                    Lovely setting overlooking Florence. Beautiful gardens. Easy bus trip to city centre.

                    Staff don't speak english but we were able to cope.

                  • Family with children
                    9.2

                    The gardens & the countryside. Warm, family atmosphere. The nuns were very friendly & hospitable.

                    The fact that guests had to be back before 10:30 at night.

                    Very clean and well kept monastery

                    Lack of air-conditioning and 24x7 front desk

                    We did not realise this was a guest house run by nuns who kindly suggested a curfew of 10.30 in the evening - we requested a later arrival time which was fine. Despite a language barrier they were helpful and welcoming. The grounds were stunning and the views of the countryside and views of Florence were beautiful. It's a 30 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio (all down hill) offering more amazing views.

                    The lead nun was amazing! We joked with another guest that she was like MacGyver! The food was very nice. The gardens were amazing and we enjoyed them very much. If you are going to Florence to tour, you will find this a bit out of the way (but can easily take a bus to town, etc.) If you are looking for a place to get away from the city, this is a lovely choice.

                    We took dinner without asking the price and were shocked that it cost 25 euro each! It was a good dinner, but we were travelling a bit on a budget and this came as a big surprise.

                    6.6

                    The villa sits on a beautiful piece of land not too far from Piazza Michelangelo. It overlooks the city. This made travelling in Florence easy for us. We parked the car at the Piazza and saw Florence on sightseeing buses and by foot. The value for this villa was good. Staying here was a different experience for us.

                    You can't be in a hurry, and you shouldn't expect the typical amenities of a hotel. Breakfast was very modest. So were the beds.

                    8.8

                    We love the ambience of the place.The serenity,the 'old' feel of the villa and the garden. The nuns who run the place give a 'Sound Of Music' touch to the whole experience. Ample parking. You can park your car at Piazza Michelangelo which is 5 mins away and take a bus to the city. Saves the hassle of driving and parking in the city. The sisters don't speak English,however some of the kitchen staff do. I would definitely stay there again.

                    The sisters don't speak English,therefore communication was a bit difficult. The internet access was on an hourly basis,using access cards that the sisters hand out. You can get a few access cards, but it's not very convenient. In summer,when the sun stays out till late, it's a shame that you have to be in by 10pm. :)

                    Stay here if you want something a bit different-all the photos are accurate,the grounds are gorgeous,the nuns are great,very business-like but friendly.The evening meal is a fab 4-5 courses with wine,water and bread,but probably not ideal if you are fussy/ allergic / veggie as there is no choice-to give you an idea we had soup/salad/chicken in lemon sauce with roasties and veg/ice cream and then a fruit bowl.So nice we booked for the second night and that was even better.One meal for 2 costs about 50 euros,and we were so stuffed we could barely make it to the loggia on the 2nd floor to watch the sun set.Bliss.

                    Very unusual atmosphere, quite location. Bed sheets with embroidery. Very friendly nuns.

                    -Strangely, nobody in reviews mentioned about very thin walls (you hear everything from the next room, toilet flush and shower as if in your own room) and an alarm system which is switched on at night and then you cannot open/close the window. Maybe that is not in all rooms. Better to book this hotel when you have a car, since buses go very seldom after 8-9 pm.

                    A very beautiful and very big garden, fills like a real countryside, but not far from Florence. Would like to stay there longer!

                    Quit a strict ladies (sisters) - always forced us to keep the discipline! (without any word in english!). But that was even nice.

                    The lush garden was beautiful, with olive trees, irises and roses and a view over the landscape surrounding Florence

                    The fact that it still is a functioning monastary, which means that the rooms are very sober, there is no possibility to have a double bed, there is a crucifix above the beds, and most of all, you have to be inside your room/at the hotel before 22h30 at night, which completely ruins your holiday if you are below the age of 70

                    What an unexpected surprise Villa Agape is. The "secure" complex is run by the Sisters of Agape and they keep the place spotless. The rooms are simple but well furnished. The showers are brilliant and the gardens are fantastic. I sat out in the sunshine for an hour just taking it all in. Breakfast was a bit basic.. bread, jam, yoghurt and coffee. but sufficient if you aren't looking for anything "fancy". Location is good for Florence if you have transport. Walking into the city would be a bit of a "challenge".

                    Nothing not to like really. Language could be difficult if you can't speak Italian, but one can get by.

                    Fantastic place with absolutely virgin nature! Great pleasure to be there! Thanks to Sisters Agape))) Only 15 minutes on foot to the city of Florence! If you are looking for a quiet, calm place, where you can think, enjoy nature etc., it's the best place! If you want joy, entertainment and coming back late - not very good) It's a real Sister's House with very strong rules...The door is closed at 23.00!

                    The location is splendid, quiet, and it features a magnificent garden. The whole place is very romantic. It is best suited to visit central Tuscany by car, because of easy access to the main roads. You can also take a bus to Florence (however, I have never seen the one that has the station nearby, you better walk down the street to another line). The villa itself is well maintained and relatively clean. Nothing to really complain about. I would stay here again.

                    The breakfast is very limited and obviously cheap (unsalted bread, pre-packaged butter, jam, croissants and yogurt, fresh milk and coffee). Don't worry about the water - you will have plenty. The door from the douche cabin needed repairing. The antique wardrobe is worth professional refurbishment instead of just a wallpaper on the inside. It would be nice to understand Italian and even better to speak a few Italian words.
