    "Casa Pugnanella is lovely, comfortable, with large spacious rooms that are beautifully decorated. If features a kitchen that is every cook's delight. It has a large swimming pool and fabulous views of the countryside. The villa is also near a train station which made a trip to Florence very easy. All in all, it is relaxing place to collect wonderful memories. Our visit could not have been more perfect. We will return. Thanks for your hospitality." Dan and Faith Boudreau, USA

    "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."
    James W. Brock, USA.
