Your Authentic Tuscan Experience Off the Beaten Path

Marusca and her family were exceptional in making us feel like long lost distant relatives from the U.S. at her house in Tuscany. The apartment is very spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The full bath is brand new and the bedroom is large and the bed comfortable. The apartment is centrally located in Tuscany and the AutoStrada is about 15 minutes away. Florence is about an hour north, Sienna is about 45 minutes to the South; and other hill towns in Tuscany (Assisi and Cortona) are also about an hour ride away by car... Marusca welcomed us with a bottle of wine (Chianti) from her family vineyard and it was delicious and although there was a full kitchen, easy access to great nearby restaurants made cooking unnecessary. We found a great pizzeria in the town of San Giustino Valdarno (about 5 miles north of the apartment) which made its pizzas in a wood fired brick oven; also, the Strawberry bar in Castiglion Fibocchi had great expressos and pastries for breakfast. also, the town of San Giustino Valdarno has a chain grocery store called "Simply" in case you need soap, shampoo or snacks... We also had a great meal at "Pizzeria Ristorante Jair" restaurant in Castiglion Fibocchi... also, Marusca provided access to high speed internet so you can stay connected (if you want to); but really, the access to the internet was great in being able to get the latest flight status and the latest news in the U.S. also, there is a washer in the apartment so you can do the laundry at your leisure... a great plus.. My wife and I highly recommend this get away for a great experience in Tuscany....
