Description

Le logement

The house sits in a garden of olive trees and cypresses in the hills surrounding Florence and from May to October you can enjoy all fresco dining in the terrace overlooking this beautiful panorama. This stunning location allows you to visit the busy city centre and its art treasures and twenty minutes later retreat to this peaceful garden to enjoy the pool amongst the olive trees.

Accès des voyageurs

In the 1970s the house underwent a complete restructuring and is now a totally independent and charming house with its own entrance, terrace, garden and pool. Five years ago it underwent another complete refurbishing. It has central heating, air conditioning, Wifi and satellite TV connection. The house itself is on two levels. On the first floor there is a living room, 2 bedrooms with a double bed each and a bathroom with a shower. Downstairs, a big kitchen with a table and six chairs can double as a dining room. There is also a bedroom and a bathroom with a bath tub as well as a separate laundry space. It sleeps six adults comfortably. A children's cot and high chair can be added on request. Outside a terrace will welcome you with a table and chairs for six. In the garden, the pool and sun deck amongst olive trees is equipped with umbrella and lounge chairs.
In both cases, the space is private to the house but the garden is shared with my aunt who lives in the house next door.

Le quartier

La Piazzetta was part of a magnificent villa built in the second half of the XVII century in the hills between Florence and Fiesole. It sits in a small hilltop along few surrounding house. There are shops about 700m from the house and the bus stop is 500m from our doorstep.

Transports

You can park your car in our driveway or if you have more than one car, in the piazzetta in front of the house.
The city centre (Piazza della Libertà - where the pedestrian restricted traffic area starts) is 15 minutes from the house (6.4 km) by car. If you do so, we recommend you use the public parking spaces. Alternatively you can jump on bus nr 25. The bus stop is about 500 meters from the house itself.
Buses run throughout the day and until about 9.30 in the evening. For full bus schedules (EMAIL HIDDEN) A taxi fare (for 4) to town will cost you on average 15 euro.
The main train station (Santa Maria Novella) is 5.6 Km from the house (also reachable with bus nr 25) and airport (Firenze Peretola) is 15 minutes away by car (8.7 km)

Autres remarques

The house is cleaned once during your stay - usually in midweek. There is a 50 euro fee that is requested. Please indicate if you have any special needs in this regard.
We welcome children but please note that there is no fence in the pool and the garden is steep. Therefore we ask that children be accompanied at all times by an adult.

Maison très bien située dans les hauteurs de Florence - à 15' du centre historique en voiture. Déco globalement très agréable. Accueil très sympatique et efficace de Rosealba qui gère la maison pour les propriétaire. Piscine fantastique (environ 6mX12,5)m avec vue sur Florence. Un peu trop de moustiques autours de la maison cette année - parfois pénible. très bon séjour au global.

This place is absolutely fantastic. We had good communications with Fabrizia during the booking process, and with Rosalba, the lovely housekeeper/caretaker before, during and after our stay. The villa is very well equipped and maintained and the views over Florence and the surrounding countryside are stunning. Our flight landed quite early in the morning and Rosalba was very helpful in arranging for us to check in early. We got the bus down into Florence mostly and a taxi back. It is about a 10/15 minute walk to the bus stop from the house, but it is downhill on the way there. The buses run approximately 3 times an hour. If you don't have a bus ticket, you can buy one on the bus, although that is more expensive, or you can carry on walking into La Lastra and buy some at the local shop. If you do that, you can have a beer while you wait for the bus :) The pool is lovely and was well used during our visit. There is an underground bunker by the pool which houses a toilet, a shower (although we couldn't see how it would work as there wasn't a shower head!) and a fridge. During our stay, unfortunately the fridge wasn't working. However, Rosalba and Fabrizia did their utmost to get it repaired or replaced during our stay, but that wasn't possible. It didn't matter though, we froze bottles of water and took them down and put them in the sink to keep our beers cold. There are a few pool toys by the pool, which I assume have been left by previous guests, although our favourite was a lilo chair which we bought on Amazon and took with us. This enabled us to float round the pool with a drink and book in hand - bliss.

This place is an absolute gem! The view over Florence is amazing both in the day time and at night time. The pool area and terrace is newly renovated and modernized and has beautiful modern pool furniture. The pool is actually quite big and very privat and relaxing. The antique house itself is stylishly furnitured. The kitchen is downstairs, fully equiped and exactly as in the pictures. Communication with both Rosalba, who warmly took care of our check in and Fabrizia was easy and fast. Our three kids loved the pool and its suroundings. WiFi was working but according to our teenagers it was slow. I cannot give any comments on public transportation because we had a rental car, which we found very convenient since the closest supermarket is not in walkingdistance as far as we could tell. We would definitely recommend this lovely house at this very special location and would love to stay there again some day.

This is an exceptional place to stay! A fabulous apartment in a beautiful villa on a very quiet cul-de-sac in the hills overlooking Florence. To say the description is accurate is something of an understatement as the setting and views exceeded our expectations. Also the apartment itself is furnished comfortably and very attractively and carefully designed to a very high standard. In addition to the wonderful apartment we also really appreciated the very helpful and thoughtful service we received from Rosalba, who really couldn't have been more helpful, particularly arranging taxis for us on the day we were leaving. This was really very helpful! The terrace by the house has spectacular views over Florence and now also has a fantastic new elevated deck giving an even better viewing point. The pool was great, as was the new larger poolside patio area just newly completed with its excellent loungers. These are really good improvements on what must have already been very good facilities. Having a local mobile phone was a useful benefit for us for keeping touch with Rosalba and getting taxis. We were also very grateful for the help we got with our home shopping order on the day we arrived, both in unloading the shopping and liaising with the driver for us. We used the 25/25A bus to get in and out of Florence - get on at Bolognese Vecchio 06 by the traffic lights. Coming back stay on the bus longer and get off at Bolognese 21 and walk down the hill to the house's road, rather than getting off at La Lastra. The ATAF app is really useful for using the public transport network in Florence. We bought Carta Agile from the S. M. Novella station when we arrived by train (go to Window 8 in the station entrance hall) which seem good value and are easy to use. We and our 2 friends spent a fantastic week in this idyllic spot and would highly recommend it. By the way - we used the wi-fi and food lift successfully all week!

The property was as described. The views overlooking Florence were amazing. Met by a lovely lady who showed us the property and was always on call to answer any questions that we had. The pool was lovely and was great to use after a busy day sightseeing in Florence. Getting into Florence was easy via the bus, getting back was slightly harder because the drop off bus stop was a little further down the hill. However taxi's were always easy to find to get home.

Thank you! I stayed here with my family in August 2015 for a week. I was greeted by Rosalba, the house keeper, who was very charismatic and welcoming, she showed me around and got me settled in. The view from the house is absolutely incredible, you can see the whole of Florence, its wonderful if you're lounging by the pool or having dinner at the table outside. I think maybe I misunderstood the listing slightly, but in the pictures it looks like to kitchen looks out onto the table outside, but that window is actually from a bedroom and the kitchen is downstairs, it's not a problem, but something to be aware of when booking as you will have to bring your food from downstairs up to the garden, if you choose to eat there like we did. There is a food lift, but we didn't manage to get it working. There is two bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs in the basement, which doesn't have much natural light. Apart from that the house was great. During the lead up to our trip, the owner, Fabrizia, was extremely helpful and informative in terms of any questions we had. Once again, thank you, we had a great stay.
