My husband found this delightful B & B by doing some research. It's in a peaceful location along the river Arno. Parking is limited but is enough however once we'd arrived we didn’t need the car. Just up the road you can catch the bus to Florence. They run very frequently. Claudio who runs the B & B is a very jovial character who clearly loves his two dogs. They're friendly but haven't learnt that over breakfast they are not needed. Our room was in the tower. It's very old, 13th century and full of interesting features with a narrow round staircase up to the room. My husband managed our cases up there but it's not easy. I'm sure Claudio would help if required. The bathroom with shower etc is modern and is excellent. The best part of our stay was the breakfast. A very good selection of breads, jam and savoury meats. There was yogurt and fresh fruit which is perfect for me. Would definitely recommend.
