"Pasamos unos días encantadores en el hospedaje de Francesco, la casa era tal cual no la describieron con el típico aire toscano, con una terraza hermosa la cual utilizamos a menudo, Francesco nos recibió muy bien y siempre estuvo disponible para brindarnos cualquier información y recomendaciones de la zona, por ejemplo a pie se puede ir al mejor restaurante de la zona atendido por un amigo de Francesco con una comida exquisita y servido con gran familiaridad para compartir. Recomiendo 100% este hospedaje y sin duda volveremos algún día."

Absolutely wonderful. The house looks even better than the pictures, top quality.

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Flora!!! Everything was perfect and even better than it looked on the website. Francesco and his team were the perfect hosts, arranging a restaurant, wine tour, and a gourmet meal cooked for us at the villa, all of which were fantastic! The setting is gorgeous, and Montelopio is as quaint as you can imagine - we loved our morning capuccinos at the little cafe/shop! We hope to come back someday! The only minor complaint: the freezer was broken, so no ice... And one tip: bring mosquito repellent - they are ferocious in the evenings!"
