Ape Rosa Relais is a villa that dates back late 18th century. The recent restoration has maintained both structure and atmosphere, but also provided the necessary modernization of the facilities.

Lovely building, and garden, in a good location. Nice rooms. We all had a great few days here.

The villa and the garden are beautiful and very charming, but there a re couple of things I wish I had known before booking the place: I had explicitly asked if we would have the entire place for ourselves, without other people using the facilities. We were a group of 14 old study friends who had a reunion weekend in Florence, so we wanted privacy. Paolo confirmed that we could have the place for us, but in the end he booked an additional couple in an apartment connected to the villa. The couple used the garden and pool while we where there, and they also ward through our kitchen and dining room. Moreover, the manager was there each day to check in other guests (staying in other apartments), so we really did not have the privacy we had asked for. The irony of it was when we had a dinner on the last evening, and Paolo complained that we were "disturbing the other guests" - we had explicitly asked to have the place for ourselves, and also had rented the entire place. The earlier Belgian reviewer had a similar problem with other people using the premises, so it does not seem to be an exception.

Zeer hartelijk onthaal door Paolo en zijn echtgenote bij onze avondlijke aankomst. We bezetten de hele villa met zijn zeven ruime en nette slaapkamers, die door Paolo zelf aan ieder koppel van ons gezin perfect werd toegewezen. Beschrijving van de villa klopte min of meer, behalve de eetruimte die anders was ingedeeld: in plaats van een grote eettafel (zoals op de foto), indeling met meerdere (4) tafels. Enigszins misleidend, want we dachten dat de villa voor ons alleen was. Blijkbaar zijn er bijgebouwen aan de villa waar andere gasten logeren en die ook gebruik maken van deze eetkamer. Dit verbrak een beetje de intimiteit van onze grote groep en op zondagmorgen waren er zelfs te weinig eettafels voor iedereen, zodat sommigen onder ons zich buiten op de terrastuin hebben moeten installeren. Gelukkig scheen de zon. Ook ontbreekt het aan een ruime zitkamer. Het was blijkbaar de eerste maal dat Paolo zo'n grote groep ontving. Voor het overige een en al tevredenheid van onze groep. De tuin zag er wat verwaarloosd uit, maar het was herfst en dus moeilijk te beoordelen. De ligging is OK: het historisch centrum best bereikbaar met de bus, waarvan de halte op 100 m. van de villa ligt. Wandelafstand is lang (40 min.) en niet evident: tocht door weinig interessante buurten en grote invalswegen.
