I was naturally attracted to Casa Schlatter when I discovered that Alessander's grandfather was an artist and this had been his home. His artwork adorned the walls. He was an iron worker and he made a remarkable bust of himself that is the corner stone of the entrance way. When you enter the reception room after walking under a canopy of wyisteria you stand before a breath taking scene of Florence that he painted in the 1800's. It must have been 10 by 20 feet. It is magnificent. The Casa is a ten minute walk from the center of town. The rooms that are available are beautifully decorated and comfortable. I felt embraced with charm and good will. Alessander gave us great recommendations for eateries and Gelato!!!! She baked us the best croissants I have ever had and our morning meals were delicious. Our stay was belissimo!!!!!

This beautiful bed and breakfast is run by the great granddaughter of the painter of all the paintings you see in the photo's. My boyfriend and I stayed in the room with the blue bed. That one is actually a 4 person bedroom. It has a beautiful spiral stairway in the room which lead to the other two beds. The breakfast was splended and the bathroom very clean. I strongly advise you to stay at this guesthouse!
