  • 15 euros per person to visit a garden that takes 5 minutes to do this time of year. The lawn is weed, has some beautiful hedges and the view is beautiful. Access is difficult for narrow roads from 2 directions. The statues and fountains should be restored and preserved, which is not the case. The price is extremely high for what is offered. It would be nice to offer a glass of vino santi to tourists outside or allow visit home, maybe this would be worth the ticket price.

  • I called today to see if I could, with my partner, visit the villa to assess whether us our wedding. On the phone they told me that I could go again today (Sunday) but to talk of prices I should call Monday. Then I went to visit the villa on Sunday and the Lady at the entrance said to visit the villa for a wedding I should have come by appointment only during the week, asking otherwise 15 euros each to visit on Sunday. Obviously we came away disgusted by the treatment. Congratulations you have lost a marriage.

  • Just outside Florence is a beautiful villa with garden and a view that will live with you forever. Go here and enjoy, exhale and sup in Villa's history. Wander around the extensive gardens where it is "ögonbedårande". The view, a bit up, gives you a panoramic view that can easily end up in the top three. You don't have to be a garden expert, just be able to enjoy something beautiful that lives on in you long time ... The month of June was warm, but the garden flaunted and cool spots in the shade, there was ample. And Yes, for the wedding is absolutely wonderful!

  • Incredible estate and view: a must-see on the outskirts of the city. Cost is 15 euro per person, however it is worth the expense. This gigantic estate possesses many architecture and landscape treasures that you discover as your meander the property. No tours are offered, you must walk around for yourself. Access to the house's interior is not permitted, but there is plenty to do otherwise.
  • We arrived June 21 approximately one in the afternoon with my whole family and we waited an hour and a half by the gate until' a housekeeper finally opened up ,she spoke no English and directed us to the front desk where Raymond and Luca had a worker show us to our villa.we couldn't drive our van up to the villa , so they asked us to walk , with our luggage up a hill where we would stay for close to 3 1/2 weeks. It was extremely hot that day and when the door opened to the villa the air condition was broken all around the house there was bugs everywhere and water was dripping from each corner of the ceiling to the floor. The swimming pool in the back was filled with leaves bugs dirt same with the tables and chairs. The Wi-Fi was ripped from the walls and was not working at all lightbulbs were missing and the door lock was broken. By the time a representative came up to see the house it was almost sundown kids were starving we drove three hours from a different part of Italy. At this point we were getting very nervous for the children and ourselves so I proceeded to take pictures and asked the kids together in one room and try to sleep for the night , we had some snacks thank goodness. Finally about 7 o'clock woman Antonella arrived with her boyfriend who did not work there and they were very rude and actually scary and intimidating. They looked over everything and then left us there in those conditions. After the hellish night we woke up to see our children filled with bugs all over them crying on their toothbrushes on their face everywhere in the bathrooms and the bed and the and the couch we slept on. We put everything back together in the truck and we just spoke to the front desk and said we were leaving and we'd like our deposit back and they said absolutely not, because of the cancellation agreement. They tried offering us another villa but it was also in the same condition. so we said we would contact American Express and requested a dispute and moved on to a better place that day. We spent the rest of the time in Italy and enjoyed it immensely and made the trip a lot better for our children and our family. The man Luca explained that he's the son of the owner and he's in a lawsuit with his dad which is 94 years old . So he said he would give us $2500 out of his own pocket because he admitted the place was in bad shape . we spent that night and there holding $6000 which was our deposit. I will be sending pictures of the Villa to put on their site so other people don't get trapped the way we did. The family there are the worst people we've ever met in our lives and they make Florence Italy look horrible. If Luca would stand by his word in giving us $2500 back out of the $6000 at this point would be helpful. We used our savings to take this trip with my family and we would be very thankful .
  • Spectacular villa in the outskirts of Florence
  • The view it's amazing. One of the most beautiful gardens in Tuscany.
  • Incredible outdoors and views of Florence. Indoors need a bit of a face lift, bathrooms especially
