“Lovely farm-type setting just 10 minutes from central florence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

This farm-like setting, just near Florence suited us perfectly.
We arrived with a taxi and took a bus to Florence central- very regular busline, a 10 minute ride and tickets for the bus were provided us by the B&B-owner, we returned them the next day- very helpful. Water and wine in abundance and without any extra fee; the home-cooked meal was simple but fun for an evening.

The rooms are good, clean, air-con works well and all with a small cooler for drinks etc. We had a room with an upstairs that was nicely sized yet a little noisy (tile-floor). Breakfast very simple- no great breads, healthy fruits or extra's, but cookies, cake and on request some eggs will happily be made for you.
We choose to eat outside in a lovely restaurant overlooking florence, just a few miles away: osteria del milione, a very nice authentic restaurant- do ask for a place on the main terrace- preferably on the side with the view. Nice appetizers, easy BBQ food, but a long waiting line without reservation.
We rented a car to drive around in Tuscany (reserve online pickup in Florence saves 50% on car-rental).

My parents were traveling through from Munich to Rome and I found La Fattoressa online. The did have a hard time finding the road it was located on, despite the Google map they had but the owner was sweet enough to meet them in town and lead them back! They loved the location, the garden, the pool - my mom couldn't praise it all enough. Above all, they really appreciated the friendliness of the owner and staff and would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends! Great experience!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2009

We stayed in La Fattoresa by accident this past May. We had booked our 3-night stay in Fattoria Settemerli (via their own website), but when we arrived there they did not have our booking and were fully booked for the week. The owner of Fattoria Settemerli was very apologetic and took us directly to La Fattoresa, which is just down the street (and easier to access) from Settemerli.
Our initial concerns were eased thoroughly when we were shown the rooms. They were spotless, very spacious and had air conditioning; the decor is rustic, just like you would expect from a country B&B. We were given a triple room for the same rate than the double (40 Euros/person/night), continental breakfast included. The room and the bathroom were both comfortable and big, even by American standards. Both the owner and her son's family live on premises, so we truly felt like locals there. The owner does not speak any english, but was very nice and gracious throughout our stay. She makes coffee every morning, and serves breakfast in the main dining room for guests. The daughter-in-law does speak english, and that's who we dealt with mostly. From what we could tell, this B&B is mostly favored by Europeans, as we saw cars from Denmark and Sweden, as well as another couple from Milan.
This B&B is located in Galluzzo, which is about a 20-30 min. bus ride from downtown Florence (sorry, can't remember the bus no.) and it is also easily accesible by car; parking is included in the rate.
If you are looking for a comfortable, reasonably-priced place, where you feel like a local, away from the hustle and bustle of Florence but easily accessible to it as well as to the Chianti region, you will not go wrong with La Fattoresa.
