My husband and I booked this villa for our honeymoon. It was January so it was not peak travel season, but the view was still lovely and the weather was still temperate for us. The lovely two bedroom villa is beautifully appointed with so many extras were provided. It shows how thoughtful the owner is. Alba was very kind and made us feel very welcome at the villa. We would rent this villa again and definitely recommend it!
A beautiful historic house in a unique environment, Alba is a perfect host, gentle and always ready to help. . The house is cozy and perfectly restaured to its original conditions. A few minutes drive from Florence city center or 20 minutes bus, worth for staying in a relaxing peaceful environment far enough from the tourist crowd. Strongly recommended.
If you are looking for the true taste of Tuscany look no further this is the spot for you.
Situated approx. 15 klm north of Firenze a short 15 minute drive to the Firenze bus car park.
Dont miss The food market & leather shopping also of course Duomo.
The rolli g hills surrounding the villa abound in in Olive groves & Vines.
For day trips suggest Chianti, Sienna , Lucca Cinque Terre etc etc etc, the list goes on & on.
The accommodation is excellent as is the hostess Alba such a beautiful soul including her entire family.
We became lost upon arrival be Alba at 8.30 pm came to rescue us ha ha ha.
I could go on forever as we spent approx 3 weeks here September 2013 & hopefully will go back in the near future.
Excellent stay in beautiful location near Florence. Wonderful host who helped us feel at home. Gorgeous views and quiet respite from the city.
As stated the accommodation is located in a renovated historic complex. With that comes the mix of old and new. The quarters are somewhat cramped but have all the modern facilities. Quaint and cosy might be a good description. As 4 South African travelers the cost was acceptable. You will definitely require a vehicle and finding the entrance driveway is somewhat of a challenge the first time, especially when it is dark. However if you follow the directions and understand the Kilometer markings on the road then the 10 Km sign is hard to miss. Drive slowly and you will be fine. Turning in is tight and watch your front end valance. Alba our host was charming and informative. We found the location good for exploring Florence and Chianti. Local restaurants are excellent and well worth seeking out. Shopping for self catering is 5 km down the road in Caldine. Our trip into Florence was done on the Hop on Hop off bus which starts its Journey from the Piazza in Fieosole. Highly recommended as it takes you past the Piazzale Michelangelo lookout with exceptional views of Florence. There is plenty of parking in Fieosole once you have found it. It is located below the amphitheater. Ask anyone in the square for the tourist off and its plain sailing from there. All in all a great choice for a 3 night stay.
