“A piece of paradise”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

Home in our cold Netherlands, we are dreaming of Villa Il Sasso.
Don't think the perfect hotel does'nt exist, we found it.
The owners of this hotel, a charming young couple Emiliano and Gaia will do everything to make you a perfect pleasant stay.
We had a fantastic room, romantic decorated and absolutely spotless, like the whole hotel.
You can easily reach Florence by car or by bus and take trips to the wonderfull Chiant area.
Did'nt want to leave this peacefull place for long trips, only half a day trips and then relaxing by the pool and enjoying the beautifull view.
Just order some wine and you will be spoiled with all kind of snacks.
This hotel has no restaurant, only light lunch, the owners can give you nice tips for restaurants.
We really enjoyed every minute in this fantastic hotel and had a perfect stay.
We can truly recomend this hotel to everyone who loves peacefulness ( only seven rooms) in a charming ambiance.
We hope to visit Villa il Sasso again!

Look to the photo gallery - not enough for you? ... Very good location, ancient villa with a most modern equipment. You can sit by the pool and enjoy glass of wine or a cocktail. Are you hungry? Although hotel does not have its restaurant a nice sandwich can be ordered according to your wish... Do you feel that I am too positive? Well, everyone can always find anywhere something what is not just perfect. But why to do it when you can feel great without doing it? This place is very close to perfect and I am sure that we will return!

Everyone who ever travels can only hope you will find and experience a B&B like this one. What a hidden gem! The owner, Emiliano, was so welcoming and helpful. Always made you feel at home when you started your day with a nice breakfast in the elegant dining room or returning after a long day touring the Tuscan wineries. The whole place is wonderfully decorated with large common areas giving the feel of a much larger facility. The rooms are very big, nicely decorated, quiet and clean. The grounds were perfectly maintained. Location was excellent to tour both Florence and the Chianti region. Great overall experience and value. My wife and I appreciated the effort made by Emilano and Gia in making our four nights stay so perfect. Hope to return someday!
