“First class villa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I had a great time, while staying at Villa Sasso. We were treated to a beautifully well appointed suite. The grounds were immaculate and the family owners treated us with open hospitality. I would certainly recommend Villa Sasso to friends travelling to Florence.

we stayed for 2 nights, in Ciampolini suite -very special room! it was on the ground floor, with a separate exit to the pool, with a kettle to make tea and coffee for a change! not all hotels have it in the rooms in Italy for some reason.. beautiful decoration and furniture... But- you can hear the people walking on the top floor so if you are a light sleeper better reserve a room on the top floor... and its quit tricky to get there even by GPS but we managed... the staff was very nice, overall a very nice experience!

I am in Florence for business, and just stayed here for the weekend. It is an old villa that was renovated but the young couple. The service is friendly and professional. The villa is in a small hill, they a a nice pool with great views.

Emiliano and his wife have always good tips for restaurants and tours. The rooms are amazing, each one different and with the old charm. The rooms are big, have a lot of character and very clean. The hotel is small 5 or 7 rooms. Everything is beautiful do not miss it.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. The ones on the first floor have an excelent view.

We had the perfect 5 day stay at Villa il Sasso. As all the previous reviewers mention this is a very special place, made even more special by the owners.

My husband booked this as a birthday treat and it was fantastic choice. This is a small hotel with just 5 rooms and lots and lots of character. The place is immaculate and furnished to a very high standard. It has a lovey pool and lots of outside space to sit and relax.

The hotel is located on a small hill about 10 mins drive from the center of Florence. it is at the start of the Chianti highway so plenty of beautiful old villages and vineyards to visit.

The owners are extremely welcoming and really made our stay. They gave lots of recommendations of places to visit and also places to park in Florence, driving in Florence can be traumatic!!! They also recommended some absolutely fantastic places to eat in the evenings, and made all the necessary bookings. We would never have found the places they mentioned on our own. The hotel itself doesn't serve dinner, which we were a little concerned about when we first booked but going out and trying the restaurants they recommended actually became the highlight of the trip.

We had a lovely stay and have already recommended this place to friends and family.

The Villa is nice and comfortable. Very relaxing, small and quiet. Great view from the poolside garden. Spotless and the best feature are the people working there. Very friendly, helpful and professional.
Everything was beautiful. We spent the beginning of our honeymoon there and it was great. It is perfect if you want to visit Firenze and Chianti both. It is situated @Bagno a Ripoli - so it is between Firenze city and Chianti. The rooms are different and very nice.

My husband and I and three daughters, ages 12, 13 and 15 enjoyed a wonderful stay at Villa il Sasso. After a day filled with sightseeing in Florence, arriving back at the tranquil Villa Il Sasso was a pleasure. We rested by the refreshing pool overlooking the Tuscan hills and then thoroughly enjoyed the recommendations for dinner in authentic local restaurants. Breakfasts were lovely, the rooms were spotless, and the attention to details made for a wonderful stay. Yet what made this stay one of the highlights of our trip was the exceptional service provided from the moment we arrived. We highly recommend staying at Villa Il Sasso.
