We stayed at the most wonderful hotel in the hills that over look Florence. Although it was a little ruff around the edges (Pete masterfully caught two wasps at breakfast in the same glass) it was just perfect the way it was. A converted old hunting lodge it was huge but not assuming and it was decorated in a paired back fashion that really let the beautiful wall paintings and architecture speak for itself. And the view! What a view! If you get a chance visit the Torre di Bellosguardo Hotel just for the view and we all agreed it was a wonderful counter to all the hugely over decorated hotels of modern times.
