We have nothing but praise! Apartment was clean, owners Chiara, Ian and granny are just lovely people. They were very welcoming. Chiara offered and bought provisions for the fridge to allow us to have some settle in time. We had access to and bought their wine, olive oil and her very own limoncello; delicious! The views from the front door looked down through the fields onto Vinci itself. It's only a 3 minute drive -you can walk down through the vineyard into Vinci, but it hadn't been 'trodden down' yet and I'm a bit of a townie. The restaurants they suggested were terrific too. We loved the one run by a married couple, no other staff, just them. Food really tasty.
It's the 500 year anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci (a remarkable man!!) and the town had visitors coming to see the 4 terrific museums explaining the different aspects of his work and life; it still didn't feel crowded. The local Vinci people don't tend to have english, and no reason why they should; they live in the middle of the beautiful Italian countryside. Wonderful people! Chiara, Ian, and their lovely daughter all have perfect english. We will be back! Chiara, get more limoncello made please.More
