La Mia Toscana

»Posted

Staying in Tuscany has been for us the most amasing experience ever. The package that we booked through the website www.lamiatoscana.info was nicer than we even thought. From our room’s window we could admire the typical Tuscan landscape, the one you have in your mind when thinking about Tuscany or watching a film settled in Tuscany. The house was very easy to find and it was convinient for us becouse it is located in the country side, but close to Pisa airport, Florence, Chianti area, and the seaside. And the people who welcomed us were so friendly to us, we really had the chance to feel a family atmosphere around us. During our stay the staff of La Mia Toscana organized a special set of activties for us; we were interested in having...

agriturism in Tuscany Piedicosta

Piè di Costa was the best part of our June, 2006 Tuscany visit. It provided us with almost everything you might want from a seven day stay in Tuscany. The house has five self-catering apartments it is set on a hill from where you can enjoy a real Tuscan landscape. The location is very peaceful and quite the farmhouse is set among olive trees and vineyards. The building is lovely and surrounded by a lash and well kept garden.

The Brazilian singer, famous in Europe mostly after having participated to movies where he sang “Cuccurrucuccu Paloma” in Spanish, will surely receive great plause by the Italian public because of his eclectic and ever-changing music style. The concert tickets are...
