Gorgeous grounds, superior views. The entire staff provides excellent service. They are willing to go beyond the call of duty with a smile. Our room was very well serviced twice daily. Breakfast is very fresh with large selection. Van service to and from downtown is convenient during in-climate weather (or if your feet are tired). Definitely one of the most beautiful hotels in Florence in the perfect location away from city noise. Hans and Jill

We had a fall wedding at the Villa and I can’t say enough about the hotel and staff. It was a fairy tale wedding with the unbelievable view of Florence from their terrace and the staff was exceptional. The restaurant manager oversaw the menu and service with a 5 star rating. Hotel rooms were beautiful and had every amenity you needed. Front desk personal helped with all our requests. And Alina, the event coordinator/manager was absolutely an angel. She and my daughter arranged everything through emails and an occasional call. We could not of done this without her guidance, attention to detail, kindness and unending enthusiasm. Our guests raved about the venue and food. An absolute success. Thank you to all at the Villa la Vedetta.
