What a wonderful experience for my wife, her sister, and me! Grazie mille, Cretaiole for making our stay so memorable! Learned many new things about Italy, Tuscany, and Val d'Orcia! Be sure to check out the Cretaiole garden and the wine, cheese, eggs, sauce, meats, . . . from Luciano! Don't miss the hike down the back road from Cretaiole to visit the country church so often photographed and painted of "Tuscany" -- or, as Isa pointed out, of the unique landscape of Val d'Orcia! Our visit to the American Military Cemetary, just south of Florence, where many of my father's comrades-in-arms are buried, was a moving, special time for me. The side trips to Montepulciano and Montalcino, then north to Chianti Classico area, were a 'dream come true' to this lover of Sangiovese-based wines -- Brunello, Vino Nobile, Chianti Classico, Rosso, Super Tuscans! The visit to the Hermitage/Estruscan site, on property owned by the family, was an unexpected treat! And the visit to the organic farm to visit their operation and taste their successes was wonderful! But, in the final analysis, the hospitality, helpfulness, responsiveness, and willingness to go the extra mile from Isa, Carlo, and Luciana, and the rest of the family, made our stay one we will always cherish! Grazie mille!
