Unique property up in the hills. Glad I stayed here. After arrivingin Florence by train, I found a news stand across the street and purchased some bus tickets for 1.50 Euros (A pack of 10 for 14 Euros). Found the stop for bus #7 and was on my way.A scenic 20 minute ride left me at the base of the hotel. The next 50 uphill meters were a struggle, hauling 50 pounds of luggage in the midday heat, but it was worth it. Arrived at a beautiful property in a scenic setting. The staff was very polite and helpful. My room was great with a comfortable bed. The only downside was the small TV that got very few chanels. Breakfast was served at 7:30, and the early bird is rewarded with a great selection, but most food is replenished as guests arrive and some new and tasty treats showed up. I did walk to the nearby town further up the road and had a mixed experience eating at the pasta place on thr right side of town, maybe you will have better luck. Unfortunately my room did not have a view (313), but I would stay here again when I return to Florence.
