Very spacious

  • 4 of 5

We were a family group ranging from a 3 month old to a 89 year old. there is so much room in this villa for relaxing and doing your own thing. All beds were clean and comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped with more than enough of everything, the kettle however could do with up-dating.

The surrounding area is beautiful there is so much to see if you can drag yourself away from the villa

Thank you Luca for helping us out when we needed it you were always available if we had to contact you, we were very grateful that you could arrange transport for us

If we are fortunate enough to return to Florence we would certainly consider this villa again

Wirklich idyllisch!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine traumhafte Woche in der Villa. Luca hat uns sehr nett empfangen und viele Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt gegeben. Im April war leider der Pool noch nicht gefüllt und stattdessen mit einer Plane abgedeckt. Ansonsten wirklich alles so toll wie auf den Bildern! Sehr empfehlenswert!

Propriété très agréable mais piscine inutilisable

  • 2 of 5

Nous sommes arrivés le samedi 13 août dans la villa San Martino, la villa nous a beaucoup plus mais la piscine était verte, j'ai demandé au propriétaire si c'était normal il nous a dit que la piscine était traitée au Brome, alors que les skimmers étaient pleins de pastille de chlore. Nous lui avons fait confiance nous nous sommes baignés l'eau piquait énormément et les enfants ont attrapé des boutons dimanche nous avons donc rappelé le propriétaire qui n'a rien fait pour nous aider,un technicien est venu jeudi et nous n'avons pas pu nous baigner de la semaine.

Nous sommes en cours de procédure pour se faire indemniser.

Owner's Response: Je suis vraiment désolé pour le commentaire et je dois répondre. L'eau était belle et brillante même que tout l'été, et je l'ai montré aux invités aussi l'analyse chimique de notre Culligan technique attestant de la qualité. Malgré cela, certains des invités supposés experts, pendant le samedi soir, quand ils ont été laissés seuls dans la propriété, a eu l'idée d'ajouter plus PH sans ma permission. Les résultats nécessaires était que l'eau est devenue brune. Le technicien est venu le jeudi, mais a donné des instructions téléphoniques sur la façon d'intervenir, la finale est que le dimanche les résultats que je devais vider complètement la piscine de 90 mètres cubes et remplacés par des camions avec des barils avec l'eau de source. Je souhaite que cette situation regrettable ne se reproduise jamais dans l'avenir

Holiday at its best

  • 5 of 5

We were 10 adults and 4 little kids and enjoyed a wonderful holiday at Villa San Martino.

We had a very good contact with Luca, the owner before and at our arrival.

The house is beautiful and lovely furnished and with lots of space for everyone even if you want some privacy within a big group.

We enjoyed the pool as well as the big park around the villa.

Andrea cared for everything during our stay.

The kitchen has every thing you want and need.

All in all a big win for us.

Thank you Luca and Andrea

The Mugello valley is located between the cities of Firenze and the Apennines mountains from north to South Italy, the valley is comprised between 250 and 350 metres above sea level (Bilancino lake is 4 km away from the Villa San Martino is approximately 300 m away) This valley has always been considered by the Florentines, as the nicest area to go on holidays. The old family of the Medicis constructed several villas and castles. To go to the Mugello from north Europe is very easy, once in Italy, take the highway towards Rome and before getting to Firenze, take the Barberino di Mugello exit. The villa is located in a panoramic position, only 10 km from the highway.
