About The Experience

This villa overlooks the Tuscan countryside and offers beautiful views, particularly from the rooftop terrace. It’s within walking distance of a small village with a grocery store, café, pizzeria, and gas station. Best of all, it is a short bus ride (5-minute walk to the bus stop) to both Florence and Fiesole!

Location Description
The villa is located 100 meters from a restaurant and 200 meters from the village of La Lastra where there is a grocery store, café, post office, and gas station. The charming town of Fiesole is 3km away, and Florence, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, is only 4km away. See the Duomo, the Academy Gallery, and Palazzo Vecchio firsthand, then go shopping in one of the open-air or flea markets filled with antiques and other goods. For more high-end shopping, be sure to visit Via dei Tornabuoni. Don’t forget to marvel at the statue of Davide or tour the wonders of the Uffizi Gallery either! A train station in Florence can connect you to other Tuscan cities, such as Siena or Pisa, which also prove to be convenient and enjoyable day trips away from your villa.

Nearby Attractions: La Lastra (grocery store, café, post office, gas station), Florence (historical monuments, shops, restaurants), Ugolino Golf Club.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Excellent!
Enjoyed Most:
Charming, beautiful property, spacious. Good bedroom spaces with A/C! Pool for kids and the amazing view! Villa was very clean which was a huge plus. Kitchen small but very functional, good size refrigerator. Good washer and dryer! Great outside spaces, well maintained. Overall charming and excellent.
Enjoyed Least:
Upholstered furniture needs to be refreshed. Kitchen needs new ice cube trays and bigger American coffee pot.
Surrounding Area:
Easy to get into Florence. Bus stop 25 just down the hill. Hotel villa le Rondini is up the hill from villa. The bus stop can drop you off above the villa, but it is a walk uphill from villa. Beautiful property. We had a dinner the night of arrival and it was a wonderful experience for our family. We didn't get there till after 10 pm but they were OK with that.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The small town at the end of road wasn't much and we didn't use it. Discovered NYU has a beautiful campus near the villa. Wish we had had time to explore it.
Tips or Restaurants:
Wonderful outside dining at the Hotel villa le Rondini. 4 Leoni in Florence. Shopped at Eataly at the end of the day after a tour to have a light supper at the villa.
Directions:
Used a GPS but it was hard to find. Arriving late didn't help.
Check In Out:
Mario greeted us on arrival and was gracious enough considering we didn't arrive till 9. He booked us a table at villa Rondini since we did not have time to shop. We did pick up milk, bread, cheese, meats, yogurt for breakfast at one of the motor stops coming up from Rome. Mario is a very nice and made us feel welcomed. He was prompt on check out. He is a real gentleman!

La Lastra. You could walk.
Tips or Restaurants:

Show All 30 Reviews

Overall:
My family and friends had a wonderful time and enjoyed the villa and its proximity to Florence and all Florence has to offer! While the kitchen was small, it was well stocked with what was needed to cook and eat many of our meals there.
Enjoyed Most:
The view and the feeling of being away from the city (except for traffic noise) and the hustle and bustle.
Enjoyed Least:
One bedroom was without screens on the windows and mosquitoes invaded that room and were also present throughout the house.
Surrounding Area:
The grounds were very well kept and we were able to obtain everything we needed in the small village close by. Transportation was easy to navigate so that we did not need a car.
Nearby Events or Locales:
La Lastra was within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
I was glad I brought my pillow. Citronella bracelets were helpful and we found those at the pharmacy in Florence. We had to obtain toilet paper, soap, detergent for the kitchen, salt, pepper, etc.
Directions:
We had no problem as the cab drivers all found it without difficulty since we had great information from the owner.
Check In Out:
We were concerned about the additional cost for electricity. It was nice to find out that it was only for when the air conditioner(s) were used and that each was seperately monitored.
