"Holly's review of Tuscany Villa on a Hill Close to Florence - Vi"
Left on 01/14/2006 for a stay in December 2005 | HollyReviewed Jan 14, 2006Stayed Dec 2005
We loved everything about it. It was the perfect place to spend Christmas with our family. It was very roomy, and the separate apartment in the basement was nice to have for our teenage kids to have a little space of their own.
The location was great with easy access to Florence as well as many other quaint towns. We also appreciated having a staff on hand to help us out. They were very accommodating and helpful. The villa stayed really cozy and warm even with snowy winter weather outside.
Many wonderful small towns are near by with an endless supply of great restaurants and shops. It was nice to be so close to Florence about a 20 min drive and yet still be out in the country.
