You get to see Florence without staying in town with the crush of people everywhere. A truly historic hotel setting on a beautiful large piece of property with killer views. You even get a free shuttle that will drop you off at the city gates. Do not miss the indoor setting rooms, covered terrace with a view of the city... More

Me and my husband were on a honeymoon. And we booked the most simple room, because the aim was walking in Florence. When we arrived to the hotel - we found out that the team made for us a surprise, and gave for us Junior Suit!!! The room was so beautiful, it corresponds a lot with the soul of Florence... More

The Villa Agape is a beautiful old villa but has been updated to be a very nice hotel. We stayed two nights there in September, 2015 and enjoyed beautiful weather. The location is a bit out of the way from the main part of Florence, but the free hotel shuttle into town is very nice. You can also pre-arrange for... More

We loved the location and level of courteous service provided by the staff. The villa and gardens are beautiful. The villa is a bit south of the Arno River, but it offers a convenient shuttle service to 3 pre-set stops in Florence. Cons: The room doors are quite loud in this old building. In October, it does not run air... More

We arrived by car. Plenty of parking space and an extremely helpful and friendly guy on reception. Great room and bathroom, wonderful buffet breakfast, all in a fantastically peaceful setting. It's a 10 minute drive to the centre of Florence, but the free courtesy bus is always on call. Wouldn't stay anywhere else of we're ever back in Florence, which... More

Vila Agape has an enviable location on the hill side above San Miniato. The Villa was built as a simple summer house in the 15c. The current splendour dates back to Anne d'Orleans who after having it purchased in 1948 undertook to restore it and created the gardens one can see today, the Villa was then passed to a Religious...

This beautiful Villa located just above Florence offers wonderful rooms and the most beautiful gardens. Enjoy breakfast in the garden, what an amazing way to start your day. They do offer a shuttle service, which is a lovely convenience. Our only regret is that our stay was for just one night.

Dive into a classy atmospere from times gone. Situated on a hill just above Florence and within walng distance of Piaza Michelangiolo, it offers a great view of Florece. Excellent staff, great atmospere and beautiful gardens. Privade yard for parking, breakfast served in the garden, what else can you ask for?

We visited in august 2015 for 2 nights. At check in, the receptionist informed us we had been upgraded. What a pleasant surprise! The room was gorgeous, but our jaw really dropped when we saw the gardens. The hotel's location and surroundings are beautiful. No, it is not located steps away from the Duomo (they never advertised it as such).... More

With beautiful gardens a wonderful setting to watch the Tuscany sun go down. The breakfast is wonderful and you will never find a... More
