Customer Reviews

Overall:
We stayed there for a summer in 2009 it was a wonderful experience then and again this visit. We know the rhythm of the village so enjoy all it has to offer
Enjoyed Most:
The view and the separate apartment.
Enjoyed Least:
They could replace some of the furniture in the living room as it is the same as in 2009 and it has not worn well (arm chairs in particular).
Surrounding Area:
There was an olive oil festive happening in the local village. The village has everything you need, butcher, restaurant, coop, cafe etc. Easy 25 min train ride to Florence.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Sant'Allero - 7 minute drive to the train station
Tips or Restaurants:
I would use/take advantage of all of half a dozen businesses in the town. Other than that we went into Florence
Check In Out:
Keep in mind that heating is charged according to consumption. We used it sparingly during our week and were charged 120 Euros on check-out, for reference. Note also that heating is only allowed between November 1 and April 1, by law.

Joy, November

Overall:
We had a wonderful time.
Enjoyed Most:
We were in a small village but had all the amenities we needed, grocery store, pharmacy, bakery, restaurant, coffee shop, pub and more. Having a private swimming pool was fantastic after a day of touring. Access to a computer and printer at the property was handy for flight check in and documents. Kitchen facilities were great and the large covered deck was awesome for dinners and morning cappuccinos from the espresso maker provided.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing!
Surrounding Area:
We were within walking distance of amenities. The surrounding area was beautiful with fantastic scenery, wineries, restaurants, villages and train access to Florence. We felt safe to walk anywhere day or night in the village and the people we met were warm and friendly.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The villa is in the hill town of Donnini and we could walk easily to everything we needed.
Tips or Restaurants:
Restaurants are good but one of our friends is a great chef and we ate most of our great meals in the villa but the one we ate out were great. Leave days to enjoy a rest at the villa and take in the village and surrounding area.
Directions:
Getting in and out of Florence is crazy. Leave a lot of time for returning a rental car at the airport the traffic is nuts and the access road is hard to find and poorly marked. We stayed our last night in a hotel close to the airport just for this reason and returned the cars the night before our flight and shuttled to the airport. If we had not done that we probably would have missed our flight.. Definitely take a GPS or rent a car with one.
Check In Out:
Very easy, great people.

Ray, September
