La Paggeria had a real rustic charm, tucked away in the Tuscan hills north of Florence. We were made to feel very welcome by Paolo, Antonella and Eduardo.
The breakfasts were excellent and set us up for the day, which was normally spent visiting the many sites, not just in Florence but also in Pisa, Sienna, Lucca, San Gimignano and Volterra, all easily accessible, although all routes passed through Florence so, initially, quite a challenge.
There was a bus service down to Florence (although the last bus back up to Montorsoli during the week was at around 8.15pm so not great for a night out in Florence).
For evening meals, Antonella and Paolo were happy to cook, if required, and we enjoyed their hospitality and good cooking on a couple of evenings. Sitting on the patio after dinner looking at the lights down in Florence and the stars above was magnificent. There was also a restaurant in Montorsoli - La Terrasse but also check out Zocchi in Pratolino, about 10 mins drive up the hill from Montorsoli.
For the shoppers, there's also a large McArthur Glen outlet village in Barberino di Mugello, about 45 mins drive to the north towards Bologna.
