I just finished a 4-night stay at Residenza Casanuova. First, this is a floor of a beautiful 18th century house that has been in Bea and Max's family since shortly after WWII. Max and Bea are a brother and sister team, and they both are wonderfully hospitable (and both speak excellent English, much better than most, which made my stay more relaxed). I decided to drive to Florence from Turin on a whim, having never been to Italy before. I am on an extended solo vacation with no particular agenda other than to soak up the cultures I encounter and to experience the art, food, wine, sights, and sounds. Also, I'm a writer; so, I try to pick places to stay that will offer an element of serenity once I step off the sidewalks. The rates are surprisingly low, the breakfasts are amazing (I'll likely be in withdrawal at this time tomorrow) with invitations to espresso or cappuccino in addition to excellent "American" coffee, breads, cheeses, prosciutto/salami, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, etc. The rooms are spotlessly clean and decorated with beautiful Florentine furniture pieces. Also, I found the internet service to be a bit more reliable than previous destinations in both France and Italy. The location is just on the perimeter of the center, so all the major cultural venues are within easy walking distance. I drove and was able to find a public garage very nearby to park my rental car that was thankfully unneeded the past four days. I heartily and without reservation recommend Residenza Casnuova!

Cari Massimiliano e Beatrice desideriamo ringraziarvi e complimentarci per la vostra accoglienza superba. Abbiamo apprezzato la bellezza e l'eleganza della casa, la comodità e al contempo la tranquillità della zona. Come unico suggerimento per rendere ancora più esclusiva la vostra accoglienza, quello di introdurre nella colazione prodotti locali o di coltivazione biologica. Tanti auguri per tutto.

We were 2 sets of sisters that stumbled upon this great gem via Tripadvisor. One word to describe it- beautiful. Conveniently located not to close or too far from the Duomo. Max and Bea were awesome hosts. Their recommendations top notch---they were always right!!! Don't hesitate...BOOK it!!! Discover the wonders of Florence...you won't regret it :)
