This historical villa was insisted upon by my daughter and her partner. As fabulous as they told us it was, it was much more than we imagined. It defines what enchantment really is. So many centuries with the same family, gardens, vineyards and orchards. The help and many great suggestions for short trips to Florence were all perfect. The dinner... More

We spent four nights at this lovely villa in the town of Sesto Fiorentino, which is about 15 minutes by train to Florence. The gardens are beautiful and our room and en suite bathroom was very spacious and comfortable. Our hosts were super friendly and helpful. It seemed there was nothing Serena and Laura wouldn't do to make our stay... More

I just want to thank you Serena, Laura, Costanza et al for giving us such a wonderful holiday in Tuscany. The accommodation was spacious, comfortable and full of history. It was lovely to be hidden away from the crowds in a walled farm, with olive groves, vines, lemon trees, fruit and vegetables. Your advice on where to go within Florence... More

My two sisters and I stayed for 7 nights in the Melograno rooms at this enchanting place, and we couldn't recommend it highly enough; it was a holiday in itself. With its pool, vineyard, olive orchard, fruit trees, vegetable, herb and flower gardens all surrounded by a high wall, it was like being in the country, yet with the centre... More

Our family stayed 6 nights at the Villa, taking day-trips by car and by train into Florence and the surrounding area. It was perfect for us because we were able to relax in the peace and quiet of the estate after our busy days in the city. Our children loved it because, with the big garden, grape vines, olive trees... More

I spent 3 wounderful nights at this villa and if you asked my husband or any of my 3 kids they would tell you it was there highlight. First when they walked in they all said ...."can we live here"?From eating straight from the garden or a tree or cooking and running right out our door together pick spices or... More

We were a group of 7 women looking for a ‘Tuscan experience’, Villa Paradisino was the ‘crown jewel’ of our trip. The location, 20 minutes by foot from the train station made it ideal since we only rented a car for a few days. Besides the architecture and charm of the villa, what was most appealing were the two sisters... More

We recently returned from a two week trip to Italy and spent our last four nights at Villa Il Paradisino. Having visited and stayed in central Florence, we wanted a new experience but still be close enough to go into Florence. The Villa was absolutely perfect and we are so thrilled to have stayed there! Set in the middle of... More

We don't really have anything to compare this to, price-wise, and so cannot give an objective view on value - but we absolutely love the place. Costanza and her sister, Serena, are devoted to ensuring you get the best out of your stay. We have stayed twice in Il Melograno and love the way the living room joins seamlessly with... More

We have just finished a one week stay at Villa Il Paradisino and we were hugely impressed by the quality of the accommodation and the warm welcome we received from Costanza and Serena. The apartment was great, the grounds are very beautiful with flowers, vines and olive trees. The wine and olive oil from the villa is excellent. Getting into... More
