Wonderful relaxing gem

Wonderful villa. friendly staff who made us feel at home. The grounds of the villa are amazing, relaxing in the hammock with a glass(bottle) of local chianti red bought from reception was pure bliss. The town is very close to the villa with wonderful restaurants, bars, and cafes. There is a regular bus service into Florence which takes around 30 mins and is only 3 euro each way. You can book tours to local vineyard or the local fashion outlet so there is no shortage of things to do, we were happy to chill out in the town and in the villa grounds.
The only downside was the wi-fi which was very very slow, this was an issue when we were trying to book our excursions in Florence.
We took a taxi from outside Florence station it cost 70 euro, more than we were quoted by the hotel, we did wonder if the taxi driver was getting his hand in, that said we were quote 120 euro each way for a private transfer, unfortunately the hotel doesn't offer a transfer service.
