“Go to somewhere else”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

We have stayed for 4 days in Fattoria Settemerli and it was horrendous. The building is inside a beautiful family estate where they produce olive oil and have stables and horses. However I cannot say that the B&B was up to standard.

The room was quite uncomfortable, with bare stone floors, shelves full of dusty books from 1980s, no wardrobes, a bathroom with a tiny shower and filthy towels, and an uncomfortable bed with dirty sheets.

We have tried the breakfast in the first morning and I must admit the olive oil they produced was beautiful on Tuscan bread, they served with prosciutto, milano salami and cheese. However, the dining room was very cold and decorated without any particular concept but with hundreds of old and dusty objects. All room including the dining set on the table and jams served in jars looked dirty and dusty.

I cannot really complain about the attitude of the staff. There were too many things to complain about that we choose not to. Besides, there was a different person every night, most of them preferred to sit in dark and cold, by the kitchen table or by the reception desk.

We would come back late at night and before we turn the lights on, we would try to guess where would the housekeeper sit and which way would the cat run from. We would then climb up the stairs, trying to not to look right or left but straight only as there was some sort of a family chapel, with hundreds of dusty, broken and scary carvings, sculptures and objects. Gothic entertainment!

Room Tip: One of my friends stayed in a room outside the house in summer time. She was quite fond of the garde...

I stayed at this Agritourismo hotel during a motorcycle tour of Europe, as we needed a base close to the location of the Motorcycle GP, 20 km's away. For anybody wanting to stay near to the city of Florence without the hustle & bustle of a major city, this location is perfect. In fact, sitting in the garden outside the rooms is so peaceful; you could almost believe you are 20 km’s from the city.
The accommodation itself is very rustic & traditional, more than acceptable but could not be classed as luxury; however that is borne out by the price, which is outstanding value for the proximity to the city. Once checked in, you are almost left alone, however upon arrival, one of the hosts did prepare a plate of mixed crostini’s and a local bottle of wine for us, which was exactly what we needed after our long journey. Whilst the car parking facilities are located away from the main building, the hosts did allow us to park our motorcycles close to our room, which was in a smaller annex from the main building.
Breakfast was served at a large shared table in the main building and was typical continental, however a word of caution, we asked the start time for breakfast and was told 8:30, only to find that on Sunday that time is significantly later.
The hosts provided us with 2 restaurant recommendations, the first a simple Pizza restaurant in the local village square which turned out to be a real hidden gem, with a lovely eating area in the garden at the back, the second was a typical Tuscan kitchen restaurant that specialises in the local steak speciality “Bisteca Fiorentina”. This restaurant was a 10 minute car journey away south of the hotel, but well worth the journey. Both restaurants did not suffer the usual Florence tourist price mark ups and were excellent value.
Overall, if you want to be away from it all in the city of Florence, and have your own transport, this accommodation has a lot going for it, as long as you don’t expect the last word in luxury, but are happy for the simple charms of Traditional Tuscany.

We stayed in this hotel while were spending a few days sightseeing around toscany. Well, it is true that the breakfast is a little poor and you obviously need a car to stay there. The rooms are not very lush but they have beautiful colours and decorations. However whatever little flaws are more than adequately made up for from the warm and welcoming staff, the amazing views of the surroundings, the beautiful garden with the gazebo, the quiet environment. This is the place to be for a romantic getaway.

A perfect representation of Tuscan architecture and style. This farmhouse is bound to impress you from the very first moment you arrive. It is a home away from home.Staff is super friendly with special kudos to Danielle who nursed my wife's sprained leg diligently and with such affection. We were on our honeymoon and wanted to relax and rewind at a quite place before we hit the wilderness of Roma. Fattoria Settemerli met all those expectations and much more. Yes, you do need a scooter or a car to travel to and fro to make your life easier. But also on the other hand to experience a real traditional Tuscan farmhouse you have to set base in the countryside. So all you readers, please ignore all the negative comments from in experienced travellers looking for a B&B or hotel room experience. This is a farmhouse! So cop on! Its top class.

This place was simply beautiful. A restored 12th century farmhouse located on the outskirts of Florence with very pretty themed rooms (ours was a frog theme with even a bottle opener shaped like a frog). The people who own the place were extremely nice and cordial (not to forget the house parrot) and the breakfast menu was a delicious assortment of fresh farm produce. The surroundings are supposed to be a beautiful trek in itself but the weather during our trip did not offer us this opportunity.

If you are travelling with a heavy backpack please ensure that you notify the people in advance of your arrival timings for them to pick u up as it is quite a walk from the bus stop to the farmhouse. Frequency of buses from Florence is a bit of a problem. And in winter the area is going to be chillier than the rest of Florence, so go prepared.

In all, the place's a scenic beauty & a definite must for a romantic trip.

we have recently returned from a world trip and tuscany is one of the wonderful places we visited and what made it a highlight was staying at fattoria settemerli it makes me so sad reading some of the previous reviews how anyone can say any thing bad about this place amazes me.From the moment we arrived (we had a car which i would recommend travelling through tuscany),we were welcomed by the beautiful owner connie she showed us to our room we had a choice of two rooms one better than the other they were decorated so beautiful ,very clean ,with lots of special touches and a gorgeous bath room the aircondition was so welcoming as it was hot,this lady was so helpful and helped us in every way she can and when she wasnt there barbara her helper was so so wonderful and kind,we love the tranquility ,the garden ,dining room and everything about this beautiful farm house, these people were so beautiful that there were another 3 couples staying there celebrating birthdays and connie and barbara cooked up a feast for them and two days later another feast which we were included and it was beautiful italian food .has for location its a great place to stay just out of florence which is easy to get to by bus only 20 min we even just went there just for dinner. and easy to get to all the other lovely tuscany towns like sienna ,san gimanio lucca etc .i would definatly recomend this piece of paradise.thankyou so much connie and your beautiful little girl viola and babara for a wonderful experience,you deserve the best good luck
