We stayed at La Sorgente di Francesca for a week in June and absolutely loved the place. We were 4 adults and 2 kids. The kids had so much fun here and we enjoyed the pool every day. The location is great and only 20 minutes by car to get to Florence. The restaurant up the street is absolutely worth a try. I get the comment about the breakfast selection. Unfortunately breakfast was the same throughout the entire time we were there and we had hoped for some sort of change in selection, but what was offered was still pretty good. We also tried dinner a couple of times and it was ok. The only negative thing, my husband needed to use the Internet to check in with his office once a day and Internet connection is really bad and slow :-( Monica and her staff are wonderful and very helpful.
But overall, we are so glad we found this place and stayed for a week.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Sorgente di Francesca bed and breakfast is a small borgo located in the gentle hills of the ancient village of Fiesole, just a few km from Florence and from its artistic and architectonic beauties.Il Borgo is composed by an ancient farmhouse with tower dated back to 1400, and by an elegant Villa whose basic structure maybe always dated back to the XV° century. In the farmyard in front of the farmhouse there are other two ancient buildings in stone where are Alexandra B&B and Monica B&B. Each B&B has a private outside area on the farmyard with umbrellas, tables and chairs.The entire estate has just been completely restored. A conservative restoration where the using of new materials has been reduced as far as we could, trying to recover the original features built hundred years ago. A conservative restoration linked to the most modern technologies to give our guests the possibility to live a piece of history with all the comfort of our times.The interiors of the bed and breakfast have been furnished with particular care combining ancient furnishings and accessories perfectly restored by old and experienced artisans with modern elements of fine design as the lights and lamps of the famous Terzani collection.From each part of the bed and breakfast, as much from the apartments as from the halls and the rooms you may enjoy a breathtaking view on the Tuscan hills. A magic place, where silence and tranquillity are just broken from the rumors of animals and from the dives of our guests into the beautiful swimming pool located just a few steps from the bed and breakfast.La Sorgente di Francesca also has 3 beautifully renovated holiday apartments in a perfect traditional Tuscan style. All apartments are located in ancient stone buildings adjacent to the farmhouse. La Sorgente di Francesca apartments may accommodate from a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 guests. ... more less
