About marino barsotti

We Silvia e Marino,love very much our region,Tuscany,and even if we live on the tyrrenian coast,along the famous tuscan beaches,in countryside,we often go to visit the artistic towns of our land,and Firenze is,in our opinion,the most fascinating.

marino barsotti purchased this apartment in 2006

Why marino barsotti chose Florence

We have a lot of friends in Firenze and also we spent many times in the town to visit art exibitions,to join operas,or only to walk along the narrow streets of the center of the town. Our work is linked to tourism,so we decided to buy an apartment in that area that we think to be the most interesting in the town.One of the few traditional quarters of Firenze that seem to be the same in the years.

What makes this apartment unique

Silvia gave the apartment the spirit of the traditional florentine and tuscan houses,even if You'll find in the apartment all the conforts You need to spend relaxing days in Firenze

Beautiful and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were friendly and personally gave a nice introduction in the apartment and even offered any kind of help is we needed more info about florence city.

The apartment is very clean and well maintained, location is just around 3 mins walk to santa croce square!

I would recommend this house for travellers to florence as no hotel apartments can offer as good as a deal to this.

This immaculate pad is right in the heart of town, about 15 minutes walk from Duomo and Santa Maria. It is tastefully done, which is no surprise,it's more beautiful then in the pictures! The home is a stone's throw from all key landmarks. Equipped with all amenities, the apartment is located very close to a number of fantastic restaurants and bars. The Sant'Ambrogio market is a couple of minutes walk.Silvia is a wonderful host.

The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is full equipped,with fantastic oven to cook something different every night!

I return !

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here last here, and I returned! I go to Silvia and Marino's apt every time I must go to Florence for my job because the apartment is really confortable. Moreover this time I have found some good news in the house: new matress, new dish-machine, new paintings and photos on the walls and new windows (perfect for maintaining heat and noise).

The flat is really in the city center, only 2 minutes walking from Piazza Santa Croce (my favourite!), and closed to bus and taxi stations.

Recommended!

Great location, not too touristy but accessible to all destinations in Florence

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Marino's flat for our 3 day stay in Florence. The location was probably the biggest plus as it was still close enough to the city center where all the destinations were located with fellow tourists, restaurants, shops, etc but in fact, it was 10-15 min walk away from those scenes. It is a loft on the top floor, so you need to walk up the stairs which didn't bother us. However, being a loft, the sleeping area/closet was on the upper-level where the bathroom was on the lower-level which we found a bit annoying but for the sake of an experience, we gave it a pass. The kitchen was well-equipped although we didn't do much cooking at all and of course, having a washer was another advantage. Stay here if you want one of the best lampredotto sandwiches which is just a block or two away.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay in Marino's place. It's a very cool, comfortable apartment in what feels like a more slice-of-life part of town--not many tourists. It was fairly close to everything and was the perfect hub for an all-around great stay.

Beautiful Apartment in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many apartments in Florence and especially liked this one. The neighborhood is great...near so many things and within walking distance of all of Firenze. The apartment is very big with high ceilings. It is beautifully decorated with many lovely touches. The kitchen is large and well stocked. I found the apartment quiet...which is important to me. No problems with the wifi, the shower is great. You have to walk up, but this is typical for Florence...I was met promptly to check in and received a very nice welcome.

I will stay here again. I highly recommend it.

excellent and silent

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days in this lovely flat. Even if in the center of the town it was very silent and relaxing. The host, Madu, was nice and gave us some tips around the area and the restaurants. Near the apartment there was a popular market, we found local food, vegetable and fruits. Very easy communicate with the owners, that live in another town near Florence. The forniture is tasteful
