    Karen (Ontario, Canada) stayed at Casa Storica during Summer 2015

    “Laura, Brandy – you are both amazing!

    We have now returned… back into reality indeed but have made some incredible memories these past 3 weeks. (thanks to you!) Casa Storica was more than what we had hoped and expected. So much more!

    The ‘welcome pack’ of bread, oil, fruit etc followed by a freshly baked apple dish a few days after; The friendly greetings throughout the week; The wine readily available; The incredible food and room we celebrated the birthday dinner in; The extra available activities both on the grounds and out.

    We visited Pisa and Lucca in a day for our Girls day which was awesome. The surrounding castles were knocked off the list too. Your suggestions made the planning of this trip just that much easier and better – I owe many thanks to you!

    I’m happy to share our experience with the rest of the world, but part of me doesn’t want to share this particular piece of paradise!! :) Although we’re not a family to return to the same place due to other options out there – this is not the case with our newly found and loved Villa!

    All of your help and advice over the past months of planning was incredible!

    THANK YOU AGAIN”


    Susan (Portola Valley, California) stayed at Casa Storica during Summer 2013

    “We had a great experience with Tuscan Travel Group! Brandy and Laura were so enthusiastic and helpful and found us the most wonderful, charming, peaceful and historic villa. As we came up the long cypress lined driveway to these beautiful grounds, gardens and buildings I couldn’t believe my eyes. We stayed in a comfortable 2 bedroom apartment in one of the old farmhouses right next to the larger villa. I never thought I could afford to stay at a villa and assumed we would need a whole week, which we didn’t have time for. But they knew of this treasure I never would have found on my own. It was one of the more affordable places we stayed in Italy.

    Our villa was close to so many wonderful places to visit: right next to the castle-like town of Monteriggioni, close to Siena, San Gimignano, and less than an hour from Florence. There are wonderful wineries to visit along with charming Tuscan hill towns and the absolute best food of our trip was in this area. The trick was to make plenty of time during our 4 days there to relax and lounge by the beautiful infinity pool with gorgeous views of the hills and vineyards. It was hard to leave.

    Before making the decision, (which I will never regret!), to book the villa with them, Brandy and Laura were so patient with answering my questions and offering information about restaurants, places to see, and even suggestions for Rome and Florence. They made the whole process easy and inspired much excitement because of their obvious love of the area.

    I highly recommend Tuscan Travel Group!!!”
