Our family of 5 stayed here for 3 days in the beginning of July. It was great to be away from the hussle/bussle of Florence and the views of the city were inspiring each morning and evening. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted by one of their many hosts who wanted to ensure we could relax and have a refreshing drink...on the house, in their lounge. What a delightful treat! Checking in was a breeze and our rooms were spotless and roomy. That was especially important to the 3 young adults traveling with us. Their pool was refreshing and their staff saved the day for us. We hadn't purchased tickets to La Academia and they were able to secure our entry there at no extra cost!!! THANK YOU! Can't go to Florence without seeing DAVID! We received excellent directions for using the bus, and were able to purchase bus tickets from them as well. They also found a wonderful website for us which listed 2dozen restuarants that served gluten-free pastas!! What service!! We squeezed a visit to the Ufizzi in the morning, grabbed a quick bite and then caught a train to Pisa.....that is where the rip-off began.....4hr wait and 15Euros to climb the Pisa....The Duomo in Florence was only 8Euros, and getting there early in the morning only meant a 20minute wait....better views too......even the gelato servings in Pisa were smaller and more expensive.....oh well, been there, done that. We had great breakfasts at Villa Belvedere, wonderful coffees and fabulous fruits. We would definitely return here and try to stay longer. The tennis court was an artificial turf, not sure I'd play on it and the playground equipment should be removed. It didn't look safe for children. Actually, the walk to this lower area was slippery and needs to be cleaned up. Obviously not a part of the hotel that gets used.
