A Breath Taking View with a marvelous hostess

We just returned from a two week stay in this beautiful location. We had 3 couples traveling together and we called Casa Antoinetta home base for several day trips. We travelled from the casa to Pisa, Venice, Verona, Bologna, Povulla, Vignola, Florence and several other locations within a two hour span from the home. Every night we returned home to this lovely home with modern amenities and very comfortable beds! Our hostess, Lysbeth made us dinner on our first night and we were treated to local favorites that were both delicious and gave us an insight into what we could look forward to in the area! Lysbeth was wonderful! She made reservations for us one Sunday at La Staffa a marvelous restaurant near the house with some of the best Italian pasta we had ever eaten. She also introduced us to a wonderful vineyard and restaurant nearby for a lovely meal. We were able to tour the vineyard and have a wine tasting with Lysbeth as our personal guide and interpreter! That is service way above any owner operated home we've visited. She was there from the moment we arrived giving us advise on local stores to shop at and directing us to 2 different outdoor markets where everything from foods to antiques were sold. This was an experience we will never forget.
And to top it all the mountain views from the terrace surrounding this lovely home were so beautiful we couldn't stay inside!
Visiting this home was more than worth trip and we definitely recommend it to either someone looking for a wonderful relaxing place to stay and just kick back for week or more OR to use as a base to get a taste of Italy!
