Just how beautiful, serene, and romantic this place is. As soon as we arrived, and checked out our room (La Tinaia), my wife and I both remarked that no matter what words we say, or how many pictures we show, we will never be able to convey the feeling of looking out over the vineyards, olive groves and forests of the Chianti area, the town of San Donato off in the distance, the peace and solitude. Another reviewer has already described RdS as Heaven on Earth. Indeed.
Opening the bedroom window in the morning (see picture) actually took my breath away.
The restaurant is excellent. Great four course meals (fixed menu). Each night was a different and new surprise. At 26 E a plate, plus another 20 - 30 for wine (some of it grown "in that vineyard, right over there" you are dining al fresco, overlooking sunbathed vineyards as the sun sets. Beat that!
Marco, Lorella, Roberto and various other family members (and 2 cats) were all gracious hosts. Never intrusive, but by the end of the week, you almost feel like family. No wonder several of the other couples there were repeat visitors ( one couple on their sixth visit!).
As well during the week, you get to meet interesting people from all over the world, partake in a wine tasting event, and best of all, relax and unwind under the Tuscan sun.
We will be back,
