This is the apartment that we stayed in
Podere Casanova, was the best! They have five different apartments and it's ran by two sisters. Lisa and Lara. Lisa thought the Ginestra apartment (video tour here) would be a perfect fit for us and she couldn't have been more right! Not only was it extremely reasonable, but they were more than accommodating to our little ones. They put in a bunk bed so Bubba and Pooks shared that, peanut had a single bed next to them, B and I shared a queen and Sissy had an oversized 'baby cot'. They had no problem with us bringing Rascal and our apartment was attached to the laundry room so we didn't have to overpack or schlep dirty clothes halfway across the property.
They even have a small playground for the kids. This is the view I got to admire while they played:
The first night there, was the night before Easter so of course, the Easter Bunny still came and brought the kids' baskets. They were thrilled that the Easter bunny found them and that he brought American and Italian candy. (really it was German but to small children they just knew it wasn't American).
|Sissy went straight for the M&M's|
The views from their apartment were amazing!And the egg hunt...
On Easter we hung around Podere Casanova. A nearby restaurant was open so we had a fine Easter dinner of tortellini a ragu, spagetti a pomodoro, pizza and risotto with lots (and lots) of vino. We finalized our plans for Monday...we were going to Florence!
