Reviewed May 11, 2014

wonderful, friendly place to stay, US friendly, and very helpful. We were preparing for a group tour so just wanted an evening to get over jetlag and a day to get oriented. Sara was SO helpful--aside from being a very lively, inspiring young woman, she gave us all kinds of useful information that was historical, practical, and interesting. When she offered to make a dinner reservation for us and the restaurant didn't answer the phone, we found out (later) that she ran down to appear in person for us! Also got us an early in the morning cab to the airport in Florence. Definitely a place with cherished history, family, and community involvement.

Very welcoming homey atmosphere with attention to details in a super clean setting suitable for couples and families.
Warm and spacious rooms with high-quality classic Italian style furniture.
Try Sara's special omelette stuffed with bread, ham and cheese with side cherry tomatoes.
Complimenti Sara!

Stayed here for 2 nights.
A very friendly, informative and entertaining hostess. All guests ended up staying an hour at breakfast listening to Sara's anecdotes.
Rooms were clean. Converted convent. Rooms decorated by Sara herself.
If travelling with a car one downside for some people would be that the free parking was close but required travelling up a lot of steps.

Fiesole was just a short walk from the B&B.
Sara's restaurant suggestions were excellent along with her other tourist tips for Fiesole and Florence.

If you want hospitality, charm, Italian culture,in a small town environment,then Le Cannelle in Fiesole is perfect for you. The towns situation provides easy access to Florence and it's owner Sara is a walking Wikipedia of knowledge . The owner provides beautiful and specious rooms with wonderful breakfasts while she helps you plan you day excursions. I highly recommend this charming B&B.

Room Tip: There are five rooms and all ware beautiful!

Oh, gosh! I love this place! In November 2012, while touring through Italy, I asked for suggestions on where to stay in Firenze (Florence). I had two different people suggest we stay in Fiesole, just a 20 minute bus ride from the main train station. We found Sara and Le Cannelle and it was truly a highlight of our trip! Sara was so helpful in giving suggestions on where to visit/eat, including making reservations to see the David and for our dinners. Her breakfasts went above and beyond! It was really great to stay at Le Cannelle! I would recommend it to anyone travelling through Florence or looking for a getaway. I hope to visit again!

Le Cannelle has almost made me a convert to B&B's from more traditional hotels. I'm not a real fan of B&B's because some of them (at least those that are reasonably priced) are frankly just not very nice. Le Cannelle is an exception. The room was extremely well maintained, i.e. spotless. Sara Corsi is the perfect hostess. She is warm, friendly, knowledgeable. I don't think that I have ever felt more at home in a hotel/B&B as I did staying there. After 3 weeks in Italy, my wife deemed Sara's breakfasts as the best that we had. The location in Fiesole is perfect as a base for seeing Florence, Siena, etc. The bus system to and from Florence is easy.

My wife and I journeyed to Fiesole (from Ireland) for a family wedding and were fortunate to have booked Le Cannelle, apart from being so close to Florence, easy bus trips etc., excellent facilities, spotless & comfortbale accomodation, good value, it was the warmth and tremendous enthusiasm from the wonderful lady of the house - Sara - that made our stay so pleasant. Breakfast were great fun - and really delicious, home cooked as you arrived in the morning. If you are in the Florence area and you want a quiet break from the city bustle, take the 7 bus to Fiesole and treat yourself to an enjoyable time in the warm hospitality Le Cannelle, it's the best Céad Míle Fáilte you will find anywhere.
