La Rocca is a special place. Quite magical in its way. Views are unsurpassed. The ambience is incredible the people are wonderful..Carmignano the village nearby is friendly and pleasant. A car is a great asset but I did just manage without one but it is not for the fainthearted without a car. Wonderful place and.people and Idabella's food is fantastic.

5* air b&b! Isabella's place is one of the best air B&B's I've stayed in, I enjoyed it so much I extended my stay! Lovely old Tuscan house with lots of character - I stayed in 2 rooms - the margherita room is lovely. The house is a great set up with excellent breakfast- cereals, toast, cakes, espresso, fruit - provided that you can help yourself to and enjoy sitting on the balcony overlooking the Tuscan countryside and Florence in the distance. Isabella's dinner was some of the best food I have had on my trip - would highly recommend!! The house is excellently positioned just above the village of carmignano (short walk down/up the hill.. being at the top of the hill means you get great views from the house). The village is great with everything you need - a small cafe / bar in the square with excellent gelato and perfect for an aperitif before eating at one of the villages excellent local 'osterias' or the pizzeria - I ate in most and all had excellent food at very reasonable prices - this is authentic Tuscany and is not overly touristy at all! The village also has a couple of grocery shops selling the essentials - bread, wine, cheese, charcuterie etc I did not have a car but this was fine and a great location - there are fairly regular buses from the main square to Prato (worth a visit to the textile museum) and another village where there is a fabulous medici villa you can visit for free. Florence would also be possible for a day trip (just work out the bus and train times!). I also went on a nice short walk around a lake further down the hill (buy a picnic in carmignano!) there is also a vineyard near here - castelvecchio which you could do a tasting if booked in advance. There is lots more to do and explore if you have a car! Overall a fabulous stay and I hope to be back one day!! Thank you Isabella :)

The whole experience was disappointing. The pictures make it look very swanky, but the facility felt neglected and dirty and it was also far/ inconvenient to get to florence. Despite the lack of environment for a guests to enjoy, Niccolo was pleasant and available throughout our stay. I would not stay here again.

We didn't have a chance to meet Isabella but her family was very warm and welcoming. Her father and son greeted us and gave us great tips. For example, taking the train from a nearby town which took us to Florence city center was a life saver since driving and parking in Florence during peak season can be stressful. The villa and the surrounding area is gorgeous and gives you the experience of true Tuscany. The place is charming, old and full of history. It felt like we were sleeping in a museum. We stayed with our two young children and the only inconvenience was the shared bathroom.

Carmignano was most definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy. Isabella was wonderful! We had missed the last bus from Signa to Carmignano but she was kind enough to pick us up from Signa to get to her villa! She was very communicative and super responsive! Our room was great! Very spacious and clean. The only negative was the mosquitoes but the bed has a net that goes around and she will give you some mosquito repellents. There was no fan or AC at the place but the room stayed pretty cool at night in the middle of July. We had dinner at the restaurant she recommended and it was definitely one of my favorite meals I have ever had. Would definitely recommend Isabella's place to anyone!
