This villa is a very nice original Tuscany farmhouse, whith amazing wiew over Sesto Fiorentino, we join to have a week here. Nice Pool and a very gently owners, they will at any time help you, if you need some tings. It's a good place to visit the aria and nearby Firenze City. Thanks to Danielle and and the staff.
Our stay at the villa was amazing!! The internet photos do not do it justice. The house is beautiful, big enough so suit a large family. It has every amenity and is decorated superbly. The highlight for us were the incredible views..... You cannot believe that standing atop the hill looking out over the countryside that you are actually so close to Florence. In 10 minutes you are at the train station and in another 10 minutes you are in beautiful Florence. All of our dealings were done smoothly and efficiently and nothing was ever too much trouble. We would recommend this villa highly and hope to return in the not too distant future!!
This Villa is truly magnificent! In order to reach this place you definitely need a car but once you get there, you feel like being in paradise. In the country park overlooking Florence, you live in a typical Italian stone house, it's peaceful and relaxing. Daniele and Massimo, the hosts, are very kindly and warmhearted. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. Especially the bed was so comfortable, we slept like a log. The breakfast is very delicious, with fresh fruits, self-made cake, cold-cuts, lots of cheese, yoghurt and the best omelet. We can not recommend this vila highly enough, it's simply perfect!
I cannot say enough about the owner Daniele: this man does well beyond what you pay for to make your stay perfect: carries the bags, gives a briefing upon arrival (including giving a booklet on the place in your language - he checks the bookings in advance) which includes the best ways to approach Florence (and avoid any tourist-traps) Where do you get service like that these days The place is also gorgeous and a real gem of a find! The pool has a gorgeous view over Florence. You can just see everywhere there is exceptional attention to detail, as there are also several places you can sit and sip your wine in the gardens. Another plus: save parking on-site. There are also sensor lights on the driveway if you arrive late. The driveway is a little windy and stoney, but our very-average sedan rental car handled it no worries. N.B. This place is also a great way to avoid the chaotic downtown Florence city traffic (train station is 10 mins driving away, with free parking + 12 mins journey into the central station)
The Villa is located in the mountains overlooking Firenze. It has the most amazing view! The people who run it are extremely friendly and helpful and give you a run down of how and where to go around the area when you first arrive. The rooms are amazing with everything you need. The property has a pool and plenty of areas to lounge around in the sun. We will definatly be coming back on our next trip to Italy!
Being a group of 10 adults we found the property to be suitable for our
family. Our host Daniele was very generous to shop for us before we
arrived and we had plenty of breakfasts and snacks for the week. Also Daniele made it very easy to find the Villa when he met us at the car rental office at the Florence
Airport. The views were spectacular and the grounds were lovely. Our
weather did not permit swimming but we did spend time outside, almost
every sunset, in the beautiful Gazebo. Mid way through our stay we had a
musical trio entertain us outside. The Gazebo even has a dance floor!
Daniele set up a day with a chef and his partner, lessons and then a
fabulous dinner. We have many wonderful memories to recall for years to
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful Villa, a magnificent estate. Perfect Villa, beautiful surroundings, topped with the most helpful and service minded host I have ever met. If you just want to relax by the pool and enjoy the view or if you want to drive through the countryside and experience Tuscany, this is the place to stay.
Thank you very much Danielle and Massimo!

This is a hidden paradise outside of Florence”
Eleven of us stayed there for a week in August and it was an awesome
experience. The views are incredible and the rooms are clean and well
decorated. The owner, is extremely friendly and attentive to the guests.
We highly recommend this location. Wonderfull !
We booked the whole Villa in August and we are absolutely enthusiastic about the location and the hosts. The whole Villa has been renovated in a perfect manner and you can see that a lot of love and taste has been put into it, while the heritage of this ancient monastery has been fully respected. Typically, you do not find such a marvelous villa for rent, so we are still absolutely impressed that we were able to be there. The villa is situated outside of Florence and Sesto Fiorentino up in the hills. The view is spectacular and there is always a pleasant breeze which allows you to stay outside also on hot summer days and nights. There are some wonderful restaurants close by, which I can highly recommend. If you come from a noisy city, get prepared to enter a quiet paradise just outside of Florence with a wonderful host, Daniele, who gave us a warm welcome with refreshments and snacks and supported us with all necessary information.
This lovingly restored 800-year old former nunnery, is beautiful. The outdoor vistas of the Tuscan hills and of Florence in the distance are breathtaking and can be spied also from the charming stone and wrought iron windows in most of the bedrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed the herb gardens of lavender, sage, thyme, and rosemary, the plum trees, the grove of 2,500 olive trees, and the little farm with a friendly horse, two goats, geese, and the chickens that provided us with fresh eggs. Daniele is the consummate host—attentive, accessible and friendly. Our first day, we had car troubles. Daniele saved the day, driving us to and guiding us through the town supermarket to stock up for the week. We took up his suggestion to order an in-home, chef-prepared meal at the villa that was magnificent. This worked well for our family group of 5 adults, a child and a toddler. There is nothing better than taking in the view of the sun setting over the Tuscan hills and Florence at the villa while sipping local wine and enjoying a spread of prosciutto, cheeses, breads, and olive oil. The villa is lovely. Our week in Tuscany and our stay at the villa was an experience worth repeating; the venue is highly recommended. Thank you, Daniele, for a wonderful, memorable time!
