Bottom line - this B & B has a first rate management and an excellent staff. Diletta did everything possible to make us comfortable! This began with her prompt and courteous replies to my many emailed questions, as I planned our return visit to Florence and the vicinity.
I chose the Villa Antea because we planned to have a rental car and make day-trips to various hill towns from Florence. Most of the comments about the Villa you will read on tripadvisor are spot on and the photos are accurate.
Our ground floor room #1 was spacious and quiet. There was plenty of room in the closet and drawers for our 8 night stay and an in-room safe. There were no comfortable reading chairs in the room, however. The king-size bed was comfortable and the linens were fine. Wifi was available.The large bathroom had a spacious shower but no tub, which I would have enjoyed having after a long day of marching around. (I do see a tub on the website, if this would be a preference.) There was a small magnifying mirror to the side of the sink which had a very wide rim for your toiletries, but the lighting, coming form the high ceiling, was not very effective.
Breakfasts were adequate - yogurts, fruit, sweet rolls, excellent coffee, some cheeses and meats, eggs, if you wished, served in a lovely salon with a very nice selection of subdued music.
We were very happy with our choice, and, yes, I would recommend this B & B to my best friend!
