Testimonials: Top
Our stay at Sant Andrea was everything we had hoped for and then more. My husband, who is an architect (and very opinionated) was very impressed with all the work you put into the villa. It is so apparent a labor of love on your part... such a lovely home to behold.

Fernanda ( the cook) was wonderful. Her meals were lovely and delicious. I only wish that we had eaten in more. Fernanda also was a great help with our laundry, which we had not expected. That was so nice of her. She and her husband were both helpful in so many ways.

I have passed your email and web site on to several others. I would recommend Sant Andrea to anyone!!!! I'd like to come back sometime with my family from South Carolina. Thank you again for opening up this fantastic home for "outsiders" to enjoy.

Most sincerely, C. Swaback

We have just returned from our two week exploration of Italy and I must say the week at Sant Andrea was indeed the highlight. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The home was inviting and comfortable and the grounds exquisite. The location was also superb for exploring the Tuscan hilltowns and taking a day trip to Florence. It was wonderful having such a plentiful garden at our fingertips. Myself and another individual on the trip love to cook and not only did we find the herbs and vegetables magnificent but your kitchen was well stocked and set up for real cooking. Also, Fernanda, Ivo, and Cornelia ( your staff) are extraordinary individuals--boy, are you fortunate to have them working with you. We didn't understand a word of what Fernanda had to say but her beautiful smile, gifts of vegetables, and pantomime spoke volumes; she is a jewel. Also, the restoration pictures were enjoyed greatly. The old Roman well is quite a piece of history. It was most amazing to see the wild white day lilies growing in the wild. They are identical to the lilies painted in so many of the 12-15 C paintings by the Masters found in the Uffizi. I could just imagine your hillside lilies coming up in the same spot for centuries. I'm amazed at your bold adventure in undertaking the Sant Andrea project and pleased with your success and sharing your home with others. Thanks so very much for sharing a piece of heaven on earth with all of us! We all hope to return. I definitely will recommend you home to others.
