Beautiful hotel grounds - far from Firenze

Posted Jul 7, 2015 on Hotels
The staff was very helpful. The hotel's ground is beautiful. It gives you a true sense of Tuscany - we woke up with crowing roosters. It is a little far from Firenze. It is a good hotel if you have time to actually stay at the hotel...

Gorgeous hotel, superb value.

Posted Jun 9, 2015
Pros: Gorgeous buildings, gardens and views, authentic Tuscan experience, helpful manager. Pool would be nice after a hot day, though we did not use it.
Cons: Expedia told us to check in at Grassina town square -- this is wrong, just go directly to the hotel. Wifi signal weak in our rooms, ok near office.
Location: Walk along country roads, through a fruit orchard/olive grove, past a 16th century shrine. Town of Grassina has a few restaurants, bakeries, markets.
My daughter and I chose this location for a visit to Florence, as we only had a few days in Tuscany and wanted a taste of the countryside as well as the city. If you're on foot, access to the town (Grassina) is a 35-45 minute bus ride from Florence, then a 1 1/2 km walk uphill from the town square -- easy if you're a good walker, but challenging with luggage! If you're not a good walker and are not renting a car, you might want to take a cab from Florence, which might cost from 30-50 euros, depending on airport vs train station, traffic, and the honesty of the driver! That said, I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It was breathtakingly beautiful, and the manager was very kind and as helpful as he could be with his limited English. The buildings and gardens were immaculate and completely authentic, there were tables and chairs everywhere for outdoor meals or relaxing with a glass of wine, and wonderful views in every direction. If you like luxury travel, the setting, buildings and gardens would live up to your expectations, though you might find the kitchen and furnishings a little simple for your taste. It was perfect for ours. Breakfast fixings were only Melba toast, jam and Nutella, but they also provided coffee, tea, and olive oil, and it's easy to get more supplies in Grassina or Florence. I would love to come back for at least a week, rent a car, and use this place as a home base for day trips to Pisa, Siena, etc.

Incredibly gorgeous "country" location

The 3 nights at this villa hotel were the best of my 2 week vacation to Italy - from Rome to Milan. The owners were wonderfully cordial and helpful. A short walk down the hill gets you to a small city with delicious food and wine and shops. A castle is your neighbor. Walking the rural roads through the hills was delightful. I will return to this location - next time for weeks not days.

place of the peace and romantizm

Posted May 29, 2015 on Hotels
Floransa merkezden 30 dk disarda ve iki otobus sonrasi 10 dk yurume mesafesinde. Ilk gelisiniz ise eger Floransa ana terminalden taksi ile ulasmasi en sagliklisi ki 30 eur taxi ucreti tutmaktadir. Otel yesillikler arasinda havuzu da olan yayla konsepti seklinde dinlenme ve romantizm icin harika. Kaldiginiz oda mutfagi ve salonu da olan koca bir villa seklinde ki dost cevresi ile kalabalik gitmesi de eglenceli olacaktir. Wifi odalarda cekmiyor. En yakin grassina koyu yerlesim yeri 10 dk yurume mesafesindedir. Etrafda yesillik ve huzur var ve bir de gezecek sirin bir tipik italyan koyu. Tek eksikligi merkeze cok da uzak olmasa da ulasim biraz sorun. Yine de tum kriterler baz alindiginda romantizm ve dinlenme acisindan ideal

Soggiorno di relax in un contesto splendido

Posted Nov 4, 2013
Pros: Posizione, comfort delle camere, tranquillità
Ho soggiornato due notti con mio marito ed i miei ragazzi di 11 e 15 anni. Cercavamo un luogo tranquillo, al di fuori dalla città, ma che fosse comodo e ben servito e l'abbiamo trovato. A soli 20 minuti da Firenze e ad un'ora da Siena, è il luogo ideale per riposarsi e come base di appoggio per delle escursioni in giornata a Firenze e nel Chianti. La sistemazione è spaziosissima, con due camere da letto, due bagni, un ampio soggiorno, la cucina. Gli spazi esterni sono ben curati ed essendo un po' in collina, la vista della campagna circostante è fantastica. Insomma, una bella esperienza da ripetere.
