We found this magical villa after an intense 6 months long research of the area near Florence in Tuscany Italy. Initially we invited our extended family which included kids and adults and after the family departed we invited our closest friends to join us from all over the world. Our criteria was as follows: 30 minutes from Florence, near an...

The moment we arrived, we fell in love with the place. If you're looking for a movie like Tuscany spot to relax, take in everything that is great about this amazing region, this is the spot! We like to keep visiting new places but this is one spot where the entire family said; we'd love to comeback! It combines the...

The entire friendly, hospitable service made this beautiful treasure feel like home in paradise. The location is quiet, peaceful and very beautiful. Own transport is required but taxi's are available from the local town where restaurants are good and plentiful with Florence approx 30mins by bus. If you are in this area La Sorgente di Francesca is a must stay...

Based here for a family wedding in the area. Family and friends all stayed here so it was very special. Monica and all the staff were friendly, helpful and unobtrusive which we all appreciated. Little boy loved the pool. More gorgeous than pictures on website would lead to believe. Many thanks to all the staff and Rocky!

We stayed here for a lovely family wedding which we enjoyed immensely. When we first arrived we were dropped outside the villa and had to carry lots of luggage etc up the steps, this is very unsuitable for the unfit or disabled persons. The venue is surrounded by beautiful scenery but away from any other amenities unless you have a...

Beautiful scenery and surroundings. As family we stayed here for a week recently as we were attending a wedding in the area. We arrived late at night and found it extremely difficult to find as it isn't well sign posted from the road. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating throughout our visit. Myself and my partner stayed in...

We stayed for 2 nights and we were glad we didn't book more. First of all is mandatory to pay at check in for the stay and 10% services,which is a theft and my review will explain why.

Dear Monica, Nicola, Erika and all those at Sorgente di Francesca! We have just returned from our wonderful time in Italy and are now easing ourselves back to reality.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Sorgente di Francesca bed and breakfast is a small borgo located in the gentle hills of the ancient village of Fiesole, just a few km from Florence and from its artistic and architectonic beauties.Il Borgo is composed by an ancient farmhouse with tower dated back to 1400, and by an elegant Villa whose basic structure maybe always dated back to the XV° century. In the farmyard in front of the farmhouse there are other two ancient buildings in stone where are Alexandra B&B and Monica B&B. Each B&B has a private outside area on the farmyard with umbrellas, tables and chairs.The entire estate has just been completely restored. A conservative restoration where the using of new materials has been reduced as far as we could, trying to recover the original features built hundred years ago. A conservative restoration linked to the most modern technologies to give our guests the possibility to live a piece of history with all the comfort of our times.The interiors of the bed and breakfast have been furnished with particular care combining ancient furnishings and accessories perfectly restored by old and experienced artisans with modern elements of fine design as the lights and lamps of the famous Terzani collection.From each part of the bed and breakfast, as much from the apartments as from the halls and the rooms you may enjoy a breathtaking view on the Tuscan hills. A magic place, where silence and tranquillity are just broken from the rumors of animals and from the dives of our guests into the beautiful swimming pool located just a few steps from the bed and breakfast.La Sorgente di Francesca also has 3 beautifully renovated holiday apartments in a perfect traditional Tuscan style. All apartments are located in ancient stone buildings adjacent to the farmhouse. La Sorgente di Francesca apartments may accommodate from a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 guests. ... more   less
