A large, comfortable room with an enormous bathroom attached. This was our third stay and it met every expectation. The staff is professional and attentive. The breakfast was generous. The owner helped us on several occasions; she's knowledgeable and available. We ate at restaurants within a few blocks walk and had among the best meals of the entire trip. We... More

Away from the intense crowds bit a pleasant walk to the sites, Villa Antea was very enjoyable. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, the bathroom modern and large, and the breakfast varied and delicious. And the staff was welcoming and so helpful! They have prepared a very useful booklet of restaurants. We only ate at their suggested places and... More

We stayed at Relais Villa Antea for our honeymoon, and it was absolutely perfect. The accommodations were lovely, with large rooms and bathrooms, and the neighborhood was quiet. The owner / staff were also so gracious and helpful with our (daily) questions about the city and nearby day-trips. Wonderful romantic getaway!

This gracious six room Italian villa is located in a quiet neighborhood, and yet reasonably close to the Santa Maria Novella train station (10 euro taxi), with bus stops a block or two away. All the main sights are within walking distance or if you prefer, public transportation is close by. It is popular and books quickly. During our extended... More

Everything about Villa Anteater was satisfactory - the owner and her staff were happy, helpful and outgoing. The room was large and the bathroom gigantic. It was a lovely experience to stay in an old mansion on a quiet street, but still be within walking distance of all that Florence has to offer and have great gelati and food nearby.... More

We stayed at Villa Antea for four nights. The room and bathroom were spacious and comfortable. We welcomed having such a comfortable base to return to after a day's sightseeing. We also welcomed the restaurant recommendations and the kind booking of tables. Our observation was that there weren't enough staff for breakfast duty /housekeeping and there seemed to be a... More

This is a very good quality family B&B. We always look for accommodation hosted by locals that is slightly out of the hustle & bustle of the city. Villa Antea fits this bill perfectly. It is a beautiful property well maintained by the family and yes, it's not in the city center however, it is a pleasant 20 minute walk.... More

We stayed here at the end of a business conference. Because we had tours booked we stayed outside of city centre. It is a bit of a hike to get to downtown but we didn't mind the stroll there and most often took a taxi back because we were too tired. Room was spacious and nice and quiet. Nice courtyard... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This family-run yet luxurious B&B is located in one of the city's most charming neighborhoods, and only 15 minutes walking distance from the old town. With only six rooms, it is not just a bed and breakfast, but a little piece of paradise from where to discover the most authentic Florence. Villa Antea is the ideal choice for a romantic and quiet stay slightly outside the hustle of the city's everyday life. Each room is nicely decorated with satin fabrics and antique furniture. The bathrooms are large, entirely decorated with Carrara marble. A perfect atmosphere to relax before and after a walk in the city. Like a boutique hotel, Villa Antea has bright, cozy and particularly spacious rooms with very high ceilings. Upon your arrival we will give you a map of the city with the main attractions to visit and a little booklet with useful information about the B&B and Florence. Overall, Villa Antea offers our guests all the comfort and elegance of a top class hotel with a personalized attention. We are sure it will be a place you will long remember. ... more   less
