What has been written about us - former customers' comments and thank-you letters

Hello Renata,
I must say that I gave your phone and mail to several people. Tuscany is somehow popular. However I must say that the first week in the inland was the best. Accommodation was no problem but the atmosphere and surroundings were really cool. I also assume that it wasn´t the last time. Maybe I should try it out of season next time and focus just on sightseeing, wine and food really. In a nutshell it was simply wonderful!
lots of regards

Hello Ms. Kostelníková,
I want to thank you for all of us. Everything has been arranged and worked out perfectly, accommodation within the sight of the Vatican City had no mistake. We all enjoyed it and came from 24° C into Prague, where was raining with hailstones and was 4° C. Well, we took off sandals and dived into the work. Feel free to publish it and you can even add that the airport operates CTP ... I think it was translated as a consortium of passenger transport; we had been transported to the booked appartment in 45 minutes with large Mercedeses for 8 people. ... ATTENTION ... cheaper than the train and subway ... negotiated price. We even ordered them the day before the return journey to the airport. A car had been there on time and above all everybody around was smilling ... not like in the Czech Republic ... everyone angry that they must work and look after the stupid tourists.

Dear Renata,
Thank you for the mediation of our beautiful holiday. We are excited when we´re viewing photos as it was so nice over there. We enjoyed it so much thanks to your perfect presentation. We definitely will use your contacts and knowledge of the terrain and people next time again. Family Diggi, in the mansion Ponny, is very nice and we will stay with them again, we are determined to go back. Have a very nice time and we look forward to our next vacation.
with regards

Hello Renata,
It has been 2 months since we´ve opened a wine shop in Ostrava focused purely on Tuscany and its wine and gastronomic products. Wine merchant www.natalegini.it is an owner and I only operate one of its wine shops. I obtained some information and contact of you from our best guests. Many of them have been praising you extremely much and I can´t stop wondering. Wasn´t it for you, they would never discover Tuscany and they wouldn´t come to me to reminiscent :-) Anyway, the main reason why I am writing to you is that I would like to know whether there was any way to support the region itself and to show people that we are here also. It sounds more complicated than it actually is but I am basically offering products of this wine company but not for sale but for presentation, which can only be successful next to good people like yourself and which can bring us closer to your prime.
with regards

Hello,
I would like to thank you with the little delay for the beautiful moments in Tuscany (both accommodation and tasting in Montalcino was superb, even bistecca fiorentina was great, just as well that we have brought so many postcardscards of size 0.7 litre ...).
Best regards


Jaromír Janoš, Zlín
Hello Renata,
I want to express my great satisfaction with the accommodation and service throughout our stay. The owner of the property was very friendly and willing, I would like to express our greetings and praise to her through you. Otherwise thank you as well and in the future if I want to go back on holiday in Italy, I will contact you with confidence:-)
Have a nice day

Dear Mrs. Kostelníková,

Have a good time


Jana Sobotková, Prague
Good evening Miss Kostelníková,
unfortunately I don´t want you to arrange any accommodation in Tuscany for us currently (perhaps in the autumn), I just want to say hello from Prague. I often think of you and your kind and helpful attitude.
Yours sincerely


Libuše Skorkovská a Pavel Růžička, Prague
Mrs. Kostelníková,
Since we haven´t met, I would like to thank you by this email for the mediation of our stay in San Gimignano in the apartment Mandorli. Everything was OK, we liked it very much! I hope to return to Tuscany again.

Hello Ms. Kostelníková,
Last year we spent a very nice long weekend in Rome arranged by you. As the new year has started, we began to think about spring. We are tempted to spend a few days in Tuscany. Not just only by your description, but also from read books and viewed films, we would like to try it for real.
