Casavaliversi B&B
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This house is beautiful, with so much attention to detail.

We arrived when it was raining and Mirella even made herself wet bringing me an umbrella!
She made lovely coffee and, despite a language barrier, was beyond welcoming & gracious. We felt so comfortable and indulged here.

It is such a lovely town with beautiful restaurants in the hills. It is advisable to rent a car when you stay there but do ask Mirella & Simona for advice on routes as there are lots of tricky one-ways!

Absolutely lovely, spacious rooms, nicely cleaned, friendly hosts!

We arrived at 4pm after driving in from Bergamo and no one was at home! We phoned multiple times and no one responded. Venere.com was willing to cancel our reservation without penalty but as we were really looking forward to staying here we went into town to await a response. It took almost TWO HOURS for Mirella to arrive home! In the end she was rude and despite having rented all four rooms she wasn't even sorry! BEWARE! You are expected to know exactly when you will arrive because despite what her website says regarding opening times, she closes the place at her will!

We chose this B&B specifically because of its good reviews but were very disappointed. Yes, the setting is lovely, but we could not even sit outside and enjoy it because of all the biting ants everywhere. We brought this to Mirella's attention and she shrugged her shoulders. It was awful! They were in the grass, all over the patios and furniture--everywhere! Such a shame. Also agree with reviewers who said it was noisy, ie you could hear what was going on in the other rooms. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was nice, but Mirella must have been having a bad day because she was not at all pleasant. It happens! Such a shame because we were really looking forward to relaxing here. Simone, on the other hand was as sweet as could be and obviously embarrassed by her aunt's poor behaviour.

Room Tip: We stayed in all four of them so I am happy to answer questions regarding choice.

Wow , what can we say that's not already been said ! Fantastic and elegant house in a beautiful setting and then there's Mirella and her niece Simona. Nothing is too much trouble, advice, bookings, etc, ask and they will try to sort it out. The breakfasts are superb and the evening meals fantastic both in content and value, you will need to be hungry! Unless you are a keen walker, you really need a car, which is an experience in itself! For a visit to Florence we parked at the station free and took the train, around 3 euros return. The week we were here the temperature averaged 35 C, but as the rooms have aircon it's lovely and cool at night. Our home flight was in the evening and Miriella let us leave the luggage at the villa till later telling us to make ourselves a cup of tea when we collected it! Overall a superb holiday in a magical place, we will be back!

Room Tip: The "balcony "room overlooks the olive trees , towards Florence

We decided to stay at this elegant country home for 4 nights. Our room had a beautiful view of the olive grove, and if you looked carefully, you could see the Duomo in Florence. Mirella was the perfect hostess, and graciously came to our rescue a few times with a shuttle service from the train station to Casavaliversi. The breakfasts were delicious and we had some great chats with Simona.
We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

We found Casavaliversi recommended on TripAdvisor and decided to stay there because it was convenient to the airport, to the Sesto Fiorentino train station for day trips into Florence, and close to the rental car return before our train trip to Rome. We could not have been more pleased! Casavaliversi is located on a quiet hillside in a beautiful olive grove with a wonderful view of the valley and Sesto Fiorentino. Mirella, the proprietor, was friendly and accommodating and could not have been more helpful. The breakfast and morning coffee was fabulous!
One caution: we had a rental car and a GPS but it was still a bit difficult to find Casavaliversi, but once we did it was worth the search. Also - be careful of the restricted traffic zones. The cameras will photograph your rental car plates and the rental company will pass on your contact information to the police and you will receive an expensive ticket.

We had decided to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city and Casavaliversi was just the perfect choice! The place is just like a home, tastefully decorated by Mirella who is just a gem and so hospitable; not to forget Simona and Lando. The garden is amazing, full of olive groves, so peaceful - just what we needed. I recommend this place 200% - We will defintely be going back there.
Good idea to hire a car...

Room Tip: Ask for the top room!

Staying here was one of the highlights of our Tuscan holiday. Mirella is the perfect hostess, and she and her husband as well as making us at home, sat down with us to have a terrifically good dinner which she had prepared, accompanied by excellent wines and finishing with Cantucci con Vin Santo followed by aged rum!
We were welcomed by Mirella's daughter (and granddaughter) who speaks fluent English and shown to our pretty, clean and spacious room overlooking the garden, acres of olive trees, and a view of Florence's skyline in the distance from the vantage of the hill 7KM to the North of the City where Casavaliversi is situated.
The experience was worth 5 times the realtively modest amount we paid.

Room Tip: There aren't many rooms but all are good. Call Mirella personally, and try to book well in advan...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Casavaliversi B&B was spawned by the two great passions that have always driven Mirella and her family: hospitality and a love of the beautiful. An antiquarian and interior designer, Mirella wanted to create a warm, family environment where she could welcome her guests as friends, surrounded by artistic objects and period furnishings that create for them a relaxing atmosphere, at once elegant and contemporary. The house, originally an old farmhouse, has been renovated using naturally-treated materials and, while fully respecting the original architecture, equipped with all modern comforts: air conditioning, Wi-Fi connection, en-suite bathroom and indoor car park. Welcoming you every morning, you will find a splendid breakfast prepared personally by Mirella with her home made cakes and marmalades. If you prefer a savory breakfast, you will find typical Tuscan prosciutti and salamis all served with fresh wood oven baked bread. In Spring and summer, it's possible to have breakfast served in the garden whereas in the colder months, you will be seated next to a cozy fireplace. Those who want to plunge into Tuscan art can avail of guided tours of the little Romanesque churches in the surrounding hills, or follow Mirella's precious advice about places to visit and must-see exhibitions. For those in search of relaxation: shiatsu massages in the large garden, nearby golf course and tennis courts or long walks through the reaches of olive groves. Whether you're travelling for business or pleasure, Casa Valiversi is ready to welcome and surprise you: the hospitality of a bed & breakfast and the discreet appeal of a relais di charme.. ... more   less
