We spent three nights with Claudio at his home/Inn, and were more than satisfied by our accommodation. We slept in a room that was built 300 years BEFORE Columbus sailed to America, just to give a touch of perspective to the location. Claudio's companion, the St. Bernard mix Emilio was equally charming. Breakfast was varied and interesting, with a multitude... More

This was one of the best places we stayed in a month in Italy, although not in Fiesole per se. Claudio was the perfect host assisted by his dog Emilio. The room we had was sort of a turret up a spiral staircase overlooking the river with a separate, well-appointed, airy and quaint bathroom. Claudio only created the B &... More

Claudio is a very friendly and funny host who will do his uttermost to make you feel welcome at his house. We spent two nights here and had a great time. The place is located within 6 km of Florens (easy accessible by bus or car), and just by the river. Very soothing and warm setting with a nice atmosphere... More

This B&B is wonderful. It is really not in Fiesole, but in a little hamlet called Il Girone at the end of the 14A bus route from Florence. The 14A runs every 15 to 20 minutes and stops at the main station in Florence outside Macdonalds, so there is no need to take a taxi to the B&B. The 14A... More

An excellent position for visiting Florence: take a bicycle that Claudio offers for rent, and enjoy a nice picteresque cycling path that takes you up to the Ponte Vecchio of Florence. Claudio is an excellent host, and the place is a true retreat... I can heartly recommend it!

My 18yr. old son and I LOVED our stay at La Martellina! It was a nice break from being in the midst of all the tourist in Florence. The rooms were big, clean, comfortable, and had the most amazing and relaxing views. The building had a lot of character and charm. Even though it was about 6 miles from the... More

the reviews are all true- this is a dream place. Proof comes from looking at your fellow travellers' grins from the happiness they are experiencing while staying here. We will be back here again and again. Claudio gives so many people such happiness. BE SURE to read his route instructions on the right bus ( 14 A) as many see... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Claudio, Emilio and Tiger! After the tourist packed city of Florence it was a delight to get on our bikes and ride back to Claudio's place, where the rippling sound of the river Arno made us fall sound asleep. In the morning we were offered a splendid breakfast and we would be ready again... More

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
