Set in the hills around Florence, the Relais Marignolle is the perfect escape from the summer heat and city crowds.


Following a successful career in the fashion industry, the Bullery family transformed their villa into a luxury boutique hotel with nine spacious rooms each with a heavy dose of the owners’ impeccable taste and attention to detail.


Ideal for those who appreciate style and tradition, the Relais Marignolle offers luxurious double rooms or junior suites furnished with antique furniture, period prints and small collectors' items.


Outside, there is a lovely secluded pool with a sun deck and far-reaching views.


The rooms are air conditioned and soundproofed, have a satellite TV and safe, direct telephone and wireless internet, a very spacious and well-equipped built-in closet, large bathrooms with oversized mirrors and a double white marble sink.


There is a Junior Suite with 4 beds.


Served in the garden under the gazebo, the breakfast is an exquisite buffet with sweet and savoury choices.


There is no official restaurant but light meals and simple quality dinners can be arranged.


The nearby Trattoria Bibe is located only 250 meters and offers a courtesy car, otherwise the centre of Florence is only 15-minute taxi ride. Lorenzo will happily recommend.


Marignolle's location, between 5 and 10km from Florence, allows you to get the best of the sights and the tranquillity of the Chianti hills.

Travel along picturesque roads bordered by vineyards and ancient villas, and discover some of Tuscany’s most attractive towns: the Renaissance's pearls of Siena, Lucca, Arezzo and Pistoia are within easy driving distance as are the quiet medieval towns of San Gimignano and Volterra.





Golf and tennis nearby

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to more
