  • 4 of 5

Overall:

GOOD! Unseasonal heat was a bit of a problem, but the fans provided were a real asset and quite used --- 24 hours per day!

Enjoyed Most:

Relative isolation and absolute absence of any noise or background annoyance.

Enjoyed Least:

Pool-area and installation which were quite complete was at a lower (recessed) level from the residence and a bit isolated. The location and surrounding plastic fence were obvious screens from the dust of an adjacent farm road, but meant that there was NO VIEW from the pool area itself. This was a pity.

Surrounding Area:

Good roads and trails in the extended area provided daily walks and access--also used by people living in the area. Their presence was never a problem!

Nearby Events or Locales:

Rignano sul Arno, the nearby town, took fifteen minutes by car (5 miles) and it had all the requisite shops and services, including doctor, pizzeria, COOP supermarket, train, and bus stations.

Tips or Restaurants:

Nearby restaurant (100 Palms) was a real find that was used daily. Quality and breadth of the menu were unequaled!

Directions:

GPS was invaluable in the surrounding area; we paid 20 Euros/day with our rental car.

Check In Out:

A house book, with suggestions, etc would have been appreciated. The caretaker, Roberta, was very helpful and provided information when requested.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Wonderful. What an experience. Beautiful villa with fantastic views.

Enjoyed Most:

I loved that there was so much room and the outdoor patio options were great. The weather was wonderful and we slept with the windows open each evening.

Enjoyed Least:

It should be noted in the description that a rental car is a must. It was noted on the RentVillas site that the train station was only a couple miles away and I thought I could walk it, but that was not the case. It was further away than anticipated and up and down hills.

Surrounding Area:

Rolling hills, beautiful garden, surrounded by beautiful trees. It was wonderful

Nearby Events or Locales:

Riggnano sull'Arno was the next town and where the train station is located. It was not walking distance. Cute area - a few shops, grocery store, small park.

Tips or Restaurants:

Rent a car with a GPS. It is imperative. Also remind people that all stores are closed on Sundays so if you arrive on Saturday, find your way to the grocery store for supplies.

Directions:

Used a GPS which worked wonderfully.

On Sunday we made our way around the corner and up the hill to a great family retaurant "Jolly Cafe". Wonderful.

Check In Out:

Check in and Check out were both easy. Thank you.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

I am still looking for that perfect word to describe this villa. It fulfilled my mother's dream of staying in a villa in Italy (she is 80). My husband, daughter and I got to share in her joy. There was not one negative about the property.

Enjoyed Most:

The place was magnificent, including accommodations, view and staff.

Surrounding Area:

Quaint towns, buildings and olive tree groves all around.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Rignano sull'Arno was the town we went to daily to catch our train to Florence. Not close enough to the villa but managed to work it out. The villa information makes it seem as though there are places within walking distance but not really. Again, we worked it out.

Tips or Restaurants:

Enjoy. Relax. Take it all in.

There is nothing that should destroy a vacation - especially at this villa!

Directions:

We had written directions. There were 2 taxis together from the airport and they communicated with each other. I had the directions in the front seat with myself and the driver. He seemed confused from time to time but figured it out. I cannot recommend any improvements as addresses are not as simple as in the US. One person in the group rented a car and had the GPS and after a couple of glitches seemed to find the villa.

Check In Out:

We arrived early and had to wait outside while the staff finished cleaning. The day was beautiful and there were no complaints about sitting in the sun. I imagine if the day was raining it would be an issue but we were lucky.

The beauty of the area.

Rignano sull Arno. Not within walking distance

Make sure to rent a car. The villa is not in town.

The owner was wonderful and very accommodating.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

We had the nicest time. Roberta helped us settle in and responded quickly whenever we had a question. The location was great and the house was beautiful and well maintained. We were very happy there.

Enjoyed Most:

The views were wonderful and the location was perfect for all the sightseeing we wanted to do.

Enjoyed Least:

We were cold inside the house and while it was warmer outside than in, the outdoor furniture wasn't available until our second week there. We were also aware of the other people (caretaker and family) living on the property; it was perhaps not as completely private as we thought it would be.

Surrounding Area:

Every direction we went in was a beautiful walk or drive.

Nearby Events or Locales:

There was no town within walking distance.

Tips or Restaurants:

The food and wine tasting at nearby Torre a Cano was delightful and everyone renting at the house would enjoy it. The wine was delicious - we bought quite a bit of it - and the food supplied made a wonderful meal.

Directions:

Directions were great.

Check In Out:

It was just fine. Roberta was a lovely hostess.

San Donato is located in the Florentine hills, very close to the city itself. After driving for about 20 miles, you will reach Florence, a majestic city world-renowned for its art and culture. Go here to shop the Ponte Vecchio, marvel at the statue of David, step back in time at the Pitti Palace, or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery. Of course, you could also simply relax in the Piazza della Signoria with a book or a refreshing drink. Of course you can also hop in the car and wander through the Chianti, tasting locally made wine and investigating many of the famed hill towns. Try Greve in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti. Day trips to other well-know Tuscan locales, such as Siena and San Gimignano, are also possible.
