Silvie makes you feel like at home, providing you of all sort of very usefull information, including maps and recomendations. On the other hand, you have your own lovely and spotless fully furnished room. Great breakfast!. Very close to Florence.

We stayed with Sylvie for 5 nights at the end of October. La Tartaruga is easy to find and perfectly placed for visiting Florence, Pisa, Siena and less-frequented gems such as Lucca. Our room was spacious with a really comfortable bed and fluffy pillows. Ask Sylvie about access to a kitchen if you want to do your own cooking. But... More

What a find! La Tartaruga is a beautiful home shared by the delightful Sylvie with her guests. Sylvie really is a wonderful hostess. Our room - the Blue Room - was huge and very comfortable. We were welcomed with fruit and water in the room and each morning breakfast was laid out on the terrace of her pretty garden. We... More

Due to a family emergency at our chosen B&B, we were unable to stay at the B&B we had researched on Tripadvisor. The B&B recommended La Tartaruga at short notice, so we were a little concerned that it wouldn't be very good. How wrong we were. From the moment we arrived, Sylvie did everything to make us feel welcome in... More

We stayed at La Tartaruga in Oct 08 so this review is well overdue but we wanted to share our experience because Tripadvisor was a big help in planning our trip. We stayed for 3 nights and wish it had been longer as it was so relaxing being at this B&B. We arrived following a night in Florence where we... More

Sylvie was a gracious host and is am amazing woman (speaks several languages and is full of energy).

In the past we were always slightly put off going to Tuscany because of disappointing hotel experiences, but now we've found Sylvie I think we'll be back much more often :-) I can't say enough to recommend Sylvie's place. We liked the room (the Blue room on the top floor) - really spacious, lovely bathroom, kitchen area, very clean &... More

We stayed at Sylvia's this October and we are absolutely delighted. Charming lady, very welcoming and helpful. Spacious, cosy rooms, nicely decorated and refurbished, beautiful views, abundant, tasty breakfast. What more would you wish for? I would definately recommend this place and stay there myself. Thank you so much, Sylvia. We loved it.

We were very fortunate to stay at Slyvie's wonderful B&B. We appreciated her suggestions on where to go and how to get there. Her breakfasts were superb and she spent time making conversation with us. We also appreciated her giving us the opportunity to make sandwiches for ourselves out of the leftover breakfast meats and cheeses. I would highly recommend... More
