Once we found it (see below), this really was the most fantastic place to stay. It is so quiet and peaceful - no tourist honeypots around here, and yet we could drive to the outskirts of Florence in around 20 minutes (getting to the centre was another matter). Be aware though, that there is no air conditioning, and a car is essential. The accomodation was beautifully decorated, and the garden was delightful.

If you are looking for a peaceful vacation in an idyllic setting, this is the place for you. The grounds are beautiful and extremely well-maintained. The vistas and lush vegetation are breathtaking. The units are very clean and spacious. We stayed in the Lorenzo and our family of four had more than enough room. It is situated just a short drive from Florence, which is great for sightseeing and shopping. You will not be disappointed. more
