Over the years we have stayed in several hotels in Florence including some of the „palaces“. Villa Vedetta is our favorite because of its discrete elegance, the superb view and the very friendly and efficient management and staff. Of course not all rooms are created equal but the reception does everything to give you the best room among those available... More

We had a wonderful stay at this charming hotel - chic, modern and perfect in every way. The breakfast was delicious, the location couldn't be faulted with fantastic views over Florence in a quiet location. The real stars of the show are the lovely staff, all of whom are delightful and helpful. We would love to return. This hotel has... More

We chose this boutique hotel for our stay when we got married in Florence. Although it is located outside of the city and on the other side of the Arno, it is a wonderful place to stay. There is a free navette service to the city and back. We had the Bellavista Suite with a magnifient view over Florence. The... More

If you are looking for a good hotel outside of busy Florence I definetly recommend it. They have a pick up service in the city center which works really well, at the beggining they gave us a timetable with the pick up service schedule, but in fact they come pick you up in the center when you call them without...

I booked online to visit Villa la Vedetta for one night in November 2013. Unfortunately my plans were slightly altered so I asked them to change the reservation from Saturday to Sunday night, i.e. just one night. They informed me that that was impossible since on November 24th the hotel closes for the winter. I asked them to refund me... More

Dear Andreas, After reading your review I feel that it is necessary to bring to your attention that the reservation for your stay at Villa La Vedetta which was made on November 19th 2013 and that you chose to book, through Booking.com, was a NOT REFUNDABLE rate. A rate which is fully prepaid without the possibility to receive a refund... More

What an incredible experience! If we could give a hotel a higher rating we would give it to this hotel. It is high on the hillside overlooking all of Florence (which view you get to enjoy during breakfast as well as "tea-time" on the magnificent terrace) so for those who want to be in the middle of the crowds in...

This was truly a 5 star hotel. We stayed here for three nights at the start of our honeymoon. On our arrival we were shown to our room and a bottle of pro secco was brought up to us with a lovely note congratulating us on our new marriage - lovely touch. Amazing views of Florence from the terrace where... More
