Sadly, we left our gracious hosts at Cancabaia and drove two and half hours south to our next destination, Tuscany. We were staying at Le Torri, an agriturismo in Montespertoli. An agriturismo is basically a farmhouse turned resort. Read more about them here. Our host, Gabriele, checked us in and showed us to our villa.
We were impressed with how nice the place was. We felt the web site didn’t really do it justice. That night there was a welcome dinner for all the guests (about 18-20 of us). Gabriele’s mother prepared a home cooked meal. The food and company were great, but I was pretty tired.
When I finally made it back to our room I logged on and noticed that Gabriele added us as friends on Facebook and bragged about our arrival for us. Soon after he uploaded some pictures from dinner. I felt that was a really nice touch for us young, web-addicted folks.
