“Unique stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This place is pretty far from the main attractions, however vey safe and quiet and it is a great place for a nice stroll to main areas. The staff are all very helpful and great to give advices, the property even have a bible of Florence given to you for restaurants, sights etc.

The property itself is spectacular, very spacious, clean, and needless to say, it was very memorable for us. Rooms are extremely spacious, nicely decorated, bathroom is almost as huge as the bedroom it is amazing!!!

What a great stay it has been for us!

I spent two nights and really enjoyed sightseeing there. Staffs are very kind and gave me some advice for restaurants. The location is a bit far from central station, but in a quiet residential area. within 10 minutes by taxi.

This gorgeous home was the perfect location for our Florence visit. A short walk, which we loved, took us into city center, or one of many superb restaurants. The staff, from the owner, to the reception and Florina, who cooked, cleaned and answered all of our endless little questions, were all wonderful. Great directions and recommendations. The room was scrumptious. High ceilings, huge comfortable bed, and the best bath of our european holiday. Enjoyed a hot soak every morning, before a delicious breakfast, complete with cappuccino. Stay here and enjoy the finest hospitality in Florence.

Room Tip: The executive room has the huge bathtub, but the rooms in the back are off the street, so a little q...

I stayed there just for a night with my girlfriend and had an amazing experience with Villa Antea. The room was amazing, flawless, and had every amenity we needed. The service was great and they were very helpful with pointing out places to go, restaurants to try, sites to see (even provided a map and guide). It was a very intimate and home-y place to stay, even if for only one night. I would highly recommend staying here. It truly enhanced my week long visit to Italy!

Villa Antea is the ideal base for a stay in Florence. Although fifteen minutes walk from the station and twenty from the Duomo, it adds to the experience to get to know the city by walking.
The villa itself is first rate. The beds are outstanding, comfortable and attractive. Showers are vast and unfailingly hot. Breakfast is a treat, varied, fresh and plentiful. What more could one want?

The Villa Antea proved to be as good as its reputation. The room was luxuriously appointed and very comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and all the staff were attentive, very helpful and extremely friendly. We shall certainly stay again on our next trip to Florence.

This was our third time to the Villa Antea and we only wish we had more time. The rooms are very large and well appointed. You will not find a better bathroom in all of Europe. It is a home with a grand marble staircase leading up to the rooms with beautiful art decorating the walls. Breakfast is very pleasant and we especially enjoyed eggs cooked any style. We sent our children here on their honeymoon as well and they loved it.
They arranged our transport from the train station to the hotel and back as well as booked our reservation to the museum Academia to see the statue of David so we had no lines getting in.
They are easy to correspond with by email and most accomodating for your every wish.

Only six rooms, not just a B&B, but a little piece of paradise from which to discover the most authentic Florence.Like a luxury hotel in Florence, Villa Antea has bright, cozy and particularly spacious rooms with very high ceilings.
