If I were a frequent visitor to Florence, I selfishly wouldn't tell anyone about this place. But since I'm not, I want to tell everyone! Villa Aruch has been so beautifully and stylishly restored, it's an absolute haven after a chaotic day in Florence. The location is perfect if you need to be close to the airport, or if you... More

We stayed in Villa Aruch in June 2014 with two young children and it was superb. The apartments are beautifully designed and while not the most practical for very young children (ours was Apt. #13 with a fabulous metal staircase) our two girls thought the whole place was an adventure wonderland! There were many nice touches including a basket of... More

I found the Villa Aruch on booking.com - objective was to find a place close to the airport due to a very early morning flight. The 'hotel' is a villa which has been redone with about 16 apartments, all self-catering. There is a small reception which works normal business hours, and there is also a lounge room with cookies, fruit,... More

This is an excellent place to stay near the airport. Free parking but even if you don't have a car it's a 30 minute bus ride into the old city. The apartments are very nicely furnished, everything new since 2012. No breakfast but fresh fruits and cookies are available and expresso in the room. Staff are very friendly and helpful.... More

What a pleasant surprise we had when we checked into the Villa Aruch . The studio apartment we had was quite spacious and very modern. The snack room was a welcome treat after a long journey. Claudia even picked us up at the airport which was unplanned and very appreciated. Grazie Claudia. Overall the place is a great bargain for... More

This place was found by searching design hotels in Florence with parking lot. What a great choice! The apartment is so comfortable, with a good space and also the bathroom is cool. The kitchen provides enough accessories for quickly and easy meals. They nicely offered us a welcoming basket with coffee, tea and some grissinis. The back garden it's so... More

We loved staying at Villa Aruch. The rooms, the decoration and the mood are so cute, cozy and rich. We could reach the city center by bus (bus stop at a 5 minutes walk from the hotel). If you need to be near the city and not in the center of it, this place is the best place for you.

We needed a place to stay close to the airport at the end of our trip in Tuscany, and the hotels in the area sounded dingy at best. Villa Aruch is a renovated old manor with beautiful beams in the ceiling that rents lovely self catering apartments for the cost of a hotel room--it's a much better value. We rented... More

Three of us stayed at Villa Aruch and found the hotel really very good! We got a large suite (good for five), a large bedroom and a kitchen. Neat and clean bathroom rounded up the good experience. The receptionist (a lady - forget her name - sorry!) was extremely helpful. We had a car and finding the place was a... More
