“Massimiliano Leonardi and Jennifer Howard’s latest venture opened in 2005 after two years of extensive renovation and joins their two B&Bs in Rome to complete a trio of heavenly guesthouses. Hidden behind vast wooden doors, this one in Florence occupies a beautiful old palazzo. Inside, Jennifer’s talent as an interior designer is evident: each room is different, each equally stunning. There are fresh flowers in all and honesty bars on every floor. A real and very stylish home away from home.”
