What a lovely week we had at Valdirose! Irene, Paolo and Giovanni were perfect hosts and so very accommodating. They helped us plan where to go and what to do each day over breakfast, in the gorgeous conservatory with the sun streaming in, and were always happy to take us to the local train station whenever we needed. It was an easy drive to Lucca, San Gimignano and Siena. One evening we walked back from the train station and in comparison to all the steps you find in the cathedrals and villages the hill was a breeze and the walk refreshing after a day in Florence. The rooms are lovely and 'Memorie' was perfect for two friends wanting share a room but not a bed! The house is beautifully decorated and a nice haven from the busyness of Florence while being central to jump in the car and explore Tuscany. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Valdirose.
