Elena is an excellent hostess. The villa is beautiful; we wish we had more time to relax and enjoy the gardens. The breakfast was excellent (eggs, yogurt, fruit, cereals, pastries, coffee, juice). The room and bathroom was spacious and very clean. The beds were a bit firm for us, but after a long day of walking around Florence, I still slept fine. The wifi worked great. The villa sits on a small hill, so those who don't like a bit of a walk might prefer a different location. Rooms and breakfast area are on the 2nd floor, with about 30 steps to climb. I liked the fact that it was quiet and out of the busy city center. It was easy to get into and back from the city center on the #11 bus; the stop was a 5-minute walk from the villa. There was a few restaurants nearby, about a 10-minute walk. The pizza place that Elena recommended was very good. A McDonald's was just past that (we realized later, but wouldn't have gone there anyway). Area seemed quiet and safe, but we tried not to stay out too late. Overall, it was a delightful place to stay and I would recommend it.
