We stayed at La Casa Martini, in La Casa Degli Amici in 2009 and 2011. Those were the best holidays we had since a long time. The welcome from Beatrice and Laura is genuine and makes you feel home straight away. They are generous and always helpful. The apartment is clean, roomy and features beautiful antique furnishings. The area offers breathtaking views, calm and rest. Ideally located in the country side, but still close to Florence, it is an ideal base to visit Florence, Siena, San Gemignano or even Pisa. And after a nice day of sightseeing, La Casa Martini offers a chlorine-free swimming pool to relax and refresh. Local markets and restaurants will let you discover the fantastic tastes of Tuscany cuisine. The perfect place to unwind and enjoy well deserved holidays. Looking forward to go back to La Casa Martini !
