a good option

We made a last minute decision to add Firenze to our itinerary after hiking in Cinque Terre so we needed room for four adults with little advance notice, and this worked well, with two well-cleaned connected rooms at a reasonable price, with a small staircase down to the second one. A/C and refrigerators all worked well. It is a small place, and the owners aren't on location, so we had to text when we were nearby and be met. It was a bit difficult to find in a suburb of Florence, and parking almost was a problem. but we were quite close to a bus stop to catch the bus into Florence. Just make sure to find out where to catch it back, and what the schedule is. We were really lucky in that we saw the bus, and could run to follow it to its stop for the return trip, different from where we got off at the train station in Florence. We learned that we were lucky, as it had been 50 minutes since the last one. It was a sunday, so buses may have been slower. It would be better to be a bit closer, but we avoided getting lost trying to navigate into florence, and also finding and paying for parking, and that is worth a lot.
