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.

They gave us lots of local information and all in all we couldn't have wished for better hosts. They even took us out to visit some of the beautiful Medici villas. By the... More

We were thoroughly charmed by this very clean, comfortable and lavishly appointed B & B. The hosts, Stefania and Luciano, made us feel like long-awaited guests rather than hotel patrons. They were so enthusiastic and warm and made every effort to help us make the most of our stay in Florence. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, outside the frenzy... More

We stayed at the B&B four nights from 26th to 30th of May. Although we arrived really late, after 1am, Stefania and Luciano made us feel welcome from the first minute. They took the time to explain us everything. The place is absolutely gorgeous and we loved it from the first minute. The decoration is beautiful and you can tell... More

It was the first city in our tour of Italy so we had high expectations. Happy to say it did not disappoint. The area was located near a bus station so it was easy to go around the town. It was not exactly in the central area but in a neighborhood where even strangers are made to feel welcome. Rooms... More

Thank you for everything. We had a wonderful time when we stayed with you for our honeymoon. Stefania and Luciano really took the time to help us orientate ourselves even though we were delayed and didn't arrive until 1am their time. It was very well equipped with nice things in the fridge and a lovely breakfast. They made it extremely... More
