"a great place to stay for many reasons"
Firstly, the place itself. Spotless and just like the photos. Everything is as described with lots of little additional touches. Secondly the location. 10 minute walk to the bus that takes you into Fl… More

"Beautiful, convenient, Simone was great!"
I would highly recommend this place. Simone had great communication prior to booking and was available for any assistance we needed once we were there. Simone has prepared a map of all the things you need to know i.e. grocery store, buses, trains, etc. He also asked what else we were interested in and gave us some tips and notes on a Florence map. He recommended some restaurants of which we tried 3 - all were hits! The location is convenient to Florence and the sites there and allowed us to do a lot of day trips around the region. The pool was lovely and right on the hill. It is what you would think of when you say "Tuscan Villa". Even being so close to the city, you feel like you are in the middle of the country. The pictures do not do it justice. I would definitely stay there again.

"Quiet and convenient for Florence"
The owner Simone Starnoti is on-site and very helpful. The location is very pleasant and quiet. The mill house and the garden / pool area provide plenty of restful places to sunbathe or just to sit and read. The walk to the local shop and bus stop is around 1km but if you wish to go further afield than Florence to larger shops and supermarkets a car is required. The bus service to and from Florence is very frequent, takes around 20mins and is only 1.20 euros each way. Even better is the ATAF 24 hour bus ticket at 5 euros which allows you to hop on and off as many bussini (small electric bus) in Florence city centre and saves walking from one attraction to another.

"Great location, Charming"
The villa is very accessible to Florence and other points of interest in Tuscany. Charming villa on an old olive plantation. Very spacious and comfortable. Will come back again!

"Beautiful Tuscan Hillside Accomodations with great near-city convenience"
The Frantoio is located just west of Florence. While within walking distance of the city center, the Bus proved to be a much easier solution (15 min walk to bus stop). Also located within walking distance of the rail line, which makes it possible to take the train throughout the country. The roads in this part of the city were very narrow with high walls, drive as little as possible.
The Property is stunning. Grapes, olives and other fruits line the landscape. Nice quiet setting which can be quite relaxing after a long day out. The room was efficient, but cozy. The bathroom may have been a bit austere, but that is more common in Europe. But then again, I am an American traveler with different norms. I would have like an enclosed shower stall though.
Nice amenities including a comfortable bed, WiFi and satellite TV service (not to mention the occasional bottle of Wine made on site). Very comfortable over all. The property is also gated, adding to the security and ease. We were a bit late in the season to use the pool, but the excellent patio setting was great to sit out under the stars and enjoy a bottle of wine.
It should be noted that this location has about 5 rental apartments in all. Though we used the opportunity to meet a very nice family from France. It was a good opportunity meet several people and enjoy a conversion once in a while.
The service was great. Simone Starnoti was always available (resides on location) and always friendly. He would always do whatever was needed to ensure that the guests were happy. Doing business was a pleasure.
In all, I would certainly recommend this location. In fact, I may return here myself if I get a chance.

"I would stay there forever"
Me and my husband stayed at Frantoio delle Gazie in Sep-Oct 2011. And we loved it. There are 5 or 6 apartments in the house, we stayed at Melograni, an apartment with one bedroom, living room & a kitc… More

"Best of both worlds"
We really enjoyed our stay at Frantoio delle Grazie Arance. The apartment was really clean, modern and comfortable and the pool is an excellent addition to the holiday. The house is really quiet and private and you feel as though you are in the middle of the Tuscan countryside. However Florence city centre is only a short bus/train ride away. Simone the owner was also really helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend a visit.
