of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We just returned from a week long stay at the Villa. We chose this hotel since it provided for free parking. Little did we know what a great choice we made. From the outset, the staff, the accommodations and the view were first rate. Also the on-sight restaurant was excellent although a little pricey. Every morning they provided a sumptuous breakfast buffet and would make special order hot entrees upon request at no charge. There was a charge for a cup of American coffee but for me that was worth it. Any question, request, desire was answered immediately. They run a shuttle to downtown every hour at your request and will pick you up each hour when requested. We found the shuttle very convenient although a taxi only costs about 12 euros. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from Piazzale Michelangelo and from there you can chose to walk downhill to the town in about 10 minutes. Since the villa is on hill across the Arno, although it is not far from the town, it would be quite a trek to walk up the hill to the hotel. This distance however allows you tranquility and views to die for. Guest rooms are located in the main villa and guest house. If you do get a ground floor guest house room, you get a little patio area with it but at night when you close the door there are no windows to open for fresh air if desired. There is also a lovely outside pool on site.
"Anniversary weekend away"
Absolutely beautiful hotel, wonderful staff and fantastic perfect setting. Front desk advised and booked restaurants that we asked for, their knowledge was superb. We asked in advance if there were weddings booked during our stay - there was and a private dinner, so we planned our weekend around these, but still had private areas to escape and heard nothing when we returned from dinner. we booked the hotel dinner for our first night and the food was amazing, the only thing was the restaurant was empty so perhaps lacked a little atmosphere. If there is a downside the pool is in the shade in the afternoons, a minor detail. cannot recommend highly enough.
"Beautiful Sunset view of Firenze. Great place to enjoy a proseco and appreciate the beauty of the City"
I was looking for somewhere to enjoy the sunset over Florence. This delightful small hotel has a grand terrace from which to enjoy the view and relax as the sun sets! We did not stay overnight but the structure was charming inside and out. Lovely wine list.
"Villa La Vedetta restaurant"
Excellent setting for dinner. We were able to sit outside with a view of the entire city of Florence before us. Excellent service and moderate pricing. There were 10 of us and we were the only people on the patio. Some choices for dinner were excellent some average. Perfect night with light wind and clear skies. Would go again just for the view.
"Elegant Villa overlooking Florence"
What a beautiful hotel on the hillside overlooking Florence. We stayed for two nights following seven nights in the Tuscan countryside, but wished we had stayed longer. Located very close to the Piazza Michelangelo and a pleasant stroll to the Ponte Vecchio, the also offer shuttle service into Florence. We would definitely stay here again.
