    A once in a lifetime, very special experienceNine of us, four children and five adults, just returned from an Italian adventure of a lifetime. The highlight of our trip (agreed by all) was a wonderful week at Villa Brenda. The beauty of the property and Tuscany can be viewed in photos, but, in reality, exceeds all expectations. Brenda is the perfect, stress free base to relax, enjoy and explore. The opportunities to visit, dine and experience authentic Italy are easy and numerous. Cycling in the area is sublime - the rolling hills, good roads and low traffic made for unbelievable and challenging road bike riding. Our best day was spent on rented e-bikes (with the kids age 12 and 13) touring the surrounding area. Altough the boys (age 11, 12 and all grown up) would say our encounter one evening with the "wild" boars was most memorable. We stayed in the 6-bedroom villa which was, charming, well appointed and extremely comfortable. What made our visit so extraordinary was the effort, personal touches and hospitality of our hosts. From the pre-arrival information, to the information on the spot, the walking maps of the area, to the assistance with reservations and help with the local bike shop, they went above and beyond to ensure our stay was easy, perfect and memorable. We are so grateful to have found this idyllic, and joyful place - and hope to return!
