Florence is a busy, noisy city jam-packed full of tourists so 1865 really is a very welcome antidote to the frenetic pace of city life - especially as we were visiting during a mini-heat wave. My partner and I stayed for four nights in early June at the start of our two week Tuscan holiday. 1865 is more like a... More

My husband and I stayed 6 nights with Michel and Cinzia in May. The both of us have traveled extensively, worldwide, for business and pleasure - and have extremely high standards. 1865 Residenza was all you could hope for and more. The residence is simply beautiful - meticulously renovated. Our room was large, light and had beautiful, original murals on... More

My husband and I stayed 4 nights here in May as part of of the 1st part of our 1st visit to Italy. Our expectations were very high after reading the consistently favorable reviews on TripAdviser. I am happy to confirm that the hype is real! The building and rooms were historical, but with modern amenities (including air conditioning). The... More

Our visit here was superb! It took us a while to find as the street was closed for roadwork. Cinzia gave us the warmest greeting and was most helpful in getting us settled. The room was beautifully appointed and exceptionally clean. MIchel made sure we had great breakfasts and good directions to our next destination! Their restaurant recommendations were perfect!...

We recently stayed at this place for three nights when we visited Florence. It was our favorite place we stayed on our trip. Even before we arrived Michel had contacted me about our plans and set up a wonderful day trip to Tuscany through Florence Connection. It was just perfect and it was one less thing I had to research!... More

We found this place very last minute and are happy we did! The rooms are absolutely beautiful, clean, comfortable beds, spacious storage, fast/reliable wifi, excellent breakfast (including buffet and made-to-order items). The couple who owns it was super sweet and helpful! They preserved the historical integrity of the place, which was great (there are original frescoes from the 1800s on... More

I have travelled the world and stayed in many 5 star places, however wonderful Michel and Cinzia provided the best possible experience, and I find myself now suggesting this is the best place city stay accommodation I have experienced, from beautiful rooms, fabulous tourist recommendations to fantastic local restaurant recommendations. What a B&B experience.

Wow describes this lovely place. Small & just really perfect. The location is excellent and the accommodations truly lovely. It is worth a stay just for the frescos alone. You feel as though you are in another time and place but with elegant beautiful modern amenities. Easy walking distance to everything but quite residential street only doors away from beautiful...

My wife and I spent 1 night in Florence and were so happy we chose 1865. It is peaceful, tranquil and extremely comfortable. The location is great. The hosts are wonderful and attentive. We will definitely stay here again if we visit Florence and highly recommend it.
