We stayed at Villa Antea for three nights from 18 to 21 January and genuinely couldn't fault our time there. The rooms are glorious with huge bathrooms, comfortable beds, quality bedlinen, a mini bar with snacks and tea and coffee making facilities. Florina serves up a wonderful breakfast every morning with the most delicious coffees. The leaflet and map we were provided with on arrival were a hugely helpful touch and there is always someone on reception during the day to ask questions of. Likewise being able to borrow umbrellas during an unseasonably wet period was invaluable.
Walking into the centre of Florence is easy and takes about 15 minutes. Alternatively there are good bus routes for those who have walked themselves to death! Take the bus just around the corner to Piazzale Michelangelo for the most spectacular view of the city.
There were a number of restaurant recommendations which we chose from and weren't disappointed. Be sure to visit the Queen Victoria restaurant just before you reach the Ponte Vecchio for the most amazing gelato.
The only problem with our break in Florence was that it was too short. We hope to go back some day soon and would definitely stay at Villa Antea again. It will be like going home. Thanks to everyone there for making our stay so comfortable and for being so welcoming.
