Where do I begin? Well, Baker and Cristian have created a sanctuary in the middle of Tuscany. From the location of this B&B, the charm, the decor and the cleanliness, this place is just amazing. But the most amazing part is how special this team makes you feel. Since the moment we checked in last week, we were pampered every step of the way. We stayed for a week and wish that we could have stayed longer . Fabio, the head chef, and his assistant Rossella create perfections every day in the restaurant. Sara was so helpful in planning our days, and Pascualina kept our room and the entire place spotless. Thank you for making our trip so memorable and perfect.
We made a tour through the North of Italy and stayed in several B&B but this was the highlight of our trip. We got almost half of an apartment for ourselves and the room was wonderfully decorated and very clean. I am not that easy to please when it comes down to hygiene but really this place was impeccable. Joël is a wonderful host and does everything he can to help his guests. As we arrived on a Sunday and the ticket offices for the public transport were closed- he had got us tickets beforehand and told us where we had to buy them so as not to fall in the tourist trap. He made reservations in a nearby car park so we did not need to trouble about that. He gave us loads of information as to what to visit, where to eat etc. As me and my husband do not speak a word of Italian, it was lovely to stay in a B&B where the owner speaks French fluently. I could go on for some time trying to convince everyone what a wonderful place this is. Excellent breakfast, not far from center, wonderful owner. Thank you again Joël.
This is a nice place to stay if you do not mind being too far from the center of the city.........Joel was kind and helpful, but the transportation system in that area is not the best.
The room was clean, but we had breakfast (which was very good) served in our room which proved to be very uncomfortable in many ways.
A great experience though not sure that we would want to repeat.
We'll now know where to stay when we come back to Florence. This B&B is a high level accommodation with luxurious rooms/small apartments. Ideally located in a calm neighborhood, we could either reach the city center on foot (15-20 minutes) or by bus in 5 minutes. The building is a typical florentine old house. The rooms are decorated with taste and you immediately feel at home. We were welcomed by the owner Joel, who made our stay really perfect. He gave us nice tips and advices on where to go, what to see, where to eat. The owners don't live here so we really felt like we had our own place. In the morning Joel would serve us a wonderful home made breakfast with delicious fresh products. When we came back in the evening the rooms were made and cleaned. The rooms have air conditioning, wifi, tv, a nice balcony, spacious bathrooms, a lot of space for storing our luggage. Even the inexpensive minibar in each room made our stay perfect, so that we didn't need to buy drinks for the night. It is obvious to say that we we'll definitely come back in the future. Thanks for a magnificent stay!
This quaint little B&B is located approximately 15 minutes walk away from central Florence. The location is a little noisy, but being a busy city this isn't surprising. There are currently two rooms available with a third being renovated. Joel is the resident artist so expect to find lots of bright colours and modern abstract art. The rooms are well furnished, decorated to a high standard and were spotlessly clean.
The owners are very friendly and accommodating and make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive. They are happy to chat but aren't intrusive. They both speak a good level of English (as well as German and Italian) so it's easy to communicate.
Breakfast deserves a special mention, they only serve vegetarian food, but you'd be hard pressed to find better. Home made cakes, fresh fruit, toast, cheese, eggs and the best coffee we've ever had. There was so much (delivered to the room each morning) that we were able to take the "leftovers" out with us to snack on during the day. In summary it was so good that my decidedly carnivorous other half didn't complain once!
On their website they advise that toiletries are provided, in reality these are only samples so you'll need to bring your own. It's a nice touch but wouldn't keep you feeling fresh for the duration of your stay.
There was a little minibar in our room and the prices were very reasonable by anyone's standards.
