We were looking for a place in the Tuscan countryside but close to Florence and this place was perfect! The grounds and pool were immaculate and felt like Tuscan Heaven. The rooms were a very nice size and I felt like I was in my own little villa. Lorenzo took care of anything we needed including being our guide on a Chianti tour. Definitely recommend going to the winery which includes lunch - Amazing food and Chianti! We set the tour up with Lorenzo before we arrived and he also got us the skip the line tickets to the Uffizi and recommended a wonderful place for Florentine Steak. The Cab to Florence was about $20. We were also able to take the 15 minute beautiful countryside walk into town for Mass. I definitely hope to be back one day!
Booked by chance simply based on their site (!) Has become our ref. place to be in Tuscany. Highly recommended.👍Great hosts ( thanks Lorenzo for your outstanding hospitality 🙏). Farm house setting with spacious and home like rooms in a wonderful sourounding. Small enough pool to relax after days out in the Tuscany country side. Kids and not only appreciated every day. A high A highlight: having breakfast with the company of a baby deer in 30 meters!!!! When in Tuscany choose only this small paradise!
This beautiful farm house was definitely the highlight of our visit to Florence. We came here with 2 young children and wanted to try something different that the kids can also enjoy, and this place exceeded our expectations without any doubts. The staff were extremely professional and lovely and made us feel as if we are part of the family. We enjoyed spending the mornings on the pool with beautiful green surroundings everywhere. The breakfast was served in a lovely Gazebo. The room was brilliant and included everything that we could possibly need. The hotel was only 20 minutes drive from the center of Florence and was also very close to many restaurants and grocery stores. Would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to try a top quality farm house stay in Florence that is very close to the center.
I booked this hotel by chance, didn't quite know what I was looking for but was looking for something close to Florence and in the Chianti region. When we arrived, we were really pleasantly surprised by the beautiful location, the hotel itself, the decoration, the garden, the pool. It only has about 10 rooms so it's very quiet. It's like being in one's own house and garden. The rooms are simple but comfortable. A very beautiful stay, I can only recommend and we will certainly come back. Just one comment on the down side if I may : the beds are not the most comfortable, the mattresses are a bit "springy". But otherwise, I can only say perfect!
Villa style rooms which were comfortable and charming. Staff was very helpful and arranged for last minute tours. A little out of town, but impressive accommodations. Breakfast in the Conservatory is a nice start for the day!
I have now been in the Marignolle Relais 7 or 8 times in the last 5 years.... And it is a great stay.... Really relaxing place... This time was particularly great.... We will be back for sure on the next occasion. Thanks to the staff for the great stay
This is like staying with a lovely family just outside of Florence - if your time is limited, you can enjoy the best of both worlds - i got the recommendation from Karen Brown; it was accurate - keep in mind that this is a lovely home like setting; a car is needed for exploring - although the relaise can plan everything from tours to golf. Rooms are spacious and lovely - Do not miss the restuarant Bebe! Worth the trip!
A little out of the way, but it's very nice to return to a country retreat after battling the tourists in the center of Florence. Secured by a gate it is a very quiet and safe place. Room #7 is fairly small but nicely furnished and clean. it offers an outside sitting area (too many mosquitoes in September to sit outside in the evening). Luggage can be moved via patio doors to eliminate stairs. The patio doors however can only be locked/unlocked from the inside. After swimming in the nearby hotel pool, the room has to be accessed via main entrance and down a staircase. Would be nice if patio doors be outfitted with locks. Toilet and bidet is separated by a door from the shower and sink area. The shower is of small size and the toilet area is tight as well. Instead of a shower curtain there's a plastic door which does not close properly. The plumbing is not installed by a journeyman, pipes make dripping sound in the sink area after using the shower. Do not let this deter from booking this hotel though. Bathroom fixtures look fairly new and are clean. Breakfast is a continental buffet. Good Coffee is served and there is an addition of very nice cakes. The bright conservatory is a nice place to start the day. WIFI is available but do not be surprised to find the weather forecast of your birthplace on your computer. They obviously take the info from your passport and somehow enter it into the system. Rather disturbing. What really sells this place though is the pool. Not Olympic size but big enough to cool down after a day of sight-seeing. A car is definitely needed in this area, the hotel does not offer meals. Good dinner and nice surroundings to be had at Chalet Fontana, Via San Leonardo. Cab fare into Florence city center is around EUR 16. Enjoyed our stay in this hotel and hope to return
It’s a Relais immersed in Nature Country, seems to be home (wish is like this), beautiful romantic style/design, my wife would love it (I like it too). Perfect for privacy and relax. This place had an Excellence award from Conde’ Nast. Position: Out from Firenze downtown, in the Certosa area, south, you need a car, it’s about 5-6 Km from downtown Parking: Very Good, free outdoor, you will need to walk on a country road from park to reception or room, if you have heavy luggage you better stop on front of reception Reception: Excellent, professional and friendly with a smile Comfort: Very Good, wooden floor in room, nice views, Gazebo/Veranda for breakfast, silent and spacious room, nice relaxing Lobby area, Emotional, big bathroom, I would have appreciated some more stuff in the bathroom Cleanliness: Excellent Internet: To be improved, slow and weak wifi, provided for free Television: Very Good Pillow choice: No choice In-room boiler: Yes Elevators/Stairs: Looks like it’s all at ground floor, perhaps one more, did not see any elevator, only few stairs Breakfast quantity: Very Good, I missed a cream croissants, that I am sure they would have provided if I asked for (they ask the day before to fill a form, if you have some preferences). Anyway there were 3 cakes to choose from Breakfast quality: Excellent Checkout speed: Very Good, had to wait 2-3 mins Hotel Restaurant/Bar: Not used Fitness/Spa/Pool: Not used, there is a nice small swimming pool
We spent three nights at Marignolle. The staff was very accommodating. Lorenzo gave us a tour of the hotel when we checked in and helped us with arranging taxis, restaurant reservations (and recommendations), and tour reservations. It is a gorgeous place to stay away from the noise and congestion of the inner city with the benefit of being able to get to the fantastic sights within a matter of minutes. We would absolutely stay here if we return to Florence.
