“Perfection is the only way to describe this B&B.”
Reviewed May 15, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here last month and on our return home our first priority is to write this review - our very first review we have ever written on trip advisor. We were three adults travelling with a four year old girl. We used our GPS to find the B&B without any trouble. Loved the initial impression on the outside and this beautiful B&B did not let us down once we entered. We were met by Giovanni who made us very welcome and gave us coffee and cake on the upstairs terrace. We stayed for three nights and were sad to leave. Meet Irene, Paolo and their daughter Beatrice. My daughter had a wonderful time playing with Bea. Food well what can we say - breakfast was wonderful and one night we had tea which was devine. If we ever head back to Italy it would be a must to stay at Valdirose.

Stayed April 2012, traveled with family

We could not have chosen a lovelier place for our 3 days in Toscana. Valdirose is beyond words with the most gracious and wonderful hosts. When we arrived early, our room was not yet ready but we were invited to the terrace on the 2. floor for wine and bruschetta, served by Giovanni with a big, welcoming smile. When we told them that my husband had been "relieved of" his wallet as we got on the train in Pisa later on, they said we could pay our remaining bill once back home, and even offered to lend us money should we need some! These are the loveliest of hosts and their B&B is just as described by everyone else, home away from home. Grazie mille, Irene, Paulo, Giovanni, Graziella and beautiful little Bea who helped out at breakfast one morning.

We stayed here for the first time in April 2011, and could not have had a lovelier experience! The owners, Irene and her husband, and her father Giovanni, were the best hosts one could ever have. This is the true definition of a Bed and Breakfast! We were made to feel absolutely at home. The B&B building is beautifully and artfully decorated. We stayed in the Reve room, and though it was smaller than I expected, it was still great.

I highly recommend staying here if you are planning on visiting Florence. It is approximately a 20 minute drive from the city, and a short train ride. Irene's father Giovanni was kind enough to drive us to the train station on one occasion.

We miss you!! Abbraccio, e a presto. -- Moumita and Nabeel

This was our second visit to Valdirose and our friends joined us this time. Paolo, Giovanni,Irene and Graziella are warm and happy hosts who go out of their way to make guests feel right at home. The breakfasts are ready and waiting, the rooms are immaculate and well appointed. The location is perfect for enjoying Florence (only 10 minutes by train) and all the other wonderful large and small communities that we so love in Italy. We can only say "Bravo" to this wonderful family and we hope to see you soon.

We recently returned from a wonderful stay at Valdirose. All the lovely furnishings and features you read about in other reviews are true. However, it is the joy of the owners and their unobtrusive yet delightful presence that make Valdirose so perfect. From recommending and booking restaurants to interminably running us backwards and forward to the train station, restaurant or market (we did not hire a car) they were unfailingly delightful. Our many thanks to Paulo and Irene, Giovanni and Graziella for making our stay such a restful and memorable. We shall return.

In addition. The first floor terrace is wonderful for sundowners. Do eat with the team - great Tuscan food and super value - just let them know in the morning.

Valdirose was the perfect accomodation for our Italy trip and I would highly reccomend this B&B to anyone. Irene, Paulo, Giovanni were so generous and accomodating. After arriving to Valdirose after a long trip from Florida to Florence, Paulo drove me to the local Pizzeria in his car and translated the entire menu for me, we then ordered and brought the food back to Valdirose for a nice meal with my family. The location of Valdirose was perfect as it allowed us not to have to drive into the city with our rental car and there is a train station within minutes of the property that goes directly to Florence.

Absolutely the best base of operations one could have in the Firenza area. The Valdirose was charming, furnished beautifully, and we felt as if we were home with family. Our thanks to Irene, Paulo, Giovanni, and Graziella for all of their efforts and making us feel so welcome on our first visit to Italy.
