We have just returned from a lovely week staying at La Canigiana. It is a great location not just for Florence but also for all the beautfiul little villages and towns in Tuscany recommended by Alessandra. She is a perfect host in that she leaves you to enjoy your time staying on their olive farm but is always on hand for information on places to visit and to recommend and book local restaurants or galleries in Florence. Her welcoming apple and apricot cake was delicious as were the home-made after dinner drinks and biscuits she and her husband, Franco, offered us one evening. After visiting Tuscany during the day, we loved our evenings sitting out on our patio with a glass of Chianti enjoying the views and the swallows and listening to the crickets. The pool is great and the grounds are beautiful and being able to pick vegetables from the garden was an added bonus. We would highly recommend La Canignana.
