This up-market Bed & Breakfast Villa is located in the hills to the South of Via dell’ Antella and A1 Motorway at Ponte a Ema, to the South-East of Florence. It is sign-posted from Via dell’ Antella.

It is a very secluded site, with off-street parking in a gated courtyard. The bedroom suites are enormous well appointed rooms. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is adequate with good coffee and free WiFi is provided.
Thank IanGH

We hired out the whole of Villa il Sasso for the 4 nights before our wedding which was taking place nearby, so that both bride and groom's families could stay together before the big day. Choosing Villa il Sasso was one of the best decisions we made - the place is utterly beautiful, and the rooms (we got to see all of them!) were gorgeous, particularly the main suite on the ground floor. The pool and jacuzzi were fantastic, and the whole place felt luxurious and peaceful. Breakfast had everything you could want, including meats, cheeses, pastries, homemade jams, great coffee etc.

The staff were also wonderful, and no request was too much for them. Emiliano, Francesca, and Paolo were wonderful, and really looked after our family so well. In what can be a stressful time before a wedding, they all made sure everything was perfect which meant we were all so relaxed. A special mention to Francesca in particular, who helped me a lot in the lead up to our stay, and who arranged some catering and car hire for us, and was so attentive in ensuring we had everything we needed.

Grazie mille e speriamo di tornare subito!
Thank Sarah C

A green oasis in the outskirts of Florence! Unique place with high end accommodation (we had the 70sqm suite, Ciampini, with Tuscan fresco's on the walls and additional exit to the garden and swimming pool), great breakfast served in the garden and 2 amazing hosts: Paola and Francesca. They were extremely helpful and friendly throughout our stay (advice, planning, reservations and restaurant bookings each night). Grazie mille le ragazze, fu davvero un piacere conoscervi! there are only two little things that need adjustment in my view: the internet coverage in the garden and the opening hours for the swimming pool (they close it at 8pm). It would be nice to be able to swim later at night during those very hot summer days.

we stayed there for 8 nights in the beginning of august and traveled with our daughter of 6,5 years.

Emilio and his staff were so friendly and helpful. They gave us some recommendations for some truly fantastic Tuscan cuisine. The pool was a great way to enjoy a glass of wine on a warm summer afternoon. We can't recommend this villa highly enough

From Brenda and Alan Booth. - This Villa/Hotel provided a wonderful place to stay close to Florence but in a really peaceful setting. The 7 bedrooms are all a little different from each other and provide all the usual amenities. The owner and staff were so helpful and friendly making our stay there very special. We would definitely recommend it to others.

A few minutes from the historical center of Florence, nestled in the quiet green Tuscan hills, adjacent to the famous Chianti area, rises on the top of a rock (hence the original name of the Villa) Relais Villa il More Sasso.A historical residence, that dates back to the 1300’s, as recounted by historical evidence where known Florentine families and friars lived for part of their lives leaving traces of their presence and recognition inside.Villa Il Sasso, now owned by the Concilio Family, has been transformed from a family home into a luxurious residence for Leisure and relax stays as well as business travel or small business meetings. The structure has maintained, deliberately, the intimacy of a home with 'careful and meticulous research in the details, which allows the customer to savor the past and be assisted with care and discretion throughout the whole stay living the comfort of your own home. Specifically, Relais Villa Il Sasso offers bright spacious rooms Elegance and Deluxe, each room is decorated differently with the typical characteristics of the land of Tuscany, from the original brick used in the area, breathtaking view of the country, frescoes, fireplaces and antiques that warm and complete the atmosphere, never forgetting all the comforts that modern life requires as well as intimate and pleasant common spaces such as the HALL and the BREAKFAST room where every morning a buffet is served. Our clients may request the use of a small kitchen, or that lunch and drinks be served at the pool at sunset to be completely pampered with background music.

I would be interested to hear Emiliano's response to my comments. I would like to offer some constructive criticism. How can one call one's self a 'Hotel' when one fails to offer hotel facilities? I arrived as a single traveler at about 6.30pm. after leaving home at 6.30am. from my home in South Wales, U.K..I am an older lady and had driven from Florence airport...all new territory... and was both tired and hungry when I arrived at Relais Villa Il Sasso. I was greeted by Emiliano who introduced me to my truly beautiful room.I was informed about the 'Sky' T.V. facility and referred to the villa's facilities AKA do 's and don'ts. i asked if I may have a simple snack such as a sandwich. Emiliano suggested that I drive to a nearby restaurant....fine.... I was worn out....how much more 5 star if he'd just organised a sandwich....This set the tone for my stay.... Emiliano....small gestures mean so much more than fake smiles. Please take this on board....I don't understand how somewhere sooo right can go sooo wrong. (Frequent, relaxed and undemanding traveller!)
