Comments from friends in Canada

Dear Jones our time at the villa was amazing. Your villa exceeded our expectations. The villa and the grounds were so clean and well kept and the facilities made our stay so relaxing. It was perfect for a family vacation -- the children enjoyed the pool and grounds and the location in Manciano made for wonderful day trips. The best part of the villa, however, was the hospitable welcome we received from you. You went out of your way to make us feel at home and you were so generous. We truly felt like welcome guests in an Italian home. My husband and I both felt that the best part of our European trip was our stay at your villa in Tuscany Maremma and we would not hesitate to recommend it to all of our friends. We look forward to visiting you again in the near future. Thanks again for all you did. We have such warm memories of Manciano. Hope to see you again soon.
