    "La bella casa in compagna"

    06/28/2019

    Graziella and Leonardo were gracious hosts, providing a memorable few days in the hills of Maremma, a short drive from Roccastrada. After a day of driving in the area, I returned every afternoon for a relaxing swim in their pool. Having a meal and watching sunset through the window of our apartment were special treats. Peaceful, serene, beautiful mountains and olive groves helped set the mood.
    Grazie Graziella & Leonardo, I have a nice photo of the three of us the day I left.
    Giacomo.

    "Nature and Solitude"

    03/21/2019

    My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful stay at Poggio Macinaio. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the solitude of the countryside. Graziella and her husband were wonderful and helpful hosts. The house is set amongst olive groves and the apartment is quite large for 2 people. The kitchen includes everything needed to cook a full meal and the fireplace is a nice addition for the chilly nights of March. There are multiple trails for hiking or mountain biking and the house is well situated to visit Montepulciano (1.5 hrs), Montalcino (45 min), Siena (35 min) as well as many other beautiful locations within easy driving distance. If you're wanting to get away from the overwhelming crowds of the big cities and enjoy the Tuscan countryside - this is the place to be.

    "A dream spot"

    01/30/2019

    In July Paul and I went to Italy to the Agriturismo of Graziella. What a wonderful place. The beautiful apartments, with the typical Italian decor are situated between the lush hills of Tuscany. In the garden a beautiful large tree with an idyllic seat underneath. Paul and I were immediately sold. Graziella is a treasure and has given us great tips for the area and we were allowed to borrow her bikes. Lovely place also for mountain biking. We are so excited that we will soon go again. Thank you Graziella for your hospitality and the beautiful place where we were allowed to stay.
