This return trip possibly inspired by my tossing coins into the Trevi Fountain just last year and as legend goes; it promises visitors who throw money into the fountain that they will one day return to throw more money into the fountain. Not sure this trip really counts [have not punched that ticket yet], but it will be close, as I will be in Rome only briefly and unfortunately no where near the famed fountain. That aside, I'm sad that my trip this year, will not include a visit with the wonderful folks at Villa Le Vigne. But I wanted to high-light them as a great place to set up your base of operations, for your very own visit to the Tuscan country side. There are so many great places to visit within easy striking distance, Florence, Montalcino to name a few for day-trips.
It appears to be very similar to a place I stayed while visiting Tuscany in 2008, Mrs. Cuvee and I stayed on a vineyard in Castellina in Chianti. But Villa Le Vigne, appears to be a major step-up from the rustic farm-house I stayed at last time. A modern style villa with various options from luxury to laid-back, sitting upon a small boutique family run winery, ideally located in the midst of the Strada del Vino [wine route]. Prices vary for a stay, but I look for an off-season date, a highly recommended way to go and lands firmly my reasonable zone. Frankly the weather is more appealing in the spring, the August and September high-season months can be a bit brutish with the temps and humidity. For more information and details about pricing, reservations and other needed information, please take a look at their website. I have also added a quick video below, which will help you get a sense or the essence of who they are and what you may experience with a stay of your own. Until next time, folks I wish you all safe travels; as always remember to sip long and prosper cheers!
