Perfect venue for a wedding reception
Sep 2019
This place is just picture postcard amazing in the evening. It was the most incredible venue for a wedding reception dining under the stars, dancing inside and enjoying drinks overlooking the countryside. If you are looking for somewhere to hold your wedding reception then look no further, this is it.

Lovely!

The gardens of Villa Ganberaia are lovely to say the least. Located on Via del Rossellino, they are on a height that gives beautiful views of the city of Florence. The gardens are immaculate and peaceful. Recommended.

This is a wonderful garden, especially the box hedges and the ponds. The view over Florence is an extra plus. It also was very still and quiet the day we were there. Get there by bus 10 + a steep walk.

The gardens of Villa Gamberaia - not to be missed
May 2015
The gardens of Villa Gamberaia are a must see for anyone interested in villa architecture and/or the formal gardens of Tuscany. See the BBC video by Monty Don before you go - it will enhance your appreciation of this unique villa significantly. Note: this is an italianate garden of toped shrubs, pools and terracotta statues. If you're looking for an English flower garden, this is not it.

A historic garden of peace and tranquillity
May 2015 • Couples
Hard to find, and needs a small car to get close as the village and lanes are extremely narrow - but once you're there, what a lovely garden. Fading quietly, but clearly attempts are being made to stop further decline; perfect formal Italian garden with statues, water, and fragrance everywhere from roses, herbs, pelargoniums and huge pots of lemon trees. A lovely garden, overlooking olive groves and Florence.

If old world charm is what you are looking for, this is a wonderful place to stay. The apartments are very clean although not posh. I went with a large group of painters on a painting retreat and had a great time. The staff are warm and friendly, the chef had a multi-course dinner for us each night and served extra dishes for the non meat eaters, everything was yummy good and was beautifully set on a large balcony with a view of Florence at night. You can make easy day trips to many of the old historic towns nearby or wonder down the street to the small town and market. The view overlooking Florence day or night from this villa is stunning. This is not a hotel, it's a real villa with outstanding gardens and charm-a-plenty! If you're not lucky enough to stay at The Villa Gamgeraia, take the time to tour it, it's renaissance garden alone is worth the trip.

VIlla and Renaissance Garden overlooking Florence
Sep 2013 • Solo
On the hills around Florence Villa Gamberaia boasts sweeping views over Florence and the Arno valley and sits amidst a spectacular Renaissance Garden. You can get there from Piazza San Marco with Bus nr.10 and then a short walk.

We caught the bus from Florence, which was very pleasant and easy, and walked the short way to the garden, which was a lovel walk. The garden was very well tended, and had amazing views over Florence, and the surrounding coutryside. Lovely way to spend a morning!
