If you want to stay in an artistic grand old home and have the convenience of Florence only 8km away this is the perfect place. A couple of quaint little restaurants close by and a very country feel. We loved the view over Florence and the superb sunsets. We also very much loved our time here and hope to return and stay here again. Every thing was very easy with Riccardo and he was always very helpful. We had some urgent documents which needed to be printed one day and he came straight over to help us. Highly recommend staying here.

Riccardo went out of his way to help us out - picking us up from the airport, dropping us back in to town, offering to provide bikes and suggesting places for us to eat. The property itself is really interesting, with the view stealing the show! Good, large space and excellent hosts!

Response from Riccardo:
Grete e la sua famiglia sono stati gentilissimi, precisi e attenti, hanno lasciato la mia casa perfettamente pulita e in ordine. Inoltre abbiamo avuto momenti di conversazione, condivisione di esperienze, scoprendoanche la loro passione per il giardinaggio, ci hanno lasciato indicazioni su come e dove trasferire una catalpa, albero tropicale nato spontaneamente nel nostro giardino, indicazioni che seguiremo precisamente in autunno. Spero ci sia un'altra occasione di rincontrarli

Had the most amazing stay with in Florence. Riccardo and Allessandra were great hosts and the place was above and beyond our expectations. The house is a fantastic place to stay up on the hills overlooking the city to relax, but still so close and convenient to access the city and all kinds of trips through Tuscany, can't wait to come back.

Inoltre erano molto comunicativi, divertenti nel parlare e stare insieme, abbiamo fatto un aperitivo al tramonto che è stato piacevolissimo, affettuoso, veramente delizioso. Spero ci siano occasioni in futuro di rincontrarsi
