There were 9 of us. We met in Rome on a Friday and took the high speed train to Florence on Saturday. Roberto, the villa owner, met us at the station and a great adventure started. As we drove through Florence and then up the hill leading to Tantafera we were awe struck. The house, as in its picture, sits on the top of the hill. But what a hill and what a house. The olive trees, and terranced gardens, and most important of all, the long dining table and comfortable sofas and chairs waiting for us in the garden just off the kitchen door. The house, with all of its modern and new bathrooms and kitchen and comfortable beds has lost none of its historic charm and beauty. Every moment you knew you were in a very special monument to historic Florence. We arrived in the middle of April and were very lucky with sunny, mild weather. In our short week we saw the garden begin to come to life and cannot imagine how beautiful it will be in the summer. We hope to return, and maybe the olive trees will be bearing their wonder fruit.
Beautiful property beautiful views
We had our wedding at Villa tantafera and it was perfect. The house is beautiful and spacious and the views and gardens are picturesque. Best day of our lives!
Memorable and wonderful - countryside luxury so close to Florence!
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Tantafera last week. We were a party of 8 and everyone had their own bedroom, spread across the many floors of this fantastic estate. Roberto is an exceptional owner who knows exactly how to welcome and help guests with just the right amount of attention. The kitchen was carefully curated with all the appropriate Italian necessities (cheese, breads, meats, tomatoes, wine) to get us started. Roberto provided us information on private chefs (Graziella) and drivers (Giuseppe), both of which we used. Highly recommend having someone cook at home so you can enjoy these amazing surroundings! Giuseppe took us on a day-long wine tour that was the most memorable part of our trip. Not to be missed! You can’t really walk to anything from this villa, so using a driver is helpful and eliminates hassle. Even though we had two cars with us, we only used them for countryside excursions. Highly recommend!
A wonderful place to stay. Close enough to Florence to drive in easily every day if you want but far enough to feel away from it all. Villa itself is fantastic. Modern luxury mixed with the original feel of the place. The villa is separated so that every room is extremely private. Hosts were wonderful as well. Very highly recommended.
We had such an amazing time at the villa. Everything was clean and the villa was in such great condition. Obviously very well taken care of. The location was exactly what we as a group of six were looking for. Close to the center of Florence ( about a 20 minute drive) yet removed from the bustle. Quiet with views over the city. Gorgeous gardens with old growth olive groves. Stunning surroundings! Roberto is just the nicest and most helpful guy one could meet. He is very proud of his property and it shows. He was very accessible by text or e-mail during our stay.
We will definitely be back! And we will be recommending this villa to friends and family!
Gratzie mille Roberto!
