I finally made it to Tuscany! I have been wanting this trip for over 5 years. A villa in Tuscany with friends. Il Rifugio could not have been any more perfect of a setting, an experience or an adventure. The villa is beautifully appointed and will not disappoint. Every last detail has been thought out and provided. The kitchen had everything (and more!) than we needed. And we cooked and prepared food for 10. The living areas were graced with spectacular views out of every window. The pool was so refreshing to cool down the summer days. The terrace was perfect for our evening meals and long chats over wine. I wanted an amazing Tuscan experience, and i got one. Thank you Chuck and Shirley for the food, the cooking class and for being most gracious hosts.
