If I were to summarize our stay at Laura's, I would say a piece of Florence within Florence. A retreat with personality befitting Florence and its fame, I will definitely remember this house and the landlady. If too tired and want to give your feet a break, you can surely stay in house for the day. The lovely terrace (we staid in the studio) offers magnificent views over the Tuscan landscape, and yes this is one part of Florence where you are surrounded by nature (and the inherent mosquitos!). The library within your room offers delicious reading and the way the interiors are decorated prove elegance and are true to Florentine style and taste. Short snaps of beautiful memories: the way we shaded ourselves in house when afternoon sun was basting, with those Tuscan-green shutters, preparing breakfast in the cozy & elegant kitchenette (very well accessorized and well provided for!), having breakfast in the upper terrace which opens so nicely over the Tuscan hills and the nice Florentine properties, arriving home after the hustle and bustle of the city and the swarm of tourists - arriving, in the quiet and perfectly private garden; the gate - beautiful wood gates self opening on key and my son watching them wide-eyed; looking for shade in the ample garden surrounding the house with perfectly placed tables; the elegant turquoise studio bathroom, really no compromises! Should I want to find a flaw, really can't. One last thing - the landlady, Laura is a genuinely nice person - very helpful and very warm, a lady we'll remember dearly.

We stayed in the garden apartment which gives you independent access. The apartment is lovely, with generous welcome basket and matched by Laura the owners hospitality. The city centre is easily accessible by foot or bus and the apartment allows you to relax in peace once you have finished sightseeing each day.

The Apartment, 1400m from Old Brige, is located in a beautiful Villa in Via San Leonardo, historic lane connecting the Astronomical Observatory G.Galilei on the hill of Arcetri with Forte Belvedere and Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge).The Villa ,an ancient hay-loft, was renovated by owner and it is surrounded by a garden with vines, wisteria pergolas, laurel hedges and cypress trees.

Via San Leonardo is a narrow road through antique buildings, olive groves and gardens in the protected and silent area landscape, with few inhabitants – villas and farmhouses converted into artists’ studios, that takes about twenty minutes to walk to the Old Bridge. Walking towards the Old Bridge: Chalet Fontana, historic meeting place of writers and artists, the house of Tchaikovskij, the famous painter Ottone Rosai's studio, the Church of San Leonardo in Arcetri of XI century and passing close by Forte Belvedere of XVI century.

From Forte Belvedere a gate leads into Boboli Garden and Pitti Palace, but if you go through the door of old walls, you find Bardini Museum of Macchiaioli, Galileo's home and Ponte Vecchio.

Piazzale Michelangelo is a walking distance with its marvellous view of Firenze
