I am very thankful that La Martellina is a B&B, and not some bar or restaurant or pub! My stay was wonderful and I had the best of both worlds - the city and the countryside. What's a Tuscany trip without the countryside, anyway! I look forward to having an early evening rest and slow morning start everyday, cos La... More

If you need the places with an atmosphere, La Martellina is for you. I'm not an expert in the hotel matters, but I suspect there are not so many of them in the world, which can boast a career as the water-mills in the past. So, first of all, LM is unusual. Further, a water-mill is always full of mysteries;... More

I spent 10 wonderful nights at La Martellina in September. This B&B is in the most magical of settings right beside the river Arno, just 7km from the centre of Florence. Close enough to enjoy a relaxing bike ride alongside the river to the city and back, yet far enough from the hussle and bustle to feel truly idyllic and... More

Tucked in a quiet neighborhood on the banks of the Arno. An old mill building, converted to B&B. Comfortable surroundings, excellent food, very reasonable pricing, and an easy ride into Florence or out into the countryside. Claudio is a delightful man, and an excellent and knowledgable host. We would definitely stay there again

We found the B&B on Hostelworld, and were very happy with our stay. It is only a short bus ride into Florence, and if the weather is nicer than when we were there, you can borrow bicycles for free. The rooms and bathroom are lovely, with lots of tourist information in the common area. Claudio was a very kind and... More

Beautiful B&B in a picturesque setting. We stayed for 4 days in early September and it was absolutely perfect for us. Relaxing, peaceful, clean and homely. Claudio and Emilio were very welcoming and made us feel at home. And don't even get me started on how GREAT the breakfast was: choices of cheeses, breads, cakes, cereals, fresh fruit, coffee and...

Great value for money and just loved being in the mill on the river, good location. We then used their bikes to ride into Florence along the river. The host is a great guy. It is not far into the city by bus and out of the hustle and bustle.

Claudio and Emilio have stolen our heart. We could only survive the crowd in Florence because of the charming and relaxing guesthouse La Martinella in Fiesole. Its is historical, relaxing and homely. The sweet sound of the Arno when sitting in the garden enjoying breakfast and the hospitality of Claudia and Emilio, that is the real thing. The old watermill... More

You are instantly made to feel welcome upon entering Claudio's beautiful home. The B&B is set in the most wonderful spot alongside the river & the sound of the river running by is the soundtrack to relaxing & enjoying Claudio's large garden with its quirky hammocks and swinging seats. We shared a bathroom with one other guest which was absolutely... More

Our second visit to this delightful old B&B and a warm welcome from Claudio and Emilio (the dog). Staying here is more like staying in friend's home than in a B&B. It's relaxed, charming, homely. I caught up with some washing and hung it in the garden.It is lovely to be so close to Florence but away from the hustle... More
