We spent three nights at the B&B Al Ventaglio in May and enjoyed every moment. The location is outside the historic district so it is quieter. It is a 20-25 minute walk into the historic center, but there are easy buses if you choose not to walk. The hosts, Luciano and Stefania, are delightfully warm and gracious. They have printed...

Thank you Stefania & Luciano for welcoming us into your home. We haven't done a B&B before and you have truly made this a very nice experience for us. The room was spacious, clean & cozy. The extra small touches such as the bread for toast, muffins and of course all the coffee we can drink was very much appreciated!... More

This B&B is small with only 2 rooms, however our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated with A/C, TV etc and complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits and free wi-fi. The breakfast consisted of a selection of cakes, yoghurts, bread & cheese etc which were laid out for us to help ourselves. It was about a 25 minute easy walk... More

We stayed at B&B Al Ventaglio for 3 nights in May 2016. The hosts Luciano and Stefania are wonderful people, so warm and friendly.

When you arrive at Al Ventaglio, you are always warmly welcomed. The rooms are beautifully decorated in a Florentine style with great attention to detail. They are spotlessly clean. The bed linen is fresh and the beds are truly comfortable. The windows are properly shuttered and so the rooms are very quiet, a welcome retreat after a day of sightseeing.... More
