We had a wonderful time in Firenze! The Villa is lovely, the views are stunning, the pool refreshing, the terraces relaxing! We repeatedly had to pinch ourselves as we sat by the pool that we were overlooking the Duomo wile dining al fresco. We enjoyed the wonderful sit down dinner service and all the help that the personal concierge offered us in organising our transfers, a very interesting private guided tour downtown and a great wine testing in the Chianti.
Villa l’Acacia was just perfect for us, we enjoy the villa’s garden its swimming pool, the wooden deck around the pool and last but not least the great view on Florence.
The interiors are very nice and stylish; almost all rooms have their bathroom, which is very convenient when you are a numerous family as we are.
Everything was clean and we appreciated the Villa was prepared to make us feel special and more than welcome
Something not to miss is the dinners the host organize upon request. We found quite useful the ice-machine as well
Thanks, we will come back for sure
Excellent place fantastic view on Florence not far from the city center (25 minutes by public transport)
We particular enjoy the garden and the pool
We will come back!
My husband and I and 7 of our friends spent two weeks in Villa Acacia and were completely happy with our accommodation. We each had private rooms with our own toilet and shower, yet could enjoy each other's company each morning on the patio enjoying a spectacular view of Florence. The views from the patio, pool area or terraces were breath-taking. An easy ten minute bus ride delivered us to and from the centre of Florence, and further destinations were readily arranged by Andrea, the villa's concierge. We were completely charmed by Andrea and his lovely wife Alida, and their daughter, Anna Maria who prepared a group dinner for us that was beyond scrumptious. Away from the crowds and business of peak tourist season, this was a perfect way to experience the sites of Florence and Tuscany and the peace and quiet we needed to rejuvenate each day. On another note, we were absolutely enchanted with Mario who greeted us on arrival, took us grocery shopping in Florence on our first day, and attended to our needs as required. Without question, we would recommend this gorgeous home away from home to anyone visiting this region.
Exactly as listed. Beautiful grounds. Great views. The best host "ever". The meal prepared by Lorenzo's wife was the best meal I had during our month stay in Italy. Lorenzo is the best host. If a problem arose he took care of it immediately. There were some issues that needed attention, mainly electrical. But I'm sure Lorenzo will be on top of that. He is planning some improvements for the 2016 rental season. Be aware that you will have to shop for everything from toilet paper to salt. The supermarket is quite a long way from the villa so be prepared to take a taxi home.The walk up the hill from the bus stop is steep winding and has no shoulders.We have already recommended this property to friends who will be booking in 2016. I would recommend taking a taxi from the train station as the road from the bus stop is not conducive to dragging luggage up to the villa.
