We stayed on May 5th, 2012 for 2 nights and had all 3 rooms. This place was so far beyond expectations even though I had read all the reviews on TA, and at the time they were all excellent. Even now ignore the reviews under the rating of 5, some people would complain if they stayed in the finest hotel in the world and only had to pay 5 dollars.
When we walked into the house both the kitchen and eating areas were adorable, then as you go up stairs it gets even more charming. The rooms were spacious and the exposed rock and brick really made it spectacular. My 4 year old boy walks through the door of our room and sees the bathroom and the rest of our room and said emphatically "This is Cute!" And he wasn't lying, and keep in mind this is coming from me a typical guy who wouldn't normally notice a nicely decorated room. We absolutely loved staying here and the breakfast was beyond belief, it was one of the best we had in our trip through Europe.
My parents had the room without the en suite bathroom and their bathroom just outside their room and they were the only ones using it. It was so close to the room that I wouldn't have seen it as a negative if we had the room and didn't know other guests.
What wonderful hosts Laura and her husband were, they run this B&B because they love doing it and it shows. If we ever go anywhere near Florence or the Chianti Region we will be staying here, it was such a beautiful experience for us.
