Customer Reviews

Overall:
Amazing. We has a wonderful time.
Enjoyed Most:
Location and views.
Enjoyed Least:
There were many bees near the pool.
Surrounding Area:
Its close location to areas of interest. Very nice for driving.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest town had everything we needed. Very nice local people.
Directions:
It's down a very small street. We actually only got lost once getting. Would be tricky to find in the dark for the first time.
Check In Out:
That was seamless.

Overall:
Our group had a wonderful time. We all enjoyed our time at the Villa. Our host was there to meet us and was very welcoming and could not have been more accommodating. We were short 2 fans in the bedrooms and as it was very hot he returned a short time later with 3 brand new fans. He checked on us every day and could not do enough for us. The villa was clean and, if not luxurious, had all the essentials.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was amazing. The pool was lovely to cool off in after a day of sightseeing. The beds were large and comfortable. The chef was great, and the amount of food for one meal fed us again the next night, good value. The outside eating area was lovely with huge pots full of lemon trees laden with fruit. (very Tuscan)
Enjoyed Least:
More pillows for the beds. The bathrooms, although adequate, were not great. The kitchen was a little small but well stocked. The grass needed a mow. The yard was a little unkempt but still charming.
Surrounding Area:
The view from the bedrooms and side yard was just beautiful. During the day you could see the Dome in Florence and at night the lights were a sight to behold. We sat and watched the sunsets from the yard overlooking the pool and it was spectacular. The villa was on a very quiet road so only a small amount of local traffic.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The small village of Capannuccia was within walking distance, but not much there. A nice walk (about 2.5 km) past other villas and wildflowers along the roadside.
Tips or Restaurants:
The chef (from the small restaurant in Capannuccia) was very good. The villa is quite isolated so you do need a car. Our group of 12 had two cars, good for running to supermarket in Grassina. For our sightseeing trips we hired a driver and van from Florence. This worked very well when cost was split between 6 couples. We used the villa as a base and went on sightseeing trips to Florence and surrounding towns. It was a lovely place to come home to at the end of a busy day.
Directions:
We had no trouble as we had a driver who picked us up at Florence train station. He knew the area and took us straight to the villa. Our friends with a car and GPS had a bit of trouble finding it.
Check In Out:
Our host was excellent even though he was not fluent in English (which made the experience all the more exotic,) and we had even less Italian. The check in/out was very smooth, we had no trouble making ourselves understood.

Overall:
The best vacation of our lives.
Enjoyed Most:
It is spacious, beautiful
Enjoyed Least:
There is no air conditioning and it does get quite hot in the summer. However, the windows open at night with the breezes were tolerable.
Surrounding Area:
The quaint town had a wonderful bakery, people were friendly, and the local grocery store even stayed open until 8:00 pm.
Tips or Restaurants:
Cappenelli bakery had a fantastic fruit tarte. The local bus could get you to Florence.Make absolutely sure if you are depending on computers or electrical things you get the correct convertor. Some will not do a laptop but will charge your phone or camera.
Check In Out:
Paolo doesn't speak much English, but his daughter helps. It takes at least an hour for check-in, since he needs to teach you the gas, and the kitchen useage. They also stop by daily to see if you need help.
