"Our time at Casa Pugnanella was incredible. We were able to take day trips to Florence, Sienna and return every evening to shop at the local market and prepare a true Italian dinner in the fully equipped kitchen. The pool was enjoyed by our teenager while we could be entertained with the satellite TV. The seclusion creates a feeling of opulence of an aristocrat Italian."
