For families or families of Friends (as my case) this was the perfect accommodation and absolute ideal location. We needed five bedrooms and in our case wanted on suite baths - that is a luxury in an old villa - and we had all the space and luxury we really needed. The guests were from six countries, with six cultures and a few local Florentine friends came over. It was perfect to cook in the modern kitchen (again - fabulous) and dine one night alfresco and the other night in the most lovely dining room. I cannot encourage you to go fast enough to this villa. It is everything you'll dream of and more. You have the opportunity to be in the city center in less than 20 minutes, easy drives to other cities and feel as if you are far away in the country. Idyllic to say the least! Our host was most gracious to put in food for dinner and breakfast and joined us for a birthday dinner. As we were a most unusual group, I do hope he enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed his - and villa Tantafera. Memories are joyous and another trip is desired in the very near future....

I have done my share of travelling, and I must say this is one of the most amazing places I have had the pleasure of staying at. The host was very gracious and took care of anything we requested immediately. He lived in the states, so his English is perfect. The view from the Villa is like something right out of a movie. You cannot stare at it enough. I had my coffee on the front balcony or the back patio, and could sit there all day. When we arrived the fridge and cupboards were completely stocked, with all the goodies we could have imagined. Wine, cheese, milk, bacon, espresso, etc, etc. I cannot wait to come back and enjoy this amazing magical villa again.

We were fortunate enough to stay at the beautiful Villa Tantafera for a week in Sept. Not only is the property even more gorgeous than it looks in the photos, but it's a great mix of classic Italian-style-meets-modern-plumbing-and-appliances. The house itself is huge and very, very comfortable, with plenty of room for a group to enjoy and entertain.
Roberto as a host is flawless - from welcoming us to the house with prosecco to making sure everything was in perfect order, we were warmly well-looked after by him in all ways, which made our trip all the better.
We would highly recommend the villa if you're looking for a very special Italian holiday.
