Very rarely does one come across a property that absolutely makes one feel as if their own home has been transported to accommodate their travel.
Rolando Galli, the owner, makes every effort to ensure just that.
The villa itself is an old 150 year old home sprawled over 2.5 acres of land on the fringe of the small village of Calenzano. Recently renovated, preserving the family artefacts, it retains a dated charm and what it looses in terms of being annexed on a residential street rather than the rolling Tuscan countryside,it makes up by being just 15 minutes from Florence,well connected by bus and rail.
Very cosy bedrooms, fully equipped with a steam bath and pool, fruit trees and grill and the warmth and energy of the owner Rolando,reverbates in every moment of one's stay. No stone is left unturned to make one feel at home and even young children are cTered for with family like baby sitters and paraphernalia .
A one week stay that left a gulp in ones throat, being over and a resolve to visit again and relive the nostalgia.
