We loved this quiet refuge on the side of the hill. It was a great 15 minute walk down to one of the best restaurants we went to in Italy (2nd best I've ever been to). It is the only restaurant in Girone which is the little village at the base of the hill. I would drive to Girone to go to this restaurant no matter where I stayed in Florence.
But back to the villa - If you don't like walking, then you need to have a car, as it is a great little up hill climb from the bus stop (15 minutes). When you arrive and depart the managers will take you and your luggage as required. The rooms are spacious, with a rustic quality as fits the location. Cooking facilities are also provided together with a communal living area, which is great fun. We had a great time although it was a little too cool to swim in the pool despite it being very inviting
