mòsì is just steps away from the city center. Located below Piazzale Michelangelo, we are just 15 minutes by foot from Piazza Santa Croce and 20 minutes from Ponte Vecchio. Located on Via B. Fortini, it is truly amazing: an unexpected, off-the-beaten path perspective of Florence, a walk in the countryside while never leaving the city center.
Mòsì is situated within an elegant turn-of-the-century Art Nouveau villa,every room is decorated with the utmost attention to detail.
mòsì is a new kind of bed&breakfast. It is a place that brings together the comfort and sense of familiarity of a B&B with a hostel’s social and laid back atmosphere. Room D it is our most spacious double bedroom, it has a large private bathroom and a double window overlooking the Tuscan countryside. The decor is a unique blend of retro and contemporary, with elegant chosen pieces.This room is ideal for small groups or a family traveling with a child. It is equipped with a hairdryer, wifi, individually adjustable climate control (heating and air conditioning).
The attention to detail in furnishings; the homemade Italian breakfasts; the sense of community in the common spaces, the warm, smiling faces; my goal is to constantly seek out new events and activities to share with my guests and create a sense of community. This is Mòsì-a place where travelers are welcome and experiences can be shared.
The places that I love most are shared with everyone: guests and friends. mòsì is a cozy gathering place where locals and travelers can meet, share their experiences, ask for advice, and enjoy good conversation.
At mòsì there is a lot to discover: the cheerful Kitchen that looks out on the garden, an ideal place to relax on our hammock and watch the sunset while sipping a glass of wine. The Thinking Room, with its collection of Human Rights books or the Living Room/Study where you can read, work, look through photos of your trip or even play the guitar!
Interaction with guests
mòsì is a small dream that came about during my travels around the world. I love the feelings and the connections that you can only make with fellow travelers: the excitement of discovering new places, sharing travel stories, that sparkle you get in your eyes when you think of a new destination, the fascination of discovering new scents, flavors and the culinary delights of a new country.
Other things to note
Our B&B is new, opened its doors the first of january 2017.
Breakfast is served each morning from 8:30 to 10AM in the cool garden in summer and in the kitchen in winter.
Cakes, jams, warm croissants, freshly baked pies and warm bread will be homemade whenever possible.
We will also have biscuits and cookies, melba toast, muesli, cereal, yogurt and seasonal fruit, as well as freshly squeezed orange juice and a selection of hot drinks (coffee, cappuccino, tea, barley coffee).
I started to think and to dream about this place during one of my solo travels, when I learned the real meaning of sharing, and how incredibly important a warm and friendly smile is, especially when you are far from home. I opened my home to friends I made travelling around the world: that’s when I began thinking of welcoming them to a bigger home, a place that would greet them, unite them, embrace them.
