Extraordinary Stay at Tantafera
"Our stay at Tantafera was just jaw-dropping incredible. We had nine adults and had more than enough space for everyone. The interior is beautifully decorated and feels very authentically Tuscan. The gourmet kitchen has everything you could want or need and Roberto greets you with a lovely and very complete welcome basket full of delicious goodies. Even though the villa is only a 15 minute drive into the center of Florence, you feel very removed from the hustle and bustle. We often spotted deer and game birds around the property.
My husband and I got married in Florence and we chose the villa for our family's accommodation as well as our wedding reception dinner. We are so thrilled with our choice. The view of Florence from the garden is unsurpassed and made for a truly spectacular backdrop. The online photos just cannot do it justice. In fact, our guests are still talking about how stunning the villa and its view were.
What helps push this property over the top is the extremely gracious hospitality of the host/owner, Roberto. He went out of his way time and time again to make our stay as comfortable and wonderful as possible, from meeting guests at the airport, to finding lactose-free milk, to driving us around Florence during a taxi strike. Just outstanding and extraordinarily gracious hospitality that made us feel like friends rather than guests.
The only negative thing we could complain about was that we had to leave! ;) Our group is already talking about a return trip to Florence and to Tantafera."

"This is the 2nd time we've stayed in this great apartment - the first time was in 2011. We were two adults and 2 teenage sons. This apartment has everything you need and the location is right across the street from the Duomo, and within walking distance to everything. The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was large and clean with a washing machine. Towels were plentiful and the kitchen had everything you would need. Internet worked just fine. The photos are accurate. Communication was prompt, friendly and efficient! I definitely recommend this apartment."

"We stayed only 3 nights but I wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was the perfect Florence experience, on the other side of the Arno surrounded by locals rather than tourists. The apartment is in an old building, up a couple of flights of stairs (no elevator) which makes you feel like a true Florentine (plus it helped to work off all the gelato that we ate everyday!). You can walk everywhere from the apartment: to Piazzale Michelangelo, Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, the Accademia, etc. If you are not cooking in, there is a "bar" across the street and another a couple of doors down for morning coffee and pastry and good restaurants near by. The apartment was the perfect size for the 4 of us with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a comfortable living room and cute little kitchen. In the afternoon, from the living room window you could hear the locals in the building talking as they prepared lunch. The owner, George, is very nice and was easy to work with by email as we were making arrangements as well as when we arrived. He checked in with us during our stay to make sure that everything was O.K. I would rent the apartment again on our next visit."
