We had a wonderful stay in this quiet and cozy appartment. It was very clean with a small but well equipped kitchen and a big bathroom. The bedroom had a fan to keep it nice and cool at night and also to keep mosquitos away. Monica is a very friendly and helpful Host and she gave many recommendations about where to go and what to do in the area! Highly recommended if you want to get away but still be within short distance of Firenze.

We had a lovely stay at Monica's place. The house was as charming as on the pictures with a stunning view. Even thou the place itself is not isolated, it was a quiet, relaxing stay. Very convinient if you want to visit Florence and surroundings, it's a 8 minutes drive from "autostrada". Monica is such a lovely host! She gave us some great tipps what to do and where to eat that we really liked. We would really recommend this little house and Monica as a host 3
