Our stay at il Forte was fantastic! My family spent a week at the villa in November and we could not have been happier about choosing it. The building was beautiful and felt like we had modern luxuries while stepping back in time to a historical fortress. All of the arrangements with InTuscany were so easy from booking through checking out. They communicated with us in every step of our planning, and made arrangements to meet all of our requests. We had a cooking class in the villa and a private dinner during our stay. The dinner prepared by Luda was one of our favorite meals of the entire trip! Not only was the food outstanding, but she was incredible to watch prepare and serve a dinner for 11 people completely on her own! If we are ever in Tuscany with a large group again, we would love to return here for another stay. One note for those traveling from the US: the washer and dryer were wonderful to have, but they are much smaller and take more time than we are accustomed to at home. Just a thought to plan accordingly when staying with a large group!
