Beautiful Cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautiful and well appointed. It was a bit hard to find the first time but then a breeze after that. Upon arrival by GPS you will come upon a resturant on the right side of a small one lane road. Keep driving and you will hit a second restaurant. At that point make a U turn up the private dirt driveway and you will dead end into the property's motorized gate. The cottage is beautiful and well appointed. There is no air conditioning but being up on a hill we had a nice breeze and huge windows and doors we could leave open all night. The property is very secure but we did get a few bug bites. The only complaint we had was the Wifi. It was finicky to log onto, stay logged onto and would only allow 3 devices at a time. There was 5 of us travelling and trying to conduct some business as well as surf the web recreationally was a constant challenge. Aside from that we really enjoyed our stay

We stayed there with family and it was truly spectacular. It noted by some other guest - it was a bit tricky to find it the first time. The owner was very hospitable. The house is very well furnished. The road to the house is quite bumpy, so make sure the suspension in your car is in good health. Overall - great experience. Very easy to take a train to Florence - free parking, reasonably frequent day time trains.

Lugar muy tranquilo. Bonito paisaje para ver y pasear, tanto en monte como en llano. Estancia confortable. Casa muy espaciosa, agradable y bien equipada. Amplio jardín, mucha privacidad. Necesario contar con coche. Estación de tren y parada de autobús a 3 km, con buen acceso a Florencia y otros lugares. Calor en agosto, necesaria protección contra mosquitos. Buena atención por parte del propietario.

country house in the hills

  • 4 of 5

The house is loaded with charm, very well appointed and plenty big enough for 6-7 people. The view over the hills is magnificent. Very quiet and peaceful. Car is a must as house is slightly isolated although very good restaurant at the bottom of the rocky driveway. Florence only 30 minute away on commuter train.
