We, family of 6, stayed in the Magnolia Suite. Clean rooms, 2 spacious rooms and one a bit smaller. The rooms had comfortable beds.
We asked for blankets and got it right away.
You get into the estate, from an urban neighbourhood, through a narrow gate, to a nice, quite place in natural environment. It is a 10 minutes drive from the center of Florence (the railway station).
The suite has an attached terrace viewing the garden. great for relaxation in the morning.
Breakfast was good and plenty. We had cereals with milk, yougurt, rolls, croissants, cheese, jam, coffee, tea, chocco drink.
Lee took care of everything: the check-in procedure, the extra blankets, breakfast and check-out.
Note: When we arrived, Lee was out and the door was locked. There was a note to get her on the phone. Since we did not have a cell-phone, we went around the villa and an old lady let us in and we called from the phone inside. You should have a cell-phone or talk to the villa ahead of time to make sure that they are expecting you.
