A few minutes from the historical center of Florence, nestled in the quiet green Tuscan hills, adjacent to the famous Chianti area, rises on the top of a rock (hence the original name of the Villa) Relais Villa il Sasso.A historical residence, that dates back to the 1300’s, as recounted by historical evidence where known Florentine families and friars lived for part of their lives leaving traces of their presence and recognition inside.Villa Il Sasso, now owned by the Concilio Family, has been transformed from a family home into a luxurious residence for Leisure and relax stays as well as business travel or small business meetings. The structure has maintained, deliberately, the intimacy of a home with 'careful and meticulous research in the details, which allows the customer to savor the past and be assisted with care and discretion throughout the whole stay living the comfort of your own home. Specifically, Relais Villa Il Sasso offers bright spacious rooms Elegance and Deluxe, each room is decorated differently with the typical characteristics of the land of Tuscany, from the original brick used in the area, breathtaking view of the country, frescoes, fireplaces and antiques that warm and complete the atmosphere, never forgetting all the comforts that modern life requires as well as intimate and pleasant common spaces such as the HALL and the BREAKFAST room where every morning a buffet is served. Our clients may request the use of a small kitchen, or that lunch and drinks be served at the pool at sunset to be completely pampered with background music. Villa il Sasso has a wonderful winter garden, where you can relax reading a book, watch TV as well as a terrace that overlooks the hills where you can enjoy a good glass of Chianti, even by candlelight.

Emilio and his staff were so friendly and helpful. They gave us some recommendations for some truly fantastic Tuscan cuisine. The pool was a great way to enjoy a glass of wine on a warm summer afternoon. We can't recommend this villa highly enough

I would be interested to hear Emiliano's response to my comments. I would like to offer some constructive criticism. How can one call one's self a 'Hotel' when one fails to offer hotel facilities? I arrived as a single traveler at about 6.30pm. after leaving home at 6.30am. from my home in South Wales, U.K..I am an older lady and had driven from Florence airport...all new territory... and was both tired and hungry when I arrived at Relais Villa Il Sasso. I was greeted by Emiliano who introduced me to my truly beautiful room.I was informed about the 'Sky' T.V. facility and referred to the villa's facilities AKA do 's and don'ts. i asked if I may have a simple snack such as a sandwich. Emiliano suggested that I drive to a nearby restaurant....fine.... I was worn out....how much more 5 star if he'd just organised a sandwich....This set the tone for my stay.... Emiliano....small gestures mean so much more than fake smiles. Please take this on board....I don't understand how somewhere sooo right can go sooo wrong. (Frequent, relaxed and undemanding traveller!)
