We only had a 4 day break at the Villa il Mosaico, booked at the last minute, and was a bit concerned that we were not based in the City - it wasn't a problem at all, trams ran regularly and it was only 3/4 stops into the centre, it was a 5/7 minute walk from the villa but again, not a problem!
The Villa was lovely, the staff made us so welcome and couldn't have been more helpful both before we went and while we were there. We didn't have an apartment that looked out onto the courtyard but did take a look and would think in the summer it would be a lovely place to sit - as we were there to see Florence in October it didn't matter but know what to do next time!! All the comments about this Villa are true, it's a beautiful building and our apartment was very spacious (2 bed). The nice thing about an apartment is that after walking the city for many hours it's so nice to get back with a couple of bottles of wine and relax, much nicer than a hotel. Our only moan as far as we were all concerned was no easy means of making a cup of tea, boiling water in a great big saucepan is awkward - supplying a kettle would be great.
We had a lovely time in Florence, wonderful City and well worth a visit. We flew into Pisa as the air fare was so much cheaper, you buy tickets in the airport and the train is a few steps outside, so simple.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa il Mosaico and hopefully will return soon.
