Lovely bed and breakfast near Florence

  • 5 of 5

Although the bed and breakfast is a bit hard to find, the accommodations are lovely and the hostess superb. Paola speaks fluent English and was happy to provide us with guidance on exploring Florence, Tuscany and Chianti. We enjoyed all three areas immensely. You definitely need a car when staying here as it is in a rural setting, though close to the Michelangelo park overlooking Florence and not far from the city walls. The breakfast prepared for us each day by Paola was scrumptious. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Lovely and cozy! Convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Charming bed and breakfast with only two rooms available to book. Paola speaks English very well and is so welcoming! Her cappuccinos are out this world! There is a wonderful Italian restaurant walking distance called BIBE. Bed was very comfy and weather was great in September. Thank you for everything! Convenient to Florence and Chianti!

Outstanding hospitality and old world charm

  • 5 of 5

I am so grateful to our host Paola for providing a week long experience to welcome us to Italy. Our time at the bed and breakfast was like a step back in time with old friends in a serene setting steeped in history. It was truly luxurious to wake up to fresh coffee and an assortment of sweet tarts and breads baked lovingly by our host. We even shared an evening meal that introduced us to many traditional Italian dishes with wines and aperitif. Our rooms reflected the comfort of history with tall ceilings and broad beams, frescoed walls and smooth terracotta floors that were a joy to walk bare foot on. Our kitchen was fully appointed and we enjoyed a living room to plan our coming days adventures. Especially appreciated was a large courtyard where we could relax in the sun with the fragrance of jasmine and honeysuckle in the air and listen to the beautiful birdsong. There is plenty of room to explore the countryside on foot or take a bus easily to the city. Paola helped us with our many questions, introduced us to new and wonderful places and shared her rich history with us. She is a kind, warm and generous host who felt like a long time friend to me. I have such happy memories of our week at the bed and breakfast and will return again. It was truly a dream come true! Many thanks.

Wunderbares Ambiente nahe Florenz

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 14 Tage in den Räumen von Familie Andreotti. Für eine fünfköpfige Familie perfekt mit zwei großen Schlafzimmern, zwei Bädern, Küche und Essbereich und großem, sehr schön begrüntem Innenhof. Es war immer sehr erholsam, aus dem touristischen Trubel der Stadt zurückzukehren in die auch bei heißem Wetter kühlen Räume und die italienische Nachbarschaft. Frau Andreotti erfreute uns jeden Morgen mit einem abwechslungsreichen Frühstück mit vielen landestypischen Spezialitäten. Mit ihrer freundlichen, aber nie aufdringlichen Art bereicherte Sie unseren Aufenthalt durch wertvolle Tips und Erklärungen. Vielen Dank!

un séjour de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été enchanté par notre réservation: situation idéale aux portes de Florence mais à l'abri de l'agitation, des petits déjeuners excellents pris dans une ravissante cours, une hôtesse accueillante et intéressante! Nous reviendrions avec plaisir pour un autre séjour!

Une villa de caractère pour un séjour reposant

  • 5 of 5

Accueil attentionné de Paola et Alessandro, propriétaires vraiment très sympathiques, qui se soucient de leurs locataires tout au long du séjour.. La villa Cantagalli (pas très facile à trouver sans GPS) est une demeure bien tenue, charmante, chargée d'histoire et d'art. Les amateurs apprécieront la chambre de l'odalisque, décorée à fresque par un ami de la famille de la mère de Paola, dans des motifs et couleurs typiques du style Liberty (Art nouveau), l'annonciation du même style face à l'entrée de la location. Le "borgo" auquel elle appartient est rustique à souhait : nous sommes bien en Toscane, et même en hiver, une certaine douceur imprègne ce paysage campagnard, à quelques kilomètres de Florence ! Certes, fin décembre, il vaut mieux apporter des lainages !

Car: recommended

At only 2 km, from the historical center of Florence (Boboli garden, Old Bridge, Signoria Square) and from the peaceful Cistercensian monastry of La Certosa, provided with busses that connect the Borgo to the historical center every 20/25 minutes, Borgo Ponte dell’Asse offers its guest a fresh and skillfully renovated place to make their vacation as pleasant as possible at every time of year.

Visit the city of Florence or the Chianti region, le marvellous Crete Senesi (the area surrounding Siena) with their breathraking landscapes and the hot springs (Bagno Vignoni, Pienza)
