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 also offer Italian cooking lessons, watercolor lessons, Italian and English lessons.
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.

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

    Nous avons été ravis de notre séjour à Florence chez Jeanne et Fabio. Très bon accueil, des soirées sympathiques avec nos hôtes alors que nous parlons très peu l'italien.

    The apartment is bang in the centre of Florence and about a ten minute walk from the central train station.

    Jeane and Fabio were warm and welcoming and the room was clean, tidy and quiet.

    We were able to come and go as we pleased yet spend time chatting with the family too.

    Would recommend a stay with Jeanne and Fabio

    Jeanne and Fabio are lovely people.
    They have a wonderful apartment located directly in the historic centre of Florence. You can walk to any of the famous attractions in just 10 minutes! It really is a perfect location from which to explore Florence. I had dinner with the family a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed the authentic Italian meal. Fabio will always ask you to have more, so you will need to tell him when you simply cannot eat another bite!

    Jeanne et Fabio sont des gens adorables.
    Ils ont un merveilleux appartement situé directement dans le centre historique de Florence. Vous pouvez marcher à l'une des attractions célèbres en seulement 10 minutes! C'est vraiment un endroit parfait pour partir à la découverte de Florence. J'ai dîné avec la famille à plusieurs reprises et j'ai vraiment apprécié le repas italien authentique. Fabio vous demandera toujours d'en avoir plus, alors vous devrez lui dire quand vous ne pourrez plus manger une autre bouchée!

    Location cannot be beat. Right in the center. Say yes to dinner with Jeanne and Fabio. It was really good! Shared bathroom, single beds, closet with hangers, drying rack, power outlets, hairdryer, one towel. Bring your own toiletries, wifi a little spotty in the back of the room but better in the main areas, and Fabio smokes (if that bothers you). Definitely recommend!

    I had a very good stay at Jeanne and Fabio house. The room was comfortable, quiet. Jeanne and Fabio were very good hosts. For the breakfast, bread and homemade marmelade, tea. I had a dinner with them (15€) which was really good. The appartement is very well located, in a few minutes you are in the very touristic center of Florence. I highly recommand Keanne and Fabio house.

    The place it is central and by that I mean that it is at 5 min from the Dome and 10 min from Uffizi museum. The hosts are easy going and really helpful. We really appreciated our stay.
