Grand Hotel Villa Medici, Tuscany Italy
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Impressive, tranquil luxury property, originally a nobleman’s residence, just outside the main tourist area.
Free shuttle bus into the historic centre, professional service, peaceful gardens and outdoor pool more than compensate for its slightly removed location. Small health club and gym are a bonus.
Attracts discerning couples and individuals wanting an upmarket property away from the busy tourist area with free transport to the attractions. Mix of American, Japanese and European guests.
On quite a busy side street, a short way away from the main tourist area with residential buildings and local shops nearby. A 10-minute walk from a busier shopping area. A free property shuttle service operates to the historic centre everyday.
Main train station, bus station and taxi rank are 500m away, as is the large piazza of Santa Maria Novella with its church. 800m to the cathedral. A local bus to the centre stops 50m away. 5km (3 miles) to the airport.
