My boyfriend and I were surprised about just how far the B&B is outside of Florence without a car. We made it to the property and were amazed by the beauty of the gardens and the surrounding hills. We were warmly greeted by the host and given a nice lunch of some salami and bread and a delicious bottle of wine to enjoy in the garden. The room was nice and clean and the bathroom above average for a hostel/b&b. We were shocked to find out that the nearest restaurant was very close but across the river, and the nearest place to cross was an hour walk away. Without a place to eat in town at this hour we decided to buy ingredients and make dinner in the kitchen which we later were told that guests were not allowed to use which was slightly off-putting considering a photo of the kitchen is the primary piece of advertisement. Upon checking out we were told that the bottle of wine was not complementary but that he would make an exception. We were puzzled, felt a little unwelcome, but overall it was still an unforgettable place to stay despite a few misunderstandings and exchanges with the host that were possibly lost in translation. Just come with a car or be prepared for long walks and busses that may or may not show up.
