"We stayed here on Via Romana for two weeks with another couple recently. The apartment was great, very well fitted out and comfortable and in an ideal location. You can visit all the sights easily on foot and the train/bus station are also within a 20 minute walk. The neighbourhood is full of shops and restaurants; everything you might need is right there. You can easily cook at home as the kitchen is very well equipped. The apartment has good wifi reception although there is an additional weekly charge for Internet use.
George, the owner, is very helpful if you need anything and there are guide books and a good list of suggestions and tips in the apartment. Anyone with difficulty walking or climbing stairs needs to be aware that you will be on the third floor and there is no elevator. We were very grateful to George for helping with our bags both upon our arrival and departure! All in all a fine place to stay and we would highly recommend staying here when you visit Florence."

"This summer our family—two parents and four kids, aged between 14 and 21, plus my father—embarked on what we hoped would prove to be perfect Tuscan holiday. L’Olmo did not disappoint.
The first evening, after a winding trip up the hillside, we were rewarded with a tree-lined colonnade entry onto the property that took our breath away. As you approach the property you get a sense of the quiet majesty and age of the place. We were warmly greeted by owners Martyn and Margaret. They were ever present but never intrusive for the remainder of our stay, extremely helpful with advice about day trips and at the ready to make reservations or help with anything else that might have come up.
The farmhouse itself is spectacular. Dating back centuries, it has been tastefully outfitted with many modern conveniences. The rooms are large and bright and the beds all have comfy, crisp linens. We love to cook and had such a good time perusing the local markets, snipping the property’s abundant herbs, and cooking in the spacious modern kitchen. The kids enjoyed the wi-fi “booster” set up in the kitchen so it ended up being a busy place.
Of course, we spent a lot of time outdoors exploring the property, dining al fresco, reading by the pool, swimming in the pool, playing ping pong, and just soaking in the unbelievable lavender-scented sweeping vista of the Tuscan hills.
We went on to visit other places in Italy on this trip but our stay in L’Olmo was definitely the highlight of the trip and we hope to return some day."
