We recently traveled to Florence and stayed for a week at Villa La Sosta with another couple. Florence was in the middle of a serious heat wave with temps near 100. The Villa La Sosta accommodations could not have been better with a nice large air conditioned room to sleep in; a welcome relief during the heat wave. The morning... More

We have been going to Villa La Sosta since 2004. It just gets better. Giuseppina is just like family. We and another couple stayed there for a week from 6/27 to 7/4/2015. This was in the middle of a European heatwave and the air conditioning was a big plus. As usual, Giusy recommended places to go and things to do... More

There is not even a question. If you go to Florence make sure to stay in Villa La Sosta. The villa itself is amazing as even though its in the city the green belt around it makes it seem as if youre in the countryside. The bus stops right in front of the house(less than 10 mins to the center)... More

Very nice B&B with extremely friendly hosts. About 15 minute bus ride from start of Florence city center. Bus stop is immediately outside the Villa gate. Stayed with my mom in a room with two twin beds. Room was larger than expected for Europe, and had its own bathroom. The tub/shower was quite small with a handheld shower head but... More

We stayed in La Villa Sosta for 4 nights with our family of 4 (2 rooms). It is a big Villa in a quiet residential area which has been nicely transformed in a hotel. There is a parking inside the property which is very convenient. There is also a bus stop right in front of the Villa. The bus takes... More

We stayed in Villa La Sosta for 6 magical days. The place is outside of city center in a quiet and cozy neighborhood. The bus is just in front of the house. It takes about 10min by bus to get to city center, by walk it takes approximately 30min. It costs around 10 euro to get to the train station.... More

This villa is outstanding. It is spotless, reasonable and perfectly located away from the crowds. The owners live here and welcome you into their home. They are very accomodating, full of ideas and a joy to be with. They catered to my every wish and i had a lot of them! They directed us where to eat, what to see... More

We stayed at Villa La Sosta for eight glorious days and we can't say enough about the beautiful villa and its fabulous family. Our room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. There was a large sunroom on the third floor and a beautiful garden outside where you could relax, have a glass of wine or even have a... More
