Villa La Valiana was a wonderful
experience for our
families vacation this year. The
house and grounds
are stunning, pool was wonderful
in the middle of a
vineyard, and the home very
comfortable for 6.
Cecilia and her family were
wonderful hosts and
made us feel very welcomed and
my daughter said it is hard to
Every year our return vacation visit
to Villa Valiana always gets better!
Hard to believe but totally true!
Not just because its so
beautiful under the Tuscan sun in
the middle of the vineyards. Not
just because its so centrally
located to explore historic towns
and Italy's nearby largest lake in
bordering Umbria. But because each
year we always discover something
new and unique- plus the tranquil
calming peace and quiet of serenity.
Its difficult to describe peace
when we live in such a noisy hectic
world but to actually hear silence
amidst a gentle breeze is a miracle
Our stay in Valiana recharges ,
refreshes, restores and heals. Only
now after five consecutive annual
visits do we fully understand ,
enjoy and look forward to "dolce far
niente"- the art of doing nothing.
Its all extraordinary and
unforgettable. It is a perfect
paradise on earth.
We are always sad to leave but
happy to know we will return next
year to spend more time in this
little quiet heaven .
Champagne wishes do come true!
Dearest Cecilia and Family,
