Amazing location with unbelievable views. Location, people everything was more than expected.
You are the best. It was our first time with Summer In Italy won't be the last one for sure. Thanks Luca and crew.
We had the absolute pleasure of being guests of Villa Floriana B for nearly three weeks.
The view from our terrace was breathtaking and we could not believe how handy everything was. Just a few steps from our front door there were deli, restaurants and bars.
We would recommend Villa Floriana B to everyone and would definitely go back.
The two lovely ladies who welcomed us, Sofia and Maria, did everything they could to make our visit memorable. Keep doing what you are doing!
Luca, you made everything so easy and we would book through Summer In Italy again for our next visit in Italy. Thank you.
We thought Villa Floriana B was excellent.
The terrace was amazing and we were thrilled when we first walked into the apartment to find how modern and clean it was.
What made our stay however was the fantastic welcome we received from the apartment manager. She could not have been more charming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for her.
We would certainly recommend this accommodation and Summer In Italy.
It is the first time we have used Summer In Italy and we would definitely check your website before any other. Thank you.
We loved every minute of our stay at Villa Floriana B.
After a number of day trips, it was wonderful to return for a swim in the pool looking over the Tuscan hillside views and stroll to a nearby restaurant for dinner.
After meeting up with family in Florence, we picked up our rental car and headed west to San Baronto. We called the owner of Villa Floriana B as we left Florence to let her know we would be arriving in approximately an hour. The drive from Pistoia is easy, but has many curves as you climb to the top. Beware the cyclists, this area is popular for cyclists, which was exciting for us since we were planning on doing some of our own. When we arrived at Villa Floriana B we were greeted by Sophia [the caretaker] who is molto gentile. She showed us our apartment, which had beautiful views looking over the hills, valley, and mountains in the distance. Sophia was kind enough to show us other apartments for future consideration. Each one was clean and spacious. It would be important to specify your preference with a view.
Hope to return to San Baronto in the future.
