When one books from a distance, sometimes there is a surprise on the negative side. In the case of Le Pratola the surprise was a wonderful, WOW!
Your home is wonderful inside out. During the first week the weather was on the cool side, so when we were home we enjoyed the many different sitting areas throughout. Susie and I could enjoy each other’s company or find our own, private space. You filled the home with every comfort and convenience.
But, we have to admit, it is really the outside that really won our hearts. The sitting areas are varied and all comfortable. Some are semi private while others offer fabulous views of the beauty of Tuscany. I personally liked sitting on the deck by the pool any time of day. As I understand, we were the first to use the heated pool. Great idea. Without this new comfort, Susie and I would have had to muster up some extra courage to get in. The nights have been very cool.
Most of all you and everyone else who touched our adventure were over the top good. Fiona is one of the most efficient and responsive persons with whom I have ever worked. Elena, Laura, Monica, Barbara, our cooking class chef, were wonderful, caring, and thoughtful. Everything came off as planned. Thanks for the surprise birthday cake for Susie, a true expression of your caring for your guests.
The home and the grounds were always immaculate.
We did not see Francesca other than the first day, but she was gracious upon our arrival.
Then finally, there is you. It was obvious from your responses to our requests, such as modifying the wine tasting tour, cancelling the bikes, to having Francesca personally show us to the home, to your super fast responses to our questions, that you were going to do everything to make our stay special indeed. And, of course, you surprised Susie, and I, with a delicious birthday cake…..worth repeating.
We loved every moment!
