We were lucky enough to stay at the Residenza Strozzi last October (2012) for a relaxing four nights. On arrival our host was very welcoming, and kindly showed us around the chapel and explained the local bus service, and the best places to visit in the area.
The owner had meticulously and tastefully renovated the chapel, complete with decorative frescos adorning the chapel ceiling and walls. The chapel itself is located in the grounds of a wealthy Hollywood media mogul country estate, with views across the distant skyline of Florence (you could make out the silhouette of The Duomo.)
I urge you to stay at this wonderful retreat and enjoy its peaceful surroundings and close proximity to Florence (in fact the pictures do not do this place justice.) I recommend this place and cannot wait to return again.

Residenza Strozzi has a large garden equipped with a table, chairs, and deck chairs. Parking is available on the premises. ... more less
