Located in Empoli, only a 25 minutes' drive from Florence, the first and oldest part of a historical family villa, 'I MELOGRANI' (The Pomegranates) Bed & Breakfast is owned by a friendly Italian-English family.
It is set in the countryside and surrounded by typical Tuscan landscape of olive trees and vine groves and is situated at the end of a quiet country road 10 minutes from the local town Empoli, 25 minutes from Florence, 45 minutes from Pisa, 1 hour from Siena, 45 minutes from San Gimignano and 1 hour from Lucca.

'A wonderful bed and breakfast outside Florence is I Melograni, located just South-east of Empoli. This is a convenient location for train trips to Florence and Siena. The owners are very engaging and made our stay very enjoyable. This is a beautiful family villa, within a short distance to many hill towns.'
