A little gem in FlorencePosted Oct 24, 2013
Pros: It is a very small (10 rooms) boutique hotel which is close enough to the city to be convenient but far enough away to be private and quiet.
Cons: There is not a single thing that I can recommend to be improved. Don't fix what isn't broken!
My husband and I spent 5 nights here. It was absolutely lovely. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable. The owners could not have been more attentive. The grounds are impeccable. The breakfast buffet was very nice and we even had a small dinner here a couple of nights when we were too tired to go out. The food was wonderful and tasted like it was homemade - which it was. The location is only a few minutes by car to all the sightseeing locations.

Beautiful oasis in the hills of FlorencePosted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: The yellow cheerful fabrics, the lavender gardens, the open airy breakfast area, the caring owners.
Cons: The wifi reception
Location: The city center of Florence is very close. A taxi ride is about 15 euros.
This charming villa just outside of Florence (but very close to the city) was just the place we needed after staying right in the center of Rome. The owners were very accommodating and kind. The villa has seven rooms, with two additional rooms or suites in another building. The breakfast area is bright and open to the outside by wide patio doors. The lavender gardens fill the air with their aroma, especially when walking down the stairs to the beautiful pool. The large sitting room at the villa is sunny and inviting. Our room was quite comfortable, with a spacious bathroom and patio doors to the outside garden. I would not recommend walking on the road to the villa, as cars zoom past on this narrow winding road at great speeds. There is a nearby restaurant called Bibe which has a pretty outdoor terrace and excellent food. The restaurant owners will drive you back and forth to the villa.

Relaxing Countryside Florence HotelPosted Jul 16, 2013
This hotel is beautifully set in the hills of Florence. The grounds, and surroundings were so inviting with its variety of aromatic flowers and relaxing atmosphere. We enjoyed sitting at the nice pool and the staff was very helpful. They helped us find a restaurant for dinner-- and it was fabulous. This spot was the perfect, quiet getaway.

Pros: Like being a special guest at a country estate
It is well worth the travel time from the city for a visit to this "villa."

Beautiful Hotel if you have a carPosted May 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
This was a beautiful setting for a hotel however you definitely need to have a car as a taxi to and from the city ranged between €10-15 each way. We did have a few issues with our original room but we moved to a suite when the issues couldn't be rectified (no hot water & toilet issues) which was great. Lorenzo was extremely helpful and an asset to the hotel.

The best place near FlorencePosted Jun 16, 2010
We enjoyed our stay at this boutique hotel. We were travelling by car and did have some difficulty finding it even with the help of a GPS and were a bit nervous of of the drive on the narrow roads in this part of the country.It is an ideal location to stay for exploring Florence by leaving your own car at the hotel and taking a 12 Euro 20 minute taxi ride into central Florence as parking in town is almost impossible. Complimentary WiFi was another plus. The staff were very helpful with arranging taxi and transport to nearby Restaurants and provide light meals if required. The room we had was spacious and well up to 5 * rating . It was very relaxing to come back to the quiet atmosphere of this hotel; after a hectic day in Florence. We would come back again .
