The hotel is a fantastic retreat from the hustle and bustle of Florence. The staff went out of their way to make you feel welcome and could not do enough for you. We did not have a car so we relied on the hotel organising a taxi for us for the 2 days we went into Florence. It was not... More

We stayed in the Villa Saulina for five days, it was wonderful! Set in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, the location is stunning and the welcome we received by Matteo on arrival was warm and sincere and if I’m honest, unexpected. Even though the location is somewhat off the beaten track it is only a short taxi ride from the station... More

Villa Saulina sits on the outskirts of Florence and is just a quick, 5 min drive plus a 2-stop train ride into Florence. The hotel is clean and cozy and is what you would expect for a countryside inn except they have added AC which was unexpected bonus. The hotel staff is what makes the hotel as they could not... More

The Hotel Saulina was our home for one evening before we enjoyed the "Good Tastes of Tuscany" cooking school nearby. Our expectations were exceeded in all respects. The area, room, service and food were great. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Be careful with your GPS... our Garmin took us only half way up the "hill" to Villa Saulina.... More
