I stayed here for the 3rd time in September 2014 for 4 nights. I now call Chef Vary and her husband Edoardo my friends. They are always wonderful hosts and work very hard to help their guests with extra things like reservations, giving local restaurant suggestions, etc. This is a wonderful B&B, very comfortable beds and the room has a...

this place seems a little unusual to me, but only because I was not used to the way small hotels are in Italy. I got over it !! at the front door you ring the doorbell, if you can find it. the owner opens the 3 rd story window to receive you, and then comes down to help with your... More

We stayed with another couple for 5 nights at Vary & Edo's charming B&B. We loved it! The guest rooms are attractive, comfortable and each has a modern private bath. Best of all were our hosts. They were like an instant family - warm, caring and helpful. They made museum reservations, dinner reservations and provided valuable insider information about Florence.... More

We stayed here for two nights early November. Vary and Edo are warm and welcoming hosts. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We took the cooking class and learned so much from Chef Vary. It was so much fun. The breakfast was spectacular. They made dinner and museum reservations for us. They treated us like... More

My wife and two teenage daughters stayed here for three nights this past summer. It couldn't have been a more perfect place for us. There are only two rooms for guests and we had them both with private baths in each room. There was even a private room in between! The rooms are not nearly the best part. The home... More

I stayed three nights and loved every minute. Varinia and Eduardo treat everyone like family so my return there along with the other guest was not surprising. The B&B is in an excellent location near the Boboli Gardens. What makes this small, unique B&B so extraordinary is the fantastic food they serve and cooking lessons are also available. You do...

We stayed two evenings at Giglio Bianco. First thing, make sure you to closely follow the owners' instructions on how to find this place. I didn't have this info on me and thought I could find it myself. Second, absolutely plan to have dinner on site. We had an amazing dinner with multiple courses that delighted us - I will... More

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at Giglio Bianco B&B. Edoardo and Varinia were wonderful host and hostess. Very friendly and helpful in giving us information on places to see and dine. However, the best place by far to dine is right there at the B&B! The gourmet meal they offer is beyond words! We enjoyed our meal with... More

There are only two rooms in this B&B and the owners live on premise but I never felt like they were bothering us. The bedrooms are not large but there is a little sitting area shared by both rooms, with lots of tourist books. Their restaurant recommendations were excellent and Edo went out of his way when we decided to... More

We stayed with Vary and Edo at Giglio Bianco for eight days and they treated us like family. As it was my first trip to Italy my companion and I wanted to absorb Florence rather than check it off a "bucket list" The location on the "other side" of the Arno is quieter and extremely convenient in terms of accessing...
