Absolutely loved this hotel. The terrace overlooking Florence is breathtaking; the tranquility of the pool and the grounds are 5 star - absolutely amazing. The hotel is smaller, so if you're looking for a fitness center and multiple onsite restaurant / bar options, this is not for you. If you're looking to get a true Italian feel and also 5... More

One of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed. Breakfast overlooking Florence was heaven. Laura, on reception, was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Jacuzzi bathtub a complete delight after walking all of Florence's cobbles. Can't wait to return!
