Elisa was a great host. Very welcoming and informative. The location was great. Just outside Florence in the country. We had a rental car, and the parking was easy and large. We did use the bus and a taxi once so we did not have to pay at the train station all day and it was quick and easy. The Villa is clean and beautifully decorated. The pool area is amazing! We also did a wine and Olive Oil tasting with Elisa which was fun and informative. We really enjoyed our stay here!!
Great host, Great location. This is an actual Winery and is just out of the city. Spectacular views from anywhere. Great pool and spacious clean rooms. Fresh clean linen hand towels and large cotton bath towels.
Loved this place and enjoyed our stay. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Borgo dei Ricci is a lovely property. The apartment is spacious with two balconies that overlook a courtyard. It is fully furnished. The furniture is more formal that relaxed , but was not uncomfortable. The pool is beautiful, although it was too cool for swimming when we were there. The host was responsive when we requested more towels.
The only real negative is that it is located on a narrow road with no shoulder. The traffic moved very fast and we did not feel comfortable walking along the road - even to go to a restaurant close by. In addition, the bedrooms are on the road side of the apartment and the traffic noise was significant, especially in the mornings.
We arrived later than planned and Elisa was kind and arrange someone that waited for us. The apartment was really comfortable and bigger than I thought. We were able to accommodate 7 people, 2 in 1 bedroom, 3 in the other (double and single bed Elisa had arranged) and another couple in the sofa-bed. Everything was perfectly clean and functional. The place is very close to Florence by car, I guess public transportation makes it hard but as we had our own cars, it worked great!
This is a beautiful apartment in a villa in the family's vineyard. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and quiet in a glorious setting. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the birds and listening to them sing. The host gave us a bottle of wine from her family's vineyard and told us about the availability of a wine tasting at their vineyard, but we didn't have time to attend. The apartment is a short distance from the beautiful city of Florence.
Ce séjour a été plus qu'agréable! Appartement situé à 20 minutes de Florence, en pleine campagne. Cadre idéale lorsque l'on veut se reposer avec vue sur les collines toscanes, grand jardin et immense piscine à débordement. L'appartement est idéalement situé pour une virée dans le Chianti. Seul petit bémol, la climatisation faisait beaucoup de bruit et l'appartement était un peu poussiéreux mais cela n'a gâché en rien notre séjour!
We had a fantastic time in Italy. The apartment was perfect, spacious and clean. We loved the balcony, the views were amazing. The apartment was well located, so easy to visit florence and other attraction in Florence. The local restaurant was delicious. best Italian food ever. The pool was clean and quiet and had wonderful views of the Tuscan hills. A particular highlight was the wine tasting with Elisa. She was great. we sample wines and olive oil and spent the rest of the holiday drinking the tasty wines made on the vine yards. We would throughly recommend this property!!!
