“Wonderful honeymoon experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2011

We visited Tenuta Le Viste in June 2011 for four days and it was a fantastic experience. Alexandra, the owner, looked after us above and beyond what she needed to. We paid for the Michaelangelo Gold experience which also included dinner at the hotel and at nearby Michelin star restaurant La Tenda Rossa. The whole hotel was beautiful and the view of Florence was amazing. It was peaceful, quiet and the perfect place for us to take a few days away together on our own. The food at the hotel was lovely and the meal at La Tenda Rossa was extraordinary (8 courses!). Having no transport, Alexandra and her family very helpfully ferried us around to local restaurants and such when taxis weren't available. Plus there are two amazingly friendly dogs called Turbo and Diesel that just add to the experience!

Awakening with a soothing chorus sound of birds just before the dawn breaks. Soon the sun rises. You open the window and that scent of fresh and sweet air softly surrounds your whole body. You take a deep breath. The smell of the air is that of Firenze but it is more than that. It is the smell of Tenuta Le Viste. It is unforgettable and you have to be there to enjoy it. The hotel has a very large garden with olive trees. The two dogs, Diesel and Turbo are well trained and quiet, and they will guide you for a tour around the garden. The room Michelangelo was wonderfully arranged with very beautiful views of the garden and the downtown Firenze. Breakfast is very nicely prepared in a room with view of the garden. Alexandra, the manager of the hotel, is always there to help you for a comfortable stay and advice for your trip. Her ability to go one step beyond when you need it is greatly appreciated. My wife and I highly recommend this place for your next travel. I shall always remember the stay.

A truly beautiful, postcard location . The Villa is well appointed and the grounds are beautiful with magnificent views of Florence from this hilltop retreat.

The staff were friendly and the food was above average. This Villa is well out of Florence so a car rental is required unless you want to rely on cabs which can be expensive. Driving in Florence is challenging and will test your nerves.

And now to the mistress of the house who we came to know as Cruella DeVille. Dealing with and relating to guests is not her forte. She is cold, matter a fact, and at no time makes you feel at home. In fact quite the opposite. Her whole motivation appears to be ensuring you are at the Villa as little as possible. So if you are looking for a property to hang out, enjoy the grounds, and just relax this is not for you.

My husband and I felt very spoiled by staying in such a great place. The charm of Tenuta Le Viste was everything we wanted. A small quiet Tuscan Villa on the hills near Florence. The rooms were extremely clean and very elegant. They had thought of everything from cotton swobs to a scale in the bathroom...Nothing was left out. The Villa always smelt great. The grounds had a charming feel with great views of the city, pomegranate trees and hills of the olive groves. The service was friendly and always had a smile. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. My husband felt guilty that a such a large variety of food was put out on the breakfast buffet each day. We would love to come back!

Alexandra Ern and her husband (chef) provided the 6 of us with the most memorable experience of all our travels in Italy. The villa was more beautiful than we expected and Alberto provides a marvelous dining experience. The olive grove and vineyards and the view of Florence from the terrace make this spot truely a lovely Tuscan vacation. Peace and quiet in the evenings and only a 20 minute drive to the center of Florence. With only 4 rooms, you have the chance to "own" the villa for your stay. Alexandra, Alberto and Joanna make you feel like family. The breakfasts are to die for!!! We had no negative comments to make about this charming italian villa, nestled in the hills overlooking Florence. They connected us with a wondeful van service for our many day trips to various cities in Tuscany. We can't wait to return. We have told all of our friends that this is a "must" stay in Tuscany.

My husband and I just returned from a three week trip to Italy. It is our sixth time traveling to this beautiful country. We had reserved a room at La Tenuta Le Viste for four nights. Our expections were high and we must say the place exceeded them all. We stayed in Michael Angelo room. Very spacious. Immense bathroom. The entire property could be rated 5 stars. The staff made sure we were well taking care of. We had dinner on premises two nights and I must say we felt like royalty. The food was amazing, the service topnotch and the view of Florence breathtaking. The owners, Alexandra and he husband really went out of their way to make us feel at home. To go to Florence, we simply drove the car 5 minutes, park at the bus station, took the bus and ride for 20 minutes, then we were in Florence. Very convenient. I would return tomorrow. A romantic, quiet little piece of paradise!

  • Liked — The friendly staff, the room, the location, the huge pool
