Great view of Florence (from the balcony, hedge needed trimming!) pool is great but inside is tired.
The check in process was long winded. We felt rushed to be there to meet the cleaner at a specific time but had been delayed in Rome getting the hire car and had had a 3.5 hour drive. A key safe would have been good. There were 3 security gates to get through though which I wasn’t aware of. Although we felt safe it was tedious. The villa is huge and generally comfortable. The lounge seating wasn’t relaxing and the dining chairs were plastic and wobbly. The bedrooms were spacious with lots of storage and the beds and linens were wonderful. The only bath though had a plumbing problem so we couldn’t use it all week. I tried to use the plunger but that made things mucky. The pool and patio around it are perfect. Plenty of chairs and loungers too and pool towels provided. The patio outside the house though is crumbling away and very uncomfortable with bare feet. We all enjoyed the ping pong but unfortunately the grass on the lawn was a foot long so the children couldn’t play badminton with the provided net or football. The air con was needed as the weather was fantastic! The kitchen had everything we needed but it was the most neglected part of the house. It was very tired, broken drawer with resident dead moth, dirty inside cupboards and the slowest toaster ever! The house was plenty big enough for the 5 of us but on closer inspection it was disappointing,
The villa was fabulous for our extended family of 8. The views are unmatched.
The pool was a great respite from the summer heat. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to be on the fringe of Florence. It was also a central location for us to visit chianti - bologna and take the train to venice for the day.
Beautiful position, but in need of an update.
This is a very large, secure villa, with amazing views, a lovely garden and pool. However, the general condition requires attention and the villa is in need of an update and TLC. The kitchen has plenty of crockery, but is poorly equipped in other areas, with few utensils, and no plastic glasses or crockery which can be safely used outside.
The holiday was enjoyable, however, I would not return as I have stayed in far better self catering accommodation in other locations, and for less money. I certainly would not describe it as luxurious and modern, more basic and in need of upgrade!
Great villa. Magnificent view. Nice pool.
Most of the things were as we would expect it to be.
We had some little things, but they were fixed promptly.
When we visited the city (Firenze, Florence) we drove to Firenze Castello train station. A single drive to Firenze SMN (Central Station) is € 1,50 per person (a train every half our, see trenitalia.com). A lot of free car park space at Firenze Castello.
When renting this villa, you have to take in account that it will take you 15-30 minutes to get into the centre of Firenze.
Amazing views and 15 min from Florence!
Our most favorite things about this house were the views and how close it is to Florence. It is in a very quiet neighborhood. The house is large and comfortable. We were greeted with a nice bottle of wine and some water. Also we had coffee packets for the coffee machine. That was very nice. Downstairs, the kids found a Wii with games, and I found the washing machine and iron which was very helpful. We also were able to access Netflix on the TV, so we had a couple of good movie nights. The house itself is large, a bit dated, but certainly has everything you need to be comfortable. We did have a bit of an issue with ants in the kitchen and mosquitoes at night. We made sure that we took out the garbage every day which seemed help with the ants. Overall, we would definitely stay at this house again. Our best memories of this house will include coffee on the patio in the morning looking at Florence, and ending our day with a nice glass of wine at sunset with the view. Thank you!
This property is incredible. The views over Florence are beautiful at all hours of the day, but we especially loved hearing the church chimes in the morning. The beds are comfortable, the house is spacious. The property is secluded and peaceful, yet it is only 15 minutes up the hill from Florence. Fiesole is about 15 minutes away and not to be missed. The pool was perfect on the near-100 degree days. We hated to leave!
Thank you so much Heidi, it was a pleasure hosting you, your beautiful review reflect your sincerity and your kindness. I hope to see you again in Florence.
