    Pasamos unos dias hermosos alojados en la casa de Teresa. Ella es una persona encantadora,nos ayudo en todo lo que necesitamos. Ella y su esposo Andrea son muy serviciales y nos hicieron sentir como en nuestra casa. El desayuno es abuntante y delicioso. Teresa estuvo atenta a cada detalle en lo referente a nuestra estadia. Teresa es una anfitriona genial, si vuelvo a visitar Florencis me alojaria en su casa sin lugar a dudas. Totalmente recomendable!!

    Our host was great. She was very helpful. The only thing I wasn’t too impressed about was the breakfast. She had sweet rolls everyday. I would have preferred cheese or toast or even cereal of some sort. Overall it was a great stay.

    Une adresse incontournable à Florence, par sa situation, au pied du Ponte Vecchio (mieux située il ne peux pas y avoir ! ).
    Nous retiendrons la gentillesse de Teresa et Andréa ainsi que la connaissance et l'Amour de cette ville musée que nous transmet Teresa dans son très bon Français, sans compter ses connaissances et compétences touristiques sur l'Art et l'histoire de Florence et de l'Italie en général.
    Nous avons rencontré une personne très instruite et cultivée qui n’était pas avare de renseignements autour d'un déjeuner digne d'un grand hôtel ou d'un apéritif improvisé.
    Une autre qualité de Teresa, la cuisine dont elle aime parler et apprécier l'échange de recettes.
    La chambre et la salle de bain était conformes à la description et même mieux.
    Pour nous touristes, les renseignements pratiques de Teresa sur le (ou les) bus ou trains à prendre, les bonnes adresses de restaurants, les jardins et musées à ne pas manquer......était au top !
    Encore Merci Teresa et Andrea !!! une adresse que nous conseillons vivement.

    Chers Martine et Jean Marc, merci des belles paroles! Je pense que c'est nous les hosts qui devraient remercier les hotes ( les guests) qui viennent nous enrichir avec leurs parcours de vie, leurs expérience, leur humanité. C'est votre cas. Je vous remercie et je vous attends encore une fois à Florence!

    Probably the greatest place any traveler could stay in Florence! Fantastic location. Beautiful terrace in which to relax and take in Tuscany food. Teresa and her husband went out of their way to make me feel welcome. Teresa made every effort to find specialty stores I needed and helped plan out my touring. I could not have done it without her expertise and organization. Can't imagine staying anywhere else! I will stay with her next time I travel to Florence. Thanks for everything you did for me Teresa!

    My homestay with Teresa was very memorable. She was, warm, caring and a loving person.
    I learnt some Italian cooking, we went out for dinner, visited local markets and some sightseeing. She also cooked some amazing dinners for me.

    I highly recommend this place.
