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:
First the experience with all the people at RentVillas was excellent. Their service was top notch. This was a nice villa with an incredible view of Florence. Check in and check out was simple and straightforward. The villa was clean and handled our group of six quite well.
Enjoyed Most:
The view was the highlight.
Enjoyed Least:
The group found the furniture in the living areas somewhat uncomfortable. Our time in the villa revolved around the dining room and that was very nice. Upholstered furniture was marginal. Beds were OK.
Surrounding Area:
We used the villa as a base. It worked well for that purpose. It was easy to get to a small market for good food.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The villa is on the outskirts of Florence. There is bus transportation easily available. We periodically ally walked to the market for necessities.
Directions:
We used public and private transportation. The villa was close enough to minimize time traveling to things we wanted to do, and far enough from the hustle of the city that it was relaxing.
Check In Out:
All that went very well.

Overall:
It was wonderful.
Enjoyed Most:
The history of the home and the view.
Enjoyed Least:
Not all windows had screens and we were there during mosquito season.
Surrounding Area:
Ease of getting to and from the bus.
Nearby Events or Locales:
La Lastra, but not really a town, more of a bus stop with a bar, alimentare and gas station
Tips or Restaurants:
ZaaZaa's restaurant near the Mercado Centrale was excellent. Bring a wash cloth, there are plenty of towels, but no small cloths.
Directions:
We used a concierge recommended by the owner; we got pick up at the airport and for our trips.
Check In Out:
No, it was seamless.

Overall:
It was more than I hoped -- outstanding.
Enjoyed Most:
The views and the light -- it was stunning. Also, the nights we had a private chef come in and cook -- oh my -- these were life events.
Surrounding Area:
It was very easy to get the bus into Florence so we went into town every day. Also, cab drivers knew the address and so getting a cab home was easy.
Nearby Events or Locales:
La Lastra was within walking distance. I loved the little cafe. I loved that there was an ATM. However, it is misleading to say there is a "grocery store" in La Lastra.
Tips or Restaurants:
Caffe Cibreo (which is close to Santa Croce) was fantastic. When you order your groceries to stock the villa, include wine, beer and other adult beverages. I did not do that but Mario was kind enough to drive me into town to pick up these supplies.
Directions:
Our cab drivers had no difficulty.
Check In Out:
It was simple and easy.
