“Great experience at Astieto!”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

Antoinetta is great host. We only stayed one night, but we had a wonderful time visiting with her and staying at her B&B. She hooked us up with a wonderful little restaurant in San Godenzo and also gave us some great advise for our visit to Florence the next day. The room was very comfortable and quiet and we had a really good night's sleep. Recommended!

My girlfriend (who is now my wife) recommended this place and now I know why. The location is one good reason - on the top of a hill, in the forest with a picturesque view. But Antonietta, who runs the B&B, is a real wonder. She does everything to make your stay as comfortable and unforgettable as possible. She speaks perfect English (British) and always finds time for you.
NOTE: there are 2 rooms in the main building, but we stayed in the separate building which is a small, romantic hut.
You definitely need a car to get there as the way up to the hill is steep and quite long. It is easy to get to Florence: leave the car at the train station in Dicomano (free parking) and have a 40-minute ride to Firenze - Santa Maria Novella. Prepare the fare (6 EUR for return) because the ticket machine can run out of change and in this case, you will get only a paper and you have to queue in in Florence to get your money back.

We enjoyed our stay at the Astieto Bed and Breakfast in Tuscany. It is peaceful, quiet, and comes with a picturesque view. Our hostess made us feel very welcome and comfortable. I would definitely recommend Astieto as a place to stay if you are looking for a B&B that is a bit removed from all the hustle and bustle of the big city of Florence/Firenze. Astieto is about 20 miles away from Florence, and about 2 miles outside of the small town of Dicomano. But don't think you are so far away from town that it will be an inconvenience for you. The small town of Dicomano is just a short jaunt away with its grocery stores, bankomatics (ATM), and a train depot which takes you straight into Florence. The people of Dicomano were exceptionally friendly and helpful too!

I would strongly advice you to have a Car Rental if you are considering staying at Astieto. Even though a train and bus could get you to the base of the mountain, it is a steep walk up the road to the B&B. If you were carrying luggage it would be very unpleasant. Also, keep in mind that even though it is a short distance from the highway to the B&B, the road can be treacherous if the weather turns bad. It snowed while we were staying at Astieto and the road became very slippery. We had to purchase chains to put on the tires to get us up the hill.

All in all, we loved our stay at Astieto and would definitely stay there again if we were to ever return to Tuscany.
