While it is somewhat hard to find the location, the villas itself were great designed with a taste of Italian Countryside. We rented a three bedroom villa, and it was very comfortable. It also includes a kitchen where you can cook for yourself including barbecue in the garden. The toilets & bathrooms were very clean. The beds in our villa... More

We stayed here for only one night and I wished it had been for much longer!!! The setting is idyllic, sitting atop a hill overlooking grape vines and olive groves. I spent my morning in the cobblestone courtyard enjoying a cappuccino, soaking up the sun, and checking my email (the courtyard is the only place that has email), while my... More

We stayed at La Sorgente di Francesca for a week in June and absolutely loved the place. We were 4 adults and 2 kids. The kids had so much fun here and we enjoyed the pool every day. The location is great and only 20 minutes by car to get to Florence. The restaurant up the street is absolutely worth... More

We stayed at this B&B for a long weekend in June. I booked for a group of 12 people (3 kids) and we stayed in a total of four different rooms, all very nice. The place, an old farm house and a manor house is simply fantastic and very well restored and extremely well kept. The staff is very friendly... More

We rented the entire property at La Sorgente di Francesca to have our close friends and family with us for our wedding. With the help of a wedding planner (Helga of weddingsitaly.com) we were lucky enough to find this gem and immediately I fell in love with the photos. I did get jitters on the way, hoping that it was... More

We just returned from a week-long stay at La Sorgente di Francesca. We couldn't have found a more beautiful spot, more lovely accomodations, or better hosts. Located in Pontassieve, not far from Fiesole and Florence, La Sorgente is nestled on a hilltop surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and absolutely gorgeous views of the Tuscan countryside. Monica and Massimo, a lovely... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
La Sorgente di Francesca bed and breakfast is a small borgo located in the gentle hills of the ancient village of Fiesole, just a few km from Florence and from its artistic and architectonic beauties.Il Borgo is composed by an ancient farmhouse with tower dated back to 1400, and by an elegant Villa whose basic structure maybe always dated back to the XV° century. In the farmyard in front of the farmhouse there are other two ancient buildings in stone where are Alexandra B&B and Monica B&B. Each B&B has a private outside area on the farmyard with umbrellas, tables and chairs.The entire estate has just been completely restored. A conservative restoration where the using of new materials has been reduced as far as we could, trying to recover the original features built hundred years ago. A conservative restoration linked to the most modern technologies to give our guests the possibility to live a piece of history with all the comfort of our times.The interiors of the bed and breakfast have been furnished with particular care combining ancient furnishings and accessories perfectly restored by old and experienced artisans with modern elements of fine design as the lights and lamps of the famous Terzani collection.From each part of the bed and breakfast, as much from the apartments as from the halls and the rooms you may enjoy a breathtaking view on the Tuscan hills. A magic place, where silence and tranquillity are just broken from the rumors of animals and from the dives of our guests into the beautiful swimming pool located just a few steps from the bed and breakfast.La Sorgente di Francesca also has 3 beautifully renovated holiday apartments in a perfect traditional Tuscan style. All apartments are located in ancient stone buildings adjacent to the farmhouse. La Sorgente di Francesca apartments may accommodate from a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 guests. ... more   less
