Our family of 10 stayed at the villa between July 2-9/16. The villa has an excellent location, very close to Florence. It has a beautiful pool. Eric, who manages the property was very helpful and attentive to our needs and is very accessible as he lives next door. It is a large villa with lots of character. While the villa is generally tidy it could use a deep cleaning. Also the villa has very little air circulation upstairs, and though there were ceiling fans they didn't seem powerful enough to help with air movement. A positvie that wasn't mentioned on the villa profile is that there is a bus stop nearby that will take you into Florence, which is great because you don't want to drive in Florence if you don't have to. The villa has a great outdoor eating area that is covered from the rain/sun. Overall we had a great week in San Carlo.
La propiedad de San Carlos en la tostana que alquilamos este mes de julio era impresionante, tanto en ubicación, limpieza, trato y mantenimiento.
Una casa muy especial.
