Lovely countryside

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 15, 2005

This was one of the most beautiful hostels I had the pleasure of staying in on my travels. Beside a vinyard, the hostel itself has gorgeous architecture (that it was even noticable sets it apart from most hostels). The smell in the garden - whatever flowers were creating it - is one of the best memories I have. They show free movies in the basement (though the sound quality was bad when I went), and the store doubles as a bar in that you can buy your drinks there and enjoy a leisurely tipple in the garden.

One of my favourite things about this place was that it was a slice of Tuscan countryside. However, some people might find this off-putting as it means you have to catch a bus into town. The buses come quite frequently, though, and are cheap. There is a curfew, as with many hostels, and they separate the men from the women (which I found more common in Italy than in some other countries). If these things bother you, then this is probably not the place for you. However, if you're looking for a nice quiet bit of tranquility at bargain prices, I recommend staying here.

Unique Quality: If I recall correctly, they have laundry facilities here, which, if you're backpacking, is a godsend.

Some hostal or 'Albergos'
but Florence Tuscany at Europa-Villa Camerata
Youth Hostel is a beautiful place to stay.
US$12 Dlls breakfast include

Unique Quality: The Villa containing the hostel dates from the 16th century and is within a huge green park. But that's not all. The garden that surrounds it is a very precious botanical garden containing rare and unusual essences of vegetables, patiently cared for by the elderly owner.
