Very nice, warm and secluded

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here as two families, 10 people total. It was a little difficult to find because it is so secluded. But once we were there we parked and spent three days in Florence. The bus stop is a 8 minute walk away, and the 11 bus takes you right downtown.

Rooms were warm. Lucia was a great personable host. Views and hills are lovely.

The wifi is a mobile hotspot. I got it to work by putting it out on the window sill. But the 10 of us each with our own mobile devices used up the limited internet.

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful place to stay. We were able to catch a metro from the train station right to the villa. Our host/hostess was very kind. When we got off at the bus stop our host was waiting for us. There was 10 of us and we had a lot of backpacks and luggage. He loaded it up in his car and drove it to their villa while we walked up the road and the beautiful area to get to the villa. The grandkids loved the swimming pool. We had comfortable beds. The grandkids loved the video games. The metro went right by a grocery store. The metro also took you right into town. We would highly recommend staying at this villa.

New Orleans area

Beautiful views - Secluded but accessible

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 8 enjoyed the large family feel of the home in the Florence country side. The table for ten and the very large lounge area was a selling point for me. Our host was warm, helpful and knowledgeable of the area. After our long journey we were surprised that we had to make our own beds before retiring and the heating was less than what we were familiar with for a very chilly late March. As in many of the older homes electricity was a matter of choice...the hair dryer or the oven. Even though we walked down the lane to and from the bus stop. I would recommend a car, if possible. Overall the home was delightful and our family will remember it fondly! Thanks

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am very sorry that your holiday in our house was not perfect. We usually provide bed linen and bathroom towels washed and packaged to ensure their cleanliness. I'm sorry that you did not appreciate it. The bus stop is just 400 meters from the house, our guests do not normally consider it a great distance. The bus runs regularly every 30/40 minutes and in 15 minutes arrives to the historic center of Florence. It is a convenient solution. Of course if you have difficulty walking, the car is definitely more comfortable. Also considering that the house has private parking spaces. The heating was automatically set to 22 degrees. I'm sorry that was not hot enough for you. The electrical power is the normal one of a large town house. Sometimes with many electrical appliances working can break away. I assure you it does not happen often. It was a pleasure meeting you and would have preferred to know that you were completely satisfied, anyway hope you enjoyed a nice holiday and I’m happy to know you got pleasant memories of your stay in our house in Florence.

La villa correspond parfaitement à la description et est très agréable et bien équipée.

L' accueil est parfait. L' accès est facile au centre ville grâce au bus 11 et 5 minutes de marche à pieds. Je recommande cette location.

Tranquilidad a un paso de Florencia

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasado unos días inolvidables en esta casa (9 personas). La casa está muy bien, limpia y es muy amplia. Tiene todo lo necesario. Está en un entorno muy tranquilo. Aunque nos movimos mucho, hicimos buenas barbacoas en el jardín. La piscina, aunque pequeña, sirve para relajarte después de una jornada agotadora. Cerca hay un supermercado grande y autobús para Florencia. Pero el acceso es un poco extraño. Lucia es encantadora y nos trató estupendamente. Muy interesante para conocer la Toscana.
