I would give Alessandro and Daniela 20 stars if I could. My husband and I spent the most memorable 4 hours of our entire 2 week trip with them in early September. Their home, the setting, their easy and friendly manner adds to the fun and relaxation of what is already (for me) a dream way to spend an afternoon. If you like magnificent vistas, or cooking or eating, this is an absolute must. If you don't like any of those things - why are you visiting Italy?!?
