Why Roberto chose Gavinana - Galluzzo

Ideal tuscan location, just a mile from downtown. Beautiful and recently renovated property.

What makes this house unique

A true Under the Tuscan Sun experience with all the comfort and the vicinity of all Florence has to offer. All this at a very affordable price. We are about 1.5 Km from the old doors of the city. Taxis are a very convenient way to go to and to come back from the city. The ride to the first major square with all the shops (Porta Romana, where the old walls of the city are located) is about 4 minutes and will cost you about 5 euros. You can call the taxi from the house or send them a text message and they normally arrive withing 5 minutes. A ride all the way to the train station or to the Duomo is about 10 minutes and 10-15 euros. By taking a taxi you avoid worrying about parking. And actually you cannot go any further than Porta Romana with private cars.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We were here for a week with our kids (13 and 9). The pool was just great for them. The gardens are beautiful and the apartment comfortable and well equipped. The location is great about a 30 minute walk to the City along a quiet safe roads. Lots of taxis available for the the return journey. Roberto is really helpful and a true gentleman. We would highly recommend this property.

Sensational find blends city and country!

  • 5 of 5
My mom and I couldn't believe our good fortune at finding this stunning vacation property! Even though we had no car it was no problem since it's a very short and easy bus or cab ride up the hill from Porta Romana, which allowed us to enjoy Florence every day while having lovely breakfasts and dinners on the terrance in a beautiful rural location with a gorgeous view. It's so peaceful and serene for relaxing at the end of the day and sleeping at night, and the pool is a terrific bonus.

The house itself is lovely and spacious - two beautiful queen bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, a well-appointed kitchen that we cooked in every night, and a large living-dining room. The WiFi worked perfectly. We didn't need the AC because the thermal massing of the house and the breezes at night keep it pleasantly cool even in 30 degree weather, but all the major rooms have it. Roberto is an excellent host - the communication leading up to our arrival was excellent, and he was always available to help with any special needs or requests after our arrival, but as another guest pointed out, always in a quiet and unobtrusive kind of way, so we had complete privacy.

This place offers visitors to Florence the very rare opportunity to experience both the Renaissance city and the Tuscan countryside, even if you don't have a car. We stayed one week and will definitely return, next time for longer, and we highly recommend it to anyone! It is a complete jewel - you won't find anything else like it.

Incredibly beautiful and serene location

  • 5 of 5
Firstly, apologies to Roberto for this delayed review - nothing to do with our stay as this was such an amazing break for us.

Enchanting is too often used to describe what is just a great experience, however, from the moment we arrived we were truly enchanted by our surroundings, the jasmine perfume, the tranquility, the frogs! This was to be excelled when we awoke in the morning to the most beautiful view, both of the Tuscan countryside and also the grounds surrounding us. Adding a hot tub from which to survey all was the icing on the cake.

Our host Roberto could not have been more accommodating, always there to assist but in a quiet, background way. We have travelled far and wide and this has to be the most perfect combination for a relaxing time. Proof if needed is that we had intended to spend three days exploring Florence but only managed a short foray on the last day - next time !!

Would we recommend this property to a friend or relative - absolutely and have done so even to strangers.

We hope to return next year, all being well.

Thank you once again Roberto for letting us share your lovely home.

Amazing site in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 4 nights at the Giardini di Marignolle in Florence in the wider Limonaia house; there are no words to describe the quality of this place! Everything was absolutely perfect! Roberto gave us such a warm welcome! He went out of his way to show us all the facilities. The landscaping, terrace and pool are just gorgeous. We should have booked for a longer stay. This place is an absolute must!

The house is in a fantastic environment, so quiet that the only way to leave it is to see the magnificents places in the city of Firenze 3 kms away.

Great property at a great price

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to stay for the price. We stayed for 5 nights in rainy March and were very pleased. The house is one of several houses on a large and beautiful family owned Tuscan property. There are two large bedrooms, 2 large bathrooms, a kitchen, and living room- almost too much space for a couple, but it would have been perfect for two couples or a family. Everything about the property was as advertised- wi fi in the living room and kitchen, clean, well maintained furnishings, and a fully stocked kitchen for cooking.

One of the main draws to this place was that there was available parking. We used the house as our Florence homebase and visited many other Tuscan towns with our rental car. However, even with a car don't underestimate the amount of walking you will do. We always found free parking in Porta Romano Square (5 minute drive), but it was a 20 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio and the heart of Florence. Since Florence is open to limited vehicle traffic, this is an important consideration when selecting this property. Taxis were available at Porta Romano square.

Also, the roads in this part of Florence are narrow and windy- not for the faint of heart! My GPS sent us down a particularly treacherous path. I'd recommend getting directions from Roberto ahead of time to avoid this hazard.

Roberto was a perfect host, he was very responsive to our inquiries before arriving and was even able to accomodate us a few days early when our travel plans changed. After arrival, he stayed out of our hair and encouraged us to roam around the beautiful property. He recommended two restaurants and two grocery stores. One of the restaurants, 4 Leonis Taverna, was excellent, and the Il Centro market was perfect for picking up a few items for breakfast. We also cooked dinner at home one night and found all the utensils we needed in the kitchen.

The house was a little on the cold side and had some water coming in the windows in the converted greenhouse, but for the price per night, I couldn't have been more pleased. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
