- quite pricey

I have stayed in Torre Di Bellosquardo in August of 2013 for a couple of days. To start with, this is an amazing property, very rare inTuscany (and i have travelled all around it) - huge windows, a lot of light, amazing winter garden. It is also situated very close to Florence, almost a nice hike / walking distance thru the olive garden down to the centre of Florence.

Also very nice pool.

I highly recommend this place

Room Tip: corner suit on the second floor have great view over Florence

I can't imagine a better place to have stayed with my family while visiting Florence than the apartment, "La Casa Rosa," at Bellosguardo. We had the feeling of being in the beautiful countryside of Tuscany, along with the easy access and excitement of the city. It was charming, comfortable, spacious, and relaxing all at once. What could be better than staying in an authentic Renaissance estate, with frescoes on the walls, that is now a luxury hotel? The grounds and views are stunning, and I loved the walk into town, passing donkeys, garden benches, and vineyards. At the bottom of the hill was fantastic gelato, and a pleasant walk to all the famous sights, or taxis and buses if you are tired or in a hurry. We walked everywhere, and then came home to relax in the pool or in the gardens, before going out again- or not. It was heaven, the perfect place to vacation, and we felt so at home. Owners and staff were super helpful, accommodating, and friendly.

If you go to Firenze for a cultural experience then staying at the Torre is the perfect way to fully immerse yourself with a matching 16th century lifestyle. The villa and atmospheric rooms are well suited to the traveller who prefers a magnificent view over Firenze rather than glitz. The staff are hardworking and courteous and the owner , Amerigo Franchetti , and his wife are charming and very much on hand.We had suite number 6 which has huge , high ceilinged rooms complimented by a small but well equipped bathroom . With romantic gardens and a good pool this is the ideal spot for a family stay or a magical wedding ( as we experienced) . Trips to Firenze by taxi take just 5 minutes unless you walk down which is approx 25 minutes. We will most certainly be back next year.

We went with a group of friends and family, we stay for almost a week!!! The feeling of a family house was fantastic, the owners are friendly and very helpful to our needs. The room are beautiful( if you like antics and history). My 2 daughters (and husbands) and me travel a lot from China to South America from Iceland to Africa, Australia and of course Europe.... and we know something about hotel and services...and Torre de Bellosguardo is one of the places we want to go back!!!! Thank you very much for a wonderful holidays!!!!

one of the most exclusive hotels I stayed in my life. I will certainly come back and enjoy the charm.
I felt like living in the 17th century with all the comfort of a modern hotel. The beauty of the rooms and the charm of the personal make forget that Welan is only available in the main room and that in the the room on top of the tower the warm water shower does not really provide plenty of water and that the elevator is rather narrow.
The service is friendly and excellent and despite the many guest very effective and helpful.
You feel part of a family and not just a guest in a hotel.
The price compared with which you are getting seems to me very reasonable
