We live in a historic home in the very CENTER of FLORENCE near the famous David, Ponte Vecchio, and Catherdal. Forget stress for buses; we are next door to museums and monuments.
With a 10 minute walk to bus/train stations you can leave for daytrips to the seaside, or to famous towns like Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, or for trekking in Cinque Terre or for winetasting tours in the Tuscan hillsides.
We have been hosting students for decades.
I love to cook, so breakfast includes my jams homemade with fruit from our place in the country. For evening meals just ask, we will be glad to give you a taste of the famous Tuscan specialties!
My husband smokes the occasional cigar -Toscano, of course!

Additional Info

We speak English, Italian and a little Spanish.

    Beautiful apartment located in the heart of Florence. Jeanne & Fabio were kind and gracious hosts who made me feel very comfortable. Enjoyed their hospitality and the delicious dinners with them. A great location for anyone who wants to enjoy Florence by foot. A 10 minute walk to the Santa Maria Novella train station. So convenient.

    Our stance here was just perfect, Janne and Fabio are really kind.
    The location is the best, in the heart of the city, you can go everywhere from the house just by walking a few minutes. The bedroom and the house in general was clean and peaceful; the bed is super confortable, so you can rest very well after an exhausting day.
    The shower always with hot water and a very good coffe in the mornings.

    Il posto è molto carino in un’ottima zona del centro di Firenze. I proprietari sono molto gentili e accoglienti. Un ottimo soggiorno!

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile.
