Villa La Vedetta
What We Love
- Daily breakfast is included in the Jetsetter rate
- The service. In a hotel as small as this (18 rooms), the management can afford to be picky about who they employ, and it really shows
- Incredible views high above central Florence
- Large pool that’s perfect for cooling off after a day of culture (open April to October)
- Rooms are the definition of Italian decadence
- Hotel concierge has a wealth of local knowledge and off-the-beaten-path recommendations
What To Know

How to Get There
We had a fall wedding at the Villa and I can’t say enough about the hotel and staff. It was a fairy tale wedding with the unbelievable view of Florence from their terrace and the staff was exceptional. The restaurant manager oversaw the menu and service with a 5 star rating. Hotel rooms were beautiful and had every amenity you needed. Front desk personal helped with all our requests. And Alina, the event coordinator/manager was absolutely an angel. She and my daughter arranged everything through emails and an occasional call. We could not of done this without her guidance, attention to detail, kindness and unending enthusiasm. Our guests raved about the venue and food. An absolute success. Thank you to all at the Villa la Vedetta.
We stayed at Villa La Vedetta from October 19-22. We were attending a wedding there so we thought we would treat ourselves to a $450 per night room. The room had all kinds of issues and in desperate of a renovation. Water would come up through the floor whenever we ran a bath or shower. The views are great from the property and the food is good but not worth half of what we paid. Cab rides into the city were between 20-25 Euros. It would have been much better to stay in the city in a 4-5 star hotel for half of the price.
the position the view, the dinner and the service, outstanding, a fabulous memory !!!
