But kindly advice about your check-in time in advance so that we can wait for you.
Kindly advice if you are coming by car or by public transport .
If you come by car we will open the gate at the time you have specified (no bell at the gate ).
If you come by public transport we have to pick you up in Carmignano or Poggio a Caiano because the center of Carmignano is very closed to the bnb but it's uphill and with luggages it is too hard. The picking up from Carmignano and Poggio a Caiano on your arrival day is free of charge .From other places (ex Florence airport, Signa train station..) we ask a tip to cover fuel costs.

Enjoy your stay !
Isabella is a wonderful host. She makes every effort to make your stay in Tuscany the best it can be. Her entire family makes sure of it. Everyone is so nice you feel like this is your own Italian family. Isabella is so good with languages and is also an expert on the region. Whenever someone needed a ride, directions or help planning something for the day Isabella was accommodating. I had a great stay at B and B La Rocca. Molte grazie Isabella!
Very friendly hostess, lovely old building in rustic surroundings. Isabella cooked a beautiful meal.
We loved staying in this beautiful and antique themed villa. Isabella and her family were so accommodating and helpful. She went out of her way to help us with travel logistics and gave us lots of info on the local area. We loved visiting the tower and seeing the view from there.
Isabella's place was great. Carmignano is a nice small town and it's easy to get to other towns/cities in Tuscany. The house is unlike anywhere I've ever stayed and I met some amazing people. Highly recommended.
We loved everything about this Airbnb experience. The house and its location make for a very relaxed and authentic stay and Isabella did everything in her power to meet our needs. We almost got stuck in the centreof Florence because our rent a car place closed and she guided us how to get there by bus and sent her son to pick us up from the bus station. She then bothered to cook us dinner at 11pm and even dropped us off to the station the next morning.
Una famiglia molto bella, generosa e (website hidden) siamo ritrovati senza aspettarcelo in un film moderno di Fellini. Isabella è una grandissima persona piena di bontà e la sua cucina ci ha regalato delle serate indimenticabili e piene di atmosfera. Cè una torre dove si può fare una cena romantica in 2, con una vista spettacolare! La prossima volta riserveremo a tempo, dato che era occupato quasi tutte le sere, nelle quali ci eravamo. Per famiglie con bimbi piccoli come i nostri consiglio di cenare da Isabella la sera. Si possono mettere i bimbi a letto e stare comodamente fuori cenando e godendo il pasto fino alla fine!! I nonni fantastici, Primo, che bada i piccioni era così carino con i (website hidden) siamo sentiti bene in questa gran bella famiglia! Abbiamo dormito la prima notte per una spontanea azione nostra con 2 amici in più del previsto. Isabella e la loro famiglia sono stati molto spontanei e aperti e ci hanno preparato 2 lettini in più. I bagni si dividono con gli altri ospiti e sono semplici. La villa è piena di (website hidden) torneremo, la famiglia di Isabella e i loro genitori ci hanno incantanti con la loro arte di essere e dare. Consiglio di portare un buon spray contro le zanzare, che in Toscana sono molto testarde, sopra a tutto i bimbi ne possono soffrire. La rete zanzare c era su ogni letto, solo che riescono ad entrare comunque. Grazie famiglia!
Isabella was a very kind host. She graciously went out of her way to pick me up when I got off at the wrong bus stop. Her house is stunning, just like something out of Jane Austen. The village she lives in is charming and the views of the surrounding farmlands took my breath away. I would definitely recommend staying with Isabella and can't wait until I get a chance to come back!
