Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

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.

Tranquilidad

  • 4 of 5

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.

The place was super. Newly remodeled, very private, a slice of paradise! Very friendly caretakers, convent to town and highway. After finding the place it was easy to find again. Would recommend this to everybody. Thanks for making our stay special. FYI city tax is in addition to quoted rates.

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.
