"An excellent slice of Tuscan beauty"
The week spent at Casa del Fico was most delightful. A perfect location atop a hill with 360 degree views of Tuscany reminiscent of any da Vinci painting. Ideally located to either explore the local region or just relax in idyllic surroundings with a glass of chianti Classico. Definitely to be recommended to those who wish to get away from it all and experience Italy's finest region.
