“Great ancient atmosphere, excellent location”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

Only a literally centuries old building has the charm and style of one. Points for Bellosgardo! The location is excellent, on a green hill with splendid views of Florence. The walk to town is only 15 minutes!
The staff is extremely friendly, which makes you feel even more at home. I very much recommend this place to all those who can afford it.

Dear Guest,
Many many thanks for your kind words. Above all we love and try to safeguard beauty. It can be old and linked to history or totally modern. The important thing is that it is in good taste and has atmosphere. We hope you return.

I am so in love I want to get married here. What else can I say?!
History
Art
Sincerity
A retreat from the bustle of Florence but only a 15-30 minute walk away.
The staff were very professional, helpful, & friendly.
A groomed Garden of Eden on a mountain top. Rose gardens, raised vegetable gardens, iris lined perfectly manicured lawns & bushes, a pool, majestic trees & stone walls, lily ponds, waterfall & streams, olive grove… I want to live here.
So much time & love has been placed in restoring &" improving" this property.
This is not a modern hotel with a steam shower, but it smells like roses & is like a fortress heaven.
We Americans were forced to relax in a lovely hot bath because we didn't have a shower curtain.
Coco Bella, the parrot was great fun.
We cannot wait to come back.

Room Tip: Even the bottom floor has a great view.

It's pretty hard to get teenagers to be impressed by anything, especially anything old, but my two were awestruck the moment they walked into Torre Di Bellosguardo. They spent an hour exploring the gardens and meeting the animals. This hotel is truly special and we all felt very lucky to have stayed there.

We had room 15 which is a suite with a small anteroom where two twin beds were set up for our children. Our view was of the hillside and it was so beautiful it almost didn't seem real. We sat on the terrace the night of our arrival and shared a bottle of wine and watched the sunset - I'll remember that evening forever.

This is not a hotel for people who like to hang out in a bar and see/be seen but it is perfect for people who want a bit of history, a lot of beauty and an experience like no other. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Views of the city (our taxi driver gasped when he saw the view -- and he's a local!) on one side...

We returned and everything was as wonderful as before. The staff is friendly and the setting cannot be matched. The views (and fresco) alone are worth the trip. For people who do not want a corporate, soulless hotel and want a unique place in Florence.

This was our second visit to the unique Torre Di Bellosguardo visiting this time with family aged 10 - 80. We enjoyed our stay enormously. The hotel must have one of the most beautiful views overlooking Florence. The enormous villa is historic and has been sensitively restored so guests can enjoy living in a wonderful setting. The gardens are expertly maintained with interesting botanical species and gorgeous colour and texture. The hotel is 20 - 30 mins walk to the central Arno river through a lovely olive grove (with donkeys in the field). We were very well looked after again - with help when needed but otherwise left in peace to enjoy these beautiful, tranquil surroundings.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have amazing view but you could mention that this is important when you book. The...

We decided to experience life, just outside Firenze's frantic tourist bustle. Troop out 25 minutes from the airport into the hills which afford uninterrupted views of the city centre,cathedral and roofs of the town.. Its one way to do that while still enjoying the beauty of the city.

An elevation to the south Arno provides the best outlook. As the name implies.... Bellosguardo... a place where the loveliest postcard motifs have been photographed..... where painters have captured the panorama in oils. For a trip back in time,in fact to Galileo Galilei's time,this is the essential space to enjoy an atmosphere of history,nobility and bohemian life.

Frescoes,busts... every room is a museum in itself...its sumptuous,and deeply esoteric in furnishings and collected accoutrements. Very refined with a distinction in quality and colour fusion.
But don't get so carried away by the antique interior that you forget to look through the windows of the tower to admire Florence lying at your feet. We had a double room,as a bounty for a heavy travel schedule. By the way, the pool is set in a park of its own with a panoramic view,of course. Breakfast was extra,but who is going to pass up the opportunity to not linger on the sun dappled terrace. This is the amex of stays in and around Florence

We arrived late one night with no reservations, and didn't actually stay here, but I felt compelled to write a review. I was so moved by the villa itself, and David at the desk was so helpful in finding us another hotel. He invited us to come back during the day to see the grounds, which we did, and even though it was a rainy day, it felt like heaven. Wonderful to have this peaceful lovely place so close to the historic center of Florence.
