This was a great place to stay at. The room was tidy, good size and the bathroom was lovely. What makes this place special though is the hosts - they are amazing, add little touches to your stay and made me feel very welcome.

My mother and her partner stayed here in May 2014. They found the place charming and most comfortable. Above all, they found the hosts superb - they were friendly, hospitable and could not do enough to make them feel at home and to help them enjoy their stay. With so many poor and over-priced B&Bs in Florence, it is nice... More

Having stayed at Al Ventaglio last year and wanting to return to Florence, I was looking forward to staying once again at Al Ventaglio. The history of Florence, the exceptional architecture, the quantity and quality of the art in many venues, the surrounding Tuscan countryside, yes, the beauty everywhere, drew me back for a four week stay at this lovely...

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
