A must stay when in Tuscany! My husband and I still tell people about your beautiful Villa. Breakfast fixed daily and the view from the veranda was amazing! Overlooked the Chianti Valley. Breathtaking views and great private pool area. Will defiantly go back! Only miles from Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and train to Cinque Terra from Pisa.

Great room with air conditioning, very rustic and a charming pool make this the perfect getaway to explore tuscany. If you go in August beware of the mosquitos anywhere in the region. Charming host, Great breakfast with omelet and croissant and delicious lattes. (you can ask for more than one :))

This was a fantastic start to our trip through Tuscany. You need a car, but it's only 20 mins from florence and very near to the next town where you can get a bus into the city and park for free. The scenery is absolutely stunning, certainly one of the best views over breakfast I've ever had! The host, Simone,... More

If you're looking for a secluded place to enjoy fresh, fragrant air, truly relax and charge your batteries - look no further. This B&B has it all: cozy rooms, unobtrusive yet efficient staff, magnificent surroundings and terrific location (you're 2 minutes away from a wonderful restaurant Albergaccio Machiavelli, 15 minutes by car from Florence). Room was a bit small but... More

I spent 7 days here with my wife and 7yo son. As many of the reviews here already stated, the rooms are not that big but are very clean, with TV, AC, fridge and clean bathroom with daily towel change. Breakfast is simple but has everything needed, in fact even more. WiFi is actually great, I managed to upload 80Mb... More

Tucked away in a beautiful valley in Tuscany, this old farmhouse B & B is a perfect retreat. Basic, clean and full of Tuscan charm, it is a family business run by Simone who rustles up a hearty breakfast of eggs, bacon, fresh croissants, fruit, yoghourt and aromatic coffee every morning. You can have it on the terrace overlooking the... More

This is the sort of place you never see from the street & have to know it exists. And then you have a slight downhill semi drive access. But it has only pluses & one negative that I saw. Pluses are super location in real countryside & yet near a local bistro of class, stone house with character, peaceful pool,... More

We stayed 2 nights in this B&B in the mountains south of Florence and enjoyed it. This is a very romantic place in the middle of the Cianti vineyards.

We stayed only one night, unfortunately, but the experience was superb. starting from the place with a 360 degrees view on the Tuscany campaign, continuing with the small but cozy room and finishing with the sympathy of the owner and staff that made our stay unforgettable.

We stayed 3 nights, used as base for exploring Florence and Toscana. The hotel is ideally located for that. 5 minutes drive north you can get a bus that takes you right to the middle of Florence in 15 minutes so no need to worry about parking. 5 minutes south is San Casciano that has awesome restaurants (Cinque di Vino...
