We stayed two times at Villa Il Sasso during our trip to Italy and loved it. Villa is located on the top of a hill in a quiet neighborhood and in short distance from Florence. All staff were wonderful people, helpful and super polite. We stayed in the same room both times. However, they showed us two other rooms and... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa il Sasso for 5 days and we enjoyed every second of our stay there. This place was amazing, the view, the rooms, and the service. We had the first room on the first floor mainly because I was pregnant and we didn't want to climb up any stairs. Our room had a view... More

A gem in Fierenze Sud, this is a quiet palatial retreat. Upon passing through the gates you enter into another world where elegance and grace reign once again with subtle and quiet sophistication. The Villa is a delight to all of the senses. The rooms are airy and large, as well as elegantly appointed with extremely comfortable beds. The staff... More

My husband and I got married in Florence in 2011 and we stayed at this fabulous hotel. I was just browsing trip advisor and really thought it was time to comment.

It took me a month to submit my review but its about time :) This is a gorgeous place! A beautiful villa (pictures don't do justice), clean as a whistle and this is not easy with all the small details everywhere. Smell was always sooooo good.

We didn’t enjoy our stay here as much as we’d hoped. The pictures are quite deceiving as you’re very close to quite an industrial part of Tuscany. I wouldn’t call it a hotel either. This is a very grand B&B/guest house. So grand in fact the interior design was very confusing. French, British, Chinese, bit of Italian… We had to... More

We booked this villa for our honeymoon and was not disappointed . We wanted a place which was quiet and just outside florence. When you arrive at the villa you are immediately struck by how beautiful it is and how well it is looked after, the room we had was amazing. Breakfast was all you needed and lunch if required....

We've just stayed for 5 nights here and it was exactly what we hoped for. Beautiful accommodation, incredibly friendly and helpful staff, great location. The villa is 45 minutes from Florence by local bus, making it a peaceful retreat but also close enough to go into town each day. The only thing that was a problem was the Mosquitos, they're... More
