Eridu
Reviewed 4 June 2016

We used a motorcycle to travel from Nice to Florence and in the process ended up getting a little lost with the night descending. We contacted our host who was patient and understanding and guided us to the house where he made us really welcome. Marco is a lovely host and helped us with places to eat and even though we somewhat ignored his advice about the local restaurant, Crazy Train, we had a great little meal (this place is within walking distance but I agree it would be best to have some form of transport, perhaps renting a scooter in Florence would be the best option as it is only 15 mins away and parking is no problem with 2 wheels.
The room was lovely with a nice bathroom. Breakfast was exactly what was required with cheeses, meats yoghurt so, toasts, cereals, coffee and juices. The last evening was spent with wine sitting in a beautiful garden surrounded by lemon bushes and fruit trees. The river is close by and makes a great sound to sleep by in the very comfortable bed.
Marco is a lovely host, making a much better effort with English than I did with my Italian.
Thank you for a lovely relaxing time

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.

Having breakfast while listening to jazz on the radio and learning about Firenzian culture and and traditions by the host, hardly makes it more cosy.
Beds fine. Bathroom clean and shower head excellent. Breakfast good. Silence at night. Host hospitable.
