On arrival we were greeted like long-lost friends...Donatella is such a gracious host. We were immediately comfortable and loved the Villa and the area. Bedroom and bathroom are well-equipped, every need has been anticipated. Tea and coffee-making facilities are above average with lovely china and silverware, and all rooms are so clean they shine. Access to Florence is easy, with... More

Do yourself a favor and discover the REAL Florence and stay at Villa Malavolta. The experience is made all the more special by Donatella - a wonderful and gracious host. The villa is divine as are the gardens. To stay in a real Florentine street (well actually the villa is situated on the ancient road from Florence to Rome) and... More

Donatella's villa is a gem of Florence. The gardens and the villa are beautifully maintained and the hosts are without par. My daughter was married in the garden's grotto on October 11th, 2012. Donatella even supplied the wedding flowers. From the moment you enter the villa you will feel welcome. Bus service is a short walk away. Breakfast was delicious... More

We were so fortunate to find Donatella's beautiful villa on our first visit to Florence. Our hosts really gave you the feeling that you were a special guest in their home. For art lovers, you can't get any better than having an accomplished artist like Donatella to give you tips on what to visit in Florence. We had booked 3... More

Host is so helpful and a lovely table at breakfast for a good continental breakfast. Nice and quiet from the hustle and bustle of the city. Buses are very easy and regular to get in and out of the city centre. Within walking distance of Tuscan Hills for a quieter day away from city sight seeing. Tony & Mandy, Colchester... More

People say Firenze is a city of Art, people say Firenze is a city of history. If you ever got a chance to stay there, do your a favor to choose this place. It's safe, clean, warm, beautiful. It's gorgeous, graceful. It's full of memory. Just at the first sight after you open the door, you will fall in love... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were not disappointed. We had a room with our own bathroom next door, totally private. A sitting room come library was on the same floor, which was real treat. Breakfast was a buffet with a good selection of fruit, meat, cheese, bread etc. We would certainly stay there again.

Donatella and the Villa Malavolta made our stay in Florence feel like home. She was very helpful with directions, bus schedules, museum info about Florence and even the surrounding area of Tuscany. She directed us to the Etruscan Trails near Sovana and we enjoyed them so much that we would love to go back and spend more time there. Our... More

The villa & garden are delightful. The bedrooms are comfortable and breakfast delicious. We were given a warm welcome with many helpful suggestions from Donattella. Sergio's evening piano playing was a delight.
