“Fantastic B&B!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2008

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Villa Miralunga for a week at the end of July and it was a wonderful experience. The website is very helpful and Isabella, the owner, was prompt at replying to my email queries.
On the day of our arrival we were running late and I could not contact the villa by telephone to let them know but there was no problem, Isabella's mother was waiting for us and despite her lack of English and my lack of Italian she could not have been more welcoming.
The villa itself is beautiful, a large building occupied by the family on the upper floors and with four ground floor bedrooms making up the B&B. We had the first room and it was far better than the website pictures had suggested - spacious, spotlessly clean, nicely furnished with a large wardrobe, television, fridge and a lovely ensuite bathroom.
Breakfast was excellent with a selection of teas, fruit, cereal and rolls along with a simple plate of cheese and ham. More important was the beautiful coffee and orange juice, both made on the spot by Isabella.
The village of Fiesole is ten minutes' uphill walk from the villa with a couple of lovely restaurants, the best of which Isabella was happy to point out. Fiesole is an excellent alternative to staying in Florence as it is quieter, uncrowded and has amazing views of the city.The bus stop is right outside the villa from where it is only twenty minutes into Florence city centre, with great views on the way downhill. Isabella has bus tickets for sale.
The view from our room was not perfect but was more than made up for by that from the breakfast room or by strolling up the road for an astonishing panorama of the city and surrounding hills. There was also more traffic than expected on the road outside but it was in no way a problem.
Isabella could not have been more charming or helpful, giving us advice on where to go and looking up train timetables before I even had the chance to ask her.
Overall this was a wonderful holiday experience and I could not recommend this B&B highly enough.

The place has a complete view over Florence, from the natural balcony of Fiesole.
Isabella runs this B&B in the right way, either you are a tourist or a businessman (that's my case).
Rooms are clean and comfortable.

In the last years I had tried different types of accomodation in Florence but this B&B was the first one that I really liked. Maybe because of the excellent and huge breakfast. (In case you go to stay there don't forget to ask for the eggs produced by the chikens of the owner's mum!) I also appreciated the kindness of the owner and the lucky location of the B&B - it is just below Fiesole but not too far from the centre of Florence on which it has a beautiful view.

I was in Italy last January with my girlfriend and we stayed at Fiesole at the Villa Miralunga B&B.
A charming and cozy bed and breakfast with an amazing view of Florence.
It is very comfortable and well positioned to visit florence.
We certainly go back.
