Are you searching for a place to enjoy the city from a local perspective?
Welcome at Savino's, a REAL homestay experience! :)
In my own and completely renovated apartment I have a huge room for those people who want to try a different kind of homestay: I love interacting with my guests, give them a lot of tips about this beautiful city and especially make them feel at home, staying at my place is not just like renting an anonymous room and nothing more. :)
You'll find blankets, sheets and pillows, all the necessary for a good rest.
You can use the kitchen if you want, just ask me how it works.
Free wi-fi and hot water 24 hours.
I'll give you the keys of the apartment so you can freely get in-out without any problem. No curfew and no cleaning fees.
My flat is at the 2nd of a 6 floors building, with elevator.
Check-in after 16.40 when I come back from work, check-ou flexible, I don't like to kick people out like hotels ;)
Considering you'll share the apartment with me I'd really appreciate if you send me some informations about you, with whom you are travelling, your travelling purpose, etc. Thanks :)
Furthermore, I recently decided to offer private car tours of the Chianti region, based on my availability, a unique experience way better than the typical tour operators, just ask me for details!
Any question you have don't hesitate to contact me, ciao!

    I had a great time in Florence with Savino. Savino is a great host. He is friendly and helpful. He provided me with a map and gave me a lot of suggestions/advice about Florence. His apartment is clean and spacious. It is located in a nice neighborhood. It is within walking distance of the train station and the attractions of Florence. Savino helped to make my stay much easier and problem free. Savino is a 5-star host- I highly recommend him and would like to return one day

    accueil chaleureux, grande chambre dans appartement moderne ET PROPRE, pas loin du centre ville de Florence, bus et tram, très pratique. De plus, plusieurs commerces sur la Place SAN JACOPINO et conseils avisés de SAVINO sur le choix de la Trattoria à proximité. Adresse à recommander. Nous y retournerons.

    I loved my stay at Savino’s home! I never caught pubic transport as I preferred to walk, but the apartment is in a convenient place with a short walk to the bus, tram and the main train station SNM. Savino is a gracious host who gave me many great recommendations of where to eat and good spots to take photos. The room is spacious and very comfortable. I would highly recommend staying with Savino! I will definitely book again the next time I’m in this beautiful city! Thanks for the great stay!

    Eravamo in due e siamo state benissimo. La casa è pulita e fornita di ogni cosa. Savino è stato disponibilissimo ed accogliente, ci ha lasciato libere di preparare la colazione con una gran varietà di prodotti (succhi, marmellate, caffè,...). L'host perfetto, senza dubbio.
