“Beautiful villa”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

We booked this villa for our honeymoon and was not disappointed . We wanted a place which was quiet and just outside florence. When you arrive at the villa you are immediately struck by how beautiful it is and how well it is looked after, the room we had was amazing. Breakfast was all you needed and lunch if required. We spent a few days relaxing around the pool and immaculate gardens, very peaceful. With 2 small towns only 25 mins walk it easy to find a nice restaurant , get the number 32 bus into florence was a easy. What made this hotel special was the level of personal touch, i have never felt so welcome before in a hotel, nothing was to much trouble. The staff and managers are first class.

We did enjoy our stay in the villa. We were there to do a Chianti trip with vespa's. The owners did arrange everything and dit the impossible to let it work in the best way possible.
The hotel itself is like coming home. It's an hotel with the best service and cleaning couldn't be done better. We will go back!!

The Hotel Relais Villa die Sasso is a historical residence dating back to the 14th century. Taking into consideration the history of the building and with a lot of love for details, Villa di Sasso has been renovated and accommodates guest form everywhere. For us it was the perfect week-end hotel to discover Florence, which is only 10 minutes away by car. Service was good, break-fast excellent. The rooms, in their typical Tuscan style, are rather dark. But this is only a small minus.

We've just stayed for 5 nights here and it was exactly what we hoped for. Beautiful accommodation, incredibly friendly and helpful staff, great location.

The villa is 45 minutes from Florence by local bus, making it a peaceful retreat but also close enough to go into town each day.

The only thing that was a problem was the Mosquitos, they're everywhere in Tuscany so make sure to take repellant.

If you're looking for an authentic Tuscan experience close to Florence, Villa il Sasso is a perfect option. The villa is beautiful and sits on a wonderful property with a pool and luxurious relaxation space. The rooms are gorgeous, spacious and comfortable. It is a family run villa, with hosts that are extremely welcoming and accommodating. Highly recommend!

We stayed at the Villa il Sasso for two nights in early July. We had two rooms as we were traveling with our three adult daughters who shared the second room. The villa is beautifully restored and elegantly furnished with antiques, paintings and accessories in a very European style. The location was a short drive into Florence and about twenty minutes from the Florence airport. This allows you the convenience of being near Florence while still being able to experience the beauty and feel of Tuscany. The girls room (which was the two story lofted room) easily accommodated the three of them, and our room was also lovely and spacious with a large bathroom. The breakfast served on the patio was superb and one of the nicest spreads we had on the trip. The croissants are made fresh each morning on site and literally melt in your mouth!! There is a lovely pool and hot-tub area with gorgeous Tuscan views. Emiliano was very warm and welcoming and attentive to all of our needs. Villa il Sasso would be perfect for a wedding or family group as there are nine rooms. All was very clean with modern baths.
My only suggestion to make things perfect would be to add a full length mirror to our room and don't forget the bathrobes! (the girls room had bathrobes but for some reason ours did not)
In summary, this is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Florence or Tuscany. Would highly recommend and would return again!

In the beginning of July we had a great two-week vacation in the Villa. Because of it's central location in Tuscany, and only a ten minute drive away from the centre of Florence, we were able to make lots of nice and interesting trips troughout Tuscany. The owner(s) of the Villa were very kind and helpfull with tips for the best possible experiences.
The Villa, it's pool, rooms and services are all of the highest standard. We would recommend Villa il Sasso to every one who is travelling in or through Tuscany. There really isn't anything we would like to be changed or improved. In one word: Perfect!
If we ever go back to the same region in Italy, we surely will visit Villa il Sasso again.
