Customer Reviews

I had an absolutely lovely time!
- CA, United States (December 2017)
Was perfect.
- Otago, New Zealand (June 2017)
Large, beautiful rooms opening out onto a peaceful courtyard. Lovely street in a gorgeous part of Florence, just walking distance from the Piazzale Michelangelo, which overlooks the city. The sisters were very helpful and accommodating, and provided great hospitality. We would stay here again.
- OH, United States (June 2017)
Excellent.
- OR, United States (May 2017)
This was my favorite place on the whole trip. Everyone was so nice, the whole place was so warm and inviting and clean. And the staff could not have been any more accommodating. I loved the decor, the "our home is your home" feel of the place. It was lovely all the way around, and if I every get the chance to return to Florence, I will stay here!
- IN, United States (February 2017)
No signage; makes it difficult to find. Walk to Duomo over a mile; a little longer than I would like. Beautiful property. Room was very nice. Staff and breakfast easily the best of our three monastery stays.
