"Questa Nostra Stagione"

Dear friends,
We spend happy time in this place!
It was in October'2013. It was not the usual journey for us. We chose Villa La Pianella to relax, to get acquainted with Tuscany, to celebrate the wedding of my brother. And we were absolutely right in our choice.
Sorry for my English, but I'll try to describe my memories about Villa La Pianella - the place I love:
Beautiful, hospitable, distinctive, comfortable, romantic, heartwarming, pleasantly, stylish, great, fantastic, charming etc.
I really recommend Villa La Pianella, if you want to feel Tuscany!
