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!

This hotel is a must for those visiting Florence. An oasis of calm just outside the city with wonderful, friendly staff, spacious rooms and elegant public areas. Lots of outside sitting areas to soak up the.view. Courtesy bus runs throughout the day to take you to the city centre. Delicious breakfast served overlooking the Duomo. 10/10!

My wife and I had an amazing stay here. It is such a beautiful hotel, away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. There are amazing views of Florence from the rooftop. The garden area is beautiful. The breakfast was very good as well and we enjoyed breakfast each morning with a killer view of Duomo. Other reviews... More

Our trip was to consist of 2 days to explore Florence and 2 days to explore the Tuscan hills/wineries. When deciding where to stay, the choice was to either stay in a villa out in Chianti and drive to Florence, or stay in Florence and drive to the hills. Staying in Florence at Villa La Vedetta was by far the... More

We had a wonderful stay at Villa La Vedetta. We lucked out with a room on the corner overlooking the pool, which had an incredible, sweeping view of the Duomo, Arno, and the rest of Florence. The rooms were nice...can't say anything bad about them. Good size and all the amenities that we expected and needed. The pool was useful... More

I studied abroad in Florence and got to see/experience the city in many ways. The views from this hotel are magnificent. It truly is the perfect distance to get away from the busy part of the city, but close enough to easily shuttle into the city during the day. That's right, I said shuttle. This hotel offers a FREE shuttle... More

Stayed in Villa la Vedetta for a weekend and had an overall great experience. Reading previous reviews about the noise, could certainly either deny it or consider it to be a lucky stay since villa was more an oasis of peace than anything else. The villa is a little out of town (about 15-20minutes walk) but the views of the... More
