I may probably feel as one of the lucky ones, because after reading all the negative reviews, I feel like I have been to a different Villa that other guests are describing. It was maybe 3 years ago or so, it was beautiful summer in Florence and the villa was a wonderful place to stay. Quite, surrounded by gardens, animals... More

This was the worst vacation rental we have ever had in Italy, it actually surpassed many 3rd world accommodations. Most of the electrical plugs, washer, balcony canopy did not function. No screens, lots of mosquitos tormented us all night long. All the insulated glass seals failed years ago, making the views opaque. Our shower was about 5' tall and sloped... More

I was exceedingly fortunate to have gotten out of this rental due to the owner's decision to give my suite to another family, moving my actual check to a day later. He had provided me with "a comparable room" for 30 euro less, but upon entering the room, I found a stained dirty carpet, sagging beds, broken air conditioner, stale... More

I rarely write a bad review. I generally give the benefit of the doubt to hotels and restaurants. But this case is quite an exception. Tis was one of the worst represented establishments I have ever visited. Far from being close to the city, far from being welcoming or comfortable, this place is in poor condition, quite distant from the... More

The villa is very nice, the lounge is decorated with lots of antique furniture. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom was fully covered in travertine. The terrace and the garden are very nice to sit in the evening. The breakfast in the morning was good (bread, ham, cheese, yoghurt, toast and cornflakes. ) The city can be reached by... More

Is not near anything....so we walked a lot. Rooms were poorly appointed. Attendant Lee was very helpful yet could see that she was stressed with responsibility to take care of everything. The owner was rude and her son useless. We were lucky that they had overbooked so we were transferred to a hotel in Florence which turned out to be... More

If you are looking for a relaxed, step back in time place to stay, you might like to try the Villa Ulivi in Via Bolognese Florence. The beautiful grounds, the sweeping staircase and friendly and helpful stay made our stay a wonderful experience.

Villa Ulivi is a pretty good option for the price. Not close to downtown, but the bus runs pretty regularly during the day and is fast (at night we took cabs, a bit expensive but more convenient). Our room was huge and it was nice to stay in a place with huge grounds, a quiet escape from the city. I'd... More

We stayed at the Villa Ulivi from 13th to 16th July 2012 whilst visiting the Mugello MotoGP. The villa is beautiful and very quiet. The air con in our room was totally ineffective which was a bind in 33 degree heat. There was no hot water for showers after 9pm. The young lady we dealt with was very pleasent and... More
