“Fantastico! It was amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2011

We spend a weekend here to celebrate our wonderful friend's birthday. It was just fabulous! A family run business who were extremely friendly and welcoming. They offered excellent food and service. The family made the weekend super special. Thank you. We will definitely be back.

We spent 2 nights here for a birthday and had the best time ever!
The bedroom was clean, the grounds were stunning and the food was fabulous! The best part though was the family who run it, who were so friendly and warm and always looking our for you (Including Brunello the dog!)
It was easy to get to from Pisa, just a short trip on the train which was great too.
I would strongly recommend Villa Al Piano.

I needed to get away from the hustle of London and ended up at Villa al Piano.

The Villa and its grounds are wonderful. The food is outstanding, it is situated 10 minutes drive from Florence airport and is a great location for exploring Tuscany and coming home each night to a relaxing, friendly and beautiful place.

I read 5 books, ate the mopst delicious food and arrived back in London rested and content.

100% recommendation.

My husband and I stayed at this Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights. Getting to the B and B was quite the headache though. I had communicated with one of the owners prior to our arrival and was told to call the sister once we arrived at the train station and she would pick us up. So, we finally made it to the Lastra a Signa station from Florence and there was no phone to be found near the station. I guess he had assumed we would have a cell phone and I had assumed there would be a pay phone...so much for assumptions. I really should have planned better on that. Anyway, we lugged our bags into town and found an extremely kind shop owner who called the bed and breakfast for us. The owner and her daughter came and picked us up within minutes. Upon arriving, they checked us into the "carriage house" which is located behind the main home and then just left us to ourselves.
The carriage house was great. It had a big bathroom, spacious kitchen, sunken living room, and a nice bedroom. There were windows everywhere and it had been well maintained.
The pool area was great too. We were the only guests there at the time, so it felt very private.
The breakfast was served in the big house. Each morning it was a little different, but it was always delicious!
There were a few negatives. When we checked in, they did not give us any information on the town. We arrived around lunch time and had to make our way around the town on foot trying to find a good lunch spot. It sounds easier than you think. This is a small Italian town and most of the shops close down during that time and many of the restaurants we found were only open for dinner. So, we tried one of the few places we could find that was open and it was awful. It would have been so nice if at check-in they had given us some kind of orientation on the town.
Also, you need to take the train into and out of Florence if at all possible. I had read other reviews about taking the bus and so we decided to try it out too. The bus was a bad idea. It took a really long time to get into Florence. Additionally, the train station is not much further walking distance from the bus stop in Lastra a Signa. So, spare yourself the long journey by bus and instead take the train. If you do want to take the train, you need to plan ahead so you know the schedule and make sure that you get on at the right time...otherwise you will waste time at the Florence train station or miss the last train. It was about a 15-20 minute walk from the B and B to the train station and another 15-20 minute train ride into Florence. So, if you really want to see Florence, you might prefer to just stay in the city. The train station in Lastra a Signa is a stopping point for the train to Pisa. So, it could be a great spot for people wanting to stay outside the city and travel around to other spots.
