Located just seven kilometres from the centre of Florence, the XIV century building of Pensione Bencistà offers the possibility of sleeping in Fiesole, in a welcoming atmosphere recalling an historic and yet intimate accommodation. All elegantly furnished with antiques, the forty rooms of the Pensione Bencistà are unmistakable in their charm, each one with its own unique character.
Although they have a fast to meet every need of modern life, you will not find televisions in our rooms: the show is revealed in the poetry of the unique atmosphere of a family home preserved in its simplicity and sophistication.
While from the windows of each room you can admire the relaxing greenery of the Fiesole hill, some rooms offer, from the bed, from an armchair or even from a poetic balcony, a breath-taking view over the splendid skyline of the city of Florence.
Spacious rooms to welcome you and your family, travel mates or colleagues. With a charming view over the hills of Fiesole, the triple rooms of Pensione Bencistà are the perfect location for a regenerating rest.
In our Superior Room you will find a timeless atmosphere: a private balcony overlooking the Renaissance Florence, with no compromise for comfort.
I cannot recommend this pensione enough. Have been there several times, most recently with a friend. The old world charm is undeniably the best in Fiesole.
You can’t describe the feeling of opening your window and gaze out upon Florence and the looming duomo in the morning!
The view of Tuscany from its terraces are unbeatable as well as it’s caring and helpful staff and marvelous antique rooms.
Idyllic and just what we needed.
The location is picturesque but outside of the city of Florence. If you come and are planning on tourism in the city, please understand that Bencista is a charming retreat outside the city.
