Bed and Breakfast La Martellina

Via della Martellina 19 , Fiesole, 50061 Italy (Show map)


An ancient mill on the Arno dating back to the 13th century and still intact in its charm. It is completely surrounded by nature and located in the vicinity of a small village offering a bar, a newsstand, some shops and a restaurant. The center of Florence lies less than 5 Km away and can be easily reached by car, by bus or by a bicycle path running along the riverside. There are ample and well-equipped outdoor spaces (the garden and the terrace give onto the river). In the warm days breakfast is served in the garden. The bedrooms, baths and a separate hall occupy a wing that is completely reserved to guests. In a finely restored setting, the bedrooms are furnished with antiques and are provided with satellite-dish television. A refrigerator is available. Private parking and possibility of bikes chartering. The B&B is immersed in the landscape of green hills that form the valley of the river. It is a veritable small oasis of tranquillity. From here one can easily visit the entire artistic wealth and heritage of the city thanks to the excellent connections (by bus, bicycle or car) or dedicate one’s time to exploring the environs of Florence, avoiding city traffic. The bus stop is located only 200 meters from the B&B in the village square. This bus line (14A) with frequent runs crosses the entire historical center.

Claudio our host and owner was wonderful, this inn is located on the Arno River outside of town and is very easy to get to via local city bus, we stayed in town most of our travels in Italy but this one was our favorite, Very relaxing and friendly,

Terms and Conditions

  • Minimum Stay: two days
  • Accepted payments Other, AMEX, VISA, Mastercard, Cash
  • Deposit Amount Required: 50,00 euro
  • Cancellations: Any reservation must be cancelled no later than three weeks in advance to receive full refund, less the 5.00 euro administrative fee. No refund is given in all other circumstances. We are a very small facility (we have only four guest rooms), and that forces us to be rather restrictive in our cancellation policy. As a matter of fact, if you cancel a reservation, it means 25% of lost income to us, because it's very unlikely that we would be able to rent your room to someone else - most visitors would have already booked a room at some other place. Large hotels can afford the cancellations - we cannot, sorry. Thank you for your understanding
