    We had a bit of difficulty finding the apartment initially due to a large amount of construction going on in the city however once we did find it we were so warmly welcomed. Both Claudia and her son made us feel so at home and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful if they tried. The breakfasts each morning were so delicious with so many options to choose from. The apartment is only about 15-20 minute walk to the city centre. We would definitely stay here again!!

    Hello friends,
    We have a good time with Claudia family. She has a very warm manner. Her son is very friendly. They both are very helpful during out stay. She is a great cook. My wife and I and three other people enjoy her foods, and we don't have to be worry about where to eat dinner. Eating at Claudia's house is just like to eat at home.

    The location of the house is very convenient to public transportation, and about 10-15 mins by bus to all Florence museums or other attractions.

    Highly recommended.

    I really enjoyed my stay with Claudia, Gabriele and Spi, they are lovely, easygoing people (and a parrot) and immediately took me as their adopted daughter :) The house is really nice. This family is a paradise for those enjoying healthy vegetarian food! I'll definitely return!
