Our arrival was a bit late in the evening. We were too tired to go out for dinner. The owners (Angela and Tino) helped us find a pizza delivery. Most did not deliver at that time so Angela went out on her Vespa to get us a Pizza. She came back in ten (!) minutes with two very tasty pizza's and a nice bottle of red wine. How's that for a welcome! The hostel is very lovely decorated with housemade art. Only 7 or 8 (all uniquely decorated)rooms available make this hostel small and cosy. The rooms are clean just like the rest of the building. So if you are looking for a sweet, small, romantic and "no-hurry" place to stay... this is the one. Breakfast in bed is modest, but tasty. The warm "scones", coffee and orange-juice will give you a jumpstart for the day. Speaking of which: for any information about the surroundings or a day out, Angela and Tino are very devoted in assisting you in this. We stayed at I Villini for almost a week giving us time to explore the surroundings. Take the 15 minute train ride to Florence for example. It is a lovely ride and tickets are very cheap. We really enjoyed our one week stay in this lovely albergo and we can encourage you to give it a try. The owners definitely define the word hospitality. Thank you for a lovely time.
