A haven from which to enjoy Florence

  • 5 of 5

Francesca was a very attentive hostess and provided advice about local travel as well. The property was perfect for a group of couples as we each had a room with an ensuite. The kitchen/ great room were our gathering headquarters to cook meals and play pool.

The grounds were expansive and the pool was an added bonus when the sun came out, it was difficult to leave the relaxing cabana area. The location provided a haven to recharge in, with the old city of Florence a 25 minute bus ride to all major sights. Bus stops were easily accessible from the property.

We hope to return soon, thank you Francesca for taking such good care of us.

5 stars for this property. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Great place for larger group to explore Florence and Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

We (6 adults & 5 kids) had a very pleasant stay and recommed the property to others. It is a spacious and well maintained property (all the rooms have A/C and bathroom). As you can tell from pics its inventory is not really modern, but relaxing / cozy and fully functional.

Rooms are in first floor and there is a large terracce (be aware that you need to keep party/volume low at nights as neighbours are close by). BBQ in the garden. Large, clean and very nice pool with shower, toilet and refrigerator (but you need to walk a few meters as it is not directly attached to the house)

There is a bus to Florence center (app 15 minutes) and a few good pizzerias close by.
