We were fortunate to find this jewel of a B&B in Florence. We stayed four nights in October 2012. Previous to our trip I had spent many hours on the internet pouring over properties. I had a long list of wants and Relais Grand Tour surpassed our expectations. We stayed in the Mirror Junior Suite conveniently on the ground floor (owners live upstairs). Three rooms share a wonderful private outdoor patio area. All the B&B's make promises but this one delivered. They are in a quiet residential neighborhood within a six minute walk of the Duomo, 20 minute taxi ride from the airport. This was the only B&B that offered us a Senior discount (60 years+). Comfortable king size bed, large tub big enough for two, breakfast around the corner was very substantial. The owners gave us wonderful recommendations for local restaurants, were attentive to our every need and volunteered their help at every turn. We would not hesitate to stay with them on any return trip to Florence.
