“a perfect place to stay in Florence”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Villa Antea was the perfect place to stay in Florence. It is away from the crowds and tourist areas so it allows you to feel like you live in the city! It is within walking distance to all of the main sights and fabulous restaurants. The bathrooms are enormous and the beds super comfortable. The rooms are very large. The level of service was outstanding. Florina takes care of you at breakfast and makes delicious eggs, coffee and hot chocolate, in addition to the great spread that is available. Restaurant recommendations were outstanding. In fact, we had a spread sheet of suggested restaurants from Villa Antea and refused to stray from it because they were all so fantastic and not in tourist areas. It is worth staying here for that list alone! We would love to return!

We stayed in this B&B for one night only but was very impressed.

Firstly this is a very small (6 rooms) family owned hotel situated in an old XIX century building.

Once entering the building, you come into a very beautiful hall with ancestors paintings on the walls and gorgeus front staircase.

Our room on the first floor was very big comparing with other B&B in Italy. The room was decorated with mouldings and frescos and partly furnished with antique furniture.

The room also has separate cloak-room and very spacious bathroom with window. Bathroom equipment was excellent.

What is really importnant for us is the fact that the room was equiped with electric keetle and everything for making tea.

The only minus which is not very important for us is TV set - it's really small for such size of the room. We even didn't notice it in the beginning.

The breakfast served in the dinning room on the first floor was Italian typical but very simple.

Room Tip: before booking, check the hotel's web site. They post last minute offers sometimes.

Villa Antea is amazing. We were not prepared for the level of service, beauty of the surroundings, and hospitality we discovered. After staying in a B&B in Rome that proved to be uninspired, despite rave reviews on line, we had low expectations. We were blown away by this house. On arrival, everything was perfection. While the location is a bit out of the center, local public transit is excellent, and really, Florence is an entirely walkable place. The buffet set out each morning was beautiful with a bountiful selection of meats, cheese, pastries, and cooked eggs upon request. The dining room is gracious, offering comfort and refinement. The bath in our room was grand and luxurious. I would stay here again and would recommend Villa Antea to everyone.

This place is pretty far from the main attractions, however vey safe and quiet and it is a great place for a nice stroll to main areas. The staff are all very helpful and great to give advices, the property even have a bible of Florence given to you for restaurants, sights etc.

The property itself is spectacular, very spacious, clean, and needless to say, it was very memorable for us. Rooms are extremely spacious, nicely decorated, bathroom is almost as huge as the bedroom it is amazing!!!

What a great stay it has been for us!

I spent two nights and really enjoyed sightseeing there. Staffs are very kind and gave me some advice for restaurants. The location is a bit far from central station, but in a quiet residential area. within 10 minutes by taxi.

This gorgeous home was the perfect location for our Florence visit. A short walk, which we loved, took us into city center, or one of many superb restaurants. The staff, from the owner, to the reception and Florina, who cooked, cleaned and answered all of our endless little questions, were all wonderful. Great directions and recommendations. The room was scrumptious. High ceilings, huge comfortable bed, and the best bath of our european holiday. Enjoyed a hot soak every morning, before a delicious breakfast, complete with cappuccino. Stay here and enjoy the finest hospitality in Florence.

Room Tip: The executive room has the huge bathtub, but the rooms in the back are off the street, so a little q...

I stayed there just for a night with my girlfriend and had an amazing experience with Villa Antea. The room was amazing, flawless, and had every amenity we needed. The service was great and they were very helpful with pointing out places to go, restaurants to try, sites to see (even provided a map and guide). It was a very intimate and home-y place to stay, even if for only one night. I would highly recommend staying here. It truly enhanced my week long visit to Italy!
