Stay at a Tuscan villa close to downtown Florence
Posted Jun 22, 2016 on Hotels
Some people might prefer to stay in the heart of the city and walk around, which is fine, but you end up in a small, old room, noisy and probably expensive for what you get. We did that the first time we were in Florence. For our next stay we wanted a more Tuscan experience, and that's exactly what this B&B delivers.
It's really like staying in your own private villa in the Tuscan hills. The surroundings are beautiful. The building is modern yet traditional and comfortable.
Service is amazing. The owners really go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. Late arrivals, special requests, tips for things to do - nothing was a problem. We felt like staying with friends.
We got a four-bed room, which was two connected rooms. One had a full kitchen, which we did not include in our package (it's a bit extra). The rooms were very comfortable, spacious, with modern high-quality accessories like the radio by our bed.
A/C, fast wifi, minibar, safe in our room, free breakfast with cook-to-order eggs, etc. etc. Everything was wonderful.
It may seem out of the way on a map if you have never been to Florence, but it is really convenient. The bus took 20 minutes to get us to SMN train station downtown. The hotel sells bus tickets and the bus stop is literally outside the hotel. A taxi from Ponte Veccio to the hotel was less than 15 minutes and less than $20.
