"My wife and I travelled with our inlaws and stayed in this apartment. The owner was very helpful providing directions and meeting us at the apartment on the day we arrived. It was a short (10 minute) walk from the train station, although with the 90+ degree heat we were all very tired!
The location of the property is amazing. Very close to the Duomo and near the big market area.
The apartment was very clean and well maintained and had lots of room for our group of 4. For the price and the location the apartment was excellent and we'd definitely recommend it to others.
There were just a couple issues we ran into:
1. The hot water seemed to not work very regularly. Even being the first to shower at 4:30am there still might not be any hot water. Sometimes it was luke warm, sometimes it was downright cold.
2. The mattresses in the beds could use an update. They weren't very supportive
Overall we really enjoyed the apartment and chalked up both issues to part of the "charm" of being in an older building in such a great location."

Elegant, comfortable, and convenient Florence home
"We very much enjoyed our stay in this charming and well furnished home. It really was our home during our two-week stay in Florence. Elegantly decorated and furnished with every convenience, this home provided a perfect respite after long days of visiting churches and museums, and before evenings out eating and drinking in the neighborhood or farther afield (although on a few occasions we cooked at home). Conveniently located in Oltrarno, just south of the Arno River, we hopped the bus to the center of Florence, or simply walked up any of several paths to surrounding hills with spectacular views of the city. Close to the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens, this location is perfect -- just far enough away from the main concentration of tourists to provide a little room, and close enough to have easy access to just about everything."

"Dear Barry and Jody,
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing Le Valle with us. What a magical and memorable holiday! For our 50th birthday celebration my husband surprised our two kids age 9 and 6 along with me by planning an Italian Fantasy come true. Our surprise included the company of his sister, plus my sister, her husband, and their daughter (age 15). The eight of us were all able to “Live the Dream” in Tuscany.
From the moment our family arrived though the iron gates we were captivated by the beauty of the home. The sound of the fountain upon arrival mixed with the perfume of lavender, flowers, fresh herbs, and the country air immediately welcomed us home. The house was spectacular and wonderfully equipped with all we could ask for. The home itself is living beauty. It is impeccably furnished as though from a design magazine.
The home was spacious and we spent our moments poolside or dining al fresco on the many terraces. Mornings were met with a cup of cappuccino and open air. We looked forward to the evening visits by the wild boar enjoying the fruit from your trees.
Being close to Florence we were in a great location to enjoy the region. We spent day trips in Sienna, Florence, Lucca, and of course the nearby wineries. We always looked forward to coming back to Le Valle.
We truly appreciated the wonderful meals and expertise shared by Chef Fabrizio. Magi and Peter were fantastic as managers and served as ambassadors to the area. Thank you to Valeria for providing us with assistance each day around the villa. All of them helped us to enjoy ourselves more thoroughly though that seemed impossible.
The week came to an end all too quickly. We will always have our beautiful memories as well as our dreams of returning back.
Grazie, Grazie, Grazie!
Ft. Thomas, KY and Kansas City, MO"
