Excellent apartment , amazing views & gracious host.

5 of 5
Lucia is the perfect host. The apartment is very clean, tidy and well furnished with every amenity that you could wish for. The rooms are spacious and very quiet but the star of the show is your own private roof terrace which has simply one of the best views of this splendid city. It is located just outside of the main tourist sector which is a bonus as it is less busy with more of a natural feel to the neighbourhood with really good eateries, a supermarket and excellent bakery & gelato shops. It is about 10 minutes walk directly to the central area and with many route options along the tiny streets you will find many shops, cafes etc. All of the main reasons for visiting Florence are close by.

Exceptional cottage with great pool in a stunning area of Tuscany

5 of 5
We were very impressed from the outset with this sympathetically converted hamlet. The property itself, The Hammock was exactly the standard as show in the photos so were not disappointed. The view and the pool exceeded our expectations and ticked all members of families boxes including the teenagers. We mixed the days with relaxing by the pool and visiting the local hill top towns all which had their own character. I would definitely consider returning and would highly recommend the property. Claudia, the owner and Fabio were very attentive throughout the booking and greeting process. Thank you for letting us share in your wee piece of paradise.
