Perfect location if you want a base to tour Tuscany or visit Florence. Florence is only a 4 euro/15 minute train ride away and the station is only a 5 min stroll, trains every 30 mins (don’t drive into Florence it’s a nightmare to park). The highway connections are superb; Siena, San Gimignano (must see) and Pisa are within easy reach. The town itself is small and with only a few places to eat at night, however there are quite a few restaurants on the way to and in nearby Rufina. The Accommodation is simple, clean, comfortable and very safe. The owners speak excellent English and are more than helpful. They are both very knowledgeable on the local area, and more than willing to lend advice on places to visit. The heart of the Chianti region is only minutes away from the accommodation therefore a good base for the wine lovers. Overall the “Villini” was the best value accommodation we came across in our 2 month tour of Europe, it is well run and maintained we’ll be back in 2006, excellent value!
