Villa Saulina
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Lastra a Signa
Reviewed October 7, 2010

A family of four wanting to stay outside Florence, we booked in advance and paid about £100 per night B&B all in. We were given two adjacent executive rooms on arrival and these rooms would not disappoint anyone. They were next to one of the two pools, had a quiet garden area and suited our needs perfectly. The breakfast was sufficient and we generally took dinner in the hotel which was good. The terrace restaurant was lovely EXCEPT FOR THE ENORMOUS TELEVISION BLARING OUT INANE GAME SHOWS - WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?????? The setting is gorgeous and it is very convenient to get into Florence on the train - the station is only a Km or so down the road.

My friend and I had a great time at VS. The main building, the villa, has a bar room with a cute balcony right off of it. When we arrived, she from Vienna and me from Boston, we sat there and were treated to wine and an appetizer. We then had a superb dinner at their restaurant. On one sunny day, we hung around the pool and they ordered lunch for us, delivered from a local pizzeria. The staff was very helpful. Youssef the receptionist, went with us to a local winery, San Michele a Torri, where we sampled and learned about their wine. On last day they had workers working on a water problem but they turned it on for 15 mins so that I could take a hot shower! Very close to Florence but you need a car as the local train is a few miles away. The only thing that could be improved would be the breakfast which was okay, basic stuff. Great, comfortable and lovely place!

My husband and I had our wedding at Villa Saulina in September 2009. We had 50 friends and family come out to the Villa for the wedding. We all had the most amazing time at Villa Saulina.

The surrounding views were straight from a postcard - exactly how you would imagine Tuscany to be. The Villa estate was gorgeous with the grapevines and olive groves, sparkling pools overlooking the hills. All rooms were immaculately clean and fresh, decorated in a rustic style with a modern edge, and all had beautiful views.

The service was the best I have ever experienced. The staff could not do enough to help us and all our guests, they really did go beyond the call of duty to make sure everyone was happy and it was always in a friendly manner and with a smile.

The food in the restaurant and served at our wedding was superb; excellent quality authentic italian cuisine.

Overall we could not have asked for more for our wedding. I think Villa Saulina will be the place by which I judge all future holidays...which will now have alot to live up to! We will definately go back to Villa Saulina in the future for a relaxing break.

Wow, What a great place to stay. We just loved the setting, the views were incredible and the staff very nice. The accomodations were roomy and clean and very comfortable. Josef, one of the hotel staff was so nice and informative. We enjoyed his stories and knowledge of the region. A holiday we will never forget. A+++++

Fabulous stay. Food was superb and very reasonable. Generally, I'm disappointed with a location if I can't eat out in different restaurants but for our 3 nights here, we enjoyed eating in the restaurant each night. Produce was so fresh and local. Wine great.
Staff, extremely friendly and eager to help with anything. We did not have a car so arrived to the train station and were picked up by the hotel. Enjoyed the pool, clean and the surrounding view of Tuscany hills and vineyards.
Will definitely return.

We booked our four night stay at the Villa Saulina because of the remoteness and location in the countryside - we weren't disappointed!

After driving three and a half hours from Rome Airport (which was good fun in itself!) we arrived late afternoon in sweltering heat to an excellent welcome by a chap who spoke perfect English. As our room was in a converted farm building we loved the surrounding scenery.

The room contained a large dresser, bedside tables, safe, TV and minibar (the bottled water was extremely reasonable). The queen size bed was actually two singles pushed together but this was not uncomfortable. The bathroom/wetroom was huge with a lovely shower.

The restaurant was of excellent quality, and we eat there three out of the four nights - make sure a table is booked, more than one couple were embarrassed by assuming they could just find a table. Most guests made an effort to dress smartly, except a few who stood out like sore thumbs (mentioning no nationalities!). Good food for a good price, the house wine was actually produced on the premises and was amazing.

Tours of the farm were on Wednesdays, so we managed to arranged a visit to San Michele a Torri about 15 mins drive away. A guided tour was 10euros which also gave the chance to taste about six or seven of their wines and their other produce - bread, olive oil and meat.

Over all a great location, nothing to complain about.
