From Susan Cashman - Wedding in August 2002. Villa Monte 3

'We had the best time , the service in Siena was amazing - very emotional - everyone was crying! Then we went to one of the bars across the square for some bubbly and stayed there for a couple of hours. When we walked across the square again to get our car, everyone started clapping and taking pictures - it was like being a celeb....really funny.

We arrived back at the Villa at 2pm, they had set up umbrellas on the outside table and had champagne and nibbles there....which was lovely.

The dining room was totally transformed....the tables looked so beautiful. , Each place setting was so beautiful.. The food was amazing, when I got the menu I thought it was 5 courses and in each section there was an option....but no - it was the whole menu - roughly about 9 courses altogether.....everyone was amazed at the quality of the food and of course all of the estate wine is lovely - especially the white. Then the wedding cake - it was amazing....with a little couple on the top - gorgeous chocolate cake - it was really good. Just to be different I asked everyone to write a speech - to say a couple of words or whatever - so we had a couple in between every couple of courses - and again very emotional. Some people wrote poems and Mum wrote a song for me....it was great.

Just after cutting the cake - we opened Sergios and Anna's present to us - 2 amazing champagne flutes - such a thoughtful gift - I am really scared that I'll break them though.

The service from the waiting staff was very good too. I will write a little piece on La Selva and our wonderful stay there over the weekend, it just kept getting better every day we were there - truly unforgetable.

It could not of happened without you Liz and for that I am so grateful.

I am slightly lost now I am back here - it's horrible grey old London - very busy and everyone is just too cool - if you know what I mean. It's very strange being back in work too....oh well I'm sure I'll be in Tuscany soon again!!

Our holiday at the estate would be like a dream come true except that the reality was better than the dream. We planned a birthday celebratory week with family and close friends. Our villa was large enough for our party of 20 to have a little solitude when necessary and yet feel very together. It was the first time I've ever stayed at a villa in Italy and so I assume that many of the features like the stonewalls and floors and wood beams may be typical but there was nothing typical about the gorgeous textile used in the bedrooms. I remember looking at the photos of the villa before the trip and thinking if it is even half as beautiful as it looked that would be wonderful. It was more beautiful.

Our group settled into villa living very quickly. My husband and I had scheduled cooking classes for us as a birthday gift and others in our party signed up also. Lisa & Maurizio are very good teachers and excellent cooks. They did all the cooking for our birthday party the day of our last class and everything was delicious. They made a lasagne with b?chamel sauce that is my particular favourite. Some in our group were early risers and would go off and shop nearby in Ambra for breakfast for the house. Others were sightseers and would go off to Sienna or San Gimignano. We checked out a few local restaurants including the one on the estate (very good) the first few days. After that since we had a few good cooks in the company, dinners started occurring at the villa every night, which suited me. I felt before arriving that I wanted to spend as much time as possible in the villa and my husband concurred. As the villa turned out to be better than we could have expected we did spend most of our time there. We had informed everyone beforehand that they all had the freedom to go off and do as they wished and they did but the villa and the pool were a big attraction. For the most part we all spent a good portion of the week splashing about the pool, including stretching a piece of fabric across the pool and playing games of water volley ball, gathering in the kitchen and eating and drinking on the terrace dinning area. We would start eating in the light and during dinner watch the sunset from our fabulous vantage point, and end up still drinking and smoking and talking till whenever. Speaking of drinking we drank the estate's excellent wine all week. My personal favourite was the Anne Di Fiori. We also drank lots of Evento. There is never a wine crisis at the Villa!

The villa is meticulously kept and very comfortable. We had a problem with the television one afternoon and the next morning a new television was installed before the CNN addicts could go through withdrawal. The pool was cleaned every day. We had a cleaner come in every day and she was very good and thorough.

The estate is very beautiful from the sunflowers nodding in the breeze on the way in to the sight of deer jumping through the vineyards in the early morning. It was very hot in Italy the week we were there but we were very comfortable in our villa and by the pool. Sitting by the pool and seeing the mountains in the distance was incredible.

I really can't say enough nice things about the villa. I also can't say enough nice things about Sarah Morris. She was extremely helpful in planning our holiday. She had many helpful suggestions and was extremely responsive to all our questions and requests.

Thank you very much Sarah!

it's me again! Just in case you felt a little lost without all my emails bombarding you...!

I'm back in Dublin but my mind is still in Italy! I had such a fabulous wedding day. It was great to finally meet you - thanks for coming down to be part of the day at Villa Monte 3 . We were watching some of the video at the weekend that Dermot's brother-in-law took, it was such a marvellous, idyllic setting. You chose well with the church too! Please thank once again the hairdresser, the musicians, the florist and the caterers on our behalf - they were all excellent. And of course, the photographer. He was very good, and a lot of fun!

Please could you let us know what we are to do now as regards getting the photos.

Thanks a million

Helen

Here following are some impressions regarding our recent Italian trip and especially the week we stayed at Villa Monte 3

The weather was wonderful!! June is a very good time for Americans who are travelling with young children since European children are still in school. We had elected to take advantage of your offer to arrange for cooks to come in and prepare dinner for us on only the one occasion. Had we known how good that dinner would be and how modest its cost was compared to what we were spending in restaurants we would have opted to have them in every other day during our stay (there was enough leftover food for a second dinner hence no need to have them in every day). The bedrooms were both elegant and functional; all are en-suite, the kitchen contained everything we needed; the living area was spacious and well furnished.

The Chianti grapes; grown, fermented and bottled on the estate are of uniformly excellent quality and were available for 6 euros per bottle (the best bargain we found in inflationary Italy!!). No security deposit was ever requested of us for the villa and when I offered to pay for two wine glasses that were broken, it was refused.

The biggest mistake we made was following a four day stay in Rome we elected to rent cars at the stazione Roma Termine and drive to the villa. Taking the fast train to Arezzo and renting cars from there would have been far less stressful but we managed..

Bottom line is that we had a wonderful visit. Thankyou, Sarah for all your help!

Fondly. Edwin
