The very cozy and romantic atmosphere of this house combines the authenticity of Italian way of life where food and art come together.

Had a great stay, Eleonora made me feel very welcome in her beautiful home. Lovely host, fantastic food and amazing location, a highlight of my trip to Florence
We had a wonderful time staying with Eleonora during our trip to Italy. Her hospitality, warmth, and friendliness truly made us feel welcome. Her lovely home is artfully decorated and cozy, and the private rooms are comfortable and very clean. We also appreciated her expert cooking class and urge visitors to take advantage of her culinary talents and skills!
Eleonora has a lovely home that is full of character and charm. Our room was spacious and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Her breakfasts were absolutely delicious! The best part of our stay though was Eleonora herself. She is an extremely warm and engaging host and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with her. Would highly recommend.
Abbiamo passato due giorni bellissimi in questa casa immersa nel verde. La padrona di casa, Eleonora, ci ha accolti con la sua cortesia e genuinità, facendoci sentire come a casa. Ottima colazione, ideale per un weekend di pieno relax.
A home away from home. Eleonora was so prompt and patient with communication, esp. when we got lost (placed wrong name in GPS oops). She graciously welcomed us in the rain with her umbrella ready! We were greeted by a beautiful home and a toasty fireplace. The bedroom is clean and I had such a good rest! Food and drink were impeccable and delicious! We can see the pride, joy and professionalism in all her work.
Such a lovely and spoilt stay for us :) :) thank you, Eleanora!
This little gem was the highlight of our trip through Tuscany. Eleonora's home was exactly as we imagined and more - we were very reluctant to leave! The house and garden are beautiful, the room was very comfortable and the atmosphere easy-going and welcoming. We also chose to do some cooking lessons and had a stunning lunch in the garden - highly recommended. This is one of those finds on airbnb that you want to tell everyone about and keep returning to yourself.
My husband & I had a wonderful time @ Eleanora 's B&B. Eleonora was a wonderful host & we couldn't ask for a better experience in Tuscany. Her home is beautiful, the atmosphere is relaxing, she is warm & inviting, & the food she prepared was amazing. We visited a local vineyard, selected produce from a local farm, & enjoyed cooking w/ Eleonora. We would highly recommend a stay here & hope to make it back again soon !

Ciao,sono felice che tu stia visitando la mia pagina e spero vivamente che avremo il piacere di conoscerci. Una delle cose che amo di più infatti è viaggiare e quando sto qui in Italia poter ospitare viaggiatori mi riempie di allegria. Amo il cibo e mettere a tavola le persone è per me una gioia. Le 5 cose di cui non posso fare a meno sono: la musica,un buon paio di scarpe da ginnastica,i miei cani, un buon film e visitare il mercato delle spezie ovunque io vada!
