Alba was a wonderful hostess and this apartment was very nice and very clean!! We knew that we were booking outside of Florence but with he narrow, windey roads, this was a much longer drive into Florence than we expected. I would absolutely stay here again if I was looking for someplace for a sabbatical/respite from the world but if you want to sightsee, its a bit far.
Dears thank you for being our welcome guests and for the review
We met very little because you were engaged in excursions and visits I regretted not having been able to say goodbye
You left earlier then agreed
The indication on our position and the distances from the center of Florence are well indicated on Google maps I drive my grandson to school every day in 15 minutes I hope to see you soon and why not for a sabbatical? many greetings
Very atmospheric villa, perfect location in the Florentine hills
As a family of four with two teenagers, this was the perfect cozy base of operations for trips to Florence, Lucca, Siena and Pisa. It’s location in the hills and under the shade of trees made for a more cool environment than hot Florence, easily 5-10 degrees lower inside. Alba was a wonderful host together with Alfredo who supplied us with advice where to go for shopping and eating local delicacies. Nearby Santa Brigida had the nicest supermarket with a predominant Tuscan selection of cheese, meat and wine. The house itself had all the amenities you want so we could make meals ourselves, had a dishwasher, laundromat, coffeemachine etc., we didn’t miss anything. You can indeed hear traffic passing by in the distance, especially with windows open but we didn’t mind that much, the cicadas were often more loud. If you want a quiet, cozy place to stay near Florence with added benefits of local products, being less hot in the summer than the city itself and with a very interesting historic feel to boot, we would heartily recommend staying here!

De woning was netjes en mooi gelegen. Alles was aanwezig tot vaatwasser wasmachine en droger. Maar.....er lag een hele drukke weg pal langs het huis. Daardoor was er veel lawaai, ook s nachts. Dat stond NIET in de brochure.
Lovely villa, stunning scenery & a very kind owner.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely, cosy & comfortable villa, there was ample room for 3 adults & everything we needed.
The surrounding scenery is stunning, especially with the forests in their autumn colours. It was easy to walk from the villa onto the great footpath network, through the beautiful oak & chestnut forests.
Whilst there was a little road noise, it certainly didn't spoil our stay in anyway. Its an ideal base for walking, visiting Florence & the surrounding area.
The owner Alba was exceptionally kind to us & very helpful.

I loved to spend some time touring my beautiful city with you

I will keep it in my best memories
We stayed for two weeks in September and were greeted by Alba on arrival who was very pleasant. The place was very clean and tidy and contained the basics in terms of foodstuffs when we arrived. The bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen contained all that had been promised in terms of equipment – basic and compact but adequate for 2. There are wonderful views from the patio across the rolling hills. We spent a lot of our time out and about in the region and found the location very convenient for visiting Florence and the other main attractions.
Some points we had difficulty with – this is not our idea of a “villa”- its more like a two bed apartment. We discovered that the structure seen in the photos is in fact divided into 3 apartments. The nearby house complex (with the tower) also houses 3 families. This results in the small car park containing over 6 vehicles at night and limited privacy due to designated “communal” areas. We found our part of the villa to be quite dark and gloomy and lights were needed at all times of the day. While Alba is an exceptionally hospitable lady she does not speak English – and relies on Google translate. There was little or no interaction with her and the other residents – probably because we were away a lot and also we speak very limited Italian. The house did not contain any “welcome manual” listing local restaurants, shops and the other usual suggestions re places to visit, important phone numbers in emergencies etc. etc.
Our biggest negative was the road noise. When booking the property we asked then about proximity to the road but were reassured that it was “ a quiet country road with very little traffic”. In fact there is loud, continuous road noise 24/7. This is much worse during weekends and lengthy rush--hours/school-runs in the morning and evenings. Due to being on a steep hill there is the whine of constant racing engines and gear changes for cars, trucks and the extra loud, very numerous, motorbikes and scooters. To sleep we were forced to close windows which is not very desirable at 25 degrees. The noise and the smell of fumes made it unpleasant to sit on our wee patio in the evenings for a drink.
We have experienced many holiday gites/cottages in other parts of Europe which were much better and for that reason we are able to give only limited endorsement.
I thank you very much for your stay
I am happy you enjoied your stay and all the visit in our beautiful region
Really we had few opportunities to meet since you went around every day
Thr Villa is about 1000 sqm and it is composed by 4 units including my house and yours.
It is clearly written we live on the other side of the garden.

I will take in great consideration your advise and will prepare an House book instead of giving time by time all information , as we do usually, in base of interest of the Guests
The Villa is at 300 meters from the main road, all windows and doors are equipped with double glazing also with thermal and acoustic function
I'm sorry you were still disturbed
We our best wishes
