Beautiful property

  • 3 of 5
Gorgeous grounds, buildings, vineyard, pool and views. The room/apartment was lovely, the kitchen was utilitarian but functional. The bathroom was a tight squeeze with no tub, terribly outdated and poorly maintained. A bit of a disconnect compared to the rest of the spacious and beautifully furnished living area.
It is NOT a comfortable walking distance to the center of Florence (appx 3-4km) and unless you are proficient driving in the city, taxis are required.
A bit overpriced, but if you like a quiet getaway at the end of the day, this is hard to beat. Breakfast was a bore. Maybe they do better during the high season but they can't really call this a bed and "breakfast". There are meals available for lunch or dinner but you must request it and be specific.
If I could recommend an improvement: provide information on the property, it's amenities and availability of services. Anything that was asked for was willingly arranged but nothing was explained or offered up front. I enjoy discovery but when time is limited, it's nice to be able to plan a dinner or wine tasting.
The day manager was excellent and her staff very helpful.

Owner's Response: Dear Elizabeth,

Thank you for your review. We are very surprise with your review as you and your husband seemed very happy upon your check-out. We understand what you mean about the properties bathrooms, but please be aware that it's a historical villa and like many other properties within the center and around Florence are protected by the "Beni Culturali" and permits are very hard to acquired to do any remodeling work or any construction at all. We are very sorry if the maintenance of the property was out of place, maybe one of those days you were there they had started with the winter wrap-up, meaning at this time of the year historical places are required to follow some guidelines to protect the property before winter falls, I think this is why you might have found things out of order that day during your stay. We guarantee you that at other times the property looks spotless and organized.

Regarding the distance we are always very clear with all our guest in the advert is written 3.5 km and car: raccomended. This is because the villa sit on a hill in one for the most exclusive areas of Florence, this is stated in our advertising.

I think you expected a 5 star service, but we are just a Bed &Breakfast in a stunning location ok, but just a simple B&B because of this lunch and dinner are on request.

We apologies if the services and experience didn't meet you expectations. I can assure your that our manager and staff are very professional and helpful.

Please Let us know via mail, how can we may better serve you on your next visit to Florence, it will be a pleasure to host you again and make you a better experience.

Kind Regards,
Giulia & Villla Team

Car: recommended

The heart of Florence is only 3kms away from here so, it is easily accessible by car, taxi or bus, we recommend a visit on foot to Old Bridge, passing through the characteristic streets of the area.

The narrow hilly roads separating Villa from the city center offer a welcome retreat from the noisy traffic, apparently for the benefit of air quality and tranquility of the area.
