Five years ago I discovered LaContessina in the heart of Florence and have just returned from my 20th week there with a total of 106 friends from the USA (and will return in September with 20+ more)! I wanted to put my twist on "let's rent a villa out in Tuscany" so I decided we could rent apartments in Florence and invited friends to join me there. LaContessina was the perfect choice. Each couple has the convenience of their own fully equipped apartment and we can walk all over the city from the excellent location. The train station is two blocks away and from there we travel throughout the Tuscan region, Cinque Terre, Venice and Rome. The Pelagotti family own and operate the business and are most friendly and accommodating hosts. There is great pride of ownership and involvement from the family and staff and the apartments, courtyard, breakfast room and grounds are clean and inviting. The included breakfast each morning is generous and a real bonus for travelers. Speaking for over 100 guests, all of us have been more than pleased with our accommodations and experiences at LaContessina. The close walking proximity to all the major sights in Florence, the restaurants and shopping along Via Faenza, the 5-minute walk to the San Lorenzo markets and the central food market, and the safety and security we feel at LaContessina makes it the perfect home base for travel in Tuscany. Try it - you'll like it - "Patrizia" says so!
