Review for stay from 08 April 2016 to 23 April 2016
Comfortable; elegant but simple. Beautiful setting in the countryside up a hill from Grassina. Excellent location if you have a car; good location to access Florence without a car once you get used to the bus schedule and the beautiful walk to and from the bus stop. People in Grassina are friendly and helpful, and we found everything that we needed, such as groceries, toiletries, pharmacy items and good dinners out, right in Grassina.
Review for stay from 25 December 2009 to 30 December 2009
We loved the place, very big and confortable, nice view, quiet. (Directions provided to find the place were not very helpful, it took us 1 hour to find it once we were in Florence- and it is only about 10 mins. from Florence)
However, when we arrived (December 25), the place was ice cold, no heating had been put on prior to our arrival. It had been cold in the appartment for a while...all the bed sheets and the blankets were wet with humidity, we had to put them on the heaters to dry them out, the sheets dried fast enough, but 2 days for the blankets and it took 2 days for the appartment to warm up (all stone walls). I mentionned this to the property manager to ensure that we would not be changed for all the heating on these 2 days as it should not have been up to us to 1. heat the appartment and 2. dry the bed sheets/blankets. Upon departure, they wanted us to pay 350$ Euros. for the heat for 5 nights. They only wanted to remove 50$ for the 2 fist days, I had to argue and argue with them to reduce the price. So moral of this is that if you have to pay for heating, ask how much per day in advance...
