Wow! Simply wow!
We recently had a three day wedding in Florence and decided to hire out this hotel for the week of the wedding for our family and friends on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed! We spent a lot of time selecting venues for each night of the wedding but we couldn't find a hotel for our party we felt was right on our visits out there so booked this 'blind' which could have been a disaster - thank god we did! We had visited the Villa San Michele, the Villa Mangiacane, the Villa Cora and the Villa la Massa but none were quite right..
We were greeted on arrival like royalty with the entire team waiting to greet us and introduce themselves which was a great way to arrive - the best welcome I have ever experienced and it gave us real confidence in the team there from the minute we set foot inside the beautiful hotel. From that moment on the hotel just kept on impressing us and surprising us with its quality in every area from the unbelievable dinner they laid on for us on the first night (the best meal I have had in Italy ever), to the way they treated all of our guests, the special non dairy menu they provided for our page boy, the magician they brought out for our friends kids, the amazing spa therapists the cool music which is in the background as you walk around the hotel terrace, the complimentary bottle of brandy they gave us at 4am on the first night when they never told us it was too late or to keep the noise down.. It was simply one of the best hospitality experiences in my life.
The rooms in this property are pure understated elegance and have a sense of rich history without being too antiquated and also have all of the modern amenities you could wish for including a really cool Bose system and TVs hidden in the mirrors. Also the food at every turn was just fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. The property is very elegant and the team there are magnificent making it feel like a private residence rather than a traditional hotel.
Even on departure everything was effortless and They organised for all our excess baggage and wedding outfits to be courier delivered home so we could pack light for our honeymoon. I have not been so impressed with a hotel for some time - thank you to all of the fantastic team for making our wedding week so memorable and special thanks to Sara Orselli who was incredible throughout!
