Not sure how La Petraia remains a secret. Set in the hills and surrounded by cypress trees, this property offers all possible Tuscan delights. Everything, from honey to wine, that Chef Susan Grant prepares, from the honey to the wine, is produced on the grounds of this breathtaking farm. Drive out from Florence for a day trip and lunch, or stay longer. The food is tasty and creative and the setting is absolutely to die for. Note: not easy to find. Follow directions carefully.
