Enjoyed Podere Castellare. Beautiful place, good food and wonderful views. The managers, Graziano and Giada, speak English, so there was no communication problem. The breakfasts were delicious, try the homemade yogurt! Pizzas cooked in wood burning oven for supper best I have had. Organic products from their farm were used in their food preparation. Be sure and visit the gardens.... More
