Description - Bed and breakfast

High Class Bed and Breakfast nearby the Florence historical center, located in a 19th century Villa immersed in the green of one of the most charming Florentine residential areas. Villa la Sosta is the ideal place for visiting Florence and its surroundings, staying in an atmosphere of tranquillity and harmony.

Fantoni brother and sister, have decided to use part of their family villa in Florence, which dates back to the end of the nineteenth century, to give guests a high class Bed and Breakfast accommodation choice.
It's really the best place to choose for lodging, while visiting Florence and its surroundings, enjoying an invaluable atmosphere of tranquillity and harmony.
Giusy and Antonio offer their guests warmth and spontaneity so that their stay at B&B Villa La Sosta is like a home away from home.
The name of this elegant bed & breakfast is linked to the road that the gardens look onto: Via Bolognese. It is the oldest postal road crossing the Tuscan Apennines and today gives convenient access to Florence from the most charming residential area around the city.
In one direction it leads to the city centre, but in the other, this road, which starts from the ancient gate of S. Gallo at Ponte Rosso, leads up the Pellegrino hill and continues through the hills of Pietra and Lastra, Trespiano and Pratolino.
Here, once past the park of the Medici villa of the same name, it leaves Florence behind it and continues upwards to Futa, in the direction of Bologna, through valleys, ridges and mountains.
Villa La Sosta, which in the past was part of a more extensive property on the Montughi hill, is surrounded by large gardens with cypress and fruit trees; the building itself is elegant and sober, enriched by architectural elements recalling the eclectic style of the beginning of the 1900s, like the main bow-window entrance and the tower-mansard which gives a view of the surrounding hillside.

The continental breakfast is served in the spacious and elegant hall in colder months and in the garden, under an ivy pergola, in the summer. We can serve glutin-free breakfasts.
There is also a billiard room and a suggestive and panoramic windowed attic where guests can relax, read, play cards, watch television (satellite channels) or listen to music. Internet service.
Private car park inside the grounds.

"A family day in the wine country"
Giusy & Antonio are glad to arrange for their guests a wine tasting tour, a real "family day" in the Chianti Classico area (the wine country). They are saying "family", because you will not be considered like tourists, but as a part of a "big Italian family".
Chianti has some of the best grapes in the world. Any vine planted in this soil produces results of the highest quality. The soil in this area is the vine's perfect home and helps it grow the highest quality grapes. With care and knowledge passed on through the generations, humans have learned to make the most of the gift of these grapes. They are transformed, with care and love, into some of the most famous wines of the world.
You will visit historical places, vineyards and cellar with possibility to taste fantastic wines and eat traditional Tuscan food. You will feel like you have taken a step into the past in this suggestive area between Florence and Siena.
