Ape Rosa was born in a Florentine villa from the late 18th century, entirely restored during the past two years. The restoration has maintained both structure and atmosphere, but also provided the necessary modernization of the facilities. We are situated in proximity of the city centre and are easily reachable by car and public transport. Ape Rosa is the ideal choice for businesspeople in need of a bit of relax after a day's stress, and for tired tourists looking for an easy retreat before and after their peregrinations in and around this masterpiece of a city.
In the fountain of the villa there is the possibility to have a refreshening bubble massage in summer or a hot bath in winter. The price is for 2 persons per room, then if you make a request for a group, the price will be reducted then it is!
Great property and Elena and Paolo were great hosts. It was our holiday before baby arrives and looking forward to taking baby there when he/she arrives!
The villa is truly amazing with careful attention for every detail.
Each of the rooms has a unique feel.
My entire family (4 couples + 2 kids) stayed there for a night and we all wished we had reserved more time in Florence just to seep in the lovely atmosphere of the villa.
The reservation was canceled 13 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Paolo is AMAZING!!! He is such a nice person and his wife Helena is a very good woman. I had some issues with Airbnb payment but after calling Support and talking to Paolo and Helena as well, they were kind enough to let Airbnb take care of the issue. The room is fantastic! The bed is really comfortable and the furniture is beautiful and classic! I enjoyed every moment there.
After Paolo give me the directions, we took a bus on the train station and found the address in less than 20 minutes, really easy.
The breakfast is incredible, ALL you can imagine! Fruits, juices, coffee, tea, milk, eggs, ham, cheese, salame, cake, cookies, yogurt, cereal... Really delicious!
Very nice room and very helpful, bus is close to B and B and easy to get downtown.
Schöner Aufenthalt in stilvoller Umgebung. Das Personal war freundlich. Das Zimmer war dem Preis angemessen. Frühstück angenehm. Gute Anbindung an den Bus, ruhige Umgebung, der Whirlpool war ein weiteres Highlight. Ein sicherer Parkplatz. Der Ausgeh-Tipp "fratelli briganti" war unser kulinarischer Höhepunkt in Italien.
WiFi Internet (wie anscheinend in Italien typisch) seehr langsam.
Nice stay in stylish surroundings. The staff was friendly. The room was at a reasonable price. Breakfast pleasant. Easy access to the bus, in a quiet environment, the hot tub was another highlight. A secure car park. The advise to go to the restaurant "fratelli briganti" was our culinary high point in Italy.
WiFi Internet (as seems typical in Italy) was slow as molasses.
Overall our visit to Florence was a bit disappointing due to the crowds and unfriendly people, but this villa was a nice safe haven. I wish we had spent more time at the villa than around Florence.
The villa and our room were very lovely, the paintings on the ceilings and the detail were especially impressive. The only qualm I had was that it was busy with so many other people staying there, the pool fountain was always in use and there were children screaming at breakfast, it wasn't very peaceful and private for my new husband and I. If you are looking for somewhere private, I suggest that this is not the place unless you are there in off season and no one else is there.
Beautiful, old, historic building. Paolo and his employees were very nice. They welcomed us very nicely and we had a beautiful room.
We stayed in this wonderful villa for 4 nights at the end of May 2012. Our host Paolo and all the staff were welcoming and helpful. The charming character of this beautiful villa offered a quiet get-away from the rush of the city center. It had convenient access to the city bus #4 which connects in about 12 minutes to all of the major buses, trains, tours, and bike rentals at the main station. The interior art and furnishings were beautiful. The decor also included these amazing wall murals. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The breakfast was enjoyed both in the dining room one day and out in the patio area with a view of the large garden area on the other days. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone who was visiting Florence or the Tuscany area.
I saved Ape Rosa as the highlight to our Europe trip and we were not disappointed. The villa was beautiful and Paulo, Ana and Marco were excellent hosts. The room was beautiful, the grounds and common areas were out of a dream. Breakfast was elegant and everyone so respectful. We will stay there again when the opportunity arises. Thank you Paulo and staff.
