It all started 20 years ago. We dreamt of opening an English style guest house in Florence which didn't exist in the city at that time, and when Johanan inherited a beautiful home in the historical center our first Residence was born. We had great success and thus felt encourages to open other small bed and breakfasts, all in the center, and thus our small group of charming B&Bs called "Antiche Dimore Fiorentine" was born. Today, Johanna I, Antica Dimora Johlea, Antica Dimora Firenze, Casa Tornabuoni and Casa del Mercato are part of our group.
Everything in the residences was personally selected by us: the furnishings, decorations, colors and every detail. Our guests, who receive keys to the house, come to feel like guests in a home thanks to the wonderful hospitality offered by our staff, who welcome guests to each of the bed and breakfasts as if it was their home.
We await your visit in one of our homes!
