I´ll start of with the hosts. What a great couple. So friendly and really accommodating. Made us feel at home from the moment we arrived.
The property itself is amazing. It´s literally up the road from the centre of Florence but you wouldn´t know it. It´s such a tranquil place.The setting and surroundings give you that real Tuscan feel.
Inside, the room we had was ample. The kitchen well equipped and the beds (even the sofa bed) super comfortable and absolutely huge! Everything about this place from the trees, to the swimming pool to the rooms themselves were perfect.
The only thing I would fault is the breakfast. Although there was a array of things to choose from, the pastries and bread didn´t seem fresh.
I will definitely be back to this place and will definitely be recommending to all my friends.
