You stumble on this place not realising its proximity to Florence. A beautiful villa in lovely surroundings. I booked a double room which comprised an ample bathroom, large double bedroom and a spacious lounge with kitchen facilities - a large fridgefreezer, sink, dishwasher and gas hob.
The welcome from the hosts deserves special mention - extremely helpful and friendly - even remembering your name hours after check in. Free ADSL cable provided by the owner as the wifi did not reach my room. Breakfast delivered to room a lovely touch. My only minor gripe - check-out at 10am does seem extraordinarily early! I will be back and have extended my one night's stay to two!
