Reviewed 3 August 2013

If you're looking for an authentic Tuscan experience close to Florence, Villa il Sasso is a perfect option. The villa is beautiful and sits on a wonderful property with a pool and luxurious relaxation space. The rooms are gorgeous, spacious and comfortable. It is a family run villa, with hosts that are extremely welcoming and accommodating. Highly recommend!

We stayed at the Villa il Sasso for two nights in early July. We had two rooms as we were traveling with our three adult daughters who shared the second room. The villa is beautifully restored and elegantly furnished with antiques, paintings and accessories in a very European style. The location was a short drive into Florence and about twenty minutes from the Florence airport. This allows you the convenience of being near Florence while still being able to experience the beauty and feel of Tuscany. The girls room (which was the two story lofted room) easily accommodated the three of them, and our room was also lovely and spacious with a large bathroom. The breakfast served on the patio was superb and one of the nicest spreads we had on the trip. The croissants are made fresh each morning on site and literally melt in your mouth!! There is a lovely pool and hot-tub area with gorgeous Tuscan views. Emiliano was very warm and welcoming and attentive to all of our needs. Villa il Sasso would be perfect for a wedding or family group as there are nine rooms. All was very clean with modern baths.
My only suggestion to make things perfect would be to add a full length mirror to our room and don't forget the bathrobes! (the girls room had bathrobes but for some reason ours did not)
In summary, this is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Florence or Tuscany. Would highly recommend and would return again!

In the beginning of July we had a great two-week vacation in the Villa. Because of it's central location in Tuscany, and only a ten minute drive away from the centre of Florence, we were able to make lots of nice and interesting trips troughout Tuscany. The owner(s) of the Villa were very kind and helpfull with tips for the best possible experiences.
The Villa, it's pool, rooms and services are all of the highest standard. We would recommend Villa il Sasso to every one who is travelling in or through Tuscany. There really isn't anything we would like to be changed or improved. In one word: Perfect!
If we ever go back to the same region in Italy, we surely will visit Villa il Sasso again.

Our adult family of three chose to stay in villa style accommodation to retreat to after long days of visiting all of the wonders of Firenze. Our hosts, Emiliano and his wife made us feel very welcome and special for our four night stay. Our room worked perfectly for us with upstairs bedroom and spacious bathroom and a downstairs double sofa bed and small dining table. We loved the style of blending modern with antiques and felt 'at home' whenever we walked in the room and the entry of this family owned and run villa. Breakfasts fresh, European and plentiful. Room and entire villa fresh and clean. Pool area refreshing and inviting. Transport by bus directly to city is just down the hill and short road. We would highly recommend a stay at Relais Villa Il Sasso. Emiliano, we thank you for having us...

This was really a nice place to stay. Excellent located just outside Firenze, it's about 10-15 mins drive to the center where we left our car in a car park.

Service is excellent, our room was huge and breakfast is nice.

really an ideal place to stay if you want to visit the area of Firenze.

Our stay at Villa Il Sasso was perfect! Our room was very quiet, comfortable, and a nice temperature. Also, we were greeted every morning with smiles and hellos from the owners. The breakfast buffet that they serve in the morning has fresh fruits and juices, wonderful hard boiled eggs, nice pastries and buns, yummy yogurts, breakfast meats, cheeses, and much more! It was a pleasure to have breakfast there! Villa Il Sasso is also located on a beautiful hill, and it has a stunning pool, and view from the pool. Villa Il Sasso also has beautiful flowers planted in the front of it. It is very close to the center of Florence, restaurants, churches, and the Boboli Gardens. The owners were very helpful. They also provided us with exactly what we needed. The rooms are cleaned for you, and the beds are very comfy. Also, the room we stayed in, had a beautiful view of Florence! This hotel is perfect for everyone! I had an incredible stay in Florence thanks to Villa Il Sasso!

My wife and I, and a cousin spent six nights at the Villa il Sasso.We attended a wedding in a nearby Villa. The host, Emiliano and his wife could not have been nicer. The villa itself is superb, with a beautiful sitting area. Unfortunately the weather was cold and wet, so we did not have a chance to sit outside by the pool, which looked very enticing. However the hall was covered with a sun roof, and made for a pleasant place to sit and drink. Breakfast was very good, and served in a pleasant dining room. We had as many capuccinos we desired without extra charge. Because of the weather we asked that we have lunch at very short notice one day , and the owner prepared a great lunch of appetizers at minimum cost.
We had room number 1 downstairs near the entrance to the villa. It was nicely furnished, but a little dark. Having a car is a great help, although driving into Florence is difficult. Without a car it would not have been possible to get around. We used this hotel as a base to visit Florence, Sienna and other parts of Tuscany. There were really no negatives, other than the steep driveway to get into the parking lot. I would highly recommend this first class bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: Our room , number 1, was rather dark. Not much sun
