Hard to find, and needs a small car to get close as the village and lanes are extremely narrow - but once you're there, what a lovely garden.

If old world charm is what you are looking for, this is a wonderful place to stay. The apartments are very clean although not posh.

On the hills around Florence Villa Gamberaia boasts sweeping views over Florence and the Arno valley and sits amidst a spectacular Renaissance Garden. You can get there from Piazza San Marco with Bus nr.10 and then a short walk. www.villagamberaia.com

We caught the bus from Florence, which was very pleasant and easy, and walked the short way to the garden, which was a lovel walk. The garden was very well tended, and had amazing views over Florence, and the surrounding coutryside. Lovely way to spend a morning!

We loved visiting this garden. There are beautiful views over Florence. We went in late April and so there weren't many flowers in bloom, though there was a very peaceful atmosphere.
