Chiara & Francesco purchased this apartment in 2013
'A casa tua' , in your home, is an apartment we really love..another little piece of our life together, completely refurbished and redesigned by us in the most beautiful district of all of Florence! Here's how to always be on vacation..
Loved the neighbourhood, just about ten minutes distance from the river. All tourist sites within easy walking distance. Compact kitchen, that should have a chopping board and a can opener as standard equipment. Very comfortable bed.
We stayed here Oct 10 - Oct 18, 2016. This is a small but fully equipped and very nice apartment on the other side of the Arno but near to everything in the city and gives a great opportunity to explore Oltrarno which is becoming a destination in itself. The owner, Chiara, is delightful to work with and extremely responsive. The apartment is in an old building - dating back hundreds of years - but the interior is quite modern and very functional. We had everything we needed, comfortable bed, nice kitchen, small but just fine eating/living area. There was so much to do in the area and the apartment is easily accessible to all attractions and many great eating places. We loved the wine bar around the corner, among lots of other places. We would highly recommend this apartment. Do know the doors are narrow but we had no problems getting in and out. It was a delightful stay on all levels. It is also well priced for what you get and the area it is in. Loved it!!!!
A perfect stay in Santo Spirito.
The apartment was immaculate, and perfect for our stay. Place is in a great location of Santo Spirito, away from the main tourist attrcations and very close to chic resaturants and bars, we loved the area.
Charia is a quintessential host, so helpful and accomodating.
We all would unquestionably return.
This is a small but comfortable one bedroom apartment in Santo Spirito, close to main atractions in Florence but a bit removed from the crowded center. Chiara is a delightful owner who provides attentive and prompt feedback at all times and seems genuinely concerned with the well being of her guests. Will return.
What a lovely apartment! Great location just a few blocks from Palazzo Pitti. The owners were very helpful, providing information on sightseeing, buses and great restaurants in the Oltrarno area. An easy walk into central Florence or take the #11 bus up to train station or San Marco Piazza and walk back through all the sites. I spent 5 nights here and could have stayed for weeks. Often went sightseeing, then back to the apartment for a rest before dinner. The description and pictures are exactly right. Fully supplied kitchen, comfortable bed, lots of closet and storage space. I was so glad to be in such a quiet safe location in this lovely part of Florence. One night a neighbor had a party in the courtyard, but everything was settled by 10:30.
Wonderful restaurants in that area included Il Santo Graal, Cuculia, Trattoria Giovanni, Trattoria Pandemonio, and of course Santa Trinita Gelato just off the bridge.
Chiara's apartment is a perfectly comfortable, functional place to stay while visiting Florence. The flat felt new, was clean and matched the description provided by Chiara. All of our dealings with the owner were fast and friendly.
We stayed for one week and I have to say that the Oltrarno quarter (on the other side of the river) where the apartment is located was in many ways our favourite part of Florence. You could actually spend your entire stay just roaming the streets and squares of this neighbourhood and have a wonderful vacation without ever going to piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, gli Uffizi, etc etc, although no one would ever do that! The cafes, bars, and shops in this part of town are more local and down to earth compared to the more famous part of the Historic Center, but Oltrarno boasts the Santo Spirito, Santa Maria del Carmine, Santa Felicita, and San Miniato churches along with Palazzo Pitti and Piazzale Michelangelo. For a great Bistecca alla Fiorentina try the very local and cosy l' Brindellone trattoria (you'll need a reservation). If the weather is good it is also worth strolling in the neighbourhood's lovely, historic gardens. One thing I found curious is that in many older guide books (especially Italian ones) this neighbourhood was always described as being a working class and artisan part of town. Well, many of the artisans are still around, but it's hard to imagine a working class neighbourhood with so many monumental Renaissance palaces!!!
I highly recommend the apartment and as I hope I've made obvious, the wonderful Oltrarno neighbourhood.

We are in the heart of the Oltrarno, on the left bank of the Arno River - just across the Ponte Vecchio - in a strategic area to visit and discover the main monuments and the most beautiful squares of Florence. The Basilica of the Holy Spirit, with the famous crucifix carved by Michelangelo, is just few steps, whilst Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery can be reached in few minutes by walk. The apartment is located within the old city walls, in the restricted traffic zone ZTL. We therefore advise you to leave your car in one of the many public car parks which are located about 350 meters from the apartment and reach through a short and pleasant walk, or if you want in a toll parking near the apartment. The area is also very well served by public transport. The main railway station of Santa Maria Novella is'less than 1 km away and the nearest bus stop is just 100 meters from the apartment. Nearby there are several shops, nice restaurants, bars and wine bars, as well as shops with all necessities.
