We had a lovely week in Italy and loved this quirky apartment, which is packed full of art and character. The old building and surrounding gardens are beautiful and the apartment is comfortable and has stunning views over Florence which you will miss when you leave. The apartment is a great base for exploring Tuscany and Florence and Siena are both close by and easy to get to. Riccardo and Alessandra were very kind and thoughtful hosts. (Only downside - the local resident mosquitos are brutal! Come prepared with lots of repellant! Or pop in to the very helpful local pharmacy at the bottom of the hill, on your way past and you'll be fine :-)

Riccardo and Alessandra are welcoming, helpful and incredibly talented hosts as evidenced by the wonderful art work throughout the apartment - Alessandra's textiles and Riccardo's ceramics and metal work are truly breathtaking. The apartment itself is entirely self contained, very private, as is the garden with panoramic views of Florence! It's a fantastic size, with beautiful decor and every piece of furniture thoughtfully chosen. It's worth mentioning that a coop supermarket is a very close with a great fruit and veg section, I implore you to try the peaches! Florence is a short drive away, look for the blue parking spaces on the right of the river as you drive towards the city. Would I recommend this apartment? In a heartbeat. It's the best place we've stayed in.

The villa is a paradise. The view of the Florence Valley from a fantastic artistic home cannot be described in words. Everything is second to none. Alessandra and Ricardo will be in our hearts for ever.

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.
