We stayed in 3 places during our Italy vacation (Rome, Naples, Florence) and Rustic House was our clear favorite.
The location is very close to town but on a hill overlooking the eastern end of the valley and is comfortably quiet. There is remote-operated gate which maintains privacy and protects your car.
The kitchen is high-end and more fully-equipped than any place I have ever rented. The bedrooms (beds) are spacious and cozy. The A/C maintains extremely well. I would have preferred more indoor seating near the TV, but there are several tables with chairs both inside and outside so we ate each meal in a different location with a different view. Wine and cheese on the terrace overlooking the valley made for an exceptionally relaxing evening.
The hosts/owners live in an attached apartment so there isn't total privacy, but they are a friendly pair and we heard very little from them.
All-in-all, we will return to Florence in the near future and will be hoping to stay in Rustic House again!
Our stay at the Rustic House was very enjoyable . The house is in a rural area outside Florence . There is a bus stop about 1km and the bus takes about 25 minutes to get in to the centre of Florence.Our host Pier Luigi was very helpful and took us in his car the first night to get some provisions. The house was very clean and had all the amenities one would need and lovely outside areas.
