We stayed there for a summer in 2009 it was a wonderful experience then and again this visit. We know the rhythm of the village so enjoy all it has to offer
The view and the separate apartment.
They could replace some of the furniture in the living room as it is the same as in 2009 and it has not worn well (arm chairs in particular).
There was an olive oil festive happening in the local village. The village has everything you need, butcher, restaurant, coop, cafe etc.
Easy 25 min train ride to Florence.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Sant'Allero - 7 minute drive to the train station
Tips or Restaurants:
I would use/take advantage of all of half a dozen businesses in the town. Other than that we went into Florence
Check In Out:
Keep in mind that heating is charged according to consumption. We used it sparingly during our week and were charged 120 Euros on check-out, for reference. Note also that heating is only allowed between November 1 and April 1, by law.
We were 4 families, total of 12 spending Thanksgiving in Florence. The entire experience from start to finish was outstanding. Lorenzo was very quick to answer questions throughout the entire booking process. His concierge contact, Andrea, was very helpful is booking a private group trip to Siena and a wine tasting in Chianti. The views from the villa are exquisite, the rooms are all a good size and our group fit perfectly. The walk to the bus stop was very quick making it very easy to get into Florence without the worry of a car. Lorenzo also arranged a 4-course Italian dinner for all of us which was an incredible experience. We loved this villa and hope to be back soon!!
