Our family stayed at this lovely property. Nice buffet breakfast included.
Staff very helpful courtesy and friendly.
If you are looking for a small, quite and quaint boutique hotel, this is the place!!!
Location was perfect and lovely views from every corner of this property. Book well in advance, it has only 18 rooms!

Room Tip: Im sure all rooms have a nice view. Our room was corner room #101

We paid £300 a night at Villa La Vedetta. We were in the annex in a room with no windows - just a glass door. The room was run down, dark, no wifi and rather small. I thought it was incredibly overpriced. The rest of the hotel was lovely and the food was outstanding.

Room Tip: Request a room in the main building - I presume these rooms are what is advertised on the website.

Dear StephEddyRichards, we are sorry that the experience with us was not what you expected. The rooms located in the annex, called Romantic, represent the standard category, that you booked. As described on all web sites they are around 21 sq. metersand the ones located on the ground floor of the annex have no window because they come with a small and intimate patio, were you can seat to sip a drink or read a book.
We are happy though the you loved our food and the rest of the property.
We hope to welcome you again and remain

Sincerely

Antonio Dondiego, Manager

My buddy had his wedding here and I was blown away. Even if not getting married here the hotel screams high end and relaxing. Whether you are pool side or on the terrace I would like to stay here next time I'm here.

Stayed: September 2017

My husband and I live in Canada and decided to get married at Villa La Vedetta in Florence after seeing pictures of the hotel in a magazine. Having never been to Florence, we needed a lot of help with vendors, transportation and someone to marry us. Planning a wedding can be stressful but planning one from overseas in a place we've never been was definitely a challenge..until we found Alina. Alina is the Event Manager at Villa La Vedetta and the most helpful, organized and wonderful person we had the pleasure of dealing with.

Alina recommended excellent vendors and an officiant to work with us, answered a million email questions we had, organized every little detail on the day (including space for the Bridal party to get ready in). She was our lifesaver and we would never have had our more than perfect wedding day if it wasn't for her! It was quite windy on our wedding day and the staff were able to move the ceremony location seamlessly and without disrupting any of the guests. The servers and bar tender were spectacular, so kind, accommodating and a dream to work with.

The venue itself is breathtaking. Coming through the beautiful front gates down the tree lined path, the beautiful ivy covered hotel sits in front of you at the foot of a serene garden (perfect for an intimate wedding ceremony). As you walk into the main entrance, there is a library/sitting room on one side and the reception on the other. You can see straight through to the back terrace. Walking out onto that terrace for the first time, all I could think was the pictures didn't do it justice. It must be the most beautiful view in Florence. We used a room on the second floor for myself and the bridal party to get ready. Everything from the washroom, to the beautiful big bed and the double french doors that open onto the private terrace was beyond what we could have expected.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience at Villa La Vedetta. Every detail was just perfect. We cannot wait to go back and visit Alina and the staff. This place will always hold a very special place in our hearts and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to share our special day in such a wonderful place with our friends and family.

Room Tip: Definitely recommend a second floor room with a private terrace over looking the garden!

I have just returned from four nights at the Villa La Vedetta Hotel in Florence. IT is a small hotel with 18 rooms and provides discreet luxury. Everything worked seamlessly, the shuttle bus picked us up from Pisa Airport with no worry or waiting and there was a latter awaiting us with the exact time to be taken back at the end of the holiday. The room was spotless and all the food we ate there was lovely (the hotel serves complimentary tea and pastries at 4.00 each afternoon)but undoubtedly the best thing about the hotel was the extraordinary view from the garden across Florence and the Dome. There is a lovely pool so you can plan a morning of sightseeing with a relaxing afternoon dip in the heat of the day

Room Tip: If you can afford it one of the suites has "the view"
