“The Bulleri’s civilised guest house has the feel of a country house yet is in easy reach of the sights. Sun pours into the large living room where sofas, an open fire and an honesty bar encourage lingering while the nine bedrooms are decorated with stylish country fabrics, pristine white paintwork and dark parquet floors. Breakfast and light meals are served on a veranda, glassed in for colder weather. The attractive pool is a big asset.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
Because it is a nice and quiet retreat after a whole day spent in the Florence city centre and its chaos: in our Relais, it’s possible to enjoy hours of peace whilst being just 10 minutes away from the Florentine beauties.
What is there to do in the area or on site?
The centre of Florence is just 3 km so the most important attractions, such as museums, galleries, and historical buildings are easily reachable.
In 20 minutes by car it is possible to reach the Chianti Classico wine area full of wineries where you can enjoy wonderful wine tastings!
At the hotel we have a beautiful swimming pool with solarium, a private spot where our guests find a fresh relief from the hot Florentine Summer. Within walking distance there is a Tennis Club, and 5 minutes from our hotel there is the beautiful Klab wellness centre. For golfers, the historical Ugolino golf club is only 20 minutes away.
What kind of breakfast do you offer?
Breakfast is served in a large gazebo whose large windows are opened during the spring and summer, letting the perfumes and colours of the garden enter, giving you a pleasant sensation as you start your day. During the winter, the heated gazebo becomes a comfortable "winter garden," letting you enjoy direct contact with nature even at this time of the year.
From the buffet, you can taste the continental breakfast, exquisite local marmalades, whole grain breads, fresh rolls, hot croissants and delicious homemade cakes or, upon request, scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheeses, served with courtesy and professionalism with elegant porcelain and silverware in perfect Florentine tradition.
Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
If our guests wish to relax staying in hotel, we are glad to offer a light lunch or full dinner, a selection of simple and genuine Italian dishes. Nothing fancy, but tasty and served in our panoramic gazebo with the usual kindness and skill by our staff. For those interested in a typical Tuscan dinner there is a very good "trattoria" close to the hotel which provides free transfer for our guests.
Which are your most popular room types, and why?
All our rooms are beautiful and comfortable because they have the same amenities and decorations. The Double De-Luxe with private patio/garden is very popular, because it’s very nice for our clients to have a private space right outside their rooms where they can spend some relaxing time, as read a book or drink a glass of wine..
