Cinzia & Michel warmly welcomed us to their beautiful hotel for our weekend in Florence. The welcome included a detailed explanation of all the interesting things to see in this wonderful city and they provided us with a map and books we could borrow about the historic sights. We were then shown to a sumptuous room overlooking a renaissance garden. The room was very modern with flat screen TV, open plan wardrobe, aircon, security safe, remote lighting and a beautiful, modern marble shower-room. We then set out to explore the city with all of their highly recommended restaurants that most tourists don't know about, marked out on the map.
The following morning we were greeted with a wide selection of local and home-made produce for breakfast; freshly made scrambled eggs, breads, fresh fruit, cheeses, hams, croissants, jams and pannacotta, washed down with excellent fresh coffee, teas and fruit juices. It was a great start to the day, and of course, Cinzia and Michel were again on hand to help recommend more sights to us on our second day in Florence and for the rest of our week in Tuscany.
Each night before bed, we enjoyed complimentary liquors and local sweet wine in their beautiful renaissance lounge. The bed was very comfortable and our room was quiet and perfect for our romantic weekend away. We will definitely be returning next year and have recommended the hotel to our friends. A real bijou in the centre of Florence. Thank you again.
