Ideal Tuscan Villa
"The Villa Fontane provided the ideal accommodations and setting for a reunion trip of 4 couples and as a home base during a week of exploring Tuscany. As an example of the hospitality extended to us, the night of our arrival at the villa we found ourselves in the horrific predicament of not having acquired a supply of Chianti. Antonello heard our desperate cries for help and graciously responded by coming to the rescue with 6 bottles. Olivia was also very accommodating in helping us through several house-keeping items that arose during our stay. The villa is located within a moderate walking distance to a bus stop that transported us to the heart of Florence within 10-15 minutes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are highly recommending the villa to friends and family as the perfect place for spending their Tuscan holiday. As you may have suspected, we are already looking at our calendar for another opportunity to spend time at this very special villa."

"You just couldn't be more in the middle of the action in Florence. It's an easy ten minute walk from the train station and one step out the door and you're surrounded by cafes, restaurants and very upscale shopping. We spent our days roaming the streets of Florence visiting churches and galleries, sunsets along the river and evenings rooting out great food and wine. Osteria Pastella, a couple blocks up the street is not to be missed. Our favorite was All Antico Vinaio, just down the street past the Uffizi where you can have a great dinner at night or the best sandwiches in Florence during the day.
Miki and Franco were wonderful hosts. They are very thorough with the use of the apartment and building. Italy Perfect is very business-like and provides a lot of information. The apartment is well appointed with two balconies on the courtyard side, a washing machine, king size bed, high ceilings, large bathroom and attractive furnishings--even a kitchen in a cabinet. We only used the kitchen for breakfasts and it was perfectly adequate for that. Some simple cooking would be possible.
Negatives? The Wi-Fi was off and on as was the hot water in the shower. Make sure Franco shows you how to adjust the water pressure. We thought getting charged 8-euros for an extra set of towels for a 5-night stay was a little petty. We didn't have arrival times until a few days before and the rental agent got a little intense about our schedule. All minor as far as we're concerned so we would certainly stay at this apartment if we re-visit Florence."

"We had a lovely time in this flat in central Florence, it's very close to all the sights and the most beautiful church in the city. It is a good size and there is good access to restaurants, supermarkets, etc. It is very safe and has good facilities inside.
Lena was very friendly and helpful and provides tips & guide books for your stay in Florence.
Occasionally it could be a bit noisy in the front room at night but other than that everything was great."
