Gabriella was most welcoming our arrival and has continued to be so of the duration of our visit. She is most helpful with maps, advice, restaurants and local knowledge and ou double room with private facilities on her 200+ year old home is very comfortable. She and her husband Fernando tend the large garden around the property, which are open... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon here. It's a wonderful place, located outside noisy Florence, but still only 20 minutes drive away from the city. The B&B is up on a hill, having a beautiful garden where you can relax and enjoy the surrounding landscapes which are breathtaking; it seems to be a fairytale: lovely surroundings, birds singing, relaxation...

but we will never know. We spent more than an hour driving around in search of this idyllic-sounding B&B. We managed to find Polcanto. We turned up the Via Tassaia, where there was a sign pointing up the hill to the Porcigniano B&B. That sign was all we ever found. We drove up the Via Tassaia and there was no... More

we are very sorry that you did not find us, maybe you have not seen the third sign on the main road Tassaia that says to turn to the right, is a small private road that leads from Tassaia straight to our gate, 46b, 46a, 46c. It is a true paradise, and for this a little hidden. However, on our... More

I don't think I can give enough praises to such a lovely place to stay. Once you are at the B&B it feels like a world away from hectic Florence. It was a little tough to find at first, but once you are used to the roads Florence and Fiesole are easily accessible. From Fiesole driving or taking the bus... More

Sleeping was no problem, the bed was fresh and clean with a breathtaking view of the natural flora from my window and the sound of nature at night were completely serene. Breakfast was always ready in the... More

Gabbriella is very nice and helpful person. We really like her place. Is a litle bit far from the city, but for us this was perfect. We could experience the real Tuscany way of life waking up with birds singing and all the green view. Daniela & Felipe

Porcigliano is a rustic Tuscan B&B with all the modern amenities. Perched on a hillside overlooking beautiful Tuscany, you feel a million miles away from the busy Italian metropolitans, but in actuality, this B&B is about 20-30 minutes away from Florence's city center. Gabriella is the perfect host who is fluent in English and very knowledgeable about the region. There's... More
