Had a fantastic week at Il Palagetto. We stayed in a split level villa with our two teen age boys. It was relativity roomy, was clean and had good self catering facilities. We we're slightly apprehensive regarding no air conditioning, however the villa was cool compared to outside due to the tiled floor, shutters and fans, the temperature was between 32-36 outside in the day most days.
Outside the villa is a shared courtyard with slight shade from large trees which was perfect for eating out.
The shared pool is small but perfect for cooling off in and swimming in. Even though the other villas were occupied (I think there are 3/4 that share the facilities) we had the pool to ourselves all week apart from the odd few hours. We basically had our own private pool.
We drove from the UK so had the facility to drive and explore. Il Palagetto is quite remote so a car is recommended. Florence is a short drive away then short bus journey. We also drove to Lucca and Pisa. All well worth a visit.
Our hosts were very friendly and genuinely nice people who wanted to help and make sure we had a good holiday.
Beautiful walks locally up and down the steep lanes. There are a couple of local restaurants we visited the Trattoria La Gargotta and was fabulous. Only a 10 minute walk away.
Amazing views of Florence.
Chilled out holiday.
