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. Very good for a romantic break but even for a family vacation.... no danger... More

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...

The B&B is located very close by Florence and is newly built. You can only get here by a dirt road, which is fairly steep. The rooms are nice but fairly small, fairly clean, though the shower doors in the bathroom grow some mold. The breakfast served is plentiful with some fresh fruits. The view from the terrace is very... More

My friend and I stayed here in 2010 and I still have such fond memories that i am writing a review 2 years later after looking at some trip photos. Simone and Matteo were wonderful hosts.

Just returned from a 7 day trip with wife and 2 year old. The Fonte del Macchiavelli was a perfect B & B with a great location. 30-50 minutes from Florence, Siena San giminiano etc. Service was excellent and very friendly.

Spent a week based here which was convenient since it is only 20 mins from Florence and a few minutes from the A1 Autostrada (highway). The B&B itself was nice and clean, rustic style, had a nice pool which was a bit chilly - great after a day traveling around under the Tuscan sun. The breakfast was great, especially for... More
