The villa is in a beautiful setting, situated on a quiet, olive grove-covered hillside in Scandicci. However, it is very convenient to Florence... only about a 10 minute cab ride. The accommodations are lovely, striking the perfect balance between rustic Tuscan charm and modern convenience (see picture). And the service is outstanding. Overall, the villa exceeded my expectations... I'd go... More

The apartment suites were gorgeous and the setting was beautiful! The guests that stayed here ranged from a six-month old to an 80-year old and everyone... More

The Villa Poggio ai Merli, a brilliant restoration of a renaissance villa, sits on a hill outside of Florence. We spent a marvelous week there in July, and despite the heat in Florence, there was always a cool breeze blowing through our apartment. A very POSH apartment I might add. It was perfect for a family - downstairs living room/kitchen... More
