"What you imagine when you think "Tuscany"!"
We stayed in La Verbena, and it was amazing. Podere Sortoiano is about 15 minutes out of Siena, but it is so worth it to stay out of the city! It's incredibly quiet and relaxing, and the stars are unlike anything you've ever seen. Our villa was extremely clean and had everything we needed to feel at home. Francesca was awesome and was extremely helpful, giving us great tips of towns to explore. We will definitely be back!
