Absolutely lovely! Donatella is very welcoming and caring and provides the most wonderful natural food for breakfast. Her garden is a delight to look at. My single room was perfectly adequate. It is a lovely area to stay in and away from the tourist crowds and there are some nice restaurants within reasonably easy walking distance. About 25 minutes walk...

We spent three nights at the B&B and found Donatella to be a treasure. She was welcoming, professional and a wealth of information for us. We were given recommendations for local restaurants, museums, use of maps, bus schedules and bookings for a taxi. Donatella even prepared breakfast early for us one morning as we had a tour. The B&B was...

Donatella made our visit to Florence a delightful one, from recommendations of restaurants (definitely try the local favorites), to suggestions on seeing the best sites in Florence. The room was nicely sized and had the added benefit of a private balcony. Given the amount of walking we did in Florence (and climbing the Duomo) we opted for the Taxi from...

Charming B&B in Florence! Donatella is an incredibly warm and generous hostess and an incredible cook! I met several others who have consistently stayed with her on several visits to Italy so clearly I'm not the only one who's discovered this gem! While it was hard to say goodbye to Florence it was even harder to say goodbye to what...

We had a wonderful experience at Donatella's B&B! We got the large room with two beds and a private bathroom on the top floor. It's a beautiful room with a cute balcony and nice view. Donatella went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and help us plan our sight-seeing adventures. She makes a delicious breakfast for you everyday....

Had a great time visiting this B&B, the owner Donatella is a very good host. She will take care of you and helps you find the best places in Firenze. not even 5 min walk to the city centre and great terrace around the B&B When visiting Firenze, book this B&B!
