We stayed for almost two full weeks at this Guest House. It was truly wonderful! Stefania and Luciano were fabulous hosts! You have enough privacy to do your own thing but they were always available to help you work out your plans or make suggestions of things you might enjoy. They were knowledgeable about everything! They made wonderful suggestions of...

The best part about staying at this B&B was the wonderful hosts, Stefania and Luciano. They will go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy everything that Florence has to offer. We managed to visit Florence on a Monday, when many of the attractions are closed. They explained to us what was still open on Monday and...

A lovely little bed and breakfast located outside the heart of Florence. If you're looking for accommodation that is very well priced and away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre then this is the perfect place. Public transport access is very good as well as some nice restaurants that are in the area. The couple running the...

From the moment you are greeted you know you made the right choice in staying at Al Ventaglio. The couple who run this lovely B&B (Luciano & Stefania) are warm, cultured and only content if you are comfortable and happy. It's a real pleasure to be here!

At first I was a little disappointed that this B&B was a bus ride out of the city because I found the buses a little difficult to negotiate (I've travelled all over Europe and found this one if the trickiest places) However I realised that there are a hundred museums and art galleries and hundreds of tourists in Florence; if...

It is worth staying here just to meet Stefania and Luciano. They embody the definition of hospitality. When I arrived I was not feeling well; I felt light headed and weak, they quickly made every effort to care for me making me tea and even taking my blood pressure. When I felt better they joyfully shared things we should see...

This was one of the best B&B's we have stayed in. We took two rooms for our family. The rooms/toilets were spotlessly clean, cleaned everyday and was decorated tastefully. Espresso machines and kettles meant that you could always have coffee and tea, which was all well stocked. Breakfast was good continental fare - croissants, cakes, cheese, ham, jam, juice, crackers...

We lived there for five nights in two different beautiful rooms. The space was large, and the breakfast was plenty and various. Most important thing is that Stefania and Luciano are extremely kind. Although their English were not perfect, communication was not a problem. They introduced us many delicious restaurants and interesting places, and even drived us to several spots...

After two days here, we left florence feeling like we had made friends with the owners. The room was nice and comfortable. Perfect for the two of us. Its about a 15 minutes walk from the Duomo, so the location is nice as well.
