My husband and I stayed at Villa il Sasso for 5 days and we enjoyed every second of our stay there. This place was amazing, the view, the rooms, and the service. We had the first room on the first floor mainly because I was pregnant and we didn't want to climb up any stairs. Our room had a view of the pool and over looking the nearby mountains (breathtaking). The room had a high ceiling and very cool for the summer time. The bathroom size was ok not too big and not too small but overall we were very comfortable there. The bed was big, firm and very comfortable (this was huge deal especially when you are pregnant). The staff were great, they helped us with booking wineries and suggested many great restaurants to us and we got many help from them regarding where to park in Florence and where to buy gifts. The breakfast was great as well, it included: fruits, cereals, juices, croissants, Italian pastries, jams, butter, cheese, cold cuts, nutella, toasts, and many options for coffee and teas. If we ever go back to Italy we will definitely spend time at this beautiful resort again.
