The, somewhat older, B&B is located on a hill with a beautiful view over Firenze. Own transportation is needed to get around. The owner is very friendly and gives tips to visit/eat. Overall it was a very nice and calm B&B (with swimmingpool). The 1 potential downside is the remote location.

Charming, peaceful Villa with stunning views over Florence. Within easy reach of Florence by car, allowing the flexibility of experiencing the city and the rural calm. The hostess Giovanna is delightful, she made us feel very welcome, keeping us well fed before our busy days scouting wedding venus.

Such a lovely place and host! Spacious room, with a view on Firenze. Quiet surroundings, with a nice trattoria just 10 minutes walking. Firenze 15 minutes by car. Breakfast is great, homemade lemon cake and marmalade. Nice historic place for long or short stay.

Villa Sestini surpassed our expectations. The view over the beautiful Florence is breathtaking - one of the best sunsets I've ever seen. The garden full of flowers, the charming spacious room and the warmth of our hostess charged us with a lot of positive energy. Thank you, Giovanna!

This is better than a 5 stars hotel! If you want to visit Firenze and the north of Toscany, this is the place to be! It is a marvelous location with a splendid hospitality by Mrs Giovanna. Nice authentic rooms, clean and a typical local B&B breakfast. There is also a swimming pool to cool off. This B&B is also... More

10 minutes from Firenze, on the hill, in a beautifull area you find this place.

Real marmalade, real coffe, real morning sweets. What else do you need before a nice walk in the... More

Though hard to find, Giovanna's villa is worth the trip. This 100 year old house is wonderful and modernized. It has a great view over the Arno River Valley and sunsets over Firenze. If you have a car, use this as a base for Sienna, Pisa, Lucca and the wine country of Chienti. Hopefully the photo gives a clue to... More
