This hotel is set in a beautiful and private estate with stunning views over Florence. The food and the service were both great, and the room was impeccable and well appointed. Wifi access did not require passwords and was fast, and so we were able to stream across a number of devices when staying here. In particular the front desk... More

A nice boutique style hotel with amazing views of Firenze and a pool. A free shuttle service is provided into Firenze in case you do not have a car or would prefer not to drive into the city. The restaurant fell short of our expectations and there was minimal pool side service for drinks and/or food. More often than not... More

Ok first the view is amazing so you will be blown away by the view and by their cool pool (that's the only 5* part of the experience) Location wise you are not downtown Florence. You just need to do a 20 min walk to get to Ponte Vecchio and cross into beautiful Firenze. Because of the location of the... More

This is our last day at the hotel and everything has been excellent. Fantastic staff, pool, service, bed, linens, etc. We experienced no noise problems. Highly recommend if you are visiting Florence in the summer and with children and all other times. The pool was a welcome relief as were the poolside drinks and lunches. The views are spectacular, very... More

Beautiful views on the terrace overlooking Florence and the pool is a great spot to relax after the hustle and bustle of walking around in the gorgeous city of Florence. Positives: romantic setting for the wedding, excellent food and wine served throughout the wedding, comfortable beds, small hotel so it... More

We stayed at this wonderful hotel to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. The setting is stunning with fantastic views over Florence, especially from the relatively hidden roof terrace. The pool was a god send in the high temperatures and made the hotel the perfect escape from city sightseeing. The staff were all fantastic, incredibly helpful with restaurant bookings etc. we...

We visited for one night and absolutely loved our stay. We were looked after so well and received a room upgrade to a suite which was stunning. The views over Florence are amazing and although just above Florence we took the complimentary shuttle down in the evening without any issues. We enjoyed a dip in the pool during the afternoon...

Yes, lots of good things and some for improvement. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it. But, some things to note. The setting is wonderful. In tranquil gardens with magnificent view across the Arno to the City. But busy roads all around equals traffic noise. Also it is Siren Central, but then it is Italy. The building is... More

We had our wedding here for 35 guests on May 17 and everything was perfect. The villa is more gorgeous in real life than the pictures suggest. Alina was amazing at coordinating the event, vendors, everything! Not only is the setting so beautiful the service was exceptional. I would not change a thing about our wedding or 4 night stay...
