We've been at Melograni for 5 days, as part of our honeymoon. The place is perfect if you want to visit the major cities in Tuscany. Sue is always happy to assist & Riccardo always ready to provide maps, directions & tips on surrounding cities. If you want to watch an astonishing sunrise, well, its the place to be! Make... More

We selected I Melograni as our base in Tuscany for several reasons. We enjoy small B&Bs where you can get to know the locals; it sits out in the countryside with spectacular views that you'd expect in Tuscany; and the room rate was extremely reasonable. While having a car would have been a plus, Sue and Ricardo were extremely accommodating... More

I could not write a better or more accurate report than M Grug from Gronigan! He has said it all and very accurately too. We had the top flat which would be too hot in August. Sue and Ricardo are delightful, as is the Co-Op in Empoli. You must wear plastic gloves to handle fruit and veg - take a... More

This B&B run by Susan and Ricardo is located approx. 10 - 15 minute drive from the town of Empoli (they offer clear directions via e-mail, but if you have a navigation system, enter the coordinates offered to help you along, because the place is difficult to find). It offers simple and small accommodation on beautiful grounds with amazing views... More

Stayed at I Melograni in October 2012 and had a wonderful time. The location is peaceful as it is outside of town up a remote track - although easy enough if you have hired a car. The owners Riccardo, Susan and family are extremelly nice and helpful. Riccardo is particularly keen to help out with local maps and tourist advise... More

I Melograni is well situated for exploring Tuscany. We visited Pisa and Florence by train leaving the hire car at Empoli station, and other destinations - Lucca, Vinci, Chianti country and Sienna by car. The rooms were comfortable, clean and had beautiful views from the terrace - breakfast was very good. But the most outstanding feature of I Melograni is... More

I stayed here, with 3 other family members, for 3 nights in March, 2012. I selected I Melograni primarily for its location relative to Siena, Florence and Pisa. We had a rental car and, coming from Siena, found this place easily with a combination of a GPS and the directions provided. Once there, driving into Empoli to the train station... More

Saying goodbye to Sue and Riccardo is like saying goodbye to friends that you hope to see again soon every time! evr so welcoming. This is the art of hospitality producing master pieces...Children's heaven, wine lovers' treasury, writers', painters' and photographers' muse, joggers' perfect track: all this in the one perfect place in Tuscany.

I am a writer and I stayed at I Melograni B&B for five days to compose and finish my overdue manuscript.

Unfortunately, I must agree with "CBCBegur" on some of those complaints. The B&B is situated in a perfect location if you are with a car, as for my new wife and I we were on foot, relying on public trans for all transportation.

CharlieEmpoli, Owner at I Melograni B&B, responded to this review

I, Riccardo, have no record of this couple from Sierra Vista Arizona who allegedly stayed in our B&B last October and neither have the local Questura (police constabulary). In accordance with an Italian anti-Mafia law the formality of registering passport information with the police on a tourist’s arrival is obligatory by law; something I do immediately when guest’s check-in. Therefore,... More
