Our Guest Reviews
We had a great time at Villa Amata
We had a great time at Villa Amata. It really is a magical place and the staff were very helpful and great cooks. They are not fawning in any way, but Mrs. F. was very helpful with groceries and an excellent cook. The place and the pool are really quite amazing. Really a great spot and I appreciate your help in finding it and organizing. We used Veronica for our guide and for booking guides in other towns and she was really excellent in all regards.
Pampered and Perfect
Our family felt like pampered nobility in this lovely villa. The proportions of the home and the decorating are of the highest quality. Everything has been thought of, including the elevator that Mom used when her knee was troublesome. We agreed that our family relationships and bonds were renewed while experiencing this villa, location and country together. Whether it was collaborating over a meal served by the pool, sightseeing in Florence, tennis or just relaxing in the gardens together. Everything about the villa was perfect. The staff just wonderful.
