We couldn't have chosen a better hotel in picturesque Florence! What a lovely view from the hotel! It's like old world charm! Like an old Italian castle! A little away from city centre & so we every time had to spend €15 to get back to the hotel after dinner but I would still say "worth it"! It has lovely... More

It was one of our best choices that we decided to book in this hotel, all was simply perfect, the location is amazing, the people, cant thank enough, the place and Energy, is undesirable, now who wants anything more, when a couple visit on a hunch, and it turns out to be a Jewel

I decided to bring my partner to Florence a week ago as my family was originally from there, and I couldn't choose a better place to stay, we've probably been one of the first guests, since this marvellous place open up again with a great and glorious new management. The Villa has been completely renovated and refurbished (you can feel... More

Not a luxury hotel, but where else can you have the experience of hearing the Sisters chanting downstairs, of walking in a quiet garden overlooking Florence, of communicating with a sweet energetic nun with only expressions and gestures. She saw that I was solo, but had been charged for a double room, and worked with the booking company to lower... More

I stayed there only 2 nights, wish there were more. It's a quite place in the hills over Florence, very green, very nice nuns. The rooms are simpel, but there is all in what I needed. No problems with hot water (like someone else wrote), WiFi (ask the nuns for the code!) or mosquitos (end of April). Great view over... More

Stayed at Villa Agape two nights in May and again for three nights, in October 2013. Just loved the place for its historic background, its wonderful Italian-English garden created by its former owner, Princess Anne d'Orleans, in the second half of the XXth century and for its current high maintenance by a small group of nuns assisted by numerous staff...

According to wiki "The original house was built in 1472, but was rebuilt in its present form by Giulio de Filippo Arrighetti in 1602. Arrighetti was friendly with the scientist Galileo, who retired to Arcetri, effectively under house arrest after the condemnation of his theories. A plaque on the wall commemorates their friendship.The house is also known as Il Galateo... More
