It's a very special experience to stay in Villa la Sosta when visiting Florence. It completes your dive into the history and matches very well the spirit of the city. Above all, the owners are just amazing people - very friendly, welcoming and helpful, as well as caring about comfort of their guests. We had a very positive encounter with... More

We stayed here for 1 night before travelling on to our holiday rental. We deliberately booked this as we knew it would be outside the ZTL and we would have a hire car and didn't want to drive into Florence. It is about a 20 minute walk into Florence, but the bus stop is right outside. We walked in but... More

I recently stayed at the lovely Villa La Sosta with my teenage son for 5 nights. I've been to Florence many times and as much as I love it I find the heat and crowds overwhelming. I'm so glad that this time I chose somewhere a bit out of the way but quiet, tranquil and beautiful. I will certainly stay... More

As always, Villa La Sosta proved itself to be a great place to stay. Location is outside the center but this only makes for a quiet sleep. There are parking places inside the yard which ensures the protection of your car. Bus 25 leaves literally in front of the hotel every 20 minutes and brings you to town center for... More

Spent one night here on the basis it was 10mins walk from centre of Florence. Not so, it is 10 mins bus ride from San Marco and there is only a bus about every 15-20mins. Also the website says the bus goes from the station and it hasn't for the last 3 years. We really like being able to walk... More

If you have a full day to spend in Florence/Tuscany - take the wine your with Antonio (and the lovely Gianacarlo). One word to describe it - FUN! This was our second wine tour of Tuscany with Antonio. We loved the first one so much, we made it a "must" when we returned to Florence with family. The tour starts... More

This was our second visit to Villa La Sosta and hopefully we will visit again It is ahaven from the hordes in Florence but it is possible to walk to The Duomo. the Hosts will also reserve tickets for the Uffizi Gallery. Other advantages are the car park and the proximity to Fiesole. Of course the rooms are beautifully spacious... More

Fabulous stay at Villa La Sosta. Guiseppina was so helpful; nothing was too much trouble. It was like staying in a home away from home. The villa is close to Florence with a bus stop outside it so no need to use a car in the city. The villa itself is beautiful with lovely gardens to sit in. Only problem... More

Nothing was too much trouble from the start. Beautiful house, gorgeous room overlooking the garden. Spotlessly clean with a large bathroom. Breakfast was great, you can sit wherever you like inside or out. Close enough to the centre to walk in. Felt completely safe at night, no trouble at all. Will definitely return!

I find it hard to put in words what a fabulous time my girlfriend and I had at Villa La Sosta. Although the Villa was amazing it was really the host Antonio that made our trip wonderful. I haven't met anyone more hospitable. We may have arrived as guests but we certainly departed as friends.
