Yes it is charming, like being in your own big house. Rooms are a decent size. Breakfast in the gazebo is nice, though not a lot of variety offered. Adding some cheese, sliced tomatoes or even breakfast potatoes to the offering would be nice to enjoy in the setting. Cabs are easily available and we rented a car for a day for which there is parking. I think though we would have preferred to stay in town itself to be able to roam around longer after supper (without having to find a cab) or explore Florence more early in the morning before our flight. That’s just a personal preference as we prefer to be in the middle of the action. (Also as please provide hair conditioner along with shampoo!)
We traveled to Florence as a family, group of 8, including my 88 year old grandmother. The property felt like a home away from home. The common areas, the rooms, the bathrooms were all spotless. The beds were very clean and comfortable. The grounds were beautiful as was the pool. There are 2-3 rooms on the ground level itself, and my grandmother stayed in one of those, so she didnt need to climb any stairs. There are a few steep steps to the pool though, but once you get there the view is lovely. The location is a 12-15 minute drive from the centre of town. All taxis knew the hotel so it was easy to get home. Because the town itself was so full of tourists, it was a relief to have this beautiful space to come back to. Secondly, the staff - we had a fantastic experience. It was my Dad's 60th birthday and the team prepared a special (and absolutely delicious) meal and ordered us the yummiest cake. They had champagne and candles set up at the dinner table. They went above and beyond. My grandmother was a bit unwell while we were there and the staff looked after her as if she was family. For the wine tour Lorenzo took us himself to a friends vineyard - what a fun the experience. We did not feel like tourists, but friends visiting friends. If you want to stay at a very beautiful boutique property and get a sense of real Italian culture and hospitality, then this is the place for you. Thank you Lorenzo and family, we hope to be back someday!…
My husband and I traveled to Tuscany to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. I'm so thrilled we discovered this heavenly property through Trip Advisor. To say we LOVED it would be an understatement. From the moment we arrived it was perfect; the welcoming, the residence, our accommodation, the gardens, the breakfast buffet, the special dinners....every single day was perfect! The location couldn't have been better....close enough to everything and far enough to breath in the beauty of the Tuscan Hills. Thank you Lorenzo to you, your family and your staff for creating and maintaining this 'heavenly' residence! We are very much looking forward to returning...and staying longer!
Beautiful, elegant location outside of Florence. They did not have service to take us to the city but taxis were easy to get. The breakfast was delicious and the courtyard was relaxing. Yes, I would go back!
The room, the meals, the common living room, the gazebo; all were spectacular and extremely clean. The most extraordinary part of our stay at Le Marignolle was the quality of the team: amazing! We lost our rental car key in a taxi and they managed to trace the company taxi, the taxi driver, and to get the key back at the hotel! We stayed before this trip to some AirBnb; there is no way that they could have helped us with situations like this; and a toll ticket that was resolved by the team; again, an extraordinary team! Also, the services that they organize for restaurants, wine tours; spectacular experience! and a marvelous pool! Congratulations!
