First, we are Americans traveling with two kids, 4 years and 6 months on a road trip through Italy. We found this charming villa for around 165 euros a night. We wanted to not be in the city since parking can be challenging and dad is tired of navigating. It is a perfect location just a short walk to the Firenze Sightseeing bus. You're out of the city but in a quiet neighborhood. Checkin was simple, staff greeted everyone including the kids. We needed a triple room which is harder to find and this was a great option for my son. Some things naturally need to be overlooked since it is an older hotel. Key things to know, beautiful pool, great chef, tasty food at a reasonable price, free parking, elegant bar, comfortable beds, mini bar, wifi, free breakfast. This villa really has most everything you need. Our only issues were mosquitoes which can't be avoided in August and the wifi which seem to go off every night from 1:51am to 7 or 8am. We stayed in the back house and would stay here again.
