Once a private Villa, today a 5 star luxury boutique hotel with 18 rooms and Suites, Villa La Vedetta offers guests magnificent views of Florence from its regal hilltop position on Piazzale Michelangelo and just a few steps from Ponte Vecchio. Neo-Renaissance in design and augmented by modern and stylish décor, this romantic villa looks and feels like a gracious countryside retreat, yet it is only a short walk, drive, or shuttle ride to the urban excitement below. Passing through the italian garden you reach an impressive swimming pool overlooking the city where guests can enjoy the lush landscape in comfortable chaises longues tasting a wide variety of appetizers and cocktails from the Pool Bar. Each room is elegantly furnished and decorated in a different color, which is repeated in the fine marble and mosaics in the bathroom creating a soft, chic environment where the antiques are tastefully blended with contemporary interior design. All luxurious rooms have a bathroom with Jacuzzi and boast glorious views over Florence or the hotel’s private garden. The hotel also offers free internet point & wifi, parking, sauna, shuttle service to the city centre, Lounge Bar and a stylish restaurant where you can taste the most typical specialties of Tuscany cooking. The magnificent terrace decorated with tables, armchairs and umbrellas is an ideal location for banquets and magical parties.The Villa is also available exclusively for weddings and corporate or private events.
