Simply Amazing

This house is amazing - the views, the huge garden/outdoor living area and the charm & character of an ancient home. The location was great for day trips to Florence and Venice - staying out of the cities allowed for perfectly relaxing evenings with the family, drinking wine in the garden, playing ping pong, or cooking a big meal in the kitchen.

There were 8 adults and the house was more than big enough to accommodate us all more than comfortably.

Maria and Marco were very helpful via email before the trip in helping us plan things to do in the area, and upon arrival, there were many guidebooks they had put together to help us while there.

I hope to get back to Tuscany one day, and if I do make it back, I would love to stay here again.
Owner's Response: We have been very glad in hosting Randy and her family. They have been simply perfect and we are looking forward to host them again next year or later.

Marco, the owner, did everything to make this my dream holiday. He was so accomodating and helpful. And I had many many many requests that I feel were not the usual traveler questions. It was my first time to Italy, and my first time renting a home.
Marco was in constant communication with me for the months preceeding my 'big' trip. As I was planning this for myself and 4 friends there was alot of input from all parties and Marco was patient and knowlegable! He met us at the airport in Florence and assisted us with the initial provision shopping and then leading us to the beautiful Home in the village of Fornello!
He took great care to show us everything we would need to know to make this a pleasant stay.
'
We rented a car and I HIGHLY suggest the GARMIN GPS. Marco was so kind to put the address in it for me so we could go out and enjoy the countryside as well as Florence and get home each night without any problems.
Shopping in the village of Santa Brigida was convienent and they had everything you would need and the most pleasant and helpful staff. Not to worry if your italian language skills are not great- we got along perfectly.
The town of Fiesole was a beautiful find and there was a Flea Market on Sunday with some great treasures. There was also an Olive Oil Festival that we enjoyed.
The house was clean and pleasant. The washing machine was a great plus!!!!
The fireplace in the kitchen made the whole place more cozy.
Loved having so much space to roam about in. The 2 livingrooms made it possible for all of us to enjoy some quiet time too! The views were spectacular- though the garden were not yet in bloom - we could see life returning and can only imagine what it will look like in just a couple of weeks.
Did I mention how kind and accomodating Marco was? I could not imagine returning to Florence and not staying in this beautiful, well cared for and comfortable home. It gave me a peaceful resting place at night and the convience of seeing much of the countryside during the day.
Do not hesitate to reserve this beautiful home!
Owner's Response: Debora and her friends were the perfect guests, very nice persons. We enjoyed to help them organizing their trip. It was the first time we went to welcome guests at the airport, but it was really a good idea and we will do it gladly for those who will need it in the future. It is not difficult to reach our house with a GPS, but we think it is preferable to make the first trip with our help. Debora and her friends left our home after 10 days in perfect condition and we thank them for this. We hope to have them again as our guests.
