Our bathroom was in serious need of updating - shower cubicle had black mould which was surprising in a property of this quality.
The building, rooms and grounds are beautiful - would have been lovely to eat breakfast outside if weather had been better. Owners friendly and informative. Bus stops outside property every 15 mins or so to take you into central Florence or take a taxi - only cost us 9.5 euros. Free parking in grounds was a bonus. Pastries at breakfast were very good. Liked upstairs chill-out room with views, TV and free tea and coffee. You can also eat a take-away pizza here and buy some wine if you don't want to go out. Resident cat very sweet.

Josephin the house owner was extremely nice to us and provided useful information to explore Florence. Location was just outside city centre and there was a bus station right at villa's door. Free parking, plenty choices of breakfast. Will come again!

Amazing atomosphere combining Italian and African style in the middle of Florence and incredible hospitality. The hosts made us feel like home and went beyond and above to help us solve travel challenges we had. Looking forward to go back "home" in warmer weather and enjoy Florence again.

Nothing to write about
Excellent location, just a few bus stops from the city center. The owner of the valla Antonio is always friendly and ready to help. Relaxing area with a beautiful view on hills with a glass of wine leaved one of the best impressions from the trip. Perfect place to stay for family.

This beautiful villa is located in one of the best spots in Florence! Rooms are cozy and with an authentic Tuscan vibe! Antonio is a formidable host, friendly and helpful in every situation! A nice bus stop is conveniently located just outside of the villa's main gate! I spent some quality time with my girlfriend here and we will definitely come back in out next trip to Florence! 5 stars B&B

Location is excellent. 1 km from entrance to historic Florence. Bus stop outside the gates. Beautiful villa with an excellent host, Antonio, will make your trip to the city a great experience. Parking was important as we were driving through Italy and La Sosta has a private, secure space for no additonal charge. Wifi worked great. Rooms were clean and spacious. We were travelling with 2 young children and this was a perfect stop. I will stay here again the next time we visit Florence.

You need a cab for reaching the centre, the showerhead was fixed on the ceiling for this reason it was a bit difficult not to wet the hair taking a shower (very minor issue!!!)
The rooms are spacious and comfortable, huge relax area with great view on the city, convivial breakfast, the owner Antonio is always ready to solve a problem or give suggestions for a good restaurant, adorable fluffy cat owns the place

Nothing to write home about. If you like walking like we do mind that there is some climbing on the way back to the villa. There is a bus, however, and the owners can provide you with tickets.
Staying at a charming villa where the owners live themselves. Lots of useful advice on where to go that really helped us. A quiet cosy place without all the hordes of tourists around. Free parking on site. Different niceties like an option to keep the car at the villa for some ours after checkout or providing guests with umbrellas.

Everything. Very good position, just 5 mins by bus to the city center (Museo dell'Accademia). Parking. Wi-Fi. Shared room for dinner or relaxing. Will come back!

All perfect, keep these standards thank you and see you again

The breakfast was good but after 5 days we were looking for some eggs. Would definitely stay there again.
The hosts Josephina and Antonio were very informative about the Chianti wine region and some local restaurants in which to dine. The upstairs atrium was a great place to meet other guests. We took a short bus ride from their house to downtown Florence (bus stop right by the house) and having a car made side trips easy.

Everything was perfect and Antonio was a very good n' informative host..

For people who like privacy and long sleep the sharing atmostphere during breakfast and the openness of the villa might need some getting used to. Starting 6.30 there was activity in the house with people going to breakfast which you can hear in the room but depends on personal preference. Personal taste but not a big issue: Not recommendable for people with animal allergies given they have cat/dog around and if you leave door open then cat will run into your room.
Already enough has been written about the fantastic hospitability of Antonio and his sister - great hosts, can only add that he recommended a fantastic restaurant in town Fiesole nearby where we had excellent steak with view over Firenze, many thanks again. Breakfast is simple but was sufficient for us, great espresso basically enough by Italian standards :) Villa itself incl. the shared room upstairs fantastic, distance to city with bus easy to manage, just need to inform about bus times upfront (and can buy bus tickets from Antonio directly). Had trouble finding right number in the street given both car integrated navi as well as google maps had the number in a total different spot that made it a bit difficult in beginning to find, which is of course not the Villa's fault.

Nothing, everything was perfect.
Staff was very friendly and helpful with our requests. House is a great setting with both antiques surroundings and modern enough for comfort. Bus stop right outside the house.

Nothing in particular. Some small details, but they are well compensated with all of the +++++
Our stay there was exceptional and the owners of the villa (we met both) have contributed a lot to it, they were extremely welcoming helpful and treated us not as another set of guests, but gave a feeling of being "special" guests, although we stayed just for 1 night. The villa has a special atmosphere. It is located on one of the hills of Florence in a quiet area among other villas. The bus stop is just next to the villa gate and in some 10 min will get you to the city centre, but it is also possible to walk (20 min). Also, very useful, there is place to park your car safely. In addition, you can enjoy evening drinks or breakfast on the terrace or when the weather is not so nice, relax in the attic lounge room. The villa shows signs of time, do not expect something extremely posh, but that's exactly the beauty of it and if you want to have a memorable stay in Florence - this is a place to be. We would come back, I'm sure. Thank you, Josephina and Antonio!

Everything was just perfect, but most of all the very helpful and sweet owner Giuseppina. If I ever visit Florence again, I'll definitely choose Villa La Sosta for my stay
