Overall:
The property was a very good home base for exploring the surrounding areas in Tuscany.
Enjoyed Most:
The outside covered terrace was delightful. The view was spectacular. Unfortunately the weather limited our outside time. Walking distance to the grocery store and some restaurants. The property was a short drive to St. Ellera where we got the train to Florence.
Enjoyed Least:
The bathroom in the second bedroom was too small. The other couple had to use the attached apartment which turned out to be fine. The decorations tended towards 'bad' antique shop, although it was comfortable. Wired internet availability, which was described in the description of the property, was NOT available. Editor's Note: The week of May 21-28, 2015 there were issues with the internet connection; these have since been resolved and internet access continues to be available. June, 2015
Surrounding Area:
Donnini itself was delightful. It was small and quaint. Florence and Tuscany lived up to our expectations. Beautiful medieval towns. Great art, and beautiful countryside.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Besides Donnini, St. Ellera was 4 km away (not walkable).
Tips or Restaurants:
The property was well equipped. The local grocery store had more than you'd expect for it's small size and had all that we needed.
Directions:
We did use a GPS. We were told to call the key holder an hour before we arrived. He met us in the center of town as he promised. We could not have found the property without his help.
Check In Out:
No problems on either end.
