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

We stayed 4 days and it was a fantastic experience to meet the warm, friendly and kind hosts Stefania and Luciano. They are really putting a great effort into being as helpful as they can to all their guests. Location was fine for us, We walked almost everywhere and there were meal options close by. Bus transport was easy to... 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

Bueno sera Luciano and Stefania We stayed with Stefania and Luciano for the second part of our trip around Italy, for 3 nights on the 5th to the 6th June 2014. We had read other reviews about the friendliness of our hosts and we were not disappointed, so friendly and kind and because they aren't fluent in English you pick... More

We stayed 2 nights for our short trip to florence. The hosts were very helpful in explaining the city, places to go and even attempted to help us reserve tickets to the Uffizi. The room was really clean and comfortable. Very italian decor. One downside however, the location is 30 mins away from main train station and 20 mins away... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 night in April 2014. Stefania and Luciano could not have been nicer or more enthusiastic about making us feel welcome. You are not too close to the high traffic areas downtown, so you can have some quiet time, but the walk to the popular areas was not too far for the two... More

We had a great visit to Florence while staying at the B&B Al Ventaglio. Stefania & Luciano are wonderful hosts and made us feel very much at home. The location is just far enough outside the city center to escape from the crowded feeling but close enough walk. I was attending meetings daily at the Fortezza da Basso and it... More

I would just like to say a big thank you to Stefania & Luciano for making us feel so welcome in their B&B. We only had 3 nights in Florence but we had breakfast in the garden with them and were invited to cocktails and dinner to meet their friends and fellow guests, truly delightful. We will most definitely be... More

My wife and I stayed at the B & B Ventaglio for five days in early April. We had booked three nights but were enjoying both Florence and the amazing hospitality of Stephania and Luciano so much that we stayed an extra two nights. The B & B is ideally located close to the attractions of Florence without being in... More
