Torre Di Bellosguardo
Ranked #15 of 411 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 August 2013

We retourned to the Torre now for the third Time in three years and stayed another Ten days in August.
It is probably the Most exclusive Way to spend your holidays in Florence and Even in Tuscany.
The historic Villa ( that means "Palace" or " Castle") is a very Special Place indeed: being situated on Top of the Bellosguardo Hill, it is overlooking Florence since more than 700 years.
You do Not have to visit the Museum in the famous Palazzo Davanzati, this Torre was Build in the Same period and the Frescoes in the small Hall very much resemble the ones in Davanzati. And that is Not by Chance !

Unlike an Italian Museum the Torre offers very attentive staff, service 24/7 hours, a phantastic Swimming Pool and a Lot of public Roms to relax. Indeed the Most striking Feature is the Peace, the calm and the friendliness you encounter.

Having spent hours on the Loggia overlooking the landscape with a phantastic Breakfast Buffet, or in the wonderful Rose Garden, I return relaxed and with a peaceful mind. And that is the only Way I can stand the German spelling Programm on my iPad that makes me Look lika an illiterate.

Room Tip: You should go for a room with a view on Florence.

An oasis in the hills with the most amazing view of Florence. If you don't like crowds, but like unique properties with history and charm then this is for you. I felt like i had my own private home, and the hotel staff are all wonderful. There is no restaurant on site for evening meals, and it is a good walk to town (20 minutes downhill) through scenic vineyards and the hotels beautiful gardens. Note, you need to get a taxi back up at night as they lock the path gate at 7pm but it's a short ride and not a problem, especially as the hotel is so tranquil with the most beautiful views of Florence and the surrounding countryside. The bar is available all evenin though! A truly unique hotel

This remarkable hotel is for any person, couple or even family that prefers simple elegance over amenities overkill. What you get at Torre Di Bellosguardo is a gorgeously luxurious and first rate experience that somehow feels utterly modern (air conditioning, wifi, total cleanliness) and yet timeless all at once. I honestly know of no other hotel like it. Unless you're looking for the spa experience, and the convenience of a restaurant on the premises (there's a lovely breakfast each morning, a light minimal lunch available, and "dinner in" form a nearby trattoria) there is no better option in Florence. Since it's situated in the hills just South of the city, it does take a cab ride or a thirty minute walk in each day, but we found having a retreat in the hills for decompression invaluable, and an unrivaled view of Fllorence is available poolside over a cocktail after a late afternoon swim. Amerigo Franchetti has thankfully made the choice to keep this 14th Century villa as understatedly classy as possible, which projects true luxury and class when most other places take the position that "more is more." Torre Di Bellosguardo is the way to experience Florence.

Dear Guest,
I do not know how to thank you not only for taking the time to write such an exhaustive review but above all for understanding so deeply what Bellosguardo is. You and your lovely family stayed so long that we felt you had become part of the family and were very very sorry to see you leave. We hope you will return and we can have more long conversations together.

Staying at the Torre di Bellosguardo is like staying in an elegant home, not an impersonal corporate hotel. It is easy to walk or take a taxi to the centre of town, but such a delight to retreat to the cool Torre and its delightful swimming pool. Even though there is no restaurant at the hotel, it is possible to have a simple and delicious lunch at the pool or pre-order food for dinner from the truly fantastic La Vecchia Bettola at the bottom of the hill to be brought to the bar of the hotel. The hotel staff are all extremely helpful and appear to be very proud of working at such a beautiful place. The owners were absolutely charming, full of entertaining stories, and obviously take great care of their business/home. Despite the allure of Florence, it is so peaceful and lovely at Bellosguardo that it is tempting to spend the entire day sitting by the pool, wandering the immaculate gardens or hiking in the nearby olive groves. It is a wonderful retreat, but one that is so close to one of the most fascinating cities in the world that there is always something to do. Apparently many of the guests are repeat visitors. That alone speaks volumes about the charm of the place. We will certainly be returning (hopefully soon).

Room Tip: All rooms that I saw were lovely and full of beautiful antiques.

Torre di Bellosguardo, is probably the most amazing place to stay at in Florence. the view is simply incredible, you can see all of the historical center from the swimming pool. enjoy a fun time with the wonderful parrot, or have a nice chat with Amerigo the warmhearted owner. if you have the chance of sleeping in the suite number 6 you will not only have the view from your room, but also enjoy the romanticism of a 15 Century atmosphere with the wall all covered with wood, the coats of arm of the main Florentine family drown on the side and a painting of the dome of Florence on the chimney.

This was the most amazing beautiful place I have ever stayed. The staff is amazing... Very helpful extremely nice and they ensure that everything you need is right at your fingertips! The rooms are incredible. The history on the grounds is overwhelming . This hotel really gives you the Full Italy Experience.... From the amazing architecture to the vineyard to the acres of flourishing gardens. There are many beautiful animals on the grounds to visit...they are all very friendly....especially CocoBello...the house Parrot. This hotel has all modern amenities that you may need including air conditioning... But has not lost its fabulous old charm! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone! Spend some time here and relax in the garden ...pick a peach off the tree... It's just wonderful!!! No need to even leave the property to fully enjoy Florence. Absolutely perfect

We SO enjoyed having such an enthusiastic person as you. We were very moved by all the love you gave to our parrot and to the cats. You showed such a sensitive soul in discovering every secret corner including the vegetable garden. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you write. We so hope to welcome you again in the future.
