A magical house

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful inside and out. Very clean, well maintained, and with gorgeous furnishings. Sandra, the owner, provides excellent customer service. Spectacular view of Florence from the terrace. We walked into Florence several times. There is a great restaurant just down the street from the house. Sandra's daughter, Elena, is a personal chef-in-training, and cooked for us a typical Tuscan Sunday dinner, using fresh local ingredients. Delicious! Ping-pong table outside was well-used by our children. Just delightful in every way!

An amazing house at an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sandra's house with seven adults. The house is a big, monumental house with lots of space, including a huge living room, a big kitchen and three big bedrooms. The house is very comfortable. The location is perfect: overlooking the city of Florence from a hill and set in a beautiful, big garden. Although on a hill, the city center can still be reached by foot in over half an hour.

Sandra is extremely friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed staying there and recommend it to anyone looking for an unforgettable holiday in Florence.

Spätsommerausflug nach Florenz

  • 5 of 5

Wir, 3 Personen Familie (27-66) haben in diesem Haus 10 Tage im September 2017 verbracht und waren sehr zufrieden. Sehr gute Ausstattung und sehr nette Besitzer. Schönes Ausblick auf die Stadt und die Umgebung.

Ein eventuelles Problem für größere Gruppe könnte die Einfahrt sein. Wären wir, wie eigentlich geplant, zu viert gekommen, hätten wir ein größeres Auto nehmen müssen und damit höchstwahrscheinlich draußen parken müssen.

Ansonsten können wir das Haus 100% weiterempfehlen.
