Interaction with guests
My name is Alberto, I am 73 years old and I manage The Raw Stone with my wife Donatella from 16 years. I manage to be both extremely helpful and caring of my guests and property, without ever being invasive and nosey. I knows the region well, justifiably love my home and the Tuscan countryside, and tirelessly keep the spacious and beautiful grounds in trim.
