The apartment is located in an early 20th century Art Nouveau villa restored while maintaining the beauty of the era, but adding our personal creativity. The furniture is mainly made of recycled objects and this, from a vintage and timeless taste, to our home. Plants are the main ornament, for us it is like having our little wood.
The room of mq.18 with private bathroom, television, large wardrobe, shoe rack, bedside tables and 2 lamps is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Florence.
Equipped with sheets and towels.
The bathroom with toilet, bidet, comfortable shower and necessary products such as shampoo and shower gel.
We live in the same apartment, but our rooms are located on the upper floor.

    Stefania and her family create a wonderful homestay experience through their friendly, easy going style and beautiful home. I spent two weeks with Stefania, Luca and their daughter Giulia and couldn’t have been happier. They accepted me into their family and I enjoyed spending many memorable evenings with them around the dinner table.

    Their house has been recently refurbished and is tastefully furnished and well maintained. The guest bedroom is very comfortable and complete with its own ensuite full bathroom. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, surrounded by many beautiful, larger estates. At the same time, it is convenient to central Florence. Many times I walked into town so that I could enjoy seeing the neighborhoods along the way. I could easily reach Ponte Vecchio on the edge of central Florence in about 25 minutes. There is also a bus stop very close to the house for the times when you don’t feel like walking.

    I highly recommend Stefania and her family as a host family and look forward to returning to see them again in the future.

    L’ Accueil est chaleureux. On peut utiliser la cuisine et la chambre est grande avec un lit est très confortable. Il y a une belle grande douche. C’est tout près à pied du centre
    Merci à Stefania et Lucas!

    We have to send a big hug to our lovely hosts Stefania & Luca. A lovely apartment that had everything. And our hosts looked after so we had every thing we needed. We can highly recommend this apartment that is located in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Off from the city but still very close to the center of Florence.

    Un très bon séjour passé chez Luca, Stefania e Giulia : l'accueil y est chaleureux et familial, des hôtes qui aiment échanger, la maison propre, agréable, calme, proche du centre-ville et bien desservie, leur cuisine tout simplement excellente. Il n'y a pas à hésiter pour réserver, on n'apprécie tout au contraire le lieu après de lourdes journées! Léa et Pauline.

    They never changed the towels or the bed sheets. Never clean the bathroom. Just want money but really don't care about people. For have a little hostal need to be responsable and smile all the time.

    am sorry that the services and hospitality did not live up to your expectations, it seems to me excessive to change towels every day with a stay of 3!

    So many wonderful things to say. The house is in a great location, easy to get to things but out of the crazy amount of people that Florence has. The location was much cooler temperature in June than down in the town. The room is clean and comfortable. Luca, Julia & Stefania were very kind and welcoming. Loved this experience

    Sono stata ospite di Stefania, Luca e la piccola Giulia lo scorso weekend e mi sono trovata molto bene. L'appartamento è posto in un tranquillo e silenzioso quartiere circondato da verde leggermente distante dal centro che tuttavia è facilmente raggiungibile con il bus posto a pochi metri dalla casa. La stanza è spaziosa, estremamente pulita e riservata. I proprietari di casa sono disponibili, educati e rispettosi della privacy degli ospiti. Consiglio questo appartamento a chiunque!

    Lucas et Stefania sont vraiment très sympathiques!
    Accueil efficace et chaleureux!
    Nous avons pu garer notre voiture juste devant l'appartement. ..
    La chambre est composée d'une suite parentale très jolie avec lavabo WC et douche.
    Le centre ville est situé entre 2 et 3 km.
    Nous conseillons vivement cette location!
