“A Marvelous Bed and Breakfast!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Our stay at Villa Il Sasso was perfect! Our room was very quiet, comfortable, and a nice temperature. Also, we were greeted every morning with smiles and hellos from the owners. The breakfast buffet that they serve in the morning has fresh fruits and juices, wonderful hard boiled eggs, nice pastries and buns, yummy yogurts, breakfast meats, cheeses, and much more! It was a pleasure to have breakfast there! Villa Il Sasso is also located on a beautiful hill, and it has a stunning pool, and view from the pool. Villa Il Sasso also has beautiful flowers planted in the front of it. It is very close to the center of Florence, restaurants, churches, and the Boboli Gardens. The owners were very helpful. They also provided us with exactly what we needed. The rooms are cleaned for you, and the beds are very comfy. Also, the room we stayed in, had a beautiful view of Florence! This hotel is perfect for everyone! I had an incredible stay in Florence thanks to Villa Il Sasso!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are a pleasant temperature, have a nice view, are very clean, they have comfortabl...

My wife and I, and a cousin spent six nights at the Villa il Sasso.We attended a wedding in a nearby Villa. The host, Emiliano and his wife could not have been nicer. The villa itself is superb, with a beautiful sitting area. Unfortunately the weather was cold and wet, so we did not have a chance to sit outside by the pool, which looked very enticing. However the hall was covered with a sun roof, and made for a pleasant place to sit and drink. Breakfast was very good, and served in a pleasant dining room. We had as many capuccinos we desired without extra charge. Because of the weather we asked that we have lunch at very short notice one day , and the owner prepared a great lunch of appetizers at minimum cost.
We had room number 1 downstairs near the entrance to the villa. It was nicely furnished, but a little dark. Having a car is a great help, although driving into Florence is difficult. Without a car it would not have been possible to get around. We used this hotel as a base to visit Florence, Sienna and other parts of Tuscany. There were really no negatives, other than the steep driveway to get into the parking lot. I would highly recommend this first class bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: Our room , number 1, was rather dark. Not much sun

We recently stayed at this property with dear friends from London. The owner Emiliano, his partner and all staff were delightful and nothing was too much trouble. The property is wonderful and with only 9 rooms as accomadtdtion it retains a very private and secluded feel. Each evening we asked our host to sugggest a place to dine and all were wonderful ( particualrly Trattoria Donnini). All were local and away from the tourist haunts - in most cases with very limited english. I cant imagine anyone not enjoying their stay. Lounging by the pool after a busy day with a drink or two and a variety of nibbles prepared each evening - how divine. Truly an exceptional experience Regards

We stayed for 6 nights, four of us in four rooms/suites for a golfing trip around Florence. Very nice rooms, quite nicely decorated, excellent beds. Most pleasant service and excellent hospitality. Very good breakfast buffet with the real Italian espresso and capuccino. Owner/president Emanuelino and his wife are extremely helpful. Booking restaurants, changing schedules, speaking very good English. Good recommendations for restaurants. A very nicely located super villa, 15 minutes by taxi from the centre of Firenze. Emanuelino even offered the 5 bottles of sparkling water used from the mini bar! Excellent value for money!

we spent 6 nights here. Great to be at a family owned place where the owners truly care and the overall service was 5 star quality. our room was nice and the bathroom particularly luxurious. beautiful spot that is very convenient to Florence and Chianti. restaurants in the area are very good. 20 mins to Florence by car and easy to park and walk. Just 10 mins away from the Ruffino wine family compound that now gives public tours which is worthwhile.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights. The place is perfect, located in the middle of the beautiful countryside, but only 10 minutes from Florence. The owners are attentive to the smallest detail, always willing to help and very friendly. Loved it.
