We stayed at this lovely Villa in Florence hills for three weeks. The location is gorgeous. The staff met us on arrival, helped with our luggage, took us for a short tour of the estate and cellar, made restaurant reservations for us and promised to check on us periodically, which they did. They were helpful and gracious hosts and genuinely nice people.

It is lovely staying out of the city, especially if you were exploring the countryside. I highly recommend this place if anyone is interested in staying in the Florence area. Once again thank you Enrico and next time we are in the area we will definitely stay in your place again.

The apartment in the Villa of Enrico is very large and clean and has every comfort you have at home. He gave us many tips for places and restaurants. The swimming pool was very nice nice to cool down after sunbathing. The garden spoiled us with fresh fruits and it was nice to eat in the terrace.
