Relais Grand Tour

In the authentic atmosphere of historic Florence...

Relais Grand Tour

The individuality of my B&B expresses itself amongst other things through the use of a once-popular small private theater as a large apartment and also as an event space.  The stage, proscenium, the flooring...you can still feel the typical air and a bit of magic.

The ambiance of the B&B is that of an elegant Florentine house with traces of the 18th century, a quiet elegance in the rooms, furnished with antiques, family paintings, coffered ceilings. Many details came to light while restoring the property, as well as the discovery of a small private theater with its stage and seating for the public. The gold-leaf decorations on the ceiling, the colored pavement, handcrafted lamps, and chandelier...simply a warm atmosphere to rest after a day of exploring this wonderful city.

After the most recent renovation in 2018, I decided to utilize this part of the house both as an apartment complete with a kitchen, and also for tailor-made events like intimate wedding ceremonies, art exhibitions, wine tastings, and the list goes on.

OwnerThe Owner

The owner, that is me, Ulrike, I live in the same place you have chosen for your holidays in Florence and it is easy to meet me in the B&B to ask me for advice on restaurants, museums, walks, wine tastings, places to visit. I know Florence well because I love it as a tourist and now as a 'resident', and I will be happy to let you experience my city 'as a local', letting you discover the things that appeal to me and the other residents of Florence. I can tell you about the hidden art treasures, even simple views that will leave you breathless, the path of the most beautiful churches in Florence, the romantic walks along the Ponte Vecchio and along the Arno river in Florence, where many films have been shot and many other hidden treasures been found.

I am German but lived for three decades in the United States where I started a family and where my two children still live. I feel like a citizen of the world but my heart beats for Italy and Florence where I have decided to live for now. Taking care of the guests of my B&B is a dream come true and making your stay memorable is my greatest pleasure. From a very young age on I spent all my holidays with my family in Tuscany, both in the summer and for Easter, and I feel really lucky to be here, ready to pass on all my experiences!
