the lake. I am planning to correct that oversight by returning in 2015…Paris can wait. I presume to do so I should contact you sometime in the first half of 2014 correct?

On a practical note…you were wonderful and very helpful…where can I go to sing your praises. I would be delighted to provide a testimonial for Italian town and country, just point me in the right direction.

Also if you would like to use some of the photos I have of the views from the Villa just let me know.

Finally I have a Friend who is hoping to go next year if he can make the time, if so I’ll direct him your way.

Again thank you and I look forward to booking with you again.

Best Regards,
