Family hotel/villa/ within 15 miles of Florence for 3 nights

We are planning our first trip to Italy, and planning to be in Tuscany for 4 days three nights, and looking for a Villa/Hotel/Inn that is family friendly with a pool and within 15 miles of Florence. We most likely will rent a car for this part of our stay, but would prefer to take the train, or hotel shuttle into Florence, and use the car to drive to other locations in Florence. Our boys are ages 8 and 13.

Thank you for your suggestions!

Hi,

I would certainly recommend Villa Torre Rossa which is between Florence and Impruneta and 15 minutes drive from town.

You havent said whether you are arriving by plane or train but we arrived by train and the car rental on Borgo Ognissanti was a 10 minute walk from the station.

There is a bus which goes past the villa on a regular basis which will take you back into town for 2 euro each.

We were there only two weeks ago and took the opportunity to drive through around the country side as far as Siena visiting a lot of smaller towns and wineries.

We mostly used the SR 222 road and you also have easy access to the Autostrada although the GPS will take you on a goat track between Impruneta and the Autostrada.

The villas are self contained with good cooking facilities and the the Supermarket INCOOP in Impruneta is only 10 minutes drive from the villa.

There are only positive reviews which you will easily find here on trip advisor.

Eliza for the villa is a truly wonderful host and our stay was by far the highlight of our month long trip.

Cheers,

Craig.

Thank you so much for your response. Sadly we will only be in Florence for 3 days, I wish it was longer. We have decided to stay at a place that is a few miles outside of Florence, the Villa Olmi.
