Villa Rucellai Florence (Prato), Italy

“18th Century family run B&B, nestled between its own vines and olive groves, on the outskirts of Florence. The warm decor with family antiques and pictures, give a true Italian homely feel. Simple comforts, full of character and a wonderful countryside spot from which to explore the region. ”

“This mellow old villa has been home to the Rucellai family since 1740 and makes a very special hotel in spite of the encroaching Prato suburbs. Public rooms are filled with family antiques, books and pictures; bedrooms are quite simply furnished but full of character.”
