“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights. The place is perfect, located in the middle of the beautiful countryside, but only 10 minutes from Florence. The owners are attentive to the smallest detail, always willing to help and very friendly. Loved it.

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Villa ill Sasso! The owners are very nice and more than willing to help you with anything you may need from booking tickets for sights in Florence, to amazing restaurants in the area that are loved by locals.
A car is a must as this Villa is located on the outskirts of Florence, which for us was perfect as we got to enjoy the best of both worlds and have fun while trying to navigate our way around the streets of Florence.
We stayed in the Ciampolini suite for 4 nights, trust me, it is even more beautiful then the photos! The overall villa is small, but so warm and lovely with great breakfasts, beautiful antiques, relaxing pool and gardens.

This Villa is a real gem, why stay in Florence when you can wake up in the beautiful Tuscan countryside?!? I am already dreaming of the next time we can come and stay here. Thank you for the beautiful memories Villa il Sasso!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights and had a wonderful time. As many mention this is a small hotel with only 7 suites, but they are of a very high standard, good space and comfortable. The private grounds are maintained to a very high standard and are kept very clean at all times.

The thing that makes this place "special" is the incredibly good service provided by Emiliano and his wonderful wife with so many ideas on where, when and how to get the best experience from your visit.

This is a great location for Florence (take the bus!!), Sienna, Chianti etc with most of the usual Tuscan must sees being easy to reach, and you can access good quality restaurants fairly locally (but all by car). My only negative about the place would be the noise, which I wasnt expecting and hadnt seen mentioned in other reviews. I was expecting a charming hotel set in the quiet hills of Tuscany - I got the charming hotel but their is a noticeable hum from the autostrada at the bottom of the hill, and their is a nearby hospital where you get the usual road and air ambulance noise. This was a bot of a shock at first and it made me think about moving on, but the service and quality of the hotel makes up for it and I am very glad we stayed on.

Room Tip: The hotel doesnt do dinners, but with a little notice can provide lunch - be prepared to travel out...

My wife and I had a great time, while staying at Villa Sasso. We were treated to a beautifully well appointed suite. The grounds were immaculate and the family owners treated us with open hospitality. I would certainly recommend Villa Sasso to friends travelling to Florence.

we stayed for 2 nights, in Ciampolini suite -very special room! it was on the ground floor, with a separate exit to the pool, with a kettle to make tea and coffee for a change! not all hotels have it in the rooms in Italy for some reason.. beautiful decoration and furniture... But- you can hear the people walking on the top floor so if you are a light sleeper better reserve a room on the top floor... and its quit tricky to get there even by GPS but we managed... the staff was very nice, overall a very nice experience!

I am in Florence for business, and just stayed here for the weekend. It is an old villa that was renovated but the young couple. The service is friendly and professional. The villa is in a small hill, they a a nice pool with great views.

Emiliano and his wife have always good tips for restaurants and tours. The rooms are amazing, each one different and with the old charm. The rooms are big, have a lot of character and very clean. The hotel is small 5 or 7 rooms. Everything is beautiful do not miss it.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. The ones on the first floor have an excelent view.

We had the perfect 5 day stay at Villa il Sasso. As all the previous reviewers mention this is a very special place, made even more special by the owners.

My husband booked this as a birthday treat and it was fantastic choice. This is a small hotel with just 5 rooms and lots and lots of character. The place is immaculate and furnished to a very high standard. It has a lovey pool and lots of outside space to sit and relax.

The hotel is located on a small hill about 10 mins drive from the center of Florence. it is at the start of the Chianti highway so plenty of beautiful old villages and vineyards to visit.

The owners are extremely welcoming and really made our stay. They gave lots of recommendations of places to visit and also places to park in Florence, driving in Florence can be traumatic!!! They also recommended some absolutely fantastic places to eat in the evenings, and made all the necessary bookings. We would never have found the places they mentioned on our own. The hotel itself doesn't serve dinner, which we were a little concerned about when we first booked but going out and trying the restaurants they recommended actually became the highlight of the trip.

We had a lovely stay and have already recommended this place to friends and family.
