“Italy at it's best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

My wife and I could not imagine a better vision of Italy as we experienced at Bellosguardo.
The venue and view were simply out of this world!
Eating at the locally recommended restaurants was a unique and wonderful experience.
We will definitely go back as soon as we get the opportunity.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view over Florence is a must.

My wife and I spent another wonderful two weeks here in the Casa Rosa apartment.( the second of what we hope to be many visits) We are so comfortable here and are treated as if we are old friends. The grounds are the nicest in Florence but there is a unique charm to the place that sets it apart from the other 4 Stars in town.Perhaps it is the presence of the owner Amerigo Franchetti on the grounds with his wonderful smile and good humor. Or simply sitting and enjoying a glass of the excellent house wine in any of the grand rooms on the main floor. Once again Sandy painted some of the scenic spots around the property , and this year took a cooking lesson with Anna (Mrs.Franchetti) which was wonderful. Going to Bellosguardo is one of the true pleasures in our lives.

My wife and I just spent 6 wonderful days at beloved Torre di Bellosguardo on the outskirts of Florence. Surrounded by beautiful renaissance gardens, Bellosguardo is a timeless gem set in the postcard perfect hills, but still an easy walk to all the sights of Florence. Talk about a room with a view. The staff was very sweet and attentive, and Amerigo, the owner, takes great care to make sure every guest is happy. This is a place you will want to visit more than once.

We were only able to stay one night at this beautiful hotel, and wished we were able to extend our stay. It was perfect from the moment we drove up the long, beautifully landscaped driveway. The small staff was gracious, exceptional and attentive. The room, views, gardens and food were amazing. It was so comfortable, peaceful and quiet with unblievable views of Florence that we cannot wait to go back.

Excellent hotel a 10 minutes walk from the heart of Florence. Quiet , relaxing place, swimming pool, huge garden and amazing view over Florence and hills. This is one of those places where you feel as you were invated in a private house than in a classic hotel. A perfect place to stay for visit Florence.

We had one lovely night here en route to Siena.

The drive up the hill was a little scary due to the narrow, winding road (and my unfamiliarity with a left hand drive car!). But once we entered the gates and saw the incomparable views over Florence, all stresses instantly vanished. The view from these wonderful gardens is truly sublime.

Next we noticed the understated beauty of the building itself. The photos do not lie.

We were warmly greeted by our gracious hosts and shown around the incredible hotel to our stunning room; complete with a view of course. The furnishings are beautiful - I wanted to take everything home with us!

The hotel has a very inviting lounge/bar where we would have loved to stop for a drink but time was scarce. Instead, we made the 5 minute walk down the hill to a nearby restaurant recommended by the hotel; where we had a very delicious and fun al fresco dinner - a perfect first night in Italy.

The swimming pool and gardens are definitely worth exploring and great for relaxing. If only we'd had longer to enjoy them.

Next time we visit Tuscany we will give Siena a miss and head straight to Florence and this charming hotel. I can think of few things more appealing than what it must be like spending relaxing late afternoons and evenings here after long days exploring the wonders of Florence.

This hotel is a peaceful paradise. The building itself is beautiful and the gardens and view are amazing. We had a great time swimming in the pool and enjoying the property. Our room was spacious and comfortable, but in August the air conditioning was not great and it was a bit warm. They also kindly let me park my car there for an extra night. The extras are a bit expensive -- we skipped the breakfast since we didn't want to pay $20 or more a person (we were with our kids, ages 12 and 15, and they wanted something like $6 for a can of coke. They did, however, send us to a lovely moderately priced restaurant for dinner. the only problem is getting from the hotel to the city -- we did it by taxi which was in the 13 euro range. Overall I would recommend it though.
