Not sure how La Petraia remains a secret. Nestled 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 is grown, raised and prepared on the grounds of this breathtaking farm. Drive out from Florence for a day trip and lunch, or stay longer. Food is tasty and creative—Grant calls her cuisine "field to fork." Setting is absolutely to die for. Note: not easy to find. Follow directions carefully.
