We had the delightful opportunity to stay in this beautiful villa during our October visit to Italy. Since we had visited Florence many times, we were looking for a property outside of the city where we could enjoy the local culture, restaurants, and country sites. We were greeted by Mirella,the owner, who is a warm and charming Florentine. She is very helpful with local restaurants, places of interests, and history. She and her daughter live on the property and are always available. The villa is located above the town of Sesto Fiorentino, where we have family. We had a rental car which is important for this property since it is a good walk from the city center. The villa has ample parking; so there is no problem with the car. The setting of the villa is beautiful and set among the olive trees. The views looking towards Florence and the valley are beautiful both day and night. The villa has been restored to high standards and the public areas are very tranquil and comfortable. There are a number of lovely gardens surrounding the villa where you can spend restful days reading or napping. The bedrooms all had ensuite bathrooms and were quite large with comfortable mattresses and lighting.
Sesto Fiorentino is connected to Florence via train and is a quick ride into the main train station. The town location is right off the motorway; so it is easy to do day trips
to other areas of Tuscany.
We look forward to returning to Mirella's beautiful villa.
