About Us


Welcome to your 
florentine residence.

The Bed & Breakfast Residenza Cecchi is a small accommodation facility stemming from an old family abode.It’s all started back in 1927 when my great-grandfather, a Sardinian bricklayer veteran of the Russian campaign, built this residence calling it “Villino Carta”.Thanks to the recent renovation, we are ready to welcome guests who wish to enjoy peace, quiet and a bit of magic.

Crossing the entrance door you are catapulted into a real Florentine residence. We cured every detail to make the experience of the stay unique and unforgettable.The floors are those of the past, the furniture has that taste of ancient that brings you immediately back in time, combining them with all the comforts of today.

In the common areas you shall relax reading a good book of our collection, or watching television in the lounge, enjoying a good coffee or fresh fruit in the kitchen, or get a breath of fresh air in our garden.

Located on the left bank of the Arno in the historic district of Gavinana, from our b&b you may walk to Ponte Vecchio or Piazza Santa Croce in just 20 minutes, or arrive at the evocative Piazzale Michelangelo in 15 minutes with a relaxing walk along the Viale dei Colli, from where you are able to cherish the city of Florence in all its beauty.

The b&b Residenza Cecchi is the perfect place to relax, take the time to reflect on your own journey and to be stimulated to visit the countless beauties of Florence.
