Beautiful oasis in the hills of Florence
Posted Jul 29, 2013
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.
