My partner, toddler and I stayed here for 5 nights in June. The location allows you to be close to the city but feel as if you're in the countryside. The views from the terrace at Bencista are spectacular. The food is delicious - both dinner and breakfast. Given the quality, I found the price of dinner to be extremely reasonable. It was lovely to relax and drink a glass of wine on the terrace while enjoying the wonderful view. The staff are very friendly and helpful; they were especially kind to our child.
We stayed during a heat wave and carried our child in a baby carrier to the bus stop a few times. It's only about a 15 minute walk with the steep driveway our of Bencista being the most difficult part. You can buy bus tickets at the pensione.
The other option is to take a taxi to Florence which can cost anywhere from 20 to 30 euros. Generally, I found taxis in Florence to be more expensive than other Italian cities, such as Rome.
I would definitely stay here again!More
