About Carla

I'm Tuscan and i adore every part of this region. I adore travel and i try to treat my guests like i would like to be treated. I hope to be able to make your holiday as pleasent as possible!

Why Carla chose Florence

It's the ideal location to visit Florence: in the hearth of the city you can live like a typical florentine citizen and enjoying the best part of this wonderful city.

What makes this apartment unique

At the opposite side of the street where is located the apartment there is a supermarket open everyday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm (21.00) also on Sunday. I suggest also to visit the Historical market of San Lorenzo at five minuts by walk from the apartment where you can buy every type of food from 7:00am to 2:00 pm (14) and eat or drink at the first floor from 10am to midnight everyday!

Our home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently rented an apartment in Florence, Italy for 5 weeks (9/28-11/3) through Home Away. There were many choices available but after spending much time researching them, we decided to rent from Carla and struck GOLD! The location of the apartment is perfect. It is in the center of Florence, steps away from the Duomo, across the street from a market and close to all conveniences as well as the taxi's and train station. It is a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport (22 euros). The apartment itself is very clean, nicely decorated, well furnished with a very comfortable bed and has everything that you might need during your stay, including AC. Carla is the most gracious, helpful and pleasant person to deal with. Upon our arrival, there was a basket of fresh fruit waiting for us as well as juice in the refrigerator. We were supplied with clean linens and towels on a regular basis. Carla was a wealth of information. It truly became our "home away from home" and when we return to Italy we will be returning right back to Carla's place.

Fantastic little apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I are from Canada and we went to stay in Carla's apartment for four nights while visiting Florence in September. Carla met us at the train station and helped us buy our train tickets for the Cinque Terre before walking with us to her apartment about 10 minutes away. On the way to the apartment Carla gave us a lot of good info. Like where to find the Centrale Market and what time it is open and where to go for dinner and where to find the grocery store. She is very helpful and her English is great.

The apartment was perfect for us. The air conditioning was nice and cool and the kitchen had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this apartment!

Beautiful apartment in the heart of Florence

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Carla's beautiful little apartment during Easter week and enjoyed every minute of it. The apartment is very nice inside and it's actually good that it doesn't face a street as there's a lot of nightly noise in the town centre. To get to the apartment you climb three steep floors and then - presto - you step into this wonderfully renovated apartment with three rooms and a bathroom.

There's everything you need in the apartment and it's very beautifully and personally decorated.

When you step outside you're two steps from the Duomo in one direction and San Lorenzo in the other direction. There is an abundance of restaurants in the street and a very good supermarket specializing in local food just across the street.

There is A/C in the apartment, but I can imagine that it could be a bit stuffy and hot during the really hot season in July and August. But it's a perfect place to stay outside the high season, nine - ten months of the year.

Owner's Response: Thanks Maria, in the summer season Florence is usually very hot but i guarantee that there is a powerful air con in the bedroom! Hope to see you again! Carla

just great!

  • 5 of 5

Carla's apartment was perfect for our stay in Florence- literally minutes away from the Dome and everywhere else we wanted to go. We stayed there for a week and really enjoyed the space itself- clean, tastefully decorated, well equipped. The windows face the courtyard, so there is no noise from the street. The welcome was the best of anywhere we got on our trip: Carla met us at the train station , walked us to the apartment and showed how everything works. There are a couple of supermarkets walking distance, we preferred the one literally right across the street. The apartment is highly recommended. Thank you Carla!

Great location, excellent host.

  • 5 of 5

Our seven night stay during September was very nice. Clara met us at the train station to walk us the the apartment and show us around. The central location is great for getting around Florence or walking to the train station for day trips. The Conad supermarket is conveniently located directly across the bustling street. The place was clean and everything worked--the clothes washer and clothes lines were very handy.

There's a little noise from the adjacent restaurant in the bedroom but it quiets down after 11:00 PM. We enjoyed the comfortable bed after a long day of sightseeing.

Carla and the flat were charming. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to all.
