“The Place to Stay in Florence”
Reviewed June 3, 2010

Le Ginestre is a great place to stay in Florence! it is right up the hill about a 15 minute drive from the city. it is located in beautiful hills with great views. Roseanne and her husband who run the B and B are great. They are extremely nice and helpful. The B and B was very clean and comfortable-- an excellent place for couples to stay....I highly recommend it.

We stayed at Le Ginestre for two nights in March 2009. The B&B is just outside Florence. Rosanna Donati the owner was wonderful and welcoming and as we were the only guests she gave us a tour of the B&B and told us to pick any room we liked. Le Ginestre is in the hills just north of Florence with a great view. The rooms were spotless as were the bathrooms. Next time we visit Florence we will book a room there again.

Rosanna was the perfect host for my stay (6 days). Location of the B&B is in the village of Pratolino, approx 10 km north of Florence in the Mugello hills. Rosanna speaks Italian (ofcourse) but also perfect French and English. Rooms and bathrooms are superb clean (approx 70 euro/night) and have great view of the city of Florence from the garden and balcony. Fantastic breakfast (in garden or inside house, as you like) and you will get your own key for the house and gate. One thing worth mentioning. I advise to go here if you have your own transport. From the B&B busses (line 25/A) will not go to the city very often.
The location of this B&B is very convenient to vist the Mugello region and the city center of Florence, while staying in the fresh air of the hillside and..without the noise of the city.

Restaurant in Pratolino ("Zucchi") has huge outdoor terras (with great view) and very friendly staff...(appetizer/pasta/wine/coffee/desert approx 25 euro!)

We stayed at the B&B in September 07. We travelled to Italy for a family wedding. We were absolutely exhausted when we arrived. Rosanna took wonderful care of us and was so helpful with travel arrangements and recommended a fabulous restaurant--Zocchi Ristorante/Pizzeria. Rosanna's English was much better than our Italian and she made us feel very comfortable. We stayed in the apartment in the lower level which was neat, spacious and very comfortable. It spoiled us for our very small hotel room in Rome! You need a car when you stay here though-it is a bit out of the way-which makes it peaceful and quiet and relaxing. We would absolutely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone travelling to the area.

We can't say enough good things about Le Genestre. Rosanna and her husband are wonderful hosts. If you want to avoid the noise, crowds and limitations of the city lodging, especially with a car, this is a wonderful place in the hills outside of Florence, with easy and quick access to the city by either car or bus (we used both). Spacious and comfortable rooms, nice bathrooms, and very clean. We stayed first with another couple and then came back for a second stay by ourselves. Rosanna even made accommodation one night for our son who was studying in Florence. You can't go wrong here and the rates are very reasonable.
