Laura's b&b made made our Tuscany holiday. The blue room was beautiful and the views are fantastic, especially whilst in the breakfast room. Speaking of breakfast, Laura prepares a great brekky and the coffee machine was a bonus. The entire place was very clean and Laura is a friendly host who was happy to help with bus directions, parking, shopping and even did a load of washing for us! I felt terrible she did this when all we asked was if there was a washing machine - thanks heaps Laura! Only wish we could've stayed longer than a week. We will definitely be back to Tuscany and Lauras b&b.

I occasionally work as the assistant of an american antiques dealer.
I have been managing this flat in the heart of Oltrarno since June 2013. I am about to start a B&B in Chianti.
Hope to se you soon,
