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:
We had a great experience and recommend this villa for any with a family or could use a pool. The view was extraordinary.
Enjoyed Most:
The view, the pool, the spaciousness.
Enjoyed Least:
A little off the beaten path, not close restaurants or a super market.
Surrounding Area:
We love Tuscany and have been there many times -- museums, food, service, history.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We were in a very small town called La Lastra and could cab to Fiesole. We could bus and/or cab to Florence easily.
Tips or Restaurants:
We would suggest arranging with the owner's manager to go to a supermarket for the week's groceries. We ate in several restaurants in Florence using guide books as well as previous experience.

Overall:
Le Terazze is beautiful! It fit our purposes perfectly. We had 9 family members staying there and held a small wedding ceremony in the yard. The garden and views are fabulous and the space of the villa works well for everyone to spread out. The antiques and well-appointed furnishings made the environment warm and cozy.
Enjoyed Most:
We had the pleasure of enjoying a fabulous meal prepared for us and served in the villa dining room. Alida and her husband, Andrea, created an experience we will not soon forget. The food was outstanding and the service/setting was fabulous. I highly recommend this for anyone seeking a memorable and delightful dining experience. They took care of everything! Thank you to Alida and Andrea for the wonderful meal and experience.
Enjoyed Least:
Communication was needed between our family members regarding when each shower was being used. If a shower was being used, water pressure and temperature was lacking for other showers in use. Taking turns became important.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The location of the villa is very convenient. It is about 15 minutes from Florence by bus. We utilized this method of getting to and from, and it worked perfectly. It is only a short walk to the Tabacchi to purchase your bus tickets and the pick-up stop is a short walk back to the fork in the road. The last stop in Florence (bus 25) is at Museo di San Marco, very convenient. Returning requires an uphill walk unless you stay on the bus and get off at a stop just above the villa....a longer ride on the bus, but it does make the walk a bit easier if you are not a fan of the uphill venture. Another option is to call a taxi...this too was very easy and not expensive. The taxis typically arrived within 5 to 10 minutes of our call.
Check In Out:
Lorenzo was helpful and kind. He met us for check-in promptly and was thorough in explaining everything we needed to know about the accommodations. The day before check out, Lorenzo sent an email and was again, prompt and thorough. He was friendly and spoke English well. Thank you, Lorenzo, for sharing this fabulous home with us!

Overall:
Wonderful.
Enjoyed Most:
Location and view, Lorenzo the owner was great, and having dinner cooked one night by Luisella is a must do.
Surrounding Area:
The small deli market was great with great owners--brothers. The men liked to go hang out there for a glass of wine and a chat.
Nearby Events or Locales:
La Lastra...very close
Tips or Restaurants:
Bug spray. Recommend the little place in La Lastra--the owners, two brothers, were great.
Directions:
Easy to follow and get to property.
Check In Out:
Lorenzo worked with us on the arrival and departure process.
