My mother, Aunt and I went to Italy for 3 weeks in September 2006. For the first 2 weeks of our vacation we stayed at Col di Leccio - Il Lauro.
We cannot say enough good things about this property, every place you looked, from the grounds to the views were spectacular.
It was the first time ever renting something over the internet and we could not have been happier with the outcome.
I would recommend both Terretrusche to anyone as well as the specific property, Col di Leccio - Il Lauro.
