The good -- Historic 500-year-old villa overlooking Florence and Sesto countryside. Elegant hand-painted frescos in every room including bedrooms. Real period furniture everywhere. Friendly and helpful staff including owner Christina. Live the way nobles did hundreds of years ago. Good buffet breakfast. 15 minutes to historic Florence via train. The cautions -- Inconvenient without a car and very difficult to... More

Delightful, amazing, a step back in time to a beautiful Florentine era hosted by the lovely Cristina, whose family has owned the property for ages. Huge trees, lovely grounds, gardens, lemon trees in old ceramic pots offer peaceful breakfasts on the terrace and lovely relaxation by the poolside or under a tree with birds and senuous scents of the garden's...

From being met at midnight by Christina Villoresi to checking out 9 days later we had a fantastic stay. It's about 15 minutes drive from central Florence but a great escape from the hustle and bustle of tourist crowds, and within the walls of the formal garden or the ancient walls of the villa itself it feels like your own...

We stayed with the Contessa in her family home for six nights and had the most amazing holiday. The grounds are beautiful, green, peaceful and colourful. The pool was well kept and great to soak in at the end of a long day pounding the pavements of Florence or Siena. The staff were helpful and attentive. We hadn't booked a... More

We stayed 4 nights too many. The room: so small there was only space to walk around the 2 twin beds making a double and mattresses so old we were constantly sinking in the middle, dirty carpets, one prison cell window, tiny bathroom. We did not expected to get the huge bedroom on the website's pictures, nor this. The breakfast:... More

The Villa Villoresi is the equivalent of heritage listed and deservedly so. My wife had stayed there in the 70s and chose to adopt the villa as our base for a six day stay near to Florence. On our one day visit to Florence with the two friends with whom we shared the visit we chose to leave the car... More

If you are looking for a hotel that offers luxury accommodations in Florence, don't stay here. However if you are looking for an authentic Tuscan experience, off the beaten path and with exceptional service, this is the absolute best hotel. I can not say enough positive things about Villa Villoresi. My husband and I recently took our honeymoon in Italy... More

I remember staying with my parents years ago for a couple of nights. I remember the Contessa, the fantastic Palazzo, the entryway...I just hope I will be able to go back and stay longer. Truly a one of a kind experience.

We spent six magnificent days staying in this beautiful home. The hallway is simply stunning and there are beautiful frescoes and paintings at every turn of the head. Contessa Cristina Villoresi welcomed us personally with a tour of the hotel and gave us two rooms to choose from. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. We had decided not... More
