Our stay of 4 nights was a disaster. It was extremely hot and despite having an air conditioner in the room it did not work and we were advised that nothing could be done about it. Our family of 4 did not sleep at all for our 4 niight stay. The villa could be promising, but it is clearly evident... More

The owner and her son - that both still live on the property were very rude and let you know that they DO NOT WANT you there. It is a beautiful home, but they do not want you in it and it is so obvious that the only reason they are doing it is that they need the income. They... More

My daughter (teenager) and I spent 5 nights here in late May 2012 and enjoyed it very much. A beautiful historic building and grounds, owner and staff person were very pleasant and helpful.

After reading some of the bad reviews about this place on the internet, we were a bit worried before we arrived. But then, everything turned out to be a very positive surprise, and we very much enjoyed our 3-nights stay at Villa Ulivi. It has an ideal location, it is decorated in a very special and beautiful style, and the... More

Gorgeous villa situated on a large well maintained property. It is elegantly decorated just on the outskirts of Florence. The city is accessible with the bus stop at your doorstep or an easy half an hour walk . Our room was very spacious and comfortable with an amazing view of the Tuscan hills as a back drop. We enjoyed our... More
