Villa Sestini is a traditional Tuscan farmhouse, set in olive groves on the hills overlooking Florence. Joanna/Gioanna our host was keen that we enjoyed our visit. She was helpful in advising on how to visit Florence by bus, and where to park the car. She provided information on where to eat in the evening and places to visit and enjoy...

We spent 2 nights at villa sestini with our teenager son and during a 2 weeks road trip. This place was just a nest of tranquility, perfect to relax after one day of visit in Firenze. Our host Giovana is very kind. We recommand.

The, somewhat older, B&B is located on a hill with a beautiful view over Firenze. Own transportation is needed to get around. The owner is very friendly and gives tips to visit/eat. Overall it was a very nice and calm B&B (with swimmingpool). The 1 potential downside is the remote location.

Charming, peaceful Villa with stunning views over Florence. Within easy reach of Florence by car, allowing the flexibility of experiencing the city and the rural calm. The hostess Giovanna is delightful, she made us feel very welcome, keeping us well fed before our busy days scouting wedding venus.

Such a lovely place and host! Spacious room, with a view on Firenze. Quiet surroundings, with a nice trattoria just 10 minutes walking. Firenze 15 minutes by car. Breakfast is great, homemade lemon cake and marmalade. Nice historic place for long or short stay.

Villa Sestini surpassed our expectations. The view over the beautiful Florence is breathtaking - one of the best sunsets I've ever seen. The garden full of flowers, the charming spacious room and the warmth of our hostess charged us with a lot of positive energy. Thank you, Giovanna!
