“never wanted to leave”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in May 2014

This is by far one of the coziest, friendliest and most peaceful b&b's I've ever visited. The garden is so beautiful and the surroundings sublime. We stayed for several nights and used it as a base while driving around in the Chianti district, visiting Florence and other cities nearby. The breakfast was lovely with lots of homemade jams. The only thing I regret is not having dinner there. Thank you so much for having us - we definitely hope to come back someday!

“Absolutely magnificent”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Candida was a superb host who looked after us with absolute aplomb. She has created the most outstanding bed and breakfast and we cannot recommend her highly enough. Absolutely faultless hosting and food. Wow!

“A dream house!”
Reviewed 4 December 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Candida's villa is absolutely stunning. It is a special place to which Candida has put a lot of dedication. And love into it. From the impressive garden full of veggies and sculptures to the beautiful lounge with candida's hats- this place is unique and right out of a movie.

Candida received us very late at night on our arrival and had a dinner of cold meats, salad, cheeses and wine waiting for us. She also arranged the. Vineyard tours and in evening cooked us an amazing Italian home cooked meal and dessert out of this world. All of this coupled with Candida's generosity and warmth makes it an. Unforgettable experience. Highly recommended!

“An outstanding B&B”
Reviewed 1 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My wife and I spent three nights at Candida's Chianti House. It is a beautiful house in a lovely location and ideally situated to visit Florence and other Tuscan towns.
Candida's welcome was warm and personal. The interior of the traditional Tuscan house is luxuriously appointed with fine furniture and many works of art, some by Candida herself.
Dinner on the first night was exceptional, cooked with home-grown or local products and the wine was fine too. The bedroom was well-appointed and very comfortable and the bathroom all it should be. We recommend other to stay at the earliest opportunity

“Magnificent in every way”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed with Candida in April and loved every minute. Her dinners were sublime and our accommodation was superb. Candida was the perfect hostess and we cannot wait for our next visit in December. What an incredible experience; I cannot imagine anything in Tuscany being better. Thank you, Candida.
