L'Acetaia is a charming farmland setting and offers amazing views across the valley. Watching the sunrise against the beautiful backdrop of the hills is definitely worth an early rise. The secluded village location offers a perfect retreat whether you want to retire peacefully after a busy day or prefer to be laid back and spend the day relishing its idyllic setting.
The tram station at Villa Costanza is just 10 minutes’ drive. There is frequent train services that will take you into central Florence in 20 minutes. Our Florence Card plus purchase was worth the investment as it covered the tram fare and kids access to attractions. We managed to visit several famous museums and cathedrals over the three days we spent in the historic city.
Other major attractions like Sienna, Val D’Orcia, San Gimignano, Volterra etc. are also at easy reach by car.
The self-contained unit has all the comforts and conveniences that you would require to be ‘at home’. With two full shower rooms and a fully equipped kitchen, getting ready for the day’s outing was always smooth.
The real highlight of our stay was our kind, charming and lovable hosts Julian & Anna. Had it not been for them, we would have been stranded for hours during night when our rented car broke down during our journey from the airport and we couldn’t even get past the emergency helpline’s automated system. Without sharing further details, we can confidently say that anyone who signs up with Julian and Anna are guaranteed to be in safe and knowledgeable hands. Our only regret is that we weren’t able to join them for the olive gathering and pressing as we were pressed for time. The time we spent together with Julian and Anna will remain close to our heart and we look forward to meeting them again.
We stayed with Carlo&Silvana for 4 days and we just loved it. We had a very friendly welcome and we even got a nice bottle of wine and coffee 😊The place was very clean, very nice decor and very comfortable. It’s very close to Pisa and Firenze and I’m sure you will just love it. Thank you Carlo&Silvana for everything and making our first time to Toscana a beautiful experience. x
