was more wonderful than I ever dreamed

Hi John:

 Your email was forwarded to me today … I did attempt to reach you upon my return, however, my correspondence would not transmit (?!?!?!?).

 Anyway, I’m on sabbatical from my professional responsibilities … so this is my personal email.

 Our stay in Cortona was more wonderful than I ever dreamed.  While we captured the vista on many cameras the images in our minds are the most magnificent.  Thank you so much for your assistance in helping to make this happen for us.

 Nicollo was lovely …  the most gracious Italian gentleman … we hold him in very high regard … Ada’s meals (twice) were wonderful.  I so enjoyed dining on the terrace.  The weather was beautiful as well.


 Please stay in touch … I’m very grateful and blessed by this experience.  I will be pleased to assist as a reference anytime you wish.


The house was wonderful

let me just say what a wonderful experience we had with one of your rentals. The house was wonderful the location and the owner where superb. Everything that was promised was delivered and more. If you ever need a reference let me know. Awesome property and experience. Thanks for your help arranging everything for my wife’s 40th birthday gift.  Oh by the way we rented Niccolo near Cortona, what a great town





Everything went absolutely perfect

Dear John,

 I can’t thank you enough for the chance you provided to rent the villa in Cortona.  Everything went absolutely perfect, even the directions.   The only complaint heard was one that you have no control over – the heat.  One suggestion that I would make is  ceiling fans in the bedrooms.  We thoroughly enjoyed it and thanks again for the service.



memorable stay

 Dear John,  We had a wonderful, memorable stay at Nicollo – in fact, I just spoke with our son Mark and he said his wife had just said she wished we were all back in Italy ! 

Our only issue was that when we landed in Paris on our way to Italy, the Italian air traffic controllers were on strike that Saturday!  So we ended up having to stay overnight in the Paris airport hotel and taking a flight out to Milan, not Rome as planned, early Sunday am – so we arrived to meet Hugo mid Sunday afternoon.  After that all was really just wonderful – the villa met our needs really well and it was so comfortable!

We traveled about some in the beautiful countryside, but did relax and stay around Cortona some, also – it just was perfect !  We had Hugo’s cook, Rita, prepare our last evening’s meal Friday and it was beautiful weather to eat outside, food so delicious – it was the memorable occasion that we all were anticipating!  We took many pictures that evening of the 5 of us, some of Mark and Shelly, some of just Cheryl, some of Henry and I – those will be used as our Christmas card picture this year !

Many thanks for recommending this specific villa – I really appreciated the comfortable bed!

We, too, had beautiful mostly sunny days – and are giving glowing reports to everyone about Tuscany and the villa !  Hopefully we can send others to your website !

many thanks for answering all our questions, the restaurant tips, what to do notes, etc!
