We had the pleasure of staying at this B&B in July last year. We were in Florence for a total of 5 days and stayed in both rooms. We were very humbled by the generosity and warmth offered by Stefania and Luciano the moment we arrived. They are world class hosts and would truly do anything to assist you. We... More

You will not find more gracious, helpful hosts than Stefania and Luciano. They love their city and willingly share their knowledge with their guests. Our room was spacious and welcoming. We started each day with strong coffee and pastries.

Luciano and Stefania were very wonderful hosts. Their hospitality was amazing, with attention shown in every detail. They have made the B&B my very sweet home away from home. The rooms are located on the ground floor, saving any trouble with dragging suitcases into the lift or up any stairs. The room was spacious and warmly decorated in traditional Italian... More

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
