Nestled on the green hills around Florence, yet only ten minutes away from the historic centre, the Relais is housed in a splendidly restored 14th century villa, close to prestigious Ugolino golf club. The hotel, which features coffer ceilings and terracotta or marble-chip tiled floors, is beautifully decorated and extensively frescoed. Relais Villa il Sasso offers exclusive accommodation with all modern comforts in 7 lavishly furnished rooms with antique pieces and precious paintings, named after the noble Florentine families who dwelled in the villa. A swimming pool, a grove and a private chapel add to the loveliness of the property and contribute to make a relaxing break there absolutely unforgettable. Romantic dinners or working luncheons can be arranged on request, to taste the specialities of Tuscan cuisine. Escorted shopping service and a tourist guide are also available.
