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!!
It was more than I hoped -- outstanding.
The views and the light -- it was stunning.
Also, the nights we had a private chef come in and cook -- oh my -- these were life events.
It was very easy to get the bus into Florence so we went into town every day.
Also, cab drivers knew the address and so getting a cab home was easy.
Nearby Events or Locales:
La Lastra was within walking distance. I loved the little cafe. I loved that there was an ATM. However, it is misleading to say there is a "grocery store" in La Lastra.
Tips or Restaurants:
Caffe Cibreo (which is close to Santa Croce) was fantastic.
When you order your groceries to stock the villa, include wine, beer and other adult beverages. I did not do that but Mario was kind enough to drive me into town to pick up these supplies.
Our cab drivers had no difficulty.
