Casa Sambuco is the perfect place to stay for a trip to Tuscany for those who want serenity and convenience. The accomodations are wonderful and comfortable. Florence is an easy drive from the property, but the real reason to stay here is to explore Tuscany and especially the Chianti region of Tuscany. I would absolutely stay here again.
