It is so difficult to describe the wonderful stay we had at this B&B and also warmth and affection we received from Stefania and Luciano. They treated us like their own guests and looked after us so well that at the time of leaving Florence we felt that we had gained 2 friends in Florence. The B &B is also... More

This was a great place to stay at. The room was tidy, good size and the bathroom was lovely. What makes this place special though is the hosts - they are amazing, add little touches to your stay and made me feel very welcome.

My mother and her partner stayed here in May 2014. They found the place charming and most comfortable. Above all, they found the hosts superb - they were friendly, hospitable and could not do enough to make them feel at home and to help them enjoy their stay.

You will not find more gracious, helpful hosts than Stefania and Luciano. They love their city and willingly share their knowledge with their guests. Our room was spacious and welcoming. We started each day with strong coffee and pastries.

Luciano and Stefania were very wonderful hosts. Their hospitality was amazing, with attention shown in every detail. They have made the B&B my very sweet home away from home.
