We stayed here for 5 days, 6 nights and we can not recommend it highly enough. The staff were friendly and gave personalised service that is impossible to get at chain hotels. The restaurants recommended were also off the beaten track and made the whole Florence experience a memorable one. We had a lousy start to our vacation with our flights being re-routed due to the volcanic ash and our luggage being lost but once we got to the hotel everything changed and went smoothly. It says a lot when you go to a place tired and in a bad mood then just 5 minutes after checking in you are a happy person.
The breakfasts are great: cereals, cheeses, croissants, toast and coffee, orange juice. you can also have eggs if you ask for it from the kitchen. The room was comfortable and elegantly decorated, with a big shower room.
Being a comfortable distance away from the city centre is also a bonus. It is only a few minutes walk to the tourist sites, but far away enough to make you feel like you are experiencing "the real Florence". You also get to know the place a bit more -- its sidestreets and amazing restaurants/shops you wouldn't have been able to discover if you stayed in the city centre where they churn out mediocre tourist stuff. Will definitely come back!

- This family-run yet luxurious B&B is located in one of the city's most charming neighborhoods, and only 15 minutes walking distance from the old town.

The bathrooms are large, entirely decorated with Carrara marble. A perfect atmosphere to relax before and after a walk in the city. Like a boutique hotel, Villa Antea has bright, cozy and particularly spacious rooms with very high ceilings. Upon your arrival we will give you a map of the city with the main attractions to visit and a little booklet with useful information about the B&B and Florence.
