What our guests have said about their stay..

"Sandro you must be the happiest and most fulfilled man in Italy..your talents include making so many people happy. You made US happy (and a bit heavier!) with the marvelous creations from the Forno. We shall miss your walnut bread (but my doctor will be happy that you are in Italy and I'm in America!) You thrilled us with your magnificent talent for singing. You are a Bel Canto Tenor Supremo! The dinner and concert was the ultimate highlight of our six weeks in Italy. You made us feel welcome and you gave us your friendship...How can we say "Thank You"? Grazie mille,mille.

Sitting here on the wonderful terrace … watching the sunset over the Tuscan hills, a glass of Chianti and a bowl of Sandro's cantucci by my side - who could ask for more?

Over the years we have stayed in villas all over Europe. Casa del Forno is, without doubt, the most comfortable, elegant and tasteful we have ever stayed in. Sandro's hospitality only added to our pleasure - and a special highlight was to hear him sing … a memorable evening. Many Thanks.

Thank you Sandro for providing us with a wonderful holiday in your exquisite villa and for your friendliness that we have not experienced elsewhere. You have obviously gone to a great deal of trouble in the design and furnishing of Casa del Forno. The result is everything that anyone could desire.

We highly recommend the Casa as a Winter holiday location - a beautiful home and a comfortable retreat on the crisp cold days. Sandro's welcoming gifts and lovely Christmas decorations got us in the mood for the festive season.

Sandro - your singing is as nourishing to the soul as your baking is to the body.

Casa del Forno is my favourite Tuscan retreat and still as beautiful and relaxing in the height of Winter as in the Summer! Highly memorable and so well positioned for Gucci and Prada too!!

This wonderful villa has been a delightful retreat at the end of the day - and what a wonderful view at daybreak … the mist rising up the valley as you breathe in the freshest air. This is January - it must be even more breathtaking in Summertime…

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for making us feel welcome and at home. Italy is very beautiful but you truly brought out the beauty of the Tuscan people and its countryside by your hospitality and kindness. You extend a warmth to everyone! Your concert was bravissimo and the highlight of the trip. How lucky we were to have found this villa...Thank you again for a memorable vacation..we hope we can return"
