Besides being a beautiful property, the staff and all the small details are one of the best things of this great hotel. On the hills around the old city of Florence, this is (if not the best) surely one of the best 5 stars hotel in town. You won’t regret!

Hi: it operates on an as needed basis and was almost always available when we needed it to go from the Villa to the city center. the one time we took it in the evening to go to a restaurant the driver brought us directly there but that may have been because we were the only ones on the van. Going back to the villa The was only one pick up point near a cafe not far from the piazza Signoria
