Been here first time in 2014... now we have been back for 10 days. This time with my parents. We stayed in two fantastics rooms, one room in the main building and another room just in the front, both were very nice. A large plus is the silence, the pool and the fantastic people.

Stayed here in July with friends. The accommodation is very old world in decor. It's very close to Florence for visiting the sites. The grounds are ok however could do with some landscaping to improve the appearance. The pool is a decent size for a dip after a long day touring. Good accommodation at a reasonable price.

From the manager to the cook, everybody was so incredibly helpful and nice. The manager of the hotel helped us out with everything, she gave us names of restaurants and directions, on how to go there, she really helped us, she even gave us tips on where to go outside of Florence. The property is really great too, 8 whole...

It was perfect in every way, the accommodations were excellent, the countryside beautiful and definitely a plus being so close to Florence. The owner, Verena was very pleasant and helpful with printing directions and obtaining accommodations for the next stop of our travels. We were only able to stay 2 nights, just wish it could have been longer, maybe next...

We would like to second all the positive reviews already written. It seems as if we could not have picked a better location for our holiday: a real Tuscan villa like in the movies with olive and cyprus trees, a 15-minute train ride away from downtown Florence, with very hospitable and friendly owners. We are already planning a return next...

We planned 3 days on the spot but ended up with 7 days. The location is absolutely fantastic. The staff are incredible. Breakfast is very nice. The swimmingpool is clean and the best place to be in a hot afternoon. Everything about this place is so nice and we will return next year.

This was absolute heaven. The villa and the setting are fantastically beautiful, our room was enormous & beautifully done, the swimming pool is wonderful. Verena, her brother and all the staff were charming & so friendly, and particular thanks to Verena who was helpful beyond measure, organising delivery from the local takeaway so we could have lunch by the pool,...

This place is really nice, the staff is friendly, the view is amazing and the location is out of a dream. I would recommend this place for a nice relaxing summer vacation in Tuscany. The setting could not be more romantic the people could not be nicer. A complete 10.
