What an unqualified delight interacting with this most engaging couple....exuberance combined with an outpouring of kindness. Upon arrival, guests are warmly greeted with a tray of tempting biscotti and offered a glass of delicious sweet Tuscan wine. And then the fun starts...maps are spread out, bus routes discussed, trattorias and osterias are located-as first Luciano then Stefania spiritedly jockey for... More

We spent a week at the lovely Al Ventaglio B&B with Stefania and Luciano and thoroughly enjoyed our stay from start (a welcome with a glass of wine and sweet biscuits) to finish. Al Ventaglio is situated in a quiet neighbourhood, an easy (once you've worked out which passage to take in the underpass under Piazzo della Cure!) 20 minutes... More

As you'll probably realize from all other reviews of the B&B, Stefania and Luciano are absolutely amazing hosts who didn't leave a single stone unturned to make us feel at home. Upon arrival, we were welcomed very warmly with a glass of wine and cookies; and explained all the recommended places to visit (with info of entry fees, best time... More

Stefania and Luciano were outstanding in their gracious hospitality, during our seven days with them. We were greeted with warm introductions to easy exploration of Florence-maps, restaurants, bus service, brochures and recommendations for sites both requiring tickets and those that are free. The B and B is a mere 3 minutes walk to the #1 bus to downtown some 10... More

Stefania and Luciano made us feel right at home from our arrival to our departure. Always inquiring about all of our personal tastes and wishes, listening thoughtfully to our plans, there could not be better hosts anywhere. The room was furnished very tastefully and it was cleaned spotlessly every day. Many unique sites were recommended by our hosts which we... More

Right away, I'll come out and say that one of the 4 stars in my rating for Al Ventaglio B&B is purely because of the charming and affable hosts Luciano and Stefania. From the moment you step into the B&B they delight you with their helpful nature and friendliness. In spite of not speaking too much English they went out... More

Just spent 5 days in Florence and pleased that we selected the B&B Ventaglio for our stay there. Stefania and Luciano went out of there way to help us. Not located in the in the midst of the old town busyness and easily accessible by local bus service . Even though their English was limited it was no barrier to... More

B and B Al Ventaglio was a great place to stay while in Florence. My husband and I went to Italy for our honeymoon and we loved meeting Luciano and Stefania. They were both so helpful with maps, recommendations, cheap but good restaurants, and tips for viewing the city. Our room was cleaned beautifully everyday, and we has access to... More

My cousin and I stayed here for 5 nights last month (July 2014) as part of our 2 wk trip in Italy. Our hosts, Stefania and Luciano were such a delight. They were very helpful and accommodating.
