Wonderful Week at Villa I Cipressi
We spent a wonderful week at the delightfully rustic Villa I Cipressi in mid-October. A quiet, peaceful location on a gorgeous hilltop olive orchard on the outskirts of Lastra a Signa, but just a 4 minute drive to the train station from which we could conveniently get to Florence in about 15 minutes without the hassle of having to drive. Our host, Paola, is incredibly gracious and took very good care of us ( preparing a welcoming snack and bottle of tasty wine upon arrival as well as escorting us on a morning trip to Florence where Paola took us to the fabulous indoor food market, a fun coffee bar where we enjoyed a suberb capuccino, and several great shops). Lastra a Signa is perfectly located for day trips throughout Tuscany - we hit Pisa and Lucca one day, Siena and the Chianti road another, and San Gimignano on yet another excursion. The IperCoop, a combination of Whole Foods,Trader Joes, and Costco is a very short drive away and is a destination in itself. Fabulous choice of food and drink including lots of well-prepared ready to eat dishes along with the freshest produce, meats, fish, baked goods, and typical supermarket fare. Perfect for those few nights we felt like eating in. There are two terrific restaurants nearby as well. It was a bit cool to use the inviting pool but the fireplace was a real treat. Highly recommended!
