Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was a one week stay with two adults and one teenager. We were in the ground floor apartment with patio. The accomodation was exactly as described and we were delighted with the layout and decoration. It was great to have the pool in the grounds of the estate. The gardens were a lovely place to relax after a day out in the city. The hosts were extremely helpful and friendly throughout the holiday. We would definitely return here when we visit Florence again.
