My husband and I were taking his elderly parents on their first trip to Italy and wanted a quiet home base to tour both Florence and the surrounding area of Tuscany. We have previously traveled through Tuscany and have often expounded on the beauty of the scenery, the wonderful food and the kind people. All of these were true here; the villa and its grounds are very serene and our hostess Costanza was delightful. The villa is only two train stops from Florence or very close to highway connections, so we could easily sightsee, even shop the central market, and then to prepare a family dinner while the parents sat and recharged themselves in the garden. When we did not want to prepare our own dinner, Costanza made wonderful recommendations for dinners out.
