Reviewed by: Bianco Casa from USA, review #1053

When: June 2005

Wonderful serene setting. Breakfast (included) was good and adequate. Accommodations were above average and very clean. Hosts were helpful and gracious.

This was advertised as an agriturismo/B&B. It is a small farm, 6 km from Fiesole, in the magnificent Mugnone valley. The family run farm consists of a modern farmhouse and a beautifully restored barn.

We happily stayed in the barn which consisted of 3 double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, including shower and bidet. The bedrooms are rented separately. There is a sitting room with a large picture window overlooking the valley. The room also contains a free-standing fireplace. All rooms are decorated in the Tuscan style. The farmhouse also has two double bedrooms but we did not see them. The breakfast room was beautifully decorated and very homey.

It was very quiet. We did socialize with other guests at breakfast. The owners live in the farmhouse and are typical Italians; warm and friendly. The rooms are 75 each and well worth it.
