We loved our stay in the beautiful Mariasole Villa !!!

just a few words to tell you that, as you told me, we loved our stay in the beautiful Villa Pandolfini 1 !!! It is a great place and the owners were charmant with us. We hope that we will be able to go there once more to spend more time. Thank you for making our reservation possible

A very good stay and had a good weather too

Anyway, we had, once more, a very good stay and had a good weather too. As usual, Mr. and Mrs Brogi were very kind and I had special thanks for them as I had some health problems when we arrived there and they help me to see a doctor and got the necessary medecine. My parents were very pleased and enjoyed, of course, the quiet of the house and the beautiful decoration inside and the surroundings too. We visit Firenze quickly, Pisa and Siena too, so they had a view of 3 different Tuscany Cities. We wish you a wonderful day in Tuscany we love very much. Best regards from Jean-Claude, my parents and me to both of you. Thanks to send our regards to Mr. and Mrs Brogi too.

Villa Padolfini was a real highlight of our three-week visit to Italy!

Our week at Villa Pandolfini 1 was a real highlight of our three-week visit to Italy! Our children joined us for the week. My criteria for selecting Villa Pandolfini 1 - a sense of age and history, convenient to Firenze but located in a community with its own identity - were more than adequately met. My spouse and son took a cooking lesson at the villa one day while I drove our daughter and her boyfriend through the Chianti district, and they finally learning the proper way to fry eggplant as well as how to prepare gnocchi and other delights: how convenient to have the lessons offered right at the villa. All staff members were extremely helpful and Sharmilas children were an absolute delight - our (young adult) children had a great time playing with them in the pool! Being present during "World Cup Fever" was an added bonus. It was a restful and thoroughly enjoyable stay and we very much hope to return one day.

Villa Pandolfina was "merveilleux"!

We had a wonderful time in Italy and our stay at the Villa Pandolfini 1 was "merveilleux"! We are sorry we did not have more time there especially to enjoy the town La Signa itself. We loved the villa and its historically grand setting. The beautifully well kept garden, for an avid gardener like me, was a special treat and just so relaxing to have as our surrounding as well as the olive tree pathway to the pool was so fitting for this Tuscan villa. Elizabeth, also thank you for all your help with providing phone numbers so I could cancel my stolen credit cards and receive my new one. Your patience with all the back and forth calls were very much appreciated. We would love to come back and stay longer next time! We have enclosed some pictures of the villa while we were there. Thank you for a wonderful stay. Ciao!

Staying here is like staying with family

Memories of The Villa Pandolfini 1i: Staying here is like staying with family, in this case the Brogi family of two generations. Whatever our needs [as it turned out we had many of them] the Brogis were there to assist us. The villa itself is in a castle built in the 14th century and is both spacious and beautiful inside and outside. My wife is a gourmet cook and enjoyed taking a cooking class which prepared dinner for the evening meal which I attended. The food was delicious and the entire evening wonderful. We even went on a wine tasting tour with the class the next day to Sienna. The location was perfect, only minutes by car to the train station [Florence 15 minutes], the Autostradas closeby. A big bonus were the many fine restaurants nearby by car that equalled the finest in Italy. Our two weeks at the Villa went quickly and we were sorry to leave even though we were off to the Amalfi coast . Tips: Be sure to have a cell phone that works in Italy before you get there; if driving, use the credit card payment booths to avoid long lines; use the train to Florence to avoid the parking problem; don not rely on a navigation system, they don not work well in Italy as I unfortunately found out; don not rent an automatic car, I turned mine in for a shift; have good maps. All in all, you will be in "good hands" with the Brogi family!

we will eagerly contact you again

I am happy to write about our stay at theVilla Pandolfini 1 from April 21-28. The general comment is that we were delighted with the whole experience. Our apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable, and just right for us. The pictures we saw in advance did not mislead us about anything!! All our dealings with your office were easy and efficient. The meal cooked by chef Lisa was fabulous!! Ms Tosca was kind and helpful and delightful. She directed us to her grocer, the market, and any other services we needed. We have recommended Florence Villas to many friends, and we will eagerly contact you again if we have the chance to return to Italy. It has been a pleasure -- keep up the good work.

Most beautiful villa in Florence

Thank you for helping us find the most beautiful villa in Florence. Villa Lunnetta is half of the bottom floor of a huge 13th century villa which used to be a hunting lodge for the nobles of Florence. The villa owner is on site and she is warm, welcoming and very flexible. The setting is beautiful with olive trees and grape vines - it is a working villa and we loved that aspect of it. It is within easy walking or driving distance to the train station which is a quick 20-minute ride to Florence. The perfect home-base for travels all around the region. Thanks, again. We will come back to Italy someday and we will think of you first when we do. - See more at:

Thank you for everything you did for us

I would like to thank you for everything you did for us. As for the apartment it was all we expected and even better, it is perfect for two couples traveling together as each couple have a separate bedroom and bath. The living area was great for morning coffee and to relax each evening and talk about the next day`s plans. The location of the apartment is perfect it is centrally located and near almost all the major sites allowing us to walk to everything. Just around the corner is a Gelato and coffee shop that serves what in my opinion is the best Gelato in Florence and the coffee is also excellent. I want to also thank you for arranging the last minute private Tuscany wine tour for us. We had a wonderful trip. I can`t say enough good things about Florence there is beauty everywhere you look, the people are friendly, and the food was wonderful. I can`t say enough good things about the apartment or the way we were treated by you Sharmila. You were very quick to respond back to all our questions and many emails in the months prior to our arrival and went way beyond what we expected to accommodate our late night arrival mishap. I would recommend Florencia Apartment to anyone who is looking for a great apartment in a wonderful location. I will send you come pictures in a few days.

Fantastic time in Florence

Hi Just a quick note We had a fantastic time in Florence, and for us that all started with our brilliant accommodation. Although we had to negotiate a few stairs, we loved the set-up of the apartment, the d���©cor and arrangement of rooms etc. I�¢â�¬â�¢d highly recommend the apartment for anyone looking for a well located and very well appointed apartment in Florence. Thanks again for the stay in the Florencia Apartment. Top notch!

I can`t imagine thinking I will not return!

The location was fabulous and Sharmila was terrific to deal with. The location made it more than worthwhile. I could see where it would be terrific to have both Sante Croce 1 & 2 so you could open up the doors between them and get some cross ventilation. I think the thing I would say to "first timer" typical A-type personality Americans - a class in which I place my family - be warned that "early morning in Italy means after 8 a.m. The first 2 days my husband and I were wandering deserted streets at 6 a.m. looking for a cup of coffee! But as we unwound - we "resynchronized" our watches. Florence is a city to wander through at its pace. And we came to love that! We were traveling with our high school and college aged children and were thrilled with how safe we all felt wandering both in groups and on our own. I can`t imagine thinking I will not return!
