I only had one night, arrived late, left immediately for a tour and was gone the next day, but the owners did all they could to make sure that I had everything I needed and was wanting for nothing. Definitely worth coming back to for a longer stay. I had the single room with shower which was clean and had... More

A wonderful 18th century oasis in florence. Within 15 mins walking distance of all the sites. In the evening a wonderful easy stroll to many restaurants, yet the residence is outside the busy city centre and allows you to dip in and out. Max and Bea are perfect hosts and go out of their way to accommodate you ...the fact... More

A wonderful tranquil oasis in the joyful chaos of Florence. Beautiful "historic" decor makes you feel like you are in the heart of the city. Walking distance to all the sights but far enough away to be quiet and get a good night's sleep. Lovely balcony for a mid-day chill out and lunch on delicious local wine and produce. Max... More

I just finished a 4-night stay at Residenza Casanuova. First, this is a floor of a beautiful 18th century house that has been in Bea and Max's family since shortly after WWII. Max and Bea are a brother and sister team, and they both are wonderfully hospitable (and both speak excellent English, much better than most, which made my stay... More

I stayed at the Residenza for the location and price and was not disappointed. I usually stay at a hotel, but very much enjoyed my stay. Max and Bea are very helpful.

This wonderful B& B was recommended by our daughter and we weren't disappointed. Max and Beatrice are a brother and sister team who run this wonderful accommodation in an apartment left to them by their grandmother. Don't think apartment in any highrise sense, this is a gracious spread of rooms with an enormous sense of history in this ancient building... More

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast. We stayed in the Umbrella Room for 2 nights. It is a large, comfortable room, very well-equipped. Everything you need is there. The breakfast was served in a common room, and the quality was quite good. No cooked food, but they will make cappuccino for you, and you can make toast for yourself.... More

Dear clients, thank you for your comment that we appreciated . We are sorry to read about the noise you had...Florence is a busy town... we have also two rooms (a 1 double and a 1 single) that get onto the backyard side, probably less noisy...hope to see you again. Arrivederci Bea and Max More

Bea and Max welcomed us into their home, gave us a wonderful breakfast and great recommendations on where to have dinner. It is not right in the action of things so you have to walk 10-12 minutes everywhere you want to go but the upside to that is that it's quiet. I think if we had stayed right by the... More

Spent 3 glorious day in Florence in July. What a great place to stay, you really feel like you are staying with friends or family. Max was charming, and so helpful, even booking us a table for my husbands birthday. The recommendations made of restaurants did not fail us once, a very enjoyable visit.
